GFD!

Woohoo! Yesterday Ross interviewed with the chief at Georgetown Fire Department and was offered a job on the spot!

I'm so proud of him and excited for his new gig. Georgetown has been his dream job since he was in the fire academy. He knows lots of the guys who work there and gets along well with all of them, which is important when your lives depend on each other and you have to spend 24 hours together at a time. They also have a pipe &drum band which he hopes to play in. And in October they are big supporters of breast cancer awareness. All in all - a great place to be working!

On Thursday he goes in for a polygraph test and once he passes that will be given a date/time for a medical exam. The offer is technically pending passing both of those tests but we're not worried. He has nothing to lie about and is healthy as a horse.

What a great way to kick off our weekend!

PS And now that the job situation is settled, I have the clear to book four nights in Cozumel for us next month! Hurray vacation-land!

Yay! Congrats Ross! And yay vacation! We just got back from a trip to Playa del Carmen and spent a day riding scooters around Cozumel. Definitely go to Mezcalito's for the margaritas and get a drink in a coconut or pineapple at Playa Bonita. :)
