I'm Getting Screened

OK, I couldn't wait for two weeks to send an email to my new placement officer. I sent a “Hi it’s me” email to her today. She replied in a couple of hours. Here is a summary of the email:

    My application is currently being screened and should move to my placement officer's desk within the next two weeks. My placement officer said she will be contacting me as soon as my application reaches her!

The Home Front

I met with a second realtor today to discuss selling my house. I plan to talk with one more realtor, and then make a decision on who I will "hire" to sell my house.

I have a number of smallish type things to fix on the house first. Did I ever say how much I hate fixing houses -- just ask me about the time I had the great idea of buying a fixer-upper house...

Hey, if you live in the Twin Cities area, and enjoy fixing houses, send me an email, we could have some fun together!

New PO

I sent an email to my placement officer to say that I had received my medical clearance and that I was looking forward to the next steps.

(I'm trying to be present without being overbearing)

I received an email response in just a few hours. Here is the gist of it:

    I have a new placement officer. My original placement officer has taken on a new position at the Peace Corps. My new placement officer is going to review my application materials, and then something is going to happen -- I'm not exactly sure what -- I'll probably send her an email in a couple of weeks.
