A few days ago I noted that I’d be flying to San Francisco for a job interview sometime after returning from London; I was thinking that it would likely be sometime the week of May 8-12. Today I got an email asking if I could come out there on May 3, 4 or 5. Since we get back home from London the evening of the 2nd, the 3rd logistically and emotionally just didn’t seem possible. So I settled on Friday the 5th, and made my flight and hotel reservations this afternoon.
We’ll get home Tuesday night; Wednesday I’ll go back to work for a day; Thursday morning I’ll take a 6:00 a.m. flight to San Francisco, arriving around noon; and Friday I’ll interview from 9:00 until about 1:00 or so. Friday night Jeff will fly out to join me, and we’ll stay with his folks Friday and Saturday nights, and celebrate a combo late-Easter, [pre-, as Jeff reminds me]Mother’s Day with his mom, and his birthday (technically not until Monday); Sunday I’ll get on a 1:10 p.m. flight to DC, arriving home after midnight; and Monday morning I’ll be back at work again.
Whew! I’m exhausted just thinking about it. But at the same time, I’m excited, and feel really good about it.
