Our Long National Regional Local? Nighmare Is Over

No, there’s still a little more than a year before we get a new person in the Oval Office, but I am no longer unemployed!

The call I mentioned at the end of my Amazing Race post earlier today came in just before 4 pm. I can telecommute from Pittsburgh and will be making occasional trips to Mississippi to visit the “home office,” possibly as early as next week.

I hope to continue my part-time gig at Bloomin Yarns. The flexibility of telecommuting should work nicely with that goal, but we’ll have to see what happens. Bottom line is that, as usual, the Universe has a plan and you just have to wait to see what it wants.

I really sucked at being unemployed, so this is fantastic news, not to mention a gig that I can really get excited about. Busy time will be Feb-June, much as it was while I was at UCLA. Thanks everyone for your support as I struggled with the too-much-free-time thing. Who knew I’d be so bad at that? YAY!!!

Oh, and since every piece of good news must come with a grain of salt, my cable is out. Perhaps we’ll switch from Comcast to Verizon FiOS sooner than we thought? Off to seam Countess while watching TiVo. Hooray!

Yay for the job, and double yay for telecommuting! Sounds like you will have the best of both worlds--an interesting job, and plenty of flexibility. Now watch, you'll think of all the things you could be doing... if only you didn't have to work!
