krikketgirl: (School Mean Kitteh)
So I balanced my bank account with our money program today. Chris kept making comments about how I ought to. I like to take my time. I hadn't balanced it since November. Ahem.

The thing that I dislike the most about school and work combined (not to mention all the other craziness) is that I really miss the days where a day off school or off work meant just that: a day off. Now, with staggered breaks (because of course my spring break for school is not the same as my spring break for work) and a lot of work, every "day off" is just an opportunity to work to get ahead to save myself some grief later on. I hate the feeling like if I read a book or goof off with the kids I'm doing something barely permissible.

In other news, I have been accepted to the Ambassador Bible Center for this fall. ABC is located at our church's home office, so I can ride in to work with Chris--bliss!--and even get to have lunch with him maybe. I am super excited. I figure that in a time of major transition, it can't be a bad idea to spend 9 months in the Word. And that gives me some time to settle down and figure out what the next steps are.

Here's the thing: I really, really hope the next steps after that involve a library. I am surprised at the panic feeling I get when I think about not working in a library for the first time in over a decade.

krikketgirl: (Er?)
In our next house--wherever that may be--I hope that we can have a bedroom that is better-lit. This would improve not just my life, but others' lives as well: for example, no longer would I be appearing in public wearing a hot-pink top accented by a scarf that I was sure featured pink, but actually is black, white, and bright orange.

And speaking of scarves, I rarely wear them (except the knitted ones you wear with a coat, you know). So it's been a constant struggle today to keep from dipping this thing in tea, in melted cheese, in salsa. I have managed so far, however, and I also was able to keep from stapling myself to book fair handouts. So I'm feeling fairly accomplished.
