I don't want to work . . .

. . . I wanna bang on the drum all day!

Things this week have been kinda hectic. Mostly because I have no focus and am SO ready for a vacation. We leave next Saturday for a conference for a week, then we come back for about 4 days and we're off to WI. We didn't get to go on vacation last year, and now I am ready.

I have been working on becoming a respite provider, and today I will start with a family. I actually know this child from the private work I did in grad school, but it is the first official time I will be doing this with her. She is good, and should be a fun time.

I got the thanks but no thanks letter from the big university I interviewed with. I am really ok with it, since it would have been a huge decision of what to do on a lot of levels if they had actually offered me the job. I did interview at a school for children with cerebral palsy, and that interview went really well. For the first time in a while, when I saw those kids I got really excited. Like those are the kinds of kids and place that I would like to be. There are some issues that would need to be addressed if they offered me that position--pay, the fact that they want someone part time for a little while then move to full time, etc. They were super nice folks, and I look forward to being called back for a second interview.

Therapy continues to go well-as well as getting a mental ass kicking can go. But I think it has been good. I am looking forward to a break, while trying not to shut down with one more week to go.

Well, I am off to walk to dog and get ready for my day. Hope all is well in your corners!

Beans, good luck on the interview. I hope you find a job that make your glow! And perhaps working with a different population than you have will be a refresher for you.

Good luck, too, on the respite care. It could be an exciting, fun experience! And a challenge!
