Pending manager re-approval.

You can stop by the Culinary Institute of America while you are up there. I think they do meals for the public.

What's a Redbook Residency?

Redbook = practical how-to manual

Residency = paid to go help write the manual through practical experience.

It would be hard (okay, it would suck a LOT), but I *really* want Josh to take this opportunity if he is approved. We talked about it before he even applied, so the only surprise is that it might actually happen!

We discussed the boys and I going with, but because of all of the STUFF we'd have to bring, not to mention mail/bills/lawn/housestuff, it really isn't practical. I'd love to, but it just doesn't make sense. We'd pay for him to come back at least once, and maybe twice during the six weeks to visit.

Rachel will most likely be moving in by the end of the month, and that will make things easier; having someone here so I can do shopping at night without the boys or so I can take a quick shower will make all the difference!

This is such a great opportunity for Josh to do something he is interested in (and get his name on a Redbook!) that will be good for his career. It is also exciting to me that he'll get to live someplace else for a while, since he's never been anyplace but here! I really hope he gets approved. It's only six weeks, after all.... I can handle that. :) Of course I might be calling you and begging you to let me bring the boys over so I can have adult conversation...

:) Yah, they will set me up in corp housing (if local management ever figures out if they actually want to let me go now).

I figure I'll fly back once or twice... $350 round trip for a weekend.
