I’m sorry, I’m not too present today. I’m busy helping Grade 5 make some seasonal crafts this afternoon, plus I have a few seasonal errands of my own to do, and then Queenie has an appointment this afternoon, and…well, it’s just very busy here at The Burrow right now. I’ll come back in a day or two with something interesting to say, I promise.
In the meantime, maybe you could just think some positive thoughts for me about that job I interviewed for yesterday. I know, it’s completely ridiculous to be so pumped up about a one-hour-a-day job. Another mom, who meant well I know, pointed out that I’ll probably spend almost as much on gas driving to and from this job as I will make after taxes at this job. Way to burst my bubble, sweetheart. It’s true, from an economic standpoint, this isn’t the best job I could have. However, it puts me an an excellent position to find a more lucrative job next year, when Tonka is in
free daycare full-day school. Plus, it’s at a SCHOOL. Only fellow teachers know the significance of that lovely, lovely word. SCHOOL, where there is LEARNING, and KIDS, and BOOKS, and PREDICTABILITY and TEACHERS who CARE. I heart all those things. I would SO love to work in a school environment. From my brief interview yesterday, I got a good feeling about this particular school. It seemed warm and fun and just exactly where I’d like to be.
So, if you don’t mind, spare me some good wishes and positive thoughts, okay? And if you happen to have a magic wand, it wouldn’t hurt to cast a good spell or two in my direction either.
Oh look, Queenie’s got my back. Thanks, Cutie. I knew I could count on you.
Update: Don’t bother with the positive thoughts, I didn’t get the job. The upside of this is I’ll have more time to focus on laundry and cleaning toilets. Awesome.
