Good Luck, Daddy!



Pat is on interview overload this week! So to wish him luck, the kids and I made this giant "Good Luck, Daddy!" sign and had a special breakfast yesterday morning to start this week of interviews off right! Hostess chocolate donuts (Pat's favorite), bacon, and eggs. I even tried to fry an egg for Pat. (Definitely not my forte, but it was edible. Scrambled eggs are so much easier.)

He had two follow up interviews with two places yesterday, and then today (actually in about 20 minutes) he has his final interview for the position in NC. Then on Thursday, he's being flown out to Alabama for another final interview with different company.

The anticipation of it all is driving me crazy!!! But I really believe the odds are in our favor. Any of these companies would be lucky to have Pat working for them.

We said a family prayer before Pat left this morning. Noah wanted to say it. He was so cute. "Tank you for Daddy's inta-vue," he said all on his own.

We really are thankful for all of these interviews and possible opportunities. It's just crazy that they've all ended up being scheduled for the same week. Whew!!!

So please keep your fingers crossed for us!

Right now, I think I need some chocolate...and to breathe. Big deep breaths.
