This one hurts. And I knew that if it didn't work out, that it was going to be especially painful...

After weeks of nothing on the job front, Rob had an interview last week. For a position in New Jersey--not just in the state, but in the area where he grew up, where we had moved from four years ago. And the interview went really well. There was talk of salaries, mention of possible relocation packages.

And I knew not to get ahead of myself, not to count my chickens, etc. Yet a quick glance at realtor.com revealed a house for sale (that looked good!) not a half-mile from his sisters. We are going over to NJ tomorrow, and in my mind, it was going to be a triumphant return. We'd make the big announcement, get his realtor sister looking into houses, spread the news...

And today the call came. They filled the position internally.

And just like I knew it would, this one really hurts.

I'm so sorry. I've been there with the cart before the horse. Good luck though, I just wanted to say I'm sorry.

Truly, Julia
