On my way…
I got a packet in the mail from Santa Clara County. It was like getting a college acceptance letter – thin means rejection, fat means acceptance. It was a little fat. I tore it open like nobody’s business. The first page reads: “Congratulations! We are pleased to accept you into the University of California Cooperative Extension Master Gardener Volunteer Program in Santa Clara County for 2011.”
If you recall, back in August, I attended the seminar and turned in my application. I hadn’t heard anything, so I assumed I wasn’t accepted. I am quite surprised.
I still have to accept, pay the fee, and figure out the logistics. But I am very excited. Classes are Thursdays during the day, so I have to work that out with my job. And the first class is while I’m still scheduled to be in Pittsburgh, but that can be changed too.
