The Process....and Thanksgiving Plans

I have a job! Well, almost. I accepted the job offer yesterday. There was no actual offer to sign...so that wasn't any fun. Wednesday they will start the HR process. They'll need my birthdate to begin the driving record check, background check and drug screen! If all goes well, I will then be issued my plane ticket to training which will leave on the Sunday after Thanksgiving (Nov 26th). I will be staying at a Hyatt on Long Island (about 1.5 hrs by train to NYC) where the company owns a whole floor. I will have a roomate for 4 weeks and a few of us will be sharing a mini-van. The training sounds very intense and I guess they do not encourage visitors...sorry everyone! When I return I get to drive a company car! At first it will be a mini van...then it will be swapped out with a new white Ford 500 in the spring. That's exciting!

Scott and I are going to Des Moines, IA (my home home) for Thanksgiving. This will be Scott's first time experiencing a holiday with my family (besides July 4th). I am very excited. I haven't been home for Thanksgiving since I was in college. We will be at my Aunt Carla's Simple Serenity Farm in Jefferson, IA.

Is it what you imagined?

Oh, by the way, I found out this week that I have been officially removed from the "kids" drawing for gifts at Christmas. I guess once you get married you become an adult...who knew?

Congrats on the job acceptance. Look forward to you being in Iowa and enjoying Thanksgiving at the SSF remodeled version. It will be a true traditional family holiday.
