3 weeks in...

Sep 15, 2012 - 2 comments

Well, yesterday (14 Sept 2012) was the end of Anita's 3rd week in the new job for the US Navy in southern Maryland, also her 1st payday.

She seems to be settling in there okay, but real estate is a BIG sticker shock.  Looks like we'll be spending twice what we did in 1996 to get something comparable.

Hope to join her in 3 - 4 weeks, might even have a job at one of the stores my employer has in the area.

Changes coming...

Mar 03, 2012 - 2 comments

Friday we had two big pieces of news, which will mean positive life changes for Anita and me.

I got word that my academic petition to return to my old college, where I started, but failed to earn a Bachelor's degree (over 30 years ago) will readmit me as a non-traditional, long distance student to complete the 3 classes I need.  One of my former professors has been acting as my adviser.

AND, Anita accepted a tentative job offer from the US Navy to work at the Portsmouth Naval Yard in Kittery, Maine.  The process is still a couple of months away from completion, and she is hoping for a counter offer from a different branch of the Navy to work with aircraft programs at the Air Station in Patuxent River, Maryland.
