Well, it's a tentative offer depending on the results of her background check, which I think will be fine (as long as they don't look too closely into my background). Other than that, it looks like we'll be moving out of sunny South Florida to Indianapolis this summer (now to talk her into one last visit to Disney before moving). The background check will take 4-6 months, so she will probably go up ahead of us and when the girls finish school the three of us will follow. Culture shock here we come....

Thanks for the prayers and good wishes. And I thought last Christmas @ MK was magical.

I'll keep ya'll posted throughout.....

The in-laws gave us a bunch of shirts for Christmas. I'm going to wear all of them before digging back into my closet. It helps extend the vacation.

More awesome news!
If you don't mind me asking...what kind of job requires a background check that lasts 4 to 6 months?! Is she working for the Indiana branch of the Secret Service?
Oh, and it's not the culture shock you need to worry about. It's the temperature shock.

Do you think on the first page you could link (or post) the pictures of the DDC meets? Maybe you can put them in the same post as the nemesisisisis post?
Most definitely a great idea... when I get time I will get this done.

I used to work for the USDA in a position that required a 6 month background check. I couldn't quite understand the point of it though, as the check was being conducted after I'd started, during my first 6 months on the job. I'd get random phone calls once in a while from people who I had listed as references asking telling me about it, or from the background checkers asking for more info about something. All the while, I had access to everything I had access to after the check was complete.

Yes, lots of good news. And did I mention that last Friday while I was at hollywood studios my department had their holiday luncheon? I obviously wasn't there, but I still won a prize! $100 to Best Buy. Black Ops here I come. Ok, the other guys' news is all better than mine, but this doesn't exactly suck.

I think that is a great idea as well. A good way to put faces with names around here. I just ask that you prioritize your Trip Report somewhere higher than this on your list of things to do "when you get time"
