Random on a Sunday

*I am about to finish my summer school teaching stint, and when it is done, I am officically jobless. I am still trying HARD to find a position for this school year. No luck so far. It is making us take a hard look at things, and we are trying to figure out our next step.

*With my job situation up in the air, The Diva finished up at the home daycare she had been attending since we moved to Vermont. She'll be hanging with me until I find a job, and then we will find her a preschool for her to attend. I can't believe she only has one more year before kindergarten. Time just slips right by us. Sometimes I try to cradle her in my arms like I did when she was a newborn, but it's super awkward. She hasn't grown out of general cuddling yet, for which I am grateful. I don't know what I will do when she stops climbing into my lap, throwing her arms around me and laying her head on my shoulder.

*I found out yesterday that my 1st grade boyfriend was killed in a car accident. We were good friends through elementary and middle school, lived down the street from me, stole his moms earrings to give me as a gift (my mom made me return them). A lot of my younger day memories include him. I haven't seen or spoken to him in years, but my heart goes out to his family.

Friday night, we had a family date night. We did dinner at Pizzeria Uno, and went bowling. Bowling is kind of becoming our family "thing". We've gone twice. But seriously, we enjoyed ourselves both times and plan to keep bowling a part of our family fun. I am a terrible, terrible bowler. More than once, a stranger has felt the need to come over from their lane to try to help me with my lame skills. That hasn't happened since I met D, but I'm still lousy. D likes to laugh at me, and Diva actually beat me (without bumpers) the first time we went bowling as a family. I am proud to say I actually beat my darling husband and daughter on Friday night! Go me!

I am working on a grocery list, so I am hoping to get meal plan Monday up and running again. I hope all is well in your worlds, and here's to a great week ahead!

Hey there,

I've been missing you and hoping everything is going well. It must be scary not knowing what's coming, but maybe it's like a bit of an adventure, too? That's how I'd try to look at it.

At least you're getting in lots of snuggles with The Diva. Mad was in a snuggly mood for about a week, but she's moved past it (and into a lovely whiney/yelling phase that we're all working hard to get through).

Even though you haven't seen that young man for years, I can see how the loss would affect a person. At least you have all those memories (of your early life of crime, lol).

I can't even comment on bowling. There are some things I'm really bad at (like pool), but still love to do. Then there's bowling. Ugh!

Good to hear from you again!
