Even though it is very late in the summer to be hiring, I was offered a job yesterday.

Congratulations! I'm so happy for you! I know how worried you were.


First of all things can change in a minute - something else might open up while you are there. It happened to my dh who took a job with really bad schedule and then something else opened up and he jumped at it. You'll see...In a meantime a bird in hand...


Secondly, 90 minute commute can be time well spent if you for example like listening to books on tape (well, ipod). How often do you have books read to you :).


Third, you won't be working daily, so two or three day weeks won't be as bad as 5 day weeks would have been.


Fourth, IT PAYS WELL.


I think it will all work out, you'll see. And nobody is stopping you from applying elsewhere in a mean time.


Congratulations again!

I agree, find some way to occupy yourself during those commutes and I don't think it'll be all that bad! I hope the teaching situation itself is fun and easy on you. Good luck!

Thanks Katherine - I started today, and it was miserable.
