I got a call this afternoon from the Wichita Eagle offering me a part-time position in the Celebrations section! I'll probably start next week, pending the completion of a background check and drug screening. (Better hold off on the poppy seed muffins!) ;)

Around the first part of the year, they're going to cross-train me to fill in for the Obituary section, too, so I can get more hours. The guy who offered said, "if you want more hours." Of course I want more hours! Who wouldn't want more money if they were offered it? I thought to myself.

Thank you to everyone who's been praying for me. Now, hopefully, Ron can finish his schooling (one more semester) without us having to worry as much.

By the way, my section will only show up in the laid-out fashion in print, not online, although you should be able to access the Celebrations section via the Internet. Just click on my link to the Wichita Eagle.

Unfortunately, I won't be able to cover city council meetings for the Eagle anymore. That was a contracted position, and one cannot be an independent contractor and a regular employee for the same company, I guess. I'm letting go of a six-day-a-week job I've held for the last 18 months! Wow!

Once again, thank you for all your prayers and well wishes. I'll still be blogging, so keep coming back!
