On the bright side, I have another interview at a hospital in Washington (the state, not the district) scheduled for next Friday. They'll be taking care of my travel arrangements (flights, rental car, hotel room), which is great. The place where I'm going is just east of the Cascades, so they don't get alot of rain (they get 300 days of sunshine per year!), and it is a bit of a tourist-y spot from what I've been able to surmise, so it sounds like it could be a nice place to live and to visit!
Anyway, your thoughts, prayers, and crossed-fingers that I'll get a job and pass that test will be truely, deeply appreciated.
