Crossing my fingers.........

I am nervous this morning. I awoke before five and can't get back to sleep.
This morning I have a job interview. While I know I could do this job perfectly, I am afraid that I won't get it because I get so nervous about the interview. I have tried to prepare myself but this company can afford to be very choosey. The salary would be more than I have previously earned. It's a good salary but just as important to me are the benefits. Because of poor benefits over the past few years my out of pocket expenses have been very high. I get prescriptions filled where insurance pays a few dollars and my portion is $50.00. When you are getting half a dozen prescriptions a month it adds up quickly. Many months my salary from my part time job goes entirely for that month's medical expenses. I really cannot afford to be working part time. With part time I have no paid sick days, no paid vacation days and no paid holidays off. Many larger companies do give part time employees those things but I work for a small company. IF I get this new job I will get 8 paid holidays and fourteen sick/vacation/personal days off as well.
I haven't been blogging a lot lately....actually I haven't been online a lot lately. I have been reading newspapers, searching online and calling a job service trying to find a job that will meet my needs. Now that I am so close, I feel very stressed. I find it difficult to go meet a stranger and sell myself in a fifteen minute interview. Still, I have to just DO IT. My personality has all the qualifications they are looking for. If I get the job I will post about it. I will be excited and grateful. If I don't get the job, I don't know how I am going to handle the dissapointment.
Keep your fingers crossed.

The fingers are crossed, and I'll keep you in my prayers. Benefits make a world of difference.
