The first time I typed this post's title I accidentally wrote "Changs is in the Air." As in P.F. Chang's? I wish! :)
I haven't posted in a while because I've been busy acting as Penn's personal secretary. By that I mean creating his resume, writing cover letters, and sending e-mails on his behalf, to potential employers.
I have to be careful not to make it totally apparent that his wife is communicating on his behalf. You know, I can't say anything like, "Have a lovely day!" Penn would not even use an exclamation point, much less the word "lovely."
I hope you don't consider this unethical. I think of myself as his one woman recruiter/assistant/PR person. It's fun. I haven't gotten to do anything like this since the arrival of you-know-who.
So the job of Penn's dreams appears to exist. It's like someone created a position with him in mind. He's the perfect fit. At least on paper.
It's in a location that I never even considered as a place to live, which I won't share at this time. It's a very very challenging position, but would be an amazing career move and very rewarding. It's pretty special.
The neat thing is that I haven't married myself to the idea. I have given it a lot of consideration, because it's a very unique job and would affect the whole family. So I've had to work out the kinks in my mind. But I'm not emotionally attached at all.
I've been praying for God to make his will as clear as possible, throughout this job search. If something comes up that isn't right for us, I've asked God to throw an obstacle in the way. Something else came up that we considered, but there was a huge roadblock, which gave us the impression that it wasn't meant for us. So we'll see if all the doors fling open for this opportunity, or not.
At this point I'd estimate that there is a 50% possibility that this job will work out. If so, it will involve a move. And lots of changes to our family.
And I feel totally at peace about it, rather than the dreadful pit in my stomache that the thought of the last potential opportunity created. So I guess that's a good sign.
I'll keep you posted! We should have more information tomorrow.
