But, did you tell her whe to meet you? You left out that detail, or maybe you left out that detail when you talked to her. You do tend to arrive to vacation resorts on the wrong day.

Got a call back to the final round on a job interview today which is good, but brings with it a bit of a quandry. If it all does work out, (hoping and praying it does) it will cause a one month pay gap between my current job, which pays your last check on your last day of work, and the new one which pays monthly based on the prior month's hours. Knowing about it now, I can plan for it somewhat, though that calls into question just how we approach Christmas. Second issue, which is somewhat related to the first, is that if my last day is BEFORE 12/31/2012, I will get paid cash for ALL of my accrued time off hours. (Right now, that is 58 hours..would go a LONG way to helping bridge that gap.) BUT if I wind up leaving after the 31st, I can only carry over 40 to the next year. And since they blackout time off off during the last two weeks of Dec, it is going to be tight knowing whether or not to take an extra 3 days off mid month or hold onto them in hopes of cashing in but risk losing the hours. HOPING they make a hiring decision soon and don't play it out for weeks on end.

The job is very different than what I do now. Currently I'm in a call center helpdesk supporting Public Safety users. This would be in a school district doing "Real" IT work. (Fixing PC's, user training, network troubleshooting, etc.) The thought of being back in a hands-on IT department again makes me downright giddy.

I know there is no use worrying over what I cannot control. Indeed I am reminded of my grandfather's oft invoked musing "What is to be will be, even if it never happens."

I don't know exactly what that means actually, but I guess time will tell where the chips are gonna fall.

Been there and done that my friend. Couldn't take it anymore one day so I took the dog to play in the park. And by "park" I mean I dropped her off at PetSmart to get her claws trimmed, then went next door to Starbucks and enjoyed the mess out of some WiFi.

I plan on starting a Memorial Thread someone on the other site, probably in the subscriber forums (so that no one has to worry about what gets posted showing up in a Google search).

The coins are cool. I'm not really a collector, but have some old Silver Dollars with Eisenhower (I think) from my parents. I have a few Morgan Silver Dollars which are my most valuable.

Just as long as we're on the lawn, that's really all that matters. CJ could make this easier and just add on some rooms for us,

That's the thing with the resale market. You can find a small resale contract for $60 per point. That way, it's not a huge downpayment and you can add on thru Disney or continue thru resale as you go.

And I couldn't get an invite?

Yes, it was hard to get in F&W, which was why we bought another contract there as well.

So sorry, can't help you there. Great program though that gave her a lot of confidence especially when talking on front of an audience.

Split the difference. Burn 18 hours in early December. Then cash your maxxed out 40 hours if you get the new job.
