Well, Josephine finished school (except math) last friday! I'm very proud of her and I am greatly relieved to be done! I'm enjoying our break from homeschooling, but am already anxious to start her 2nd grade stuff, and so is Josephine... just today she said, "I can't WAIT to get my new 2nd grade books! When will we get them?" After I told her it would be a week or two, she said "AWWW, man!!" something along those lines...

I've already begun putting away 1st grade stuff, and pulling out anything that can be used for 2nd grade and all of my preschool and Pre-K materials. Maureen seems excited to have more schoolwork materials that she can call hers. I've made space on our "school shelf" so Josephine and Maureen can each have their own shelf. I'll be spending the next several weeks going over and preparing lesson plans for both girls, and trying to figure out a schedule which will allow me to teach both of them! I'll probably only formally sit down w/ Maureen 3 days a week, more if time allows...

Well, most of you already know this, but I figured it's worth posting... Out of all the job searching Michael and I have both done, only ONE employer called us. Arby's called me about a week ago, I had an interview, and was hired! My first fast-food job!!! It will only be for the summer, thank goodness. We need the money, so I don't mind doing it. So far, it's been fine. My co-workers are nice and friendly and the work is pretty easy, just fast-paced at times. It's definitely an experience that will make me appreciate people who work in the fast-food business more!

Yesterday, the library called me about applying for a PT position in filing books... I will apply for that job too. That's a job I'd like to keep even after the summer is over... if I get it, that is.

Aw, you'd love being a page at the library. I really hope you get it. Of all my library jobs, shelving books was actually one of my favorites. It's harder physical work than you might think, but kind of relaxing in a mindless sort of way. You just show up, start shelving and putting things in order and then go home when your time is up with things just a bit more ordered than when you started. It's very satisfying... for strange ducks like me anyway.
