    When I was adding new people, 2 jobs got deleted by accident...but I didn't realize it and when I went to count it didn't make sense. Just fixed it all. We should be good now with 20 jobs. Sorry!

    A Dramatic Day

    I'm going to tell the story in graphic (nauseating?) detail for dramatic effect.

    Mrs. Redtop had two interviews scheduled today in the Washington DC area. Our plan was that I would fly to Philadelphia and rent a car, pick her up in Baltimore, and drive and stay at a hotel near the first interview. The times were 9:15 and 1:15. Why Philly and Baltimore? Flight schedules and cost.

    My flight was delayed a bit, meaning I'll pick her up later, later getting to the hotel, less time to collect and sleep. When I arrive in Philly her flight is delayed too.

    Around 8PM I'm still driving and get another call. The Baltimore flight is cancelled. So (as a backup) is the Washington flight. I don't want her to have to go all the way home and then get up at some silly hour the next morning, but I don't have internet access, so I call my brother who quickly books her a hotel at the airport on Hotwire. Air Canada is no help whatsoever to her in rebooking, and she can't eveen get out of the airport. (In Toronto, going to the USA, you clear customs in Toronto, so you are technically in the USA while waiting for your flight. So she has to clear customs again to "enter" Canada.)

    She gets to the hotel while I'm in the midst of an hour-plus wait on hold with Air Canada. Fortunately, they agree to change her to United and fly her to Washington-Dulles at 6AM or 7AM the next day. The 6AM is really 6:30 so I book her on the 7:00. At 5:30AM she calls me. United has the reservation but not the ticket. I call Air Canada and they tell me that because it's a frequent flier ticket, they can't do a thing, but maybe the frequent flier department can help - when they open at 7:00.

    My wife now tells me that they found the ticket (good) but the 7:00 is delayed. If it had arrived on time, we could have gotten to her interview by about 9:45. I walk over to the school and they call the department head she's supposed to interview with and make her apologies. I find out that her schedule is flexible, and the office staff lets me use their computer to see that the 7:00 is now scheduled to arrive at 10:45. Ugh, maybe she can make one interview but not the other.

    I wander back to the hotel to maybe take a little nap when I see a missed voice-mail. At 7:15 my wife said "I'm boarding now." Not sure what's going on, I figure I'd better get to the airport. While on the way I call United and find out she was moved from the 7:00 to the also-delayed 6:00.

    So I get her at the airport at about 8:45 and we get back to the school by 9:45 or so. She comes out all smiles (this was her first choice), telling me they said they will check her references and get back to her by Tuesday. We get in the car and go to the other interview, an hour away, grabbing some lunch on the way.

    So after being stressed all night, getting very little sleep, leaving the hotel at 4:30 AM and flying and going straight to the interview...

    At 3:00 she gets an email from the second school saying they were "Very impressed" with her and that they are "seriously interested" in her. At 7:30 she gets an email from the first school saying that as soon as she formally applies on their website, they will offer her the job.

    So score this one:

    Mrs. Redtop, French 9-12
    and you will all be rid of me! Or at least my whining.

    Just wanted to congratulate everyone who has and will receive a job this year! I was on this list for my very first position this past year and I'm happy to say my year was successful and I'll be back next year!

    Good luck to everyone searching!
