"I Open at the Close"

Thanks to everyone that offered a kind word from my bummer post last week. I'm a constant work in progress. It's a fact.

This week I have some exciting stuffs going on in Penny Lane. I have been waiting and looking for the right position to open up in the school system for some time now. Aside from creepy men making off-collar remarks to me I am not happy in my company any longer. It's been a long time building up and boiling over.


I have interviewed once before for a special education position at the school my husband works. A long time county employee, who was overlooked prior, was given the position. There is something in the works currently for a similar position. Last week I went to the Board of Ed to take a test and I was one of 25 people there. There was a mini-interview afterwards. They made me wait and be the very last interviewed. I was slightly peeved at being last called but after I sat down found out why. I was the highest scored in the class. I "blew them away" they said. "Made it look SO easy" they also said.

I don't want to give too much away so I will just say that other things are in the works and maybe/hopefully I will have some good news soon to share.




In completely unrelated, but equally exciting news:


Today is the release date of Lego Harry Potter Years 1-4. I have been waiting for this game for about a year now! Excited to stop by my electronics store and purchase this one tonight!

That is very cool Penny. I don't think I've ever scored highest on anything. I always wanted to be a teacher - but it just didn't pan out. Now I'd have to go back and get re-certified all over again, blah blah blah. I'm too lazy. But I always most enjoyed working in small groups or one on one with the kids who needed extra help - or a different perspective to things in order to learn. So needless to say I would be really excited to hear about your journey if things go as hoped.

Hey honey! Fabulous to hear of all the possibilities opening up for you. Sorry I never commented on your other post - I have been sporadic at best lately. I have faith in you though. You are such a light in the dark that I don't doubt you will soon find your way.

Sending you only the best wishes.

Yay, glad to hear that things are on the up, hope the interview brings good things; well done on acing the test. Also nice to see that Harry Potter's finally getting a decent computer game (my niece played some of the film tie-in games, but the Lego one sounds a lot more fun).
