I am back from California. It rocked, will elaborate later.
I still have not heard word on the new job, though I got an email on Friday from one of my references to let me know the HR director called her. I hope that means they selected me for the position and just have to do the due diligence of verifying a reference. I hope I find out soon, as it's very difficult to knit with my fingers crossed, and they are coming dangerously close to falling off due to lack of blood flow from constant crossing :)
Now, off to bed and try to convince myself to wake up in the morning back to the job I am SOOOOOOO over!
