2/20 Chocolate cake and champagne

What in the world would possess Genia and Caroline to surprise me with champagne and chocolate cake?

Could it be that I got hired today?

Yep. I'm going to be working as a therapist for a mental health center in Quincy, IL beginning March 24. Am I thrilled? You betcha.

If all works out as planned, I'm going to buy my niece Kris's house when I get there.

So much to do between now and the 21st, which is my last day at work. One month from tomorrow. Wow.

Thanks, Genia and Caroline. I had a really fun evening.

(Oh, and I kicked their butts at spades. It really is my lucky day.

OMGoodness....What great news. I know the money will be tight, but the fringe benifits of being at "home" will make all those Mac&Cheese meals taste devine. Congratulations Potential Neighbor, and thanks for sticking around in MS until Eric and I get our day in New Orleans. See you soon!

That is great news, except for the part about moving to Quincy and being my neighbor.
Don't take offense if we move, just kidding, that is a long way down the road.
Looking forward to having you back home and remember Cindy will cut your grass.

Happy for you, Jer. :) It will be interesting to see what the dogs think about snow.

Andrea said...

Congratulations Jer! It didn't take you any time at all to find a job. Mississippi's loss is Quincy's gain.

Jer said...

Thanks, Cindy, Joe, Gin, and Andrea. And Joe, thanks for the laugh. (Oh, you weren't kidding???)

I am thrilled and have so much to do that I'm exhausted just thinking about it.

Want to help pack while you're here, Cindy? :)

YAY, congrats Aunt Jer! Wow, that didn't take long!! I know some people that work there and enjoy it-I think it will be a good move for you.

Welcome home Jer! I am so happy and proud of you. I can't wait.

Love,
Jeff

Cindy said...

Any other time I'd love to help you pack Jer, but I'm sure you heard that I will be on vacation that week ;O)

Jer said...

Thanks so much, Kelly and Jeff. It will feel so good to be home again. Can't wait to see everybody. Party at my house--as soon as move in. :)

Jer said...

Cindy, we'll have so much fun. I know you will love it here--the Gulf is incredibly beautiful.

Dave said...

I'm thrilled for you, Jer. And luckily, all your family is planning to tithe 10% of their adjusted gross income to you.

Cindy said...

Is Dave your delirious friend?

Jer said...

Cindy, you can see why I love this guy. (No, not in that way.)

And, DF, thanks. You might be right; my family does love to surprise me.
