Sometimes there's all this mystery on blogs about special, in-the-works projects: "I have something really awesome going on, but I can't tell you about it. Sorry!" That's not irritating at all, is it? I didn't think so.
Fortunately, I won't keep you in suspense. I got a job.
Sorry, that wasn't quite right. I got a job!!!
I won't go into great detail, obviously, but it's in a suburb of Boston, overseeing the libraries at two elementary schools in a lovely little district. The schools are gorgeous, and I've been very impressed with the principal, the current librarian, and the teachers I've been introduced to.
I am absolutely thrilled, and I can hardly wait until August to start.
I am so deeply relieved about how this has fallen into place. It means we know what general area of Boston to live in (if I hadn't had a job, we could have moved to a suburb on one side of Boston and I could have gotten a job 15 miles outside of Boston in the other direction, and then I'd be dealing with a really long commute). It means I can spend my summer working on lesson plans and programming for the year, instead of applying for jobs, interviewing, and writing cover letter after cover letter.
But mostly, I can't stop thinking that, come Fall, Bart and I will be living in our dream city, both with our dream jobs. Life is sometimes just too good to take in.
