Merry Christmas to Me!!!

This past week I received an early Christmas present...I was asked to teach 4th grade for the rest of the year!!!!!!! It is still only a sub job, but is is an everyday sub job. I'm really looking forward to this opportunity. I'm hoping that this will be a foot in the door and improve my chances of getting a full-time job next year.

Refinishing question

For anyone who has been to and seen my house, here's a question for you. Charlie is busy refinishing our master bathroom. Currently there is a door from our bedroom into the bathroom and then also one from the family room into the bathroom. We are debating whether or not to take out the door from the family room and just have the bathroom be a true master bathroom with only access from the master bedroom. What are your opinions?

Charlie update

Charlie had 3 interviews on Thursday. The first one was for a teaching position in Kalamazoo. The principal he worked with at Beecher got a principal position there and wanted Charlie to come work with him. Charlie pretty much did the interview to be accommodating. We don't really plan on moving there for just a teaching position. Then he drove down to Three Oaks, MI for another interview. That one is for an assistant principal position. He feels like he did fairly well in that interview. Then on the drive home he did an interview over the phone for another position in WV. Today he was called back and asked to do a second interview at Three Oaks on Tuesday next week. He really liked that school and was hoping for a call back. He's pretty excited to have gotten one. It would be nice for him to get a different position, especially an administration position, but I am not excited to have to move and we would need to for that job since it's about three hours away. So I have mixed feelings. I'll keep you posted on how it goes. Prayers on Charlie's behalf would be great. Thanks!

Over Memorial Day weekend mom painted some shutters and finally got her and dad's Christmas present hung up. We are all pleased with how it turned out and there is room for more pictures.
And then last week I painted the fireplace since it was the same yucky color that the family room used to be. It matches the door across the room. I absolutely love the contrast against the brick!!!

My internship...

I got the position today. Glad to have the chance to get the experience, disappointed that they want me to work four days instead of three. Was looking forward to having to work less days, but I'll take what I can get. Thanks for the prayers.

2nd interview

Had a 2nd interview today for the internship I interviewed for last week. Met the CFO this time. She seemed pretty sure I'd be getting the position and be starting on Monday. She said she's let me know for sure by the end of the week. She said it will only be a part time position, only working about 3 days a week. This way I can get some good experience and still spend time with the kids and Charlie. I may miss some stuff this summer, but not as much as I had originally thought. I feel much better about that.
