Tue May 28, 2013, 03:01 PM

I have a job interview tomorrow.

Ohmigosh, I am so nervous. I've been at my current job for more than 20 years, and my last interview was probably 15 years ago.

It's not even in my field; it's in the mortgage industry, so there would definitely be a learning curve.

The one thing that does give me some comfort is that my friend referred me for the job and she works in upper management.

Excited and scared!!

9. Quick update

I think it went well. In my head, I pretended I was a consultant, not a prospective employee, so that helped. I interviewed with a manager and an VP. I found out afterward that the manager liked me, but didn't think I had enough experience managing teams. Unfortunately, that was not brought up during the interview, so I didn't address it. I don't know yet what the VP thought. Once I find out, I'll write a thank you and address the management concern.

Went house-hunting, but didn't find anything.

Yoohoo...dream house? Where are you?

10. The house will find you when you're ready for it.

That was my experience, anyway. Several years back I took a part time job (nights/weekends) doing clerical stuff at a real estate office, mostly for the extra money. But I also developed good relationships with a couple agents and the mortgage officer. Turns out, in addition to helping me get my financial house in order, he & one of the agents was also flipping houses on the side & had one less than a mile from where I lived at the time ... on a quiet little street I knew well. It never jumped out at me because it's an innocuous tiny-looking little red-brick Brady Bunch house with a carport instead of garage & a driveway that seems a mile long. After I worked at the p/t gig for a few months, he commented in passing that the house was about ready to go on the market and I replied half-jokingly that, how coincidental, my apartment lease was up at the end of the next month.

He said they had small things to finish on the house but he was getting restless with the carrying cost of it & would I be interested in renting it & maybe helping them with yardwork/paint etc for a discount?

I went to take a closer look at it - again from the outside it isn't much - but when I looked in the living room window & saw the evening sun bouncing off those hardwood floors, saw the brand new kitchen, fenced yard for my doggies to chase critters to their hearts' content and smelled the perennials that were growing along the side of the house, I was smitten.

I moved in 3 weeks later and less than 3 weeks after that, he called me at my other job and said 'Guess what? I've got you approved for an FHA loan. Wanna buy a house?'

There are days - especially in bad weather when all I can see are potential repair bills - when I hate it .... but in my heart I know that this house found me & I was destined to be its caretaker.

11. I just made an offer on one

I love it! I hope it comes through. It's in a really wonderful area and in almost perfect condition, so I would bet I'm not the only offer.

Fingers crossed!

13. I hope so

It's been two days and the buyer won't give me an answer to my offer.

I think they are holding out for a cash buyer.

14. Hmmm .... there is supposed to be a time deadline on replying to offers/counters etc.

What has your agent said?

15. He finally replied...today

He's been very short with us and treating us like we're second-class citizens, so I am not happy.

He wants to know how much more I'm willing to spend because he has many offers.

I told my agent to reply 15 minutes before the closing time with no change in my offer. After all, he said he had many, but he never said he had a "better" one.
