happy news!!!!!

I was NOT going to post again today... Lord knows I'm afraid of those dreaded comment whore watchers... not that I'm close to that, but a girl can't be to careful.. certain names are hard to shake..
I was sitting at work today... so very happy i work in AC by the way, and my boss came up to me and said my son was on the phone.. I said"on the phone? you mean he is holding?" He is a minute miser with his cell if he was holding for me this meant something was up. And for those of you with out children, when a parent says something is up.. translate that to mean...wow this can't be good"
I answer the phone, mentally thinking about how much i have in my bank account, how much I have that i can charge.... where the nearest hospital is to him.. you know nice comforting thoughts!
He says to me "himomhowareyouijustwantyoutoknowihaveajobteachingthisfallinnorthcarolinaihavetobetherebythe11thofaug' ....... ..... ...... ...
What??? what the heck did he just say?? i know i heard the word JOB!!! ( really welcome news of any parent of a 20's something child) I said repeat that, in English, with punctuation and slower. "hi mom, how are you? I just want you to know I have a job teaching this fall in North Carolina. I have to be there by the 11th of August"

Yippie!!!! i did a little dance in the bank.. so happy no one was in there LOL. I screamed into the phone... I told my boss and co-workers... geez. He will be teaching math and coaching wrestling. I am so happy for him and his fiance.. she was saying in the background.. "one more year until we get a boxer' LOL she is so cute... I'll miss him tremendously.. I love him, and his fiance, but I am so happy for their new start in life. I feel truly 125% blessed today
Okay, i'm done... no i'm not.. watch out because if you have a blog and I comment on it... i'm telling you all over again

Congrats Curious! I personally know how hard a teaching job is to find these days, so that is certainly wonderful news and now you have a place to visit!

Thanks for the invite!

That is good news! A teacher, huh? I often think I would've chosen that field 20 years ago...

Oh, and I think... that 11 p.m. in Pittsburgh is 11 p.m. in Cleveland... but ya never know... maybe they moved themselves into the next time zone when the Steelers kicked ass up there so many years ago!

Congratulations to you and your son. Hope all goes well for him; he seems like a good guy and he deserves it.

Now, if only I can get *my* job scenario together... Nothing would please my own parents more if I could land that elusive full-time job. They deserve to be as proud as you are today.

Where in North Carolina? Very pretty state! My eldest just took a vacation up to South Carolina to visit a girlfriend. That may be interesting.

Congrats sweetie!!! I'm very happy for you!!

lookandwink... so if your son moves to S C to be with his girlfriend and my son moves to N C, does that make us friends, or relatives?
