I've been going to professional development workshops all week long and I've met some of the nicest people in the world. I only got to meet two people who teach at my new school, but I've been "adopted" by some wonderful women at Howard Elementary. They are the coolest chicks ever! I learned lots of neat stuff and can't wait to try it out in my classroom. I even won a copy of the book written by the author of today's workshop. AND I have the opportunity to take part in a program for social studies which would end with a trip to Washington, D.C. next June. Oh, and did I mention that the trip is FREE?
Today after class I went to look at a few more houses. One we'd already seen and I want to move in tomorrow. One was awesome--right across the street from the lake. You can look out any window on the front of the house and see water!--and the rest were just so-so. As we were leaving the last house my realtor said, "So do you think you can fit this sign in your trunk?"
Me: Uh, what sign?
Him: The "Open House" sign.
Me: Oh! Are you having one of those?
Me: Okay, great! When?
Me: Sunday? As in two days from now, Sunday?
Him: Yes, because next Sunday is a holiday weekend. Didn't I tell you ?
So, I'll be cleaning the house until it's super-duper shiny tomorrow because I have to teach Sunday school that morning. AND we have to go to a party for Dan's boss because she's leaving the company, so I'll have to clean very early tomorrow. Darn it, I was really hoping to sleep in Saturday morning after getting up at six every day this week--not that I'd be able to do that with two kids and a dog, but a girl can dream, right?-- but now I'll have to clean.
But at least someone will FINALLY be coming to see my house. At least they better! I think I'll assign Grace to stake-out duty so she can tell me who comes over. Pay no attention to the redhead across the street with the binoculars, folks!
