Good news on all fronts

Things are looking up on both the health and job fronts.

My appointment today went fine - I should have the biopsy results in a week or two and my doctor didn't see anything she was majorly concerned about.

Aaron's interview went far better than he expected and he thinks there is a real possibility that the job would be one he would happily take and keep for a while. The salary is decent, the teaching load is very light, there is money for research and the benefits are good. So the job he was less than excited about may be the one that would allow us to stay here (which would be good as I actually have some friends here and like the community) and finally settle in a buy a house - dare I dream? I am not going to get too hyped up until there is an offer and aaron has a day or two to think about it, but it is nice to finally have something that looks promising after a long run of disappointments.

Debi asked what we were going to spend our garage sale money on...I think we are going to go into Kansas City and have a night on the town for our anniversary. It should probably just go toward our new computer, but I think we may go crazy and actually have some fun with it instead!

Oh my gosh! Kara...that's huge news! I had no idea you all were considering making this job a permanent gig! Does that mean it is a tenure-track position? Wow! I'm so excited for you all! I hope they offer it to Aaron...and it really is something that will make him happy! (Though of course, personally I'm really bummed that you'll still be sooooo far away!) Boy, I'll bet Aaron's parents would be mighty happy if you all stayed put, huh? Gosh, this just caught me totally off-guard...I'm so happy for you all!
And I'm even more happy that your doc thinks everything is okay! Please, please, please let me know when you know anything for sure, okay?
And go enjoy a huge anniversary celebration...you two definitely deserve it!

Yes! Go crazy and have some fun with it! Do something special for y'all! :o)

So glad the doc didn't see anything to be worried about! Whew! I go back in 5 weeks for my millionth one and the final verdict on what he's gonna do. Blah!

Hope y'all have a good day!

Very glad to hear the Dr. isn't too concerned! That's always good news!

Hope you had a fabulous anniversary celebration!
