Well, I didn’t get the Childr*n’s job which I guess is just as well, but ack! I want to be wanted! And I turned down the U of MD job before they had a chance to offer it to me. So, I’m onto the fourth round of thinking about what to do. I still do want a job that doesn’t impact the family bit too much for too long, we’ll see. I asked Vince what he thought about me working nights – if he’d be alright with less support from me and maybe I’d need more support from him (I just signed him up for driving lessons with the thinking that I’ll need him to pick Edda up every once in a while when we are in a bind) – and he said, don’t worry about me, but I’m sure you are going to be grouchy all the time. Out of the mouth of babes. All this tells me is that I’m way better at finding engineering jobs than I am at finding nursing jobs. Engineering jobs – I bat 1000 once I get to the interview. Nursing jobs – I bat a big fat zero once I get to the interview.
Jeremy’s in Philly this weekend visiting Vidya. We are trying to go every few weeks.
He took my engagement ring to see our jeweler who is in Philly. A tiny diamond has fallen out, we are hoping to get it replaced with a ruby for Ruby. Our jeweler is Jeremy’s college friend Caleb who went and became a jeweler after he finished school. We get all our jewelry from him! lol. Pretty much just the engagement ring and wedding rings – and one extra ring when we had more money and fewer children.
He took his bike, hoping to bike around a bit. I’m not sure if he’s going to feel like he’ll be able to leave Vidya alone for long (to either bike or get the ring fixed).
Jeremy left Friday am and will be back Sunday PM. Friday PM found me driving Vince and Calvin to see Ben in Woodbine. Thank you Soojung for hosting a sleepover and having so much good food! I don’t know what I was thinking, but all day I imagined taking the boys and dropping them off and turning around and going home and eating with just me and Edda, but as I was driving there, I was like – I could have my own sleepover and hang out with Soojung all night! I didn’t hang out all night, we chatted until almost 10 and then Edda was getting impatient and wanted to head home.
The boys are so big, we’ve been friends for a long time now.
The Rett siblings. I wouldn’t have guessed that they get along pretty well after all these years. Hopefully they can lean against each other as we all get older.
