    I just accepted a job with the National Weather Service as an ET at the GS-11 pay grade. I did a phone interview Tuesday morning and the HR office called me Wednesday morning and offered me the job. It took me 3 years to get hired, but it was worth it. I'm glad I didn't give up, which I was close to doing several times. I start on March 7th. I applied for so many jobs for such a long time, I still have to pinch myself once in a while just to make sure it really happened. This job will more than double my current pay. It feels good to know I can now finally provide for my family the way I've always wanted to.

    I am happy for you. Now maybe the bitterness
    will subside, as I was concerned about you.
