Happy Job News

December 30th, 2011 at 07:25 pm

We have got the final word that DH will indeed have a new contract in January. They wanted him on 3 January--about 20 feet away from his current desk, but with the year we've had, he's going to wait until 9 January to start. And it looks like rather than starting in the new department, he'll be hanging around the old one part of the time as his "replacement" is out on extended sick leave.

I wish I could say we did an immediate happy dance, but I think we were a bit shaken and couldn't quite come to grips with it. That and the cold that has been plaguing us all has made this news still very very very good, but I think we're cautious and wary still.

I'll try a year-end wrap-up tomorrow,with some updated goals for 2012.

In the meantime, I can't believe I'm saying this--but I wish it would snow. This is drearier than British winter. Time for another cookie before the resolutions set in!
