I HAVE A JOB!
The offer came through by email this afternoon.  I have accepted a position as a Visiting Research Programmer within the Hydrogeology Program in the Department of Geology.  I will be starting Monday, June 26.  (The "Visiting" in the job title means that I can stay in this position for a maximum of three years, but once I'm settled in and I've been productive in the position for a couple of years, I will have a big advantage when they do a formal search for a person to fill the permanent position.  If I can prosper in this position, I can expect to have it for a long time.)

I want to thank everyone for their good wishes in these last few weeks, and appeal for your continuing emotional support.  Getting back into working full time will be a challenge for me, but I'm determined to make it work, and I will have the support of a boss who understands my situation and has promised to help me succeed.

Congrats on getting the job. And I think your new boss sounds like a great guy... that should make the transition back into full-time work much less rocky. :-)
