Almost a citizen

It's done.  It is complete.  All the things leading up to today are finished and I can sit back and relax.  (Well, pending making all of the life decisions but hey, give me a break.) 

I spent the day in the city filing paperwork and doing my citizenship exam and yes, 100% in 2 minutes 17 seconds of the 45 minutes allowed.  I may be an overachiever but beat THAT.  It wasn't hard.  I now know more about politics (specifically Australian) than I will ever know again.

Now I am on the train back to Northgate to pick up my car, and tonight am going Southside to J's for paella.  And I just found out today he is going to be a father!  Wow - as L put it, usually she would say oh I'm so sorry, but this time feels strangely excited - although oh my, the poor child.  LOL.

I now have nothing left to do, other than day to day work and life decisions.  I won the lottery on the external interview also and was offered a May start date, and I was terribly honest and told them that it was too soon (the parents are visiting) and that I still needed to find out what the company bid import offers me, and sort out the financial situation.  So they said they would get back to me with future course dates and more information.

So, I do need to decide between the 737 and the e145.  The e145 will be fun and challenging and wow all the responsibility with no back up, and the 737 will be regulated and easy and more money and less fun, and much more useable across the board.  Pros and cons list, anyone?

In the meantime, I shall enjoy not having anything else on my "to do list." 

Dog in an hoodie.  Just 'cause it's cute

  1. I'm not even going to try to help you make the decision apart from praying, but if I found a dog in my hoodie...
