The truth is that if I really wanted to, I could almost put into words everything that I have been feeling of late... but I just don't want to. It is enough to have it all banging off the walls of my brain without spilling every minute detail out on paper. Plus, I'm not sure if you've ever noticed, but words so often, regardless of how eloquent or descriptive, rarely nail the emotion to a tee.
So the shortened version is that... as of yet I have no teaching position for the fall. It is frustrating being on the bottom rung, more so at 35 than 24.
... Jeremy went for the interview and has yet to hear news either way. However, from the interview he decided that the position is not one he would particularly enjoy. High profile, high stress. In the in term, current company is so broke that he couldn't get permission to buy a cake for one of his staff going on mat leave! Ironically, the GM retired last Friday, followed by a blowout party Saturday night for about 100 featuring prime rib and open bar!
... my sister is having a baby in 3 months. She has a LOT on her plate.
... my parents are taking a break and dad is moving out to live with me - this Saturday! This also means that my trip home will be completely monopolized by my mother, who is apparently in a polarizing mood.
... my marital status remains as always, undecided.
So in the locally famous words of my friend Marcel, it's nothing but a shit show! (God that makes me laugh). Just a whole lotta shitballs flying around!!
On the positive side of life - our taxes should be completed by the end of the week, our yard is being graded and landscaped starting tomorrow, my ticket home is bought, school is almost out and my feet will soon be in the Miramichi river.
