Things are picking up speed
Well, let's see if I can catch things up. We met with the Realtor on Tuesday, 22nd, and worked out a timeline. The house needs to get on the market in April. Yikes!!! It's the end of March. She wants the house cleared out, painted, and looking all bright and shiny. Oh my god!!! Do you know how much work we have in front of us? So it has begun. We've started clearing out under the house, packing up things we are going to take with us, get things set aside for a garage sale on the 2nd. OMG!!!! There is so much to do and when I have a lot to do I get paralyzed. I've been able to avoid that so far by just doing something. I'm not tackling any one thing in order but I'm doing things. I packed up some of my computer room, I've set aside some stuff for the garage sale, today I started packing up our knick-knacks from the living room. So no one room is finished, but progress is being made in every room. I figure if I just manage to get something done everyday, eventually it will not be overwhelming and I will get it all done.
On the job front, I never heard from the school who I interviewed with last week. He said he would get back to me by Monday and I've heard nothing. I tried to call and there was no answer. It really bothered me and I was kind of freaking out on Wednesday, totally freaking out. I could not settle on anything and all I could think about was this job, and getting a job, and what if I didn't get a job, and on and on and on....... Then Thursday morning, I had a great interview with the Tolleson high school principal and vice principal. It was really, really good. In fact, they wanted to know if I was in a position to make a commitment now; I thought that was a good sign. They will be checking references on Monday and then will get back to me. I have a good feeling about this one. I can also lay out a 1,000 reasons why this one would be better than the other one but that is just my mind justifying things. So I think that I need to be open to any place and every place will have its positives and negatives, so I'm not going to go into that. I'm just going to look up an area and see if it looks like a place I'd like to live. I can't be terribly choosy because I don't really know about all the different places. After I get there and we learn the areas, I may have different opinions but for now, I will just accept what comes along.
Other schools are also contacting my references, which I find very strange because they haven't actually spoken to me. Wouldn't you want to talk to me first? And wouldn't my references say really good things about me otherwise I would not use them as references??? This whole thing is bizarre. I'm not going to use someone who would say bad things about me as a reference..... I don't know, but they are contacting my references first and not talking to me. Interesting approach. But, whatever. I know something will come along.
Today was another story completely. I did a couple of boxes packed but I spent the majority of the day laying on the couch. Napping. Ugh. I feel bad because I didn't do much, but I really shouldn't. I've been busting my butt all week in spite of being on break. So taking one day to laze around and do nothing is not so bad. Jeez, it is spring break. So I'm not going to feel bad or beat myself up about it. I took a rest day and that is okay. I will kick it back up this weekend and get more done. Nuff said.
