Instead of waiting the day it was due (tomorrow) and getting closer to my lucky number 13, I submitted my application to the big job today. I have snakes in my stomach! It feels good to have achieved a goal. There's a small chance I'll get this job, and a larger one I won't. But what matters is that in making my resume and cover letter, I proved to myself that I have great qualifications for someone of my age and experience, and enough references to drown a cat (not that I'd do that).
Whew! I feel like my biggest stressor is gone, and I can concentrate on the family gathering this weekend. I was going to spend tonight freaking out on my resume, but now I'll go have a beer on the porch and tidy the house a bit for visitors. Viva la Thursday!!
