time to catch a break...

Alright it's been a minute since I last updated...well, many minutes but you get the idea. In case you were wondering, no updates=no job offers. Yet. And I'm starting to think ever. Now, if you seem to recall, the meeting at the nanny agency went "wonderfully"...and I was supposed to be so easy to place that I would have a family within a week, two tops. Uhhh....do you see me with a family yet? Now...I don't doubt that this nanny agency is "for real"...but I'm starting to have my doubts about how many families they're actually working with...I dunno. It's like I want them to be for real because I would LOVE to find a family through them but at the same time if they are for real, why is it taking so long? Sometimes when I call and leave messages asking that they return my call, they don't...then when I call back again and ask if they got my message, April (the office manager) goes "oh yeah, you checking in?" What I want to say is "No...generally the words 'Please call me back when you get this' would imply that I would like a phone call back." Or is that too much to ask for?
Another example: Yesterday I called saying I needed to find something soon (i.e. within the next couple weeks). April goes "oh yeah! I totally understand!" and proceeds to give me some family names. I get the name of a family--both parents are doctors, they have a 4 month old--I get a phone call back from the mom today, she sounds excited, she wants to talk/meet. So I'm like awesome! Maybe something will work out...I get ahold of her after work and she says "So...the agency told you that we have a 4 month old?" "yes they did." "And they told you that we need someone to start July 1st?" "Hmm..must have left that part out." Apparantly "relatively soon" means 2 1/2 months away to April...do I have the right to be a little annoyed? Or am I just blowing things out of proportion? Ugh, I'm just starting to get frustrated...I thought I would have a family by now and at this point, I don't even have a good lead. Maybe send some good thoughts my way that SOMETHING comes around within the next week or so...I could really use some help here!

FYI...

..last time I was talking about you finding a family (totally implying nannying), Seth thought I meant I hoped you'd find a husband and baby. You should clarify when you say "family"...

Or maybe YOU should clarify when you say family! You're the one that screwed him up!
