What is on my mind? It is 6:15 p.m. and James still hasn't picked me up from work. It is terribly windy outside. He had an interview up near Charlotte at 2:00 but should have been finished with that a long time ago. So, do I worry because he isn't here yet, or do I get mad or frustrated because he could be sitting at home asleep in his chair? He wasn't expecting me to be ready until 5:00, but that was over an hour ago. I want to go home!!! And I want my sweetie to be ok.

What's on the mind of the Big Dog?

Interview tomorrow. Let me provide a brief history of me.

I went to school for law enforcement. Have a BS in law enforcement. Applied to literally hundreds of departments in MN, to no avail. So, after a year or so, I decided it was time for a contingency plan. But what do I like doing, and what am I good at? The only real answer to that is cooking.

So, tomorrow I have an interview at an assisted living for seniors facility for a cook position. First time I've aggressively pursued alternative employment to law enforcement.

However, I just received a letter from a department saying I am invited for oral interviews. It seems like whenever I head in a different direction from LE, something draws me back. That said, last time I followed the LE part, and it fell through.

So, my mind is somewhat jumbled as to the interview and pursuit of culinary arts career versus continually pursuing law enforcement. I'm certainly going to the interview, at least to see what there is to see.

Nice thing about the cook job is it is literally 2, maybe 3 miles away from home! I could walk there if I wanted to!

Thanks pds and texasgirl. I didn't have any way to call him. He was late because of the interview. I guess it went well, but we don't quite trust the place. They seemed a little shady to us, and he would have to pay a few hundred for some training. He would have to get a license to sell insurance. Plus they said that he should put hundreds of signs up all over the place (on other people's property) and people would call based on those signs. Very weird, I think.

Good luck, and I hope you make the right decisions. It's basically finding the leads. Sales is a tough business...I couldn't do it. Again, good luck and best wishes!!!
