Job Interview


I woke up super early this morning to go to a working job interview. I even set out my scrubs the night before! I was very excited about going. I studied my butt off last night, reviewing everything we had gone over in my dental assisting class. I was feeling pretty good about myself. I didn't struggle getting out of bed this morning! I showered and even ate breakfast!

I show up at the office, and chatted with the girls that work there, waiting for the dentist to come in for the day. The girls showed me around and pointed things out for me. One of them even let me borrow her lab coat! As I was standing in the operatory, helping the assistant with the first patient of the day, I began to have hot flashes. I thought it was because it was pretty warm in the building. Nope. I had to run to the rest room clear down the hallway to puke up my breakfast!

I felt a little better, so I went back to the patients room. Helped out for about five more minutes, then started to sweat pretty bad. Not a good sign right after I had just thrown up. So I ran back to the rest room and threw up again! I rinsed out my mouth (luckily the dentist has mouthwash:) ) and went back to the room again. They asked if everything was ok. And of course I said yes. I was at a work interview! For a job I really really want!!! How could this happen at such an important time?

Unfortunately, it happened again, about five minutes later. They told me to go home. I made sure to set up another interview so they knew I really wanted this job. Now, I am stuck waiting a few more days of not knowing what is going to happen to this job. AND I get stuck washing the lab coat I borrowed from Ruth. How embarrassing and frustrating. So, I am going to go rest some more (after the 5 hour nap I just took...) so I can get feeling better. I have to train a new girl at red robin this week, while stressing out, I mean wondering, about this dental assisting job. But I still have hope that they will hire me!

You are so pregnant!

I was going to say... "Hmm, sounds like your prego!" But everyone beat me to it. Gosh. I hope you are prego, though, we could use a nephew! If not, then get feeling better. Good luck with finding a job.

By-the-way. I love the song, Human by the Killers! If you like that song, I might be able to suggest a few more songs that you might like.

I love that song, Anna! Scott got me the new Killers cd for Christmas! What else you got?

Oh, and for everyone who thought I might be pregnant. That's a negative. Scott was sick too. And we just had the flu...along with a fever and runny nose, and everything else that comes along with the flu:) Some day though, in a year or two...

Lame! Sorry that your job interview didn't go as planned! I hope it works out for you! Keep us posted. And too bad about the pregnancy thing... Eric and I thought it would be pretty cool to have a little Emily running around :)
