I'm getting back into the swing of things again... the constant on the go nature of my trip caused me to need a couple of days to get back to normal. I began today by sending out applications to several different companies, private schools, and the like. I guess I've got to start getting serious about finding something that will bring in a pay check once these from Memorial Hermann run out.
I've still got the job fair coming up for all the public school districts in the area on June 9th - so everyone start praying that I'll find an answer in the form of a teaching job in the next few weeks. It would add a lot of relief to this puzzle that I'm currently living in, and give me even more peace and joy in the time off. The earlier I can find a job, the more I will truly feel like I've been given the gift of a summer.
I feel more than ever like this has been such an opportunity - I know that ever since I graduated college... I've wished to have a summer to experience again, and I'm not wasting a minute of this year's opportunity! Having the benefit of my current knowledge instead of being a 21 year old kid... has really made me appreciate the time off even more than ever.
Tonight, I'm off with the girls from my old church to celebrate one of our friends moving to Canada with her family. We are certainly going to miss her, but wish her well. We're headed to dinner at BJ's and then a place called the Chocolate Bar, and I promise to only indulge in something small. Maybe the ice cream is the safest bet, but we'll see when I get there. I hope that Staci has a great time, and a safe move to Canada. We sure will miss her!
