Rain, Job & Sara Bareilles

It's raining today. It's strange to think that summer is really almost gone. I started the summer with J in Oklahoma, and now it almost feels like that was another lifetime.

I am so excited to see him for mid-tour leave! He's actually coming home sooner than expected, so he'll be home in less than 4 weeks! I am trying to plan something great for when he comes home, but I'm not telling him anything about it until we're closer to the date and know he'll be home/can swing it financially. I don't want to say too much because I don't want to jinx it...

Also, I start the new job next week. I'm working as an inclusion aide and I'm excited to get involved in something new. I've worked with children with special needs before but only in an informal way, or as the teacher in an inclusion classroom but my role was not specific to addressing those students who needed additional attention. You know when you walk into an interview and everything just clicks? It's like, yes, I am supposed to be here? Well, I definitely had that feeling immediately about the school so I'm pretty excited, and nervous. (I mean, it is a new job.)

Final random note: I'm into Sara Bareilles "King of Anything".


  1. I hope these next 4 weeks pass quickly!

    Good luck with the new job!

  2. Thanks so much!

    Love the new header, by the way. I laughed out loud when I noticed the pink pegasus. :)
