I most enjoy reading things with pictures. Not because I can’t read (hello! I taught first grade and taught others how to read!), but I love being able to look at beautiful things. So it pains me to say this post will not have pictures. Not because I don’t have any, but because I can’t access them. Read on and you’ll find out why.
The past month has been a whirlwind of emotion. Here is a sample of what has happened:
*I was offered a new position closer to home
*I resigned from my teaching position
*We had new floors installed
*We attended six (count ’em six) graduation parties in one afternoon
*I packed up all of my school things from school and moved them home
*I said goodbye to friends I made in the past two years
*I turned in my Mac (it was a school computer)
It probably doesn’t look like a whole lot in terms of items. But when you look at it from an emotional stand point…it is/was a lot.
So now I’m at home not twiddling my thumbs. In fact I’m crossing off a few things on my list this week. Like taking down our bedroom doors, priming them, and then later painting them. I will be having meals with some good friends. Adam and I will be buying carpet and setting up a time for installation. Not to mention I will be trying not to feel bad when I relax and catch up on some reading. Then, the following week, I will be starting my new job. Talk about a school house shake up!
But, wait. Isn’t this blog about our house? It is. Don’t worry. I just needed to vent. Again. So what is on our list of things to do this Summer?
*Sand and paint bedroom doors
*Sand and paint closet doors
*Move spare bedroom downstairs
*Garden, garden, garden (vegetable and flower)
*Buy a new rug for the dining room
*Have carpet installed
It doesn’t seem like a lot right now, but I’m sure as the summer progresses, I’ll be bustin’ my rear to get the list done before school starts.
So what has been causing a “shake up” for you? Any new job placements? House projects?
