Scared

One of my lines finally got a nibble.

The HR person called and said that the hiring manager asked her to specifically look up my applciation. I thought the job had gone away, but no. I might be a shoe in. I might be able to snag it before it is advertised - I might have the inside track. I might just get into a position to be mentored for 2 years before taking the No. 1 spot.

I might have to move my family.

I'm scared. It's a big deal to move my family for a job. I have always fantasized about giving my kids the stability I never had, but I also have no real glue here. Friends, yes. Family, no. No "real" glue.

I'm planning to pursue it. My husband is supportive and encouraging.

A chance to live, work and volunteer all in one community. My dream.

Yay! Go for it. I know the pressure must be pretty big when you gotta move the whole family, but it could be a really good thing for everyone. Opportunities like this don't just happen by accident. Good luck and keep us posted on how things go.
