Without going into too much detail yet (because, dear God, I don't want to jinx this), I got notification today that something I have been waiting for with bated breath might actually go through. The nibble on the line is more sure and solid. I've been here before, though, which is why I'm not saying anything for sure yet. I will find out in the next two weeks about this possibility.
Saying no more than this, if you've got some good thoughts, prayers, karma, crossed fingers or bonus points to send in my direction, I'll take 'em about now. (Thanks in advance. And yes, I will inform here if and when this goes through.)
