So after this week we have decided Jobs are very frustrating. Ty has had a rough start with his new job and it worries us both since it is our income for the summer and we have bills to pay. The hard thing about his job is it is so unstable. He is out there working ten hours a day so hard. He is the hardest worker I know but it all depends on the people and they aren't willing to buy right now so that equals zero money for us. We are hoping that this will pick up soon because it just seems like all the single people are selling and the married guy who has all the bills to pay isn't. I feel so bad for Ty because he is working so hard and when he comes home he is so frustrated. I get frustrated too because everyone keeps telling us that we will do fine but I like to feel secure and stable and we for sure aren't feeling that. Wish Ty luck. I love him so much and I am so grateful for his hard work. I am so proud of him I just hate that he has to be disapointed every night.

Our other problem is I don't even have a job. I have sent out a ton of resumes and have filled out a lot of applications. I had an interview with target and said that I did good and that they would call me the next day to take the drug test because the HR lady wasn't there but that was on Tuesday and I still haven't gotten the call. I was excited when I saw that Buckle was hiring a full time job just for the summer. I thought it would be perfect. So I filled out their super long application and took the dumb test they make you take and I got an email today saying that I hadn't been selected for the position. I have no idea why not. They never even met me, or saw me because their application was online. I have had work experience, schooling and references I just wish I knew why. Thats why I don't like online applications and them not even doing an interview. How to they know if I wouldn't do the job well if they haven't even met me? Wooo sorry about the venting I just wish I understood. So I have an interview tomorrow for data entry which I have done before so I am hoping and literally praying that I get this job because I am so tired of getting shot down when Ty and I have no money and bills due soon. It is a scary and emotional time thats for sure. I feel like a failure because I can't even get a job. I am 21 educated and can't even get a dumb job.

Wish us luck.


  1. Oh sound too much like me. When did we become such stress balls..we must have done it together. Something my mom always tells me is "this to will pass." Sometimes it makes me feel better to know that we will somehow, someway get through things even if it wasn't the way we had imagined it to be. So cheer up and keep working hard, it will pay off!

  2. Hi guys..sorry about not getting back to you sooner..they kept me busy out there. Whit, all you need to do is apply under the freight position (which I think you will like better than sales), you will just have to do it under a diff email address and you do not have to take another assessment questionaire. Let me know if you have any questions.

  3. Whitty: I sure do miss you and I feel your pain. Last summer I applied and applied and Abby got like two jobs before I did and I cried for like a week straight.. Some people are just slow hirers keep up the faith and good work. Tell Ty we feel his pain and we wish you both luck. We miss you and hope this is successful for you. let us know if there is anything we can do for you!
