Send Good Thoughts

Well, yesterday was my day off. In less than 2 weeks, Thursdays will cease to be my day off since I won't be working for Dr. anymore (yay!), so I am left to wonder: Will I have a day off? If I work a 5 day work week, I won't since I still want to work at the restaurant. Or, will I have 5 days off? Wonder if I'll have a job...

Since Thursdays are my only day off, it is usually a running around day, unless I rebel and refuse to get dressed and make Josh do all the running. I've been known to do this, but usually it is a family event. Anyway, when we were finally getting around-say 11:00 ish, my cell phone rings. I never answer my phone. I don't like it, especially since we don't have very good reception at home. So, Josh answers my phone for me. He gave the lady the standard, "She's not available right now." But this was different-I had a call from a school, wanting to interview me! Wow. That was quick, and extremely good timing since I wouldn't be able to interview any other day.

So, I rushed to get my resume together and find some clothes that were presentable. (I will miss wearing scrubs everyday-never having to decide what to wear.) I then read over my "why I want to teach" and "philosophy of education" and the like. I was almost in tears- re-reading my journals from when I was teaching, thinking about all the students, getting excited about lesson plans.

I think the interview went quite well. I can never tell, though. It is for a 2nd grade class, which is a lot younger than I've ever full-time taught. It'll be interesting. I am excited that I got so excited when I was preparing. I hope I get the job, not because I need a job (even though I really do!), but because I was excited about it. I haven't been excited about any of the other jobs for which I've applied (such as sales and call center etc).

So, anyway, send your good thoughts my way and the way of the principal. It would be just too perfect if it worked out, and that would be a good thing.
