So I told myself I wasn't going to tell anyone until it was for sure but I have to tell at least someone. So on Sunday I had a work interview. It was a bit sudden and not even a job I applied to. A family reached out to me about a Nanny position. I have to admit I was super excited to be having an interview as it always feels like you will never even get to that step. On the other hand I was also really really really nervous! So I went to this interview and I had a good feeling about it the whole time. I mean I am not going to say I wasn't nervous because I was. But I thought that it went really well. As J. walked me to my car she told me she was sorry that I hadn't met her daughter who was napping the duration of the interview so I was only able to meet their baby boy. She asked if I would like to come back on Tuesday and meet her daughter maybe make a little work interview out of it and I said sure. Needless to say I had a little bit of a confidence boost. I like to think that if they hadn't liked me I would not have been invited back.
Later on that evening I received a text from J. asking if I would like to make Tuesday 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. and Thursday 8 a.m. - 6 p.m. both working interview days and they would be paid. Again a major confidence boost reassuring me that they did in fact like me or else the simple interview would have been the end of it. So I went to my working interview today. My nerves were going nuts. I mean anyone who has taken care of someone else's children knows that it is a very awkward process the first few times. The kids will test you to see what they can get away with. You want to make sure they know they need to listen without over stepping as a sitter. Figuring out where everything is in the house. The list goes on. So I was nervous to say the least but excited. J. was there the whole time though she was off doing her own thing. The day went really well but of course the nervousness never left since I was completely aware that this is an interview and well my behavior with the children and how I handle them is all being monitored. Not say its a bad thing but it is nerve wracking.
So it was the end of the day and I was getting ready to leave and J. and I were talking about how the day went. She asked if I had anything going on this Saturday and I told her I had promised the family that I had been working for that I would help them out. Which she then remembered that I had mentioned it in my interview so she asked if I had anything going on Sunday. Since I didn't I will now be working on Sunday and she said we can sit down and get the schedule figured out that way I would know what days they will need me! Trying to play it cool though I asked "So... does that mean I got the job?" To which her response was "Well yeah pretty much. I mean I have to talk to C. of course but you know the man usually just goes with what you suggest anyways."
I am trying not to get overly excited because of course they will make there official decision come Sunday. But I can't help it. I mean.... she basically said I have the job. Anyways I had to get it out before I exploded. So send all the good vibes that you can that Thursday and Sunday go well!
That is all that is going on right now. I am still trying to figure out what I will write come Friday for my PBP post. I hope that all of you are doing great. I am still working on getting my sleep schedule figured out. I am definitely going to look into getting some Melatonin as suggested by Pearl from The Witch Under The Stairs. I feel much more comfortable with taking that then taking a Benadryl when I just can't handle it anymore.
Have a good night everyone!
