Out for a walk with E and the dog, musing about what life will be like if I actually ever receive an offer from State. While waiting for a walk sign at an intersection, I snuck a peak at the iPhone and found an amazing message. No flashing lights or capital letters. Just a simple text email with the subject line reading “October Invitation” and instructions to respond in the next 4 days if I’m ready to jump in to the October A-100 class. I have to update my resume to reflect my too-many-years of experience, find my undergrad and law school transcripts, and send it all to the Registrar’s office so they can compute my starting salary, but I’ll be responding positively today.
After over a year in process, we are very much in shock that this is all really happening. More details when the shock wears off a little.
