Hubby's interview went amazingly well. It's very nearly a dream job for him. There are no other candidates at this time, and parting words sounded like we can expect an offer this coming week. The salary that was discussed is beyond our hopes, and the benefits package is impressive.

The fly in the ointment is the location, and that's not terrible. It's in Albany. First and foremost, of course, it's not HERE, and that's a sadness. It's not much closer to family in Ohio, and that's another sadness. It's also a very big metro area, and the plant is fairly far in. I don't like city living, but I've said for a long time that I could find ways to be happy in a city; looks like it's time to do that.

On the good side, it's close enough to maintain friendships here, and to help out occasionally at the church. A big metro area means lots of opportunity for me, musically. And while Albany is big, it's not huge, really.

If we get the offer, only a few things would keep us from saying yes. If we had action on a job in a better location, we'd ask for time to play that out. And of course if the salary isn't enough after all, that'd be a deal-breaker.

I am simultaneously hopeful, excited, sad, and scared.
