Life is good!

There are things happening here, let me tell you!!! Remember this post?? Well let me fill you in....

I got a job. A real job! I haven't worked for anybody but me in 4 years! I'm kinda trippin. So, I've been trying to get in with the local school district here for a few years now and have applied several times for several different positions. After 2 tries I finally got the first place seat for the position I wanted. Yeah me! Well as it goes of course the budget cuts happened here in California and the district went on a hiring freeze and I was back at square one. Bummed! Well just a few weeks ago I got a call asking if I was still interested in a part-time position. Are you kidding, YEAH I'm interested!! Well it's a little less then part-time, like 12 hours a week. BUT! I'm in the door, big feet, big mouth and all!

SOOO the cooler part of this is....it's at Jakes school!!!!! I'm freaking out here! Don't get me wrong, it's a good freakout! I did ask Jake before I accepted the position if he would be okay with me being there and his reaction was priceless...

Me - So I've got a surprise for you.
J - What?
Me - I got the job at your school.
J - WOW!! That is so cool mom! Now when I'm doing Library Aide I can come in and say hi to you and we can wave at each other from the windows! When do you start?
Me - Cool! I thought you might freak out. Are you sure you're okay with your mom working at YOUR school? If you're uncomfortable let me know and I wont take it.
J - Are you kidding!?!? You have to take it! Congratulations mom! What's for dinner?

So there it is! I'm so supppppper excited! It's going to be a little crazy around here for a bit, but it ain't nothing I can't handle. I should be starting in the next few weeks. And yup, I plan on keeping all my houses until I'm offered a 20 hour position. Crazy I know. AND on top of this....I have also started selling children's books to boot! Yeah I know I'm crazy, but hey I've been that way since I was born.

With that being said, I will not be doing New Music Mondays anymore but instead highlighting a new book on Monday's. I'm really excited about joining the Barefoot team and have been working hard getting geared up with training and setting up my "store". I'm sure most of you are familiar with Motherbridge of Love, it is one of Barefoots top selling books. So drop by on Monday for the first book showing! Or even better, stop by my website and pick up a few books for your children's bookshelves!

Come by on Monday for some fun and don't forget....come barefoot! ;)
