I got the job! We got the lot!

And you thought we might be hunkering down in Yosemite before this…

Dave B. offered me the position at the mountaineering school a few days ago. I've been doing little happy dances every few minutes. No, those aren't epileptic. We are still trying to get together and iron out details like when I'll start and things like that, but I'm completely psyched about the chance to work there. I think it will be an incredible learning experience and challenging, fun work.

PLUS…we are in escrow on a quarter acre lot here in Yosemite West. We put in a bid on Sunday, and had our offer accepted. Once the building moratorium is over (hopefully next summer)we are hoping to put up a duplex, where we can live in half and rent out the other half in order to pay the mortgage.
