Thankfully, Other People Blog Too

Good morning everyone. Just thought I'd include a shot of my kitty exploring my kitchen/sewing table, since I still haven't finished my skirt tutorial yet. I had a bad stomach ache this weekend that turned out to be (I think) a kidney stone (most likely because I haven't been taking my baking soda....must replace moldy juice jug today!!). I didn't think it was a stone because this time the nausea/upset stomach came before the pain, but now the pain is here and I am consequently not working on my tiered skirt. I promise it will come soon!

In job news, woke up to two requests for an interview this morning, which made me both extremely happy and extremely anxious. Not because I'm worried about the this point, I've been on around 15+ interviews so I'm not so nervous about what I am going to say. No, I'm anxious about making a decision and if I am making the right one. I'm finding that the elementary level jobs I am being called about are either long term sub or part time. Part time lead teacher wouldn't be so hard to choose, but part time assistant pays less, which would mean getting a second job....not that I am opposed to that at all, but it means more job searching. I know, I know, life isn't easy, at least I'm getting my foot in the door, and there are far worse things to happen to people. I know I also shouldn't get myself so worked up about this, but as a worrier at heart, it all seems 10 times scarier in my head. I'm so used to full time lead teacher, even if it is in a toddler room, that it is scary to think of only having secured a part time position.

The more I read over what I just wrote, the less scary is actually seems. Things will be ok...they'll work out. And I should even have time to go back to school. *big, deep breath*

I came across two blog posts today that really cheered me up though, and I just had to share them. First, Sarah over at Yes, Teacher! shared this Jack Handey quote as part of her Mondays with Jack, and it really made me laugh: "I hope some animal never bores a hole in my head and lays its eggs in my brain, because later you might think you're having a good idea but it's just eggs hatching." Thanks, Sarah, for starting my morning out with a laugh!

Erika over at Oops! I Craft My Pants shared her latest craft...a wacky and unique frame idea: covering a picture frame with gum. I just love Erika's blog and this was another quirky post that just made my day. Check out the frame and Erika's fantastic blog here!

All I can say is, thank goodness for blogging today. :)


  1. I hope the interviews and the job decision goes well! Glad I could cheer up your Monday :)

  2. Ya know, you are such an inspiration. I am always amazed to read your posts because you're going through something so difficult but you always look on the bright side and brighten up my day! Thank you :)

  3. Yay for more interviews and job options!

  4. Thank you both. Heather, what a nice compliment! :) I don't always feel so optimistic (lol) but then I pull myself together.


Thank you so much for visiting! I love to hear feedback!
