No Joy in Mudville

The Mighty Teble has struck out.

I didn't get the third grade teaching job that I interviewed for at the boys' school.
My friend, who has more experience than I do, didn't get it either. I'm still in shock. And alternating between confused, sad, mad, hurt, embarrassed, angry, frustrated, and seriously pissed off.

What's worse is, I can't drown my sorrows in alcohol or comfort food because I'm on this stupid life-affirming diet. So what did I do with all those swirling emotions?

Walked the dog for a mile. Walked/ran for an hour, 3.17 miles, on the treadmill and burned 378 calories. Then I watched Dancing with the Stars with Ten.

Then I ate five ginger snaps.

Hey, nobody's perfect.

I don't blame you. Idiots!

I still think there is something perfect for you out there (which I know doesn't help RIGHT NOW.)

Teble, I am so sad and very surprised that you didn't end up w/ that job. I know that God has BIG plans for you though! You are going to land where you are soppose to be. I wish so bad you would just stay @ CLC but I know that is NOT going to happen :( I am wishing you the VERY best with your job search.
