Last week I heard a rumor that my kid’s school was hiring a Title I tutor.
Brent and I debated the pros and cons of me applying for the job. We basically decided that my current job had more benefits and I would just stay put.
A couple of days later I had to go over to the school to take care of some PTA stuff. While I was there I ran into the principle. Without even realizing what I was doing I asked her about the job.
She responded that there were already several people interested in the job. However, if I was interested I should turn in my resume.
“What the heck is a resume?”
I went home and told Brent I needed a resume.
“Krissi, (said very much like Ricky use to say to Lucy) I thought WE decided against the job.”
“Tell me then WHY you need a resume?”
“I don’t know!? I just need to do this. I won’t get the job to many other people want the job I just need to try.”
I then sat down to create a resume.
Which was a whole new experience in reality. How do you break yourself down onto a single piece of paper?
Then I had to turn it in. Which made me feel strangely like a beggar.
“Please mum, please, please, can I have the job?”
What the heck was I doing this for I have a job. A job I like!
I felt sick to my stomach and wondered if I have a strange compulsion towards misery.
A couple days later my cell phone rang and the kid’s school name popped up. Shrugging I figured sense school hadn’t started it was a PTA call.
Except when I answered the call the school’s principle was on the line.
She doesn’t generally make PTA calls especially to the Reflection’s chick.
Then she offered me a job. An awesome job. Not the job I applied for but a job as the SEM teacher.
The SEM teacher teaches and runs the gifted and talented program at the school.
I am excited and after spending the last couple of days attending orientations and training it is a great fit more me. I’m so excited that I’m pretty dang annoying to be around.
Which I know isn’t that different than normally being around me but hey!
Anyway that is my big announcement. Points for Shar who hit the nail on the head. Though I have to say Willow's guess gave me a chuckle. I think I would be telling a story about Brent passing out if my news had been on the expecting front.
I went in and talked to my swim boss yesterday. I will be giving up my swim job during the day but will remain an employee filling in as a sub during the evening and teaching during the summer. I can’t imagine totally giving it up.
Meanwhile, I move forward and so far I am loving the path I’m on.

I have news. Exciting news. Well at least exciting news for me. However, I can’t share today. First I have to tie up some ends in the real world. Because it is the kind of news that people in your real life should hear before they read it in the virtual world. I know that I walk a very thin line of real world verses virtual world but believe it or not I try to make the real world come first. J
I try! I don’t always succeed but I try.
Instead of hearing my exciting news you get to read about my summer funk. Which I dealt with the same way I have dealt with many of my funks. I slipped into a good book and let the life in the story play out. Believe me it was much more entertaining than my real life.
I have literally spent the summer with my nose buried in a book. Reading no less than 50 books. Sad but true.
Among my favorite reads this summer was actually a reread. In about a weeks span I reread all the Harry Potter books. I was amazed at all the details I had forgotten and truly enjoyed reading them again. Rowling told a great story.
I tried to reread the Twilight books with no success. Either it has been to soon or once you know how it ends there is no suspense to pull you back into the story.
I am betting the latter. Please don’t send me hate mail. I’m just thinking that the books aren’t as great as I originally thought.
I can actually feel your hate right now.
It is kind of scary.
Okay, I take it back I LOVE TWILIGHT!
Please don’t hate me.
Anyway, my summer of reading is coming to a hault. Which has a lot to do with my news. J That I will be sharing soon, just not today.
Hey, look I am creating suspense. Maybe I can get a multi-million dollar book deal.
Huh… That’s just mean you should really think quieter

That is if you have thought about it. You might not have. Being as you have a life and it doesn't really center on my ramblings and me.
Sometimes I forget I’m not the center of the universe. ☺
Well I have been busy and the kids and the husband have been home and that has slowed me down a bit.
However, the truth of the mater is I have been enjoying a season of self-pity. I have walked around in a half funk and have not really wanted to deal.
Deal with life or my feelings, basically, I haven’t wanted to deal with anything.
Turns out that when I stop dealing I shut down. The more I shut down the more my life spirals in a direction that I wasn’t necessarily wanting to go.
Leading to a vicious cycle of more not wanting to deal and more spiraling.
Are you feeling dizzy yet?
I made myself a promise when I started this blog that I would be honest. Every moment of my life wouldn’t be fantastic and awesome. Also, I wouldn’t spend every day posting how non-fantastic and non-awesome my life is.
I wanted this blog to be positive but real.
Turns out it takes a lot of work for me to be positive all the time.
Yah, pretty much everyone who knows me in real life.
Well I have learned the fastest way to get myself out of a funk is to be BRAVE. This past week I was brave. I did something that took all the guts and courage that this girl has. You know what happened?
It worked. It totally worked and life is turning around and I feel the not wanting to deal parts of me starting to wake up. Which leaves me with only one last thing to say.
I’m back, I’m totally back.
Aren’t you lucky?
Yah, yah, I know the universe doesn’t center around me.
