..for my husband?

We actually got an offer last night. It's just really far away.
We are going to take said offer as it's a very good opportunity, but it will require a cross country move at some point.
However, he interviewed for a position closer to home today, and in his words, "it couldn't have gone better".
You just never know who else is interviewing, and the posting was asking for more experience than he has. So, it's not a done deal.
We will hear next week. It would be really really good for us, and put an end to the long cold winter of staring at eachother and waiting for the phone to ring.

a "wee" bit of the super bestest SI mojo!!! I think even a wee bit is pretty magical.

I think it is great that you are looking at options. I hope the choices are all yours.

Thank you so much you guys!!
I'll let you all know when/if we hear anything.
We applied to the far away positions as a back up plan. Naturally they called first.
It's very nice to know that either way this goes, he has something promising. I just don't want to leave.

nik, that was actually us in our living room today

He's feeling really really good. If I may brag on his behalf..
He took a 3.5 year college program in a technical field. He made deans list every semester, and graduated with honors in December. His average for last semester was 94 .
This interview was for a position above his experience level. They asked him to prepare a presentation. It was in a subject he was very comfortable with. He presented to a panel and the interview lasted over an hour with another half hour of testing.
One of his school mates interviewed after him and they only kept him for 27 minutes. So I think they decided they wanted him as soon as he left. They were supposed to call next week and called with the verbal offer today before checking his references. We are so pleased, and I am very very proud of him.

Sending the mojo back your way tushnurse! It will come, but boy do I know how much it sucks to wait.

We are just waiting on the written offer now. It will come when his references are checked.
