Decisions have been made

Being a planner, my heart finds peace when plans are laid out and set in motion. I can still hear my mother If you fail to plan, you plan to fail.

After over six hours of interviewing this week, I have accepted a position with a school district in Virginia. Coming from a small district with only 10 speech language pathologists, I'll be joining a team of 230+ SLPs. I was quite impressed with the SLP administrators and the supports they have in place for their clinicians. The school district is very forward thinking with their use of technology in the therapy setting, which causes my eyes to enlarge with enthusiasm!

So, I will be saying a tearful farewell to my Riverside abode on June 5th and spending a few months with my family in San Diego County. I'm looking forward to some bonding time with my youngest siblings, as they were 8 and 10 when I last lived near them. An added benefit is that after having me under her roof for about 2 months, my mom will be more willing to have me move across the country. ; )

I'd like to make a road trip to Provo/Salt Lake in late July to visit friends and family. Then stop in Colorado to visit a college roommate. Let me know if you have any recommendations for a cross country drive. I thought I would allocate 2 weeks for traveling/visiting.

My goal is to arrive in the DC area by August 1st and use the next 24 days to get settled in and thoroughly explore the city. My mom has a list of must sees. Can't wait! Well, as Dad would say, I bet I can. Let's watch.
