After much deliberation, many pro's and con's lists, sleepless nights, minor nausea, and some wife has decided to take a new job. She applied for this job way back in April and there were many hoops to jump through. At one point during the summer, she had actually formally withdrawn her application because she was tired of the process but then that's when the phone started lighting up with calls from HR and even calls from the Director himself all but begging her to do a phone interview. She declined and after half a dozen more calls she gave in. She did good during the phone interview then she had to take another test and then, finally, a face to face. They made an offer 3 weeks ago and she countered. It took a week and half for them to get back to her. In the end, they were able to meet up and seal the deal.

She will now be working for the state and she'll be visiting with Social Services offices in Teller County (ours), Douglas, Canyon City, Pueblo, and La Junta and making sure that everything is being done the way it should be. She will also be in a position to be more of an impetus for change at the state level. She's very excited and a bit nervous. I'm extremely proud of her. She's always made more money than me but now I'm slightly embarrassed to say that I only provide for slightly less than 37% of the furnishings in this house. It's a good thing I'm so damn good looking.
