It's not that I am ignoring you, it's just not something you want to say NO! to over and over and over and over again...We've been saying NO for nearly TEN LONG MONTHS!
It's getting old.
Do you realize we could have conceived, carried and birthed a baby by now? Which by the way is impossible.
NO! Aaron does not have a job yet. He has had several interviews...several. A few times it has come down to 'him and the other guy,' and for some reason they choose 'the other guy.' I'm starting to think it is SO MUCH WORSE to get that far....then SHOT DOWN! Than it is to just not interview at all.
Yeah, it's worse.
This hasn't been easy.
No question there.
*Unemployment only lasts until the first of December (luckily...when we first got it, it was only good until June)
*It's hard to see a husband that has worked his butt (I really want to use a different word - ass) off for years going to school so our future will only be better, when really it is looking...not so hot.
*It's hard to have to tell the kidlets NO! over and over and over because we can't afford it right now.
*It's hard to go to school everyday knowing that I am doing something I have wanted to do forever and that I am LOVING it, while he is trying to find a job.
*My nagging has got to be getting old for him.
*It's hard to see my husband feel like he isn't contributing, when that's all he wants to do.
*It's hard to sleep at night.
*It's hard pay my tithing week after week and my Fast offering monthly.
*It's hard to fast and not see results.
* It's even getting hard to pray (something that has always come easy for me)
*Honestly, it's getting hard to keep my faith.
I mean really! How much time has to pass? What lesson is it that we have to learn? How many times do we have to get shot down?
Do you realize that my husband is a fabulous person? A loving father and husband? A hard worker? Hysterical beyond words? Smarter than anyone I know? and more? He also has a freaking MBA. I just felt like I had to throw that out there.
Sorry this is such a downer, but sometimes, you just have to get it out before it EXPLODES!
Software Developer 37042 position, with the Scient Comp & Imag Instit-Oper at the University of Utah
...is a position that he applied for in August. His resume/application has been forwarded to the hiring department for consideration (on Sept. 3). They say the process can take A FEW WEEKS OR LONGER! I know...freakin' crazy.
And, since we are now in the 21st century, there are no phone numbers he can call, no other information than "your application has been forwarded to the hiring dept. for consideration."
This is where all of you come in! Any of you know anybody in this particular dept at the U?
Or really anything for that matter?
It's not only the U that sends out e-mails like this with no other information! It's also the VA Hospital, Primary Childrens, ARUP pretty much all jobs. Really, it sucks.
Aaron and I and our families are not the type of people that "know" people...if you know what I mean by that. We are now in a situation where we are wishing we had a prominent uncle, father or even friend. We are wishing we had connections.
I'm hoping that maybe YOU DO.
1- A good family
2- A good ward
3- Wonderful friends
3- KNOWING THAT IT IS IMPOSSIBLE for him to be unemployed FOREVER!
