Karma's When I Feel Like It Blog

It was not to be

Filed under: Uncategorized — Karma @ 4:22 pm

I got the news I was waiting for today, and I am disappointed.  I interviewed for a new position within the place where I already work and another candidate, from outside, was chosen.  I’m not comfortable discussing further here, but if any of my regular readers and commenters are interested in more information, feel free to email me.   I am sad, but will be okay.  This lovely bouquet of flowers from dear hubby awaited me upon my arrival home from work today.


  1. Aww, I’m so sorry you didn’t get the position, Karen. Maybe it wasn’t meant to be, because there’s something even better waiting in the wings for you.
    How sweet of hubby to buy you flowers. Such a beautiful bouquet, too!

  2. Awww… I’m sorry, Karma. 😦

    But having a husband thoughtful enough to give you such beautiful flowers looks like it will help ease the disappointment at least a little. 🙂

  3. So sorry Karen, I know from recent experience how much it can affect you when you’ve interviewed for a position, and to feel you’re an ideal candidate… only to be unsuccessful… Hopefully a better opportunity is just around the corner…

  5. Oh no, Karen. I so hoped you would get it! Cindy Lou was just asking over on my blog, and I was keeping my fingers crossed. Darn, darn, darn! They don’t know what a wonderful person they are missing out on! Hope you feel this long-distance hug… The flowers are beautiful.

  7. I’m sorry to hear about this, Karma! But remember, the disappointment of losing this position may only lead to a better opportunity that would have been missed if you had taken this position. Hang in there! Good luck. Very nice flowers.

  8. Aw, so sorry Karen. I agree with Michaela that perhaps something even better is in the works for you! How sweet of hubby to get you flowers. He’s a keeper! 🙂
