I'm almost employed

Not quite, but almost employed.

I've had a few more conversations with Andrew about all of this, and the more I learn about the company and the job, the more excited I get.  I've given him my resume so that he can submit it with the paperwork to create this position.  They'll still have to do a background check and things, so I'm not actually hired yet, but he said he doesn't expect any problems.

Of course, this means that I'll be staying in Ohio permanently.  In the few weeks since this first came up, I've thought about it a lot, what it would be like to stay in my hometown.  I haven't really lived here in a long time.  Prior to this time, the last time I even kind of lived here was six , almost seven years ago when I stayed with Mom for six months before moving to Edmonton.  And I always knew that I was just here temporarily, like I thought this time was going to be too.  The truth is that there's a lot of things I like about being here.  My biggest hesitation has always been the thought of living so close to my mom.  I know I'll definitely have to set some ground rules with her once I move into my own place, but I've had to remind myself that maybe it's not going to be as bad as I imagine it being.

This actually feels really good. This is a growing company and I'm coming in at the ground floor of a new office in a new job position.  I get to help create what this job will be, which I love.  I get to work with and for someone that I've known for more than 20 years, so we already have a good level of trust and respect.  Not to mention that we're good at giving each other a hard time!  There's going to be another guy working out of this office and obviously I haven't met him.  But Andrew's known him for a long time; they were in the military together for a while.  This just sounds like it could be something I really end up liking, and that makes me excited.

Maybe it's time to really come home.
