Stuttering Shell: sunday night brain dump.

sunday night brain dump.

i'm thinking i should do this on the regular.  i did it last sunday & it helped clear my head.

okay, here we go...

i start working tomorrow.  i haven't worked since i quit my previous job in august of last year.  i'm excited, but i'm also nervous.  it's only temporary, but the timing couldn't be better {or worse}.  i'll be working full-time for the entire month of april and the first week of may.  the semester ends this month.  finals are the first week of may.  ugh.

while this new job will be nice, what i'm going to miss most is all of the free time i had.  free time that i should have used a bit more wisely on school-related things instead of watching 90210 reruns, stalking crowdtap, coffee-ing with these gals & writing this blog post.  but, i'm not going to complain.  i'm certainly jumping at the chance to earn a decent, steady income for one month and this opportunity could open the door for more {albeit temporary} opportunities in the future.

my mom is coming to live with us for the rest of the month - kinda, sorta.  she's going to give us a hand with the kids so we don't have to scramble for temporary childcare.  seriously, she is a lifesaver!

spring break - for the kids - is in just a couple of weeks and they will be spending that time with my parents at their house.  i'm looking forward to the break.  i'm sure they are, too.  trust me, at ages 7 & 10, they do nothing but bicker and fight all.the.time.  and, quite personally, i'm tired of listening to my son whine.  i could also do without seeing my daughter's eyes roll for a few days, too.

i'm kicking off the first saturday of the kids' spring break by attending sertoma's spring fever with adam & a bunch of our friends.  six hours of drinking...ooh, lawdy!

i had my first etsy shop inquiry.  no sale yet, but still...this is exciting!

i'm still pining away for a new laptop...what else is new?!

did i mention that mondays & tuesdays are going to be my hell days?  well, tuesdays won't be as bad as mondays.  i will go from work to class on both afternoons.  in fact, i'll be late for class for the rest of the semester thanks to this job.  on monday nights, i don't get out of my second class until 9:50pm.  someone find me a coffee i.v. drip now, please.

in a little more than three weeks i'll be jetting off for california.  my cousin is getting married.  the reception is at a vineyard.  i die.  but, my trip could be cut short if i have to come back for training.  what?  training?  yes, training.  i had a telephone interview on friday for a summer job.  i'll know in two weeks if i've been awarded the position.  if i get the job, there is a mandatory training sesh on may 1st in d.c., so my cali vacay could potentially be cut short...drastically short.  keep your fingers crossed,  y'all: either for me landing this job or for me being able to go to disneyland with my kids.

there's more, but i have a presentation to work on.  it's due tuesday, but since my days will be committed to something else now, i have to get crackin'...tonight.  ugh.

Hey girl!!! Thanks so much for following along with me - I'm having so much fun doing this thing ;) Looks like your schedule is crazy for the next month or so but hopefully I can tag along with Lis and meet up with ya'll for coffee or something sometime soon. Let me know if you have any questions about the composting (we love it) and have a great week:)

Good luck at the new job today!!!!
I know it's going to be a crazy couple weeks with the semester ending... take a deep breath, one day at a time. :) I have to tell myself that.
Crossing my fingers for you that you can stay in California and your trip doesn't get cut short!
