BIG NEWS Part V

To catch up on my BIG NEWS click here.

Then I went to pray. And I prayed so so so hard. I prayed that Heavenly Father would open the hearts and minds of the interviewers so they would know that Seiuli was telling the truth and was the man they were suppose to hire. And right then and there I felt an overwhelming calm feeling. A calm feeling I had heard about from others, but had never felt in such a way myself. I knew he would be interviewed. They would listen to Seiuli. How he did in the interview would change our lives forever- one way or another.

Sei called the man, we'll call him "Mr. T", who had been conducting all the background checks. He told Mr. T that he had no idea why he had failed that portion of the test. He had been completely honest. Mr. T told him that he would send on the results to the chief and to just plan to meet as scheduled unless he called and told him otherwise. Sei thanked him, but he told me that Mr. T's attitude towards him seemed different than it had just that morning when he met with him.

So, now it was more waiting. Sei's interview wasn't scheduled for almost another 3 hours. I talked to him a lot during that time and just prayed that another call never beeped in. About 30 minutes before his interview was the last time I talked to him. My phone didn't ring again and I knew he had been able to attend the interview. But it was scheduled at 1 pm and 2 hours past that time I was getting a little worried because I hadn't heard back. Then I heard my phone beep. It was a text from Sei. "They asked me why I didn't dress up." HOLY FREAKIN' CRAP!! In all our hurrying around getting ready for his trip- booking a rental car, plane tickets, getting copies of transcripts, driving records, finding his divorce decree, our marriage license, etc... we had TOTALLY forgot to pack a suit. It never even entered our minds. I know- we are such dorks!! He had taken clothes appropriate for a polygraph, peeing in a cup (Is there a dress code for that?) and a psychological test, but the whole interview part had just totally slipped our minds. He had on a button up shirt and nice jeans. Losers. When I got that text that moment was the 1st time I really felt nervous. I kept telling myself to remember the calm feeling I had, it would be ok. But in my head I was stressin' it. Big time.

Should I leave y'all hangin' again???

No? Ok. I'll tell y'all just a little more. I'm just having so much fun!!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Another half hour passed. *Finally* my phone rang and I answered. It was Sei. "Did you get my text?" he asked, kinda somber sounding. "Yeah. I'm sorry Babe. I totally meant to tell you to take your Dockers. I'm sorry!! " Sei said, "Oh, yeah. No, did you get my other text?" "Wait, hold on." I had to figure out how to check messages while on a call and do it with shaking fingers.

And there it was- the best text EV.ER.
