Oh WHERE to begin

Hello Charming Readers!

What is new with all of you?

Much is happening at Chez Us.

Let's see.....

Beloved Husband has been offered and accepted a new teaching job in a local school district that is not 501. He will be teaching primarily Theatre classes with an English class thrown in for good measure. He will also be directing the Drama productions. The whole thing happened rather quickly and out of the blue, as he was not looking to leave his current position. But these kinds of jobs don't come around very often and it was a VERY nice raise in pay and reduction in paper grading so he decided to do it.

We thought that we would be transferring the girls to a school in the district where he will be teaching, but they don't have all day kindergarten, which we feel is important for #2, so transferring will be looked into again next year.

Only a few weeks of school left. I am still preparing for #2's last day of preschool and it ain't looking good folks. I continue to tear up at the mere thought, so I am going to have to sport sunglasses and sit in the back with my economy size box of Kleenex and try to sob quietly. Maybe a hat with a veil... there is still time to decide. Goddamn emotions. I hate being a weepy weenie. Then I have only a few months to prepare for Kindergarten. Shit.

We keep trying to put up a new swing set, but have run in to a few road blocks. First it was the missing board and bolts. Got those and then it was the rain...good God the rain. It may still be too wet to put it up this weekend because we apparently are only allowed short pauses for commercial breaks this week. I know I shouldn't complain..we need the moisture blah blah blah. BUT WE HAVE SWING SET ON THE FLOOR OF THE GARAGE!!! C'mon!! There is no fun in that. Just torture for our poor children.

I am sure there is more to tell, but I must be off to bed.

P.S. The perfessor needs to start his own blog. This is my new ploy to get him going. Feel free to join my cause.

Congrats on the job!

As for Beloved's blog...I betcha Matt Cody could talk to Sabrina, the sexy girl. If she were to request it, Beloved would have to comply. Doesn't Sabrina always get what she wants?
