The phone call came today – I have been offered the job at Colorado State University! Ann and I will probably head to Fort Collins tomorrow to scope out a place to live. Sarah has a friend with a dog-friendly place to rent near campus, and there seem to be lots of others. Even buying a place might not be out of the question. After such a long time floating in our nebulous state with no long-term prospects, it’s strange to suddenly be able to look into the future. I should mention that it’s a 21-month job, so I’m not talking distant future, but it’s a big difference from not knowing where the money will come from tomorrow or next week. I might be able to move my things out of storage for the first time in over three years!
