An Embarrassment of Riches, or Not

Stuff is starting to pop on the job front.

As I mentioned before, I had a good interview earlier this week at a wonderful place, and will be talking with the committee helping that rector in the near future about next steps.

I had a good very preliminary interview with another nearby place last week, and I hear through the grapevine that I favorably impressed that rector...hope to hear more from there very soon.

I had a request from a search committee for a rectorship for more materials, which I take as a positive.

A couple of friends have given me heads up about a few other opportunities.

So stuff is starting to move a bit, for which I'm grateful. I don't know how far any of these will go, whether there is something else out there that I haven't heard about yet, whether I will have more than one option ahead, but I sure am grateful to have SOMETHING happening. Thanks for the prayers thus far, and please keep praying.

In the meantime, I'm continuing work on the research project with my professor, and it is getting very interesting indeed. Love this work!

StrongOpinions is in the Big Apple, moving her stuff to her new apartment. I may have to go up there next week to help move the bed, but I'm glad she's settled for next fall. She is almost ready to publish the first issue of her new literary! She will be going to Colorado for a writer's conference after the apartment and magazine stuff is done, then to Paris for a week. Must be nice to be 21. Meanwhile, I'm trying to figure out if PH and I can swing some sort of mini-vacation. It may end up being car-camping in the Shenandoah, which would be just fine by me.

I am just whupped. All the emotion about the ordination plus all the family visiting seems to have just caught up to me, and I slept until 8 this morning (unusually late for me) and I'm still foggy.

I guess it's time to go take a shower and get dressed.
