Look what came over the weekend!
It's like 50,000 pounds of weight have been lifted from my shoulders!
I got an email from my Mom, who of course opened the parcel signed for from the embassy---and sat in my cube at work for an hour in shock.
Today I spoke for *four hours* over Skype with my colleague 'M' she is so amazing and nearly as happy as I am. Her centre is preparing for Oktoberfest celebrations next week and we exchanged Drindl pictures...lol.
I've got at least a suitcase of classroom supplies and everything else to pack. A large cake that says 'Auf Wiedersehen Friends!!" for my colleagues at my current position. I intend to give my notice on Tuesday.
I ask you to please pray for 'A' whose application was rejected yet again. An application is now going forward for her in another German state.
I'll to fly to Cologne within the next two weeks.
Thank you so much for your kind words and thoughts, this remains a tense experience I would not care to repeat!
