Rough Week Followed By A Much Better One
That was a rough week. Then on Thursday I had an interview for before and after school care at our local YMCA. I was offered the job and accepted it that night. I still plan on applying for teaching jobs, but this is part of the back up plan. It doesn't start until next school year. I am hoping that I can get back in as a part-time instructional aide too. Then I could work both jobs. So, Friday morning I decided to ask the woman who is hiring me if she knows if they need any help with their summer camp program. She mentioned that they were looking for a camp counselor substitute. She forwarded on my information and another woman contacted me while I was at work on Friday. After playing phone tag I finally talked to her yesterday and it sounds like they are going to need me a lot. Tomorrow is the last day of school for the kids (half day) and then I am done with that job. After work I'm going to go fill out paperwork at the YMCA to be officially hired.The rest of the week I will be working at the YMCA Specialty Camp teaching Cooking from 8:30-3:30. This is funny because I am not much of a cook. :)
One more bit of good news which we aren't sure how it's going to pan out. Mike has an interview with the CEO tomorrow for a Building Maintenance position. My father is in charge of building maintenance at this large facility. He plans on retiring in a couple years, so he wants to get my hubby in to train him to take over for him. I know Mike wants to be an electrician, but we can't do multiple years of him being laid off. He is open to this new job, but it is an hour from home. On the bright side he can drive 25 minutes to my parents house and my dad can drive the rest of the way. When I worked for this company before I left for student teaching, I did this for 8 years, so it is doable. My mom also works there, so we would drive together.
So, yes....a crazy week and a half of ups and downs. I am not really sure how to feel about getting my period. I have actually handled it very well this week. We are going to take a break and just try on our own for awhile. I'm not sure when we'll seek help again, but I am sort of looking forward to not having to give myself shots and drive to the clinic every other day.
I hope everyone's having a great weekend!
