Emotional Roller Coaster

I'm crazy. That's all there is to it.

So yesterday I knew that the fact that I didn't hear from the church meant that I didn't get the position, today I talked to Jamie who said that Janet (the other secretary there) asked Brother Brown (one of the hiring people) and he said that they had made a decision, but they hadn't told anybody what it was yet. Not even the person who got it. They still had to call that person's bishop to make sure they were worthy and figure out the payscale and all of that. So, they haven't told the person who didn't get it, and they haven't told the person who did get it, and they haven't told Jamie and Janet. Sigh. So I'm still in the dark.

Part of me got all excited to hear that, because it means that I am still in the running. So, it may take a couple of days for all of that to happen, and that means I probably won't hear ANYTHING either way until Friday. Then it will be 2 weeks before they want the new person to start. Yikes.

I guess things just take a while sometimes in the church. It seems like everything is a little slower paced, calmer, more reasonable. No rushed decisions, they just calmly consider all options and make a decision when they are ready to. They ponder it and pray about it and think about what feels right. It's such a big difference from how we do things here. We get an add in the paper, review a resume as soon as we get it, call for a phone interview the next day, an in person interview the day after that, and make a decision about them in the next 24 hours so we can hope that they'll start by the end of the week. I kindof like the slower pace, but it's hard to adjust to. I guess that's just the way of things sometimes. it makes more sense, that's for sure.

So, now I just need to work on calming down, taking it one day at a time, and being patient until I hear from them. Back to the drawing board.

  1. Decisions like that ARE made slower around here. On one hand it makes you feel good knowing they are really taking the time to consider you and pray about it and make the right decision. But on the other hand...AHHHHHHHHHHHH Hurry up already!!!!! You're killing me here!!! lol, at least that's how I feel :)
