Notice to the firm

I received an official offer letter (by email) from USPTO for a re-hire as a patent examiner. This afternoon, I went to see the president of the firm and gave my notice for my last day to be January 31, 2011. This was really tough for me even though I knew I was making the right choice. Thanks to Linda and Sarah for their support – I did it!

My start date at USPTO is February 14, 2011 and I have to be in VA for three months – which takes me to May 14, 2011 (my third trimester). woo-hoo! After this date, I am eligible to work from home in PA full-time.

The sad part is, I will be away from my love…but hopefully being with Tonia/Brian in VA will help ease the pain. Hopefully!
