Didn't show for first two days of work and wonder if I still have a shot at working there?

I'm a young stay home mom, and have been looking for a job that met my requirements for wage and hours for months. My husband is leaving for basic training in the Army in two weeks and I'd really like to have a job for the extra money and to have something to do while he's gone.

My husband is leaving for basic training in the Army in two weeks and I'd really like to have a job for the extra money and to have something to do while he's gone. I got a job as a nursing home activities assistant, and was very excited about it. The morning I was supposed to start the job, I woke up and had a voicemail from another employer who wanted an interview with me for a higher paying job. I went for the interview instead of going to my first day of work, and unfortunately did not end up getting hired at the job I interviewed for. Now I am very upset and wish I had just gone to my first day of work at the first job. I was supposed to start on Monday and was wondering if maybe I should call tomorrow morning (Wednesday) to explain what happened, apologize and see if they would still let me begin working there.

Please no negativity, I understand what I did was not the smartest thing which is why I am seeking help.
