news I just had to share somewhere! I wasn't ready for this new format, though. It looks like we should all be able to catch on eventually!

Anyway, my DH has been in SLC this week interviewing. He was really excited about one company in particular, but the interview didn't go too well yesterday. DH said they didn'g "click." He was pretty discouraged because he thought that company was the reason he was down there! Boy, were we wrong!

DH had 2 more interviews today, and he really wasn't that excited about them. He figured he'd just go thru the motions and leave to come home. Well, he had an interview at 1pm, which was ok, but then he had another interview at 3pm. He arrived at 2:30 and was called in right then. He ended up being interviewed from 2:30 to 6:30!!!!! To sum it up, the employer was really impressed with my DH, and even though they aren't technically hiring right now, he said he is going to do whatever it takes to get DH hired on! He told my DH a few times throughout the interview that he wasn't impressed with his GPA, and normally wouldn't consider an applicant with a GPA under 3.4, but looking over his resume and that he has music background, and then his soon-to-be engineering degree, he felt like DH was the one! DH would actually be working as an accoustical engineer, which requires electrical background, as well as music (DH will graduate witha minor in music). He asked DH how he felt about moving there, and he told him that for the last month we have both been feeling really good about SLC, that we were excited and really felt like it was home, so something had better work out! After DH relayed all of that the employer said, "I just got the chills all over." Yaaaahooooo!!! Although there hasn't been an official job offer (the guy said he would have hired DH on the spot if he could have) we feek so good about this! The employer told DH to go home and pray like crazy, and that he would do the same. He has to talk to his marketing director (or whatever the title is) to find out if they can make a place for DH, and he was going to do all he could to create a position! He even brought in the senior engineer to meet my DH. He said, "I want you to meet this guy. He's gonna be working under you and I'm really excited about him." We are soo excited!

Thanks to any of you that sent any prayers up on our behalf, or even if you thought about us. My DH said he has never felt this good about any job he's ever had in his life! We jsut can't believe it! Anyway, it's almost 1am here. I've got to get to bed. Hope everyone is around on the new board soon! Thanks to all!

Very excited SarahAnne!

I will for sure keep you in mind in prayers! That is so exciteing for you. We hope to move there within the year so maybe we could be neighbors ha ha ha. We are looking in the Spanish Fork area. We loved it when we were there for the week. I have liked Utah for a long time but that was DH first time there and he fell in love with it! There is job openings in Draper for the prison so that is a good thing but he would be taking a cut in pay to move so we are hurrying up and paying off some bills so we can get there sooner. I can work in an office or something answering phones. So I will be thinking for you!~!!

Take care and hopefully many moving boxes later...

I'll be sure to keep your dh in my prayers that he will get that job. It sounds like a perfect match for him. Keep us posted.
