Wahoo, I still have a job!

Posted in The musings of Erin at 2:23 pm by Erin

Thanks so much for all of your suggestions!  Since today is the first day of the Commentathon, I’m going to try to post at least 4 times this week.  Tomorrow I will post about the house and garden projects.  I may split that up, since there are five million gardening pictures.  Just to warn you, the "garden" that I’ve mentioned may not exactly live up to expectations.  A freeze after planting seeds and a drought with water restrictions don’t combine to do great things for growing gardens.

Happily, today I got GREAT news–my contract came for next academic year (with a small raise but small is helpful anyway)!  I knew I had a job, I wasn’t actually worried…but it’s still nice to have contract in hand.  I’ll sign it and mail it back tomorrow.  One of the things that concerned me was that we need to include letters about our jobs and benefits in our dossier, and my contract goes from August through May.  Technically and according to the state of Georgia, I’m unemployed for June and July.  So the letter that’s in there now says that I have no job.  BUT I can now get another one stating that my job and benefits start up again in August.  Phew!

Tomorrow, pictures.  Here’s one to tide you over from inside my greenhouse: 100_2770
