D Got It!

I am very grateful and pleased to report that D got a job offer (for the position he really wants) yesterday and accepted.

He and I are delighted, as you can imagine, and he can work through the last couple of weeks in his current job in peace knowing the transition will be seamless. Thank you all for your best wishes. The universe heard it!

I had gone into the interior of Iceland yesterday and spent 7hrs being pummeled by sleet and rain with 6 other courageous souls. Man, was it not easy. I do feel a bit beat up this morning.

You really come to appreciate the value of investing in good gear. Water repellent is not waterproof and wind resistant is not wind proof and a good sturdy pair of hiking socks and boots are worth its weight in gold as some of my colleagues found out yesterday. I think they are going to hit this store today before planning any more outings.

Was going to go meet and ride some Icelandic horses today -- have a couple of hours to decide but need to wake up first! It is one of those mornings when I wish I drank coffee!


  1. Congratulations!!!

    Sounds like you're having lots of fun playing with the rain & sleet =P

  2. Congratulations to D. That was quick! And blogging from Iceland...very cool.

    Remember it's never too late to take up coffee drinking. :-)

  3. Congratulations D!! Wonderful news! This is what being prepared and proactive does. Terrific!

    The Icelandic ponies are lovely - but watch out for their natural gait (I can't remember what it's called). It's something between a very fast trot and a canter's a bit of a bone shaker.

    Enjoy the rest of your trip!

  4. Congratulations to D on getting the job he wanted! What a relief for you both!

  5. Thanks everyone! D thanks you too!
