When it rains it pours...

So last Friday morning I went in for the "Observation Period" at [large shipping company] and filled out an application, though they didn't have any openings at that exact moment. Friday afternoon I got a phone call from [very extremely large mine in Wyoming] in regards to an application I did earlier in the week, asking to schedule an phone call quasi-interview on Monday, today. So that's going to happen this afternoon. Again, I don't know whether to be nervous or excited--this will be the first real job interview I've had since I graduated. It sounds like a good job, and I would love to live in Wyoming, but I'd kinda hate to leave my mom all alone here with all this property/garden/chickens. I really think that there's something to be said of the traditional family model with multiple generations living under the same roof. But maybe I'm overthinking it.

But other than that, I just have to ask, how can you go so long without anything and then get two hits in one day?

A friend of mine was tremendously, horrifically ugly until he got married and then all of a sudden he was handsome. At least that is how he phrased it. Women hit on him constantly after he got married. At least that is what he said.

Not for me, though. Apparently only one woman has just the right brain damage to be attracted to me.

Traditional family is really important, but so is carving out your own life.

In all honesty, I have never faced a choice in life that tough.

Having just carried my grandfather to his grave would probably skew any advise I would even be halfway qualified to throw your way. Other than one thing: Sit down with your mother and talk to her.

Good luck to you and your mother.
