Oh What Did I Just DO???

My stomach is in knots. I feel nauseas. I've got the runs. My leg won't stop shaking. WHAT did I just DO??? Oh I have to breathe...

I updated my resume. I put it up on America's Job Bank with an updated cover letter. And I applied for a JOB. Granted, it's supposed to be an at-home job... and DH says if I spend as much time online already with all the boards I host and the friends I IM with, then I can surely have time to work from home with a data entry or processing job. He's right. And I have to make at least a good faith effort since he lost his part-time night job (laid off remember? I blogged it). If I could get this position, even at the PT end and lower pay scale, I could still pull in $300 a week. If I could get FT it would be closer to $500 a week. There'd be NO financial worries at all AND I'd be at home.

But this scares the CRAP out of me. I don't even know why. It's not like I'd have to put on a suit that doesn't fit well every day. Hell, I wouldn't even have to brush my hair to "go to work." I wouldn't even have to find a babysitter. I know I'd be good at it, I did claims corrections and was a unit assistant for a bunch of nurses for a couple years through Aetna. I loved it, mainly because I never had to be on the phone with clients and set my own work pace. It was fun and I got a lot of work done. I love computers, maybe that's why. But I'm still scared to DEATH and VERY nervous. Hence the stomach issues all of a sudden. It's been 3 1/2 years since I was employed by anyone. And I don't count babysitting several times every week for my best friend. She brings her 2 kids over and I help her and her DH out, and she pays me. But it's like the kids are having a play date. And it's fun, not work.

Someone tell me this is the right thing to do. I already told Manny, and he's excited about it. We just hope it's legit and that they like me. What do I do if I have to do a live interview face-to-face though??? I don't have anything nice to wear that fits me right now. Not for an interview, anyway. Oh what if they call me? What if I get this?

This is a fantastic opprotunity! Your so lucky. Your DH is right on the money. If you spend as much time online, then you definately have time to do some data entry....I hope you get this job. . shoot. Who's the employer? Can I apply? :)

Your DH is right on the money. And you should be extatic about the opprotunity to work from home! I'm sure the extra money will help out tons! Hopefully you get the job!

oh I sure hope it works out! I'm sure with your references and work history they won't be in a hurry to do a "face to face" interview. They can probably do a phone! I'm crossing my fingers for ya
