I remember when my son was going through the same thing.  He put out several applications and interviewed with each.  He accepted one and two days later got a much better offer.  It was so hard for him to call the first place to tell them he changed his mind.  I forgot--what kind of job is she looking for? 

My younger daughter got a job as a lab aide making just enough to have enough. About 4 months in she got a call from a recruiter for a job as a microbiologist for a different company. I encouraged her to just check it out. Long story short she got an amazing job making more than twice the first job in industry. When she explained it to her current supervisor the lady understood and wished her well.

I just had one of those 'when you are looking for something else and find something that you knew you had and have been looking for for a lonnnngggg time' events just a few minutes ago...

I was looking for a gift box for a wedding present....did not find the right size...But did find my collection of Invisfil bobbins and threads that I have been looking for for over a year! One of my sewing buddies and I bought two each of the 6 spool collections (they were pretty pricey even when we bought them a number of years ago.) Two boxes are pastels, two boxes are jewel tones. She took all of them and ran bobbins off each each of us have half a spool of the ones we bought and a bobbin of the ones we didn't. Cannot believe where they does that happen?!! Had my Sewline glue pen and my Bohin fabric pencils in there too. I must have been doing some applique project and put all the tools in the bag, then stuffed the bag in my gift bag storage. What possessed me to put it there, we will never know.

Cannot tell you how many times I went thru all my project bags and all the nooks and crannies in my sewing room, looking for them.

I know how you feel.  While straightening up my sewing room before Cathy came, I came across the heart blocks that I made for you and thought I had sent.

I have found that the deal when finding something in a weird place is that, at that specific instant, you got interrupted while doing your normal stuff.  The stuff that you had in your hand inadvertently gets put in a different spot but you have absolutely NO idea that you actually did it .... so you have no memory of putting there.  It is truly effectively "lost" ... until you have a need to go looking in that different spot.  :-)

she is looking for occupational therapy, pediatric clinical setting.

I love it when I finally find something long lost.
