So looks like I've got a job.
I had a "tryout" last Friday and Monday, and I guess I did OK. They called and offered me yesterday. I have to go through some hoops and I'll be starting ASAP.
It feels really, really good. It's been too long without something solid, and the near-misses have been excruciating to get through. I thought I had LA for sure... that was 13 months ago. Then, LA again 10 months ago, and another almost. We didn't even live here then.
So now, we plant some roots. The longer I went without, the more we remained with one eye toward any available option.
So... hi Boston!
