Double Sighs of Relief!

I am extremely happy and proud to report that both Momma and Daddy Johnson are gainfully EMPLOYED in St. Louis!!!! case you can't tell that was me letting out an extremely content and happy sigh of relief. I can FINALLY stop eating. The final pieces in our move to the Lou are coming together.

Bj had been in talks with this new burger place, Five Guys Burgers and Fries for a few weeks, he had an interview last weekend and was offered the job! He is going to be the General Manager of one of the new stores - he is so excited and I am so proud of him. He so deserves this wonderful opportunity to run his own store and I can't wait to watch him be amazing at it. It is different than he though he wanted, more fast casual, but he is really looking forward to the change. We may be a little excited too as it means that he won't have to work into the wee hours of the morning anymore! Congrats Brian Johnson - we are so proud of you :)

I have been with Platts, a McGraw Hill Company for the last year and a half and I love it. I was always interested in their Education side - as I love to read and I love kiddos. I am happy to report that I will be transferring to McGraw Hill Higher Education as a Sales Representative in the Humanities, Social Sciences and World Languages Department! I am so excited for this opportunity - I interviewed when I was in St. Louis the end of March and I just got such a wonderful feeling from the office and employees - I feel so fortunate to be able to stay with such a great company. I finally got the call on Tuesday (on my way to pick up Deb at the airport - I was going 90 when I got the message and we all know Momma doesn't drive 90mph!) I am also really excited that this opportunity will allow me to work a four day, 30 hour work week that follows a school calendar. So, I will be home an extra day, ten extra hours, summers and winter breaks with my little bugster!
