Great Day

Hi All,

I'm going to keep this fairly short because my eyes are killing me, and apparently want a break from the laptop screen tonight.

I completed day 6 of working out, and did in fact run again today. I was a little iffy on it when John left this morning because my hip was bothering me... but I pushed through it and kept on trucking. As it turns out - yesterday I ran exactly 1.509 miles and today I ran 1.594 miles - so an improvement, and I'm happy with that.

The interview went well this afternoon, they aren't offering the type of salary I really need - but we're keeping the option open. I should hear back from them next week if I make it to the next round of interviews.

When I got home though, I had another email from someone wanting to interview me... and a phone call (literally the minute I walked in) from a church friend who's school is in desperate need of a 1st grade teacher!! The school office was closed by the time she got to call me, but was going to talk to her principal first thing in the morning if she didn't get her via cell phone this evening. She said that they were about to offer the job to a counselor that used to teach at a college... so she thought that I'd be much better for the job than someone that is used to dealing with adult aged students.

We shall see where God lands me. I would absolutely LOVE it if the 1st grade deal worked out for me, but if it doesn't - I'm at peace with that now too. I'm a little slow on the uptake with that whole making peace about it stuff... but better late than never, right?

I've got another interview tomorrow afternoon at 4 with another place - at Starbucks no less... which I'm not sure what that means. Is that a less formal interview setting? Should I not wear a jacket? I don't know... so I guess I'll error on the side of caution and wear my suit. I've spent a good amount of time on Starbuck's website today figuring out what I can order within my calorie constraints too... the funny thing is that I've never thought about it before, and manage to lose a pound everytime I drink one...

Things are moving and shaking around here... and I'd suspect that if the teaching thing is going to happen that it'll happen within the next day or so because the professional development days for the teachers start on Monday. We'll see!!
