I spent part of my Friday night receiving a legitimate death threat. The leading/most beloved SFers are/have been briefed on the relevant details. Suffice to say it is a pretty great story.

Does it make it better if:

1) This was not the first time this year I've received a death threat (although the other was only somewhat legitimate) and
2) It is not the first legitimate death threat I've received in my short life?

Oh, also, there is one house across the street from me that isn't very nice to look at but is on a fairly large plot of land (for the hood) and is IIRC a duplex so the house is pretty big. Anyway, I've always said that if there was one house I would buy that would be it. The older houses in my area can still go for cheap, and considering the state of repair its in, it almost assuredly would be cheap. Well on Sunday a for sale by owner sign went up so it will probably be cheaper still. Considering the area is isolated it'll be hard for an investor to know it is for sale so there's a good chance I could snag it, too.

I'm going to give the guy a call later today see what the price is.

I've received more death threats than I would care to admit, a multiple at my old job and from a guy I sued.

Lol. A death threat on SF, or in your day job?

MrsG is wrapping up maternity leave in the next couple of weeks, so she stopped by her office this morning to check in and talk a bit about the details of her coming back to work. While she was there, they told her they could use any hours she could work if she wants them ASAP, basically on her terms, and then they offered her a promotion!

It's making her a little nervous, because she's very comfortable in her job now, but I think it will be good for her. My worry for her is the possibility that it could means more hours, which is not something either of us want. More than likely, however, it will just mean she has to fit more into the same-length day, something that shouldn't be tough since she's not exactly being challenged by the status quo.

I am a little irked because my new job meant the first time in our marriage that I was making more than her, and this will probably change that substantially, but I think I'll get over it when the paychecks come in. laugh.gif

Wow, that's amazing!

It really is. She's a smart woman (choice in husband notwithstanding), and every place she's worked has raved over her. We've suspected for a while now that her boss was grooming her for a promotion, but neither of us expected it to come on the heels of being out of the office for three months! The crazy thing is that the guy whose job she's taking resigned today, so they obviously want her there pretty badly.

She also, at my urging, used coming back a little early to her advantage by telling them she'd work part time starting now if they'd let her do that a week longer than if she'd done the leave as planned. That'll keep the baby out of daycare until after the holiday and give MrsG a taper into being back at work. I might try and put together a little getaway that weekend so we can have a nice family long weekend before the inevitable chaos of her returning to work.
