Hi all! John is away on an overnight A-100 retreat (which is apparently a lot of fun), so I don't have much to report in the way of FS news. Now that the list is in, there isn't much to do besides wait until the 17th and hope for the best.
But I did want to make an announcement! Starting on Flag Day (or shortly thereafter, depending on if I'm in the midst of a mental collapse or not), I will be introducing my new Foreign Service blog, "Most Eligible Family: the Foreign Service adventures of a runner, a writer, and a rugrat." I will link to it on Fridays, but I decided it would be best for people who are only interested in FS stuff to not have to wade through all my writing crap, and vice versa. Eventually all of the mommy-related stuff will probably end up on Most Eligible Family as well, since what it's like to be an eligible family member (EFM - basically a family member who meets the requirements of the FS) is a big part of what people are interested in when they're researching the Foreign Service. Scribble Babble will most likely go back to being my writing blog, and if I ever do get published, it will probably go away entirely. But that's a very big IF, so don't freak out or anything :)
Anyway, I hope you all will come by and check out my new bloggy when it's ready to go up. I'm still working on the design, but I think it's going to be a lot of fun. In the meantime, I hope everyone has an awesome weekend!
