Curried Beef Short Ribs

Note: I found this was more realistically four servings.

Finishing this dish with lime zest and juice brightens its rich flavors.

Yield 6 servings (serving size: about 3 ounces ribs, 2/3 cup rice, and about 2 1/2 tablespoons sauce)

So here is the deal with the job status. I called on Friday morning because I was tired of waiting and they did encourage me to call if I hadn't heard from them. It turns out that my contact person is on vacation until mid-October. I was surprised and irritated by this news. I am not sure if their plan was to leave me hanging until that time. I left a message for someone else to call me back. They did call back at the end of the day and I got the message after going on a lunch date and running errands. They want me to come in again for another interview. I don't know what else they want to ask because I felt like we covered everything. But I think they want me to meet with someone else and maybe that person will give the final thumbs up.
I was just disappointed because I was thinking they would call and offer me the job and then the financial pressure would finally be off of us. Also Friday was Tom's birthday and I really wanted to get good news so I could get a him a nice gift. Instead he got the bargain basement version of a birthday: dinner at home, homemade cake and a well meaning card. Atleast Keegan was able to get a card too and he signed it himself. Poor little guy fell alseep before we lit the candles and I sung to Tom. I am pretty sure his wish was for me to stop singing!
So I will call back on Monday and schedule the second interview. I need to find a time that works for either my mom or Tom to miss work. I really hope this is it for this process. The next call should be them offering me the job!

PS My brother told me to focus on the positive that I am still in the running for the position. I hate it when he has a point!
