It is official! The interviews are done, the offers (and sadly, a few rejections) have been sorted, and Josh has accepted a job back in Texas! For those who know us in real life, we'll be moving right back into our old house. Our friends that are renting it need to leave just about the same time we need to move back in.
This is another post-doc position, but he is jumping from NIH (where he's at now) to USDA. Since this is his 2nd post-doc, he's also jumping up the government employee pay scale a bit, so that's nice. This position is slated to last 2 years and then he will be on the hunt for a permanent position.
His last day of work here is expected to be September 6. He doesn't start down there until around October 10th though and we're working on planning some travel during the break, so we'll be in and out of our old stomping grounds for a while. I'm sure we will be camped out at Rosa's, Taco Cabana, Casa Ole, Ninfas and Freebirds quite a bit if anyone's looking for us! And if we're not there, you'll probably be able to find me hugging a book shelf at Half Price or skipping down the aisles of HEB.
