From week to week this could start sounding like same stuff different day if I wasn't living with purpose. The other day I completed my application to return to my former school district. I had spoken to a former principal who said she hadn't heard of any openings so I wasn't expecting much right away. Surprisingly enough, three days later I got a call from personnel asking if I was available for this school year or if I was wanting to wait until the fall. I was driving in my car at the time (no lectures please) and would have hit the Interstate at the moment if she said we have a position for you right now. Fortunately, I didn't have to drive back to Texas that day. Instead, I have a job interview over the phone on Tuesday. Yay! Things are moving in the right direction. I am very excited.

The rest of the week was mostly the same stuff. I am still working out at the gym as often as possible. I bought some Glucosamine/Chondroitine to help with my joint damage. Hopefully that will eventually ease the pain I feel daily. (I fell on my kneecap when I was pregnant with my youngest.) There is no surgery for my condition at this point. I was able to exercise for an hour and a half on Friday which I promptly rewarded with a night out with friends.

Monday, James was invited to attend a hip hop class with a classmate. I sneaked a video peek.

Thursday, I took the evening off to take Caitlin to curriculum night to research more about the remaining high school years coursework. She will be focusing on art and fashion design. :-) Here is her latest piece of work for school.
My friend "A" and I went for martinis after work and then met her husband for dinner. It has been a long time since I have enjoyed the company of "grown ups." I will miss these people when I move back to Texas, but I hear they have a hankering for some Texas living as well, so there is always hope.

Thursday and Saturday, I spent with the pens and water colors.

 Wishing for some warmer weather.

Her hair is made of tissue paper and newspaper.

This week, I will be praying for more job interviews or at least for the interview I have on Tuesday to be successful.
