And, there is a reason the title doesn't say EMPLOYED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have been offered a position in Wisconsin.  In Eau Claire.  The best of four positions they had available. Full-time, permanent.

I am filled with such dual emotions, that the war within me is draining.

I am thrilled that I have a job.
I am sad that it is so far away.
I am thankful to be able to be near my mom and dad and sister.
I am beyond sad that my husband will be several states away.
I am so excited to have a real, live teaching job, in a school that wants me and values me and appreciates who I am and what I stand for.
I am sad that I can't find that here in PDX--I can't even get an interview.
I am pumped to work with my mentor and friend.
I am sad to think of missing book club.
I am nervous and giddy to start all over again.
I am sad to have real winter again in my near future.
I am thrilled that I will be able to watch my Packers without leaving my house...that is, if I will be able to even afford a tv or cable.

Other things I am thinking about:
Re-packing. (thumbs down)
Driving across the country.
Do I bring my cats to keep me company?
ARGH renting in a college town.
Gym? WW?  ARGH
I have a job! Teaching!
I wish my husband didn't have such an awesome job here...I wish I could find this awesome of an opportunity here.
I can finally finish my Masters...
