Forgive me bloggers for i have sinned...

It has been five days since my last confession post. Oh wait...I am NOT catholic, but I have definitely damaged my reputation as faithful blogger no matter what. Of course I have many things to report...On Tuesday I had my job interview...it went very well. The pay is the same as what I make now, except I'd be working with 3 teachers instead of 30, I'd get 9 weeks a year off instead of 4, and I'd work 8:30 - 3 instead of 6 -3. So really, there are a lot a lot a lot of positives...but here's the thing...I will be SO sad to leave my current job...SO sad, not for the work and the challenges and few other things, but for the friendships I have there and the children. The many many children I love as my own. And working in early childhood I know that shortly after I am gone they will forget me. *sigh* It'll be about two more weeks before I hear if I make it to the final interview round. Time will tell, and if I get the job, then I have to decide if I'll actually take it. I'm hoping the interview process drags out since if I take this position, I'd like to start this job in January...so hopefully that time frame will work out. Again....time....lots of time...

I had school Fri and Sat and am really very ready for that to be done. We have 19 weekends left...19 AND this week I got my graduation application on the ole email! I was just a bit giddy that day and truly cannot wait for graduation. I am also at the 6 month point before my internship is done. Over the next few weeks I plan to begin applying at colleges that I would like to teach at next summer. I absolutely hope to be able to teach at GWC eventually, but I have to be 2 years post grad first. Can you feel it? The winds of change are blowing again!

I had high hopes for this weekend, that were quickly dashed by a migraine....yuck! I finally was to the point yesterday that I slept most of the day and when I tried to get up and do something I just couldn't...so I took more meds and was off to bed for the night...I have just a slight pounding today...so hopefully, it is on it's way out. The goal...get through the day, the internship, and parent teacher conferences tonight...tomorrow is another day!

Oh my goodness, you have so much going on, I don't know how you juggle it all!! Congrats on the job interview - the hours sound awesome, wouldn't that be great? I know you would miss your friends and the kids, but you will have new kids to meet and new friends to make! I'm so jealous of your college teaching career - if I had my life to do over again, I'd go straight through to a Ph.D. just so I could stay in college and teach forever! You're like my hero!

Wow Heather...I sure don't feel like anyone's hero...especially my kids during these tough three years, but I sure appreciate your vote of confidence!

Fingers crossed that the new job comes through. Change is hard, but it sounds like you really do want this job.

Oh shoot. Sorry about the Migraine. That must have felt REALLY good getting the graduation thingy sent off. Like light at the end of a tunnel?

Have a great week.
