More Breaking News...

Another light blogging night... Spent most of it replacing the fill valve on the toilet and giving my daughters a much needed bath. I'll have more to write over the weekend, so stay tuned. In the meantime, here is a bombshell for you.

Got a call shortly after 7 p.m. The Online Payment Subsidiary of a Big Online Auction Company is going to tender an offer, and it's about double what I make now, plus bonuses and benefits. I was floored, awestruck, and fearful at the same time. I am staring right into the face of what may well be the biggest career opportunity of my life. Had someone told me as recently as a year ago that this would be happening, I would have written the person off as insane.

My wife was there when I took the call on my cell phone, and afterwards she said that she had a feeling that it was them making an offer. She said she was happy for me, but that she was scared. She was holding back tears, but cushioned it with humor saying that at least she had a reason to drink tonight. Earlier in the day, she had made plans to go out with the other preschool moms to a bar which is a favorite among the Parrotheads.
