Thing2 got a job as a Vaccine Scientist at a lab in VA. We found an apartment for him yesterday and we will head out on June 14th. Luckily, there isn't much to move, as he can literally put his life in one very large suitcase, one carryon size suitcase and two duffel bags
Once we get there, he has to buy a car, furnish the apartment and learn his way around town. I will stay for a few days to help him get set up and then I think Asshat is going to go see him. He starts his job on the 29th.
He is super excited, though he wanted a little more money (the salary is more than adequate). I am relieved that in this weird employment market he was able to find work at all. He must have applied to 60-70 jobs in the two months that he has been home. Had three interviews before this one. For this job, he submitted the application on a Monday, got the screening call on Tuesday, interviewed on Wednesday and got the offer on Friday.
I am thrilled he's found work in his field, but I will miss the hell out of him.
All three of mine sucessfully launched :-)
