So I had my big job interview this morning and have no idea how it went. I don't think I'll get the job I originally applied for simply because I don't have the experience. I said that from the beginning, but all my MIL cares about is $$$$. I'm a little tired of hearing about how my job isn't good enough and my husband won't listen to me so I tried for this job.

I did find a job very similar to my current job that is supposed to pay better. They want me to come in and talk, so there are other possibilities. Of course this one would mean my husband would still have a commute, but that might not matter if he really can do the work at home deal.

All I can do is see what I hear from these people. I think they'll offer me a job, just a more entry level one with about the same pay as I get now and worse hours. But there is room for growth and I think I could be happy there. My husband just doesn't want me working weekends.

This time around with the weight loss competition at work I am finding it much easier to eat the fruits and veggies and it is giving me a kick in the pants to get moving again. I am determined to get as many points possible each week and do it honestly.

Time to relax and work on Easter ducks for my kids.

  I can only say money isn't everything. My dad always pushed us to move up and make more money. After I nearly had a nervous breakdown after a job went horribly wrong, he changed his tune. I finally got him to understand that happiness at your job is much more important. Don't settle for I can adjust and be okay. Do something that will truly make you happy and fulfilled. You'll live longer and be happier.

    I see what your MIL wants, what your husband wants, what the job might/might not want, and what you could end up with, but I'm not seeing you saying what YOU WANT. Sometimes it's hard for us to believe that what we want for our lives is far more important than what others want for us, but it's true. You need to decide what you want most out of your life, what you want out of a job, and what you want out of your relationships. When you've decided then you need to be willing to make your wants known and put them into action.

You deserve great things. You deserve to be happy. You deserve to have a job you love, not a job that others think you should have.
