    Oh, I don't necessarily think you are wrong... just that we lucked out this time. I remember when my own kids would spend the weekend with my parents, it always took me a day or two to get them to settle down.

    Re: Share your good news

    I've been working at the same place for almost 7 years. They announced earlier this year that our office is moving to a community about 45 minutes away, and confirmed a couple of weeks ago that we would have a January move date. Not interested in a commute, I love be able to go home for lunches or do banking or whatever so I have been keeping my eye out for jobs that fit my skillset, which is hard to do in the community I live in. One caught my eye in August, so I redid my resume, sent it in and heard nothing. I had given up, then last week, I get an email asking if I can do a phone interview... so I take my car and park it on a dead end road and take the call... after I was done, I spent all weekend kicking myself for the things I should have said. It has been so long since I've had an interview and am terrible at selling myself, so I was sure I wouldn't get a call back. Well what do ya know. I come home today to a voicemail. They want to do a second interview! I am so excited, even if this is as far as it goes, I am just thrilled that I apparently said something right the first time!

    Good Luck, Hyper! Is the second interview an "in person" interview? Maybe you should jot down some of your strengths and role play with a close friend to help you learn how to better "sell yourself". I hope you get the job if it sounds like one you would enjoy!
