No time for a formal post right this second, but I wanted to give you a quick update on what I've been up to the last week or so.
First of all, I still haven't heard if I've been selected for the job yet or not. According to some other people I know who work for this organization, they apparently have a long hiring decision process and it can take several weeks until they notify the candidates. So until I hear either yay or neigh, I'm just going to be patient.
I the meantime, we just spent a glorious week in CO celebrating a long-planned and long overdue vacation - AND our 20th wedding anniversary. We originally weren't even going to go if I didn't get this job because we knew it was going to be expensive and I didn't want to have to deal with a large vacation bill if I was going to be unemployed. But then at the very last second we said "what the hell, let's do it!" and last week we rented a big ol' minivan and loaded up the kids and headed out west for one of the best vacations I've ever had. We chose Colorado because that's where Charli and I spent our honeymoon 20 years ago and we've been dying to go back ever since. Oh, and trust me, you'll be hearing all about it next week.
But right now everything is good and I just need to sleep after driving non-stop for 2 days.
And thank you again for checking on me. It was really sweet to come home to all the emails and comments. You guys are the best. :-)
