Big news for us

For the first time since 2008 Mike has a full time job. The offer came Friday morning, by Friday evening they were set. He starts in about two weeks, although he hopes to stop in earlier than that and do the paperwork thing.

He's be working mostly out of an office in Seattle, with the potential for some at-home stuff and the likelihood of occasional trips to the East Coast. Among other interesting parts, they want him to learn to fly a plane. So, very cool.

It will be months yet before we're out of the dire financial straits we're mired in, but at least there's now a path out.

Thanks!

And in other news - I found the box of tapes that I somehow thought I had already sent off to you. I apparently got sidetracked because I don't have your mailing address.

Still want them? (I hope so.) What's your address? It may still be some weeks before they actually ship out because (ref. earlier news) I don't have the cash to pay for postage yet - but I will!

Hooray!

And -- fly a plane? That does sound like an interesting extra job responsibility.

Very happy to read about the good news. Best of luck to him in his new job, and may the path out be broad and even more swift than you think.

Great!!
I know these last 5 years have been so stressful and difficult. Don't be too hard on yourself if it doesn't turn around on a dime. Enjoy the little blessings and triumphs.

In the words of Mickey, "gosh! That's SWELL!"

Congratulations! And I am certainly curious about how flying figures in....

I'm so happy for you and Mike! And like someone else said, I thought the thing about flying a plane was a joke. Can't wait to learn more about this gig.

Anyway, having at least one steady income of Real Money will make such a difference for you. I'm really glad about this.
