(No subject)

I'm boring. I couldn't think of a good subject for today's post. Any suggestions?

I mentioned I dislike making decisions. For those of you that do not know, I quit my preschool teaching job earlier this summer. I loved my students and my coteachers, but I had a really hard time getting along with the director. We spoke about some of the issues and I felt like we weren't getting anywhere. Since then, I have struggled with "guilt" of sorts - as a Christian, shouldn't I be able to get along with her? I have been reminding myself that we instructed to live at peace with everyone ("If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone" Romans 12:18). Ryan and I talked and prayed and talked and prayed about it and decided it was time for me to work somewhere else.

Here is where the decision comes in. I worked for Sycamore this summer doing various office stuff and I have loved it. Thursday I was offered a job to work full-time at Sycamore. While I am excited, I am also confused. I had originally decided to substitute teach in the fall and continue to work part-time at Sycamore (1 - 2 days a week), with the hopes of getting a contracted teaching position with FCPS in January. What do I do, what do I do? There are many enticing benefits to working at Sycamore, but I can't say it's what I want to do. (I would be doing different tasks - working on proposals, etc. - not the other stuff I have been doing so far.) *sigh*

Wheel of Fortune tryouts were a flop on Saturday. Everybody filled out an application that went into a big barrel. Names were randomly drawn out but mine was never picked. :( The cheesey host (not Pat Sajak, although he is pretty cheesey) said all applications are sorted through, even those not drawn, for an opportunity for final auditions. Maybe I'll still make it.

In other news, my mom is having some job issues. It looks like the newspaper is up for sale and the outlook isn't good. Please pray for her and for all those involved. Thanks!

Crazy day

Aren't all days crazy days?

After much encouragement from my faraway friends, I, too, have decided to create a blog (b-log). I'm positive that most days I will be boring as I am not creatively witty like my Marte. Hi, Marte, by the way! :)

Today was a crazy day at work. We have this hugely-important grand opening ceremony coming up in three weeks and so I'm busy with that. Yes, I am again planning events. How did I get back into it, you ask? I dunno. But I enjoy it. I have training for substitute teaching on Monday and then I will sub three to four days a week and continue to work at the office one day a week.

High point for today: it's been four months today since Ryan's accident. God is so good to us.

Low point: getting a $35 parking ticket. My first parking ticket ever. And it was my fault.

Superhigh point: Wheel of Fortune tryouts are in Baltimore on Saturday! Yipee! I'll let you know how I do, since I'm sure you'll be waiting on pins and needles to know. :)
