This has been an eventful week. School is starting around the country and it was no exception in the Krause house. My oldest, Zachary, started 3rd grade and my baby, Nicky, had his very first day of school ever on Monday. It was hard on me, standing at the door to the Kindergarten class as he walked away, never to look back or give me a hug. I’m sure many a parent knows exactly the feeling I’m talking about. The kids being in school has been good for me too, though. Even though it’s only been two days, I think it’s been my most productive two days of my entire life.
I’ve been looking for a job and yesterday, I finally got a legitimate interview for a job I REALLY want. I had to do a test and turned it in today. Not more than ten minutes later, I got called from the HR woman and told they want to do a Skype interview (the position is remote). I’m stoked. The interview isn’t until next Thursday (thanks, PAX), but I feel good about my chances of getting this job. Did I mention I REALLY want it?
As if that wasn’t enough - the new routine is great for me. My husband takes me and the kids to the school and drops us off, then goes off to work. I take Nicky to his classroom, tear up a little as I realize he’s growing up, then jog/walk home. The exercise hurts like hell, but I feel so good every day I do it. I know, it’s only been two days, but you have no idea how freakin’ lazy I am. Then after milling around, eating breakfast, playing some games and procrastinating, I get down to do some work. Yesterday, it was updating The Bowling Frame. Today, it was getting the test done. Tomorrow, I’m thinking of working on my novel. All in all, it’s been very good for me.
Big Brother’s on tomorrow night. I’m very excited to see how everything pans out. So far, Rachel fans have to be pretty happy. Jeff is HoH and he’s not going to put Rachel up no matter what. He put Kalia and Porche up, but I think his real target is Danielle. I really want Danielle to go to jury house this week. And I want Rachel to win the first HoH for the speed week coming up on Thursday - then I don’t care who wins the second, as long as they won’t put Rachel up. Go Rachel!
That’s about all I can think to ramble about right now. Anyone else got a rambling?
