marching ahead

Well, I gotta say I passed up quite a few temptations today, and only spent money at the grocery store. I bought fresh produce this afternoon, and plan on making a delish salad to go w/ the cheap pizza for dinner. The kids will be thrilled, and I'll have a chance to unwind before hubby gets home super late tonight. The zoo was fun, a bit congested at the entrance, but I had no problems on our adventure. The sling is a great tool to have, saved my arms for sure! Had a picnic lunch w/ some people who I haven't seen very often in the past couple of years, definitely felt like I had more in common w/ them now as we all have more than one child, even though I now had the youngest one among us. I definitely missed the mom's group, realize how important it was to my sanity. Now I'm pondering running for a club position-how this will factor in if/when I get a job I don't know, but we'll see.

In other news, I have an interview w/ the University of Phoeniz (satellite college) next Friday evening, thanks in part to L's husband telling me about his own experience teaching at another college. I never would have considered looking into teaching positions, but thought it couldn't hurt to try. I'm super nervous, having this type of part time job would be a major asset, not only to my sense of self, but to our financial plans too. I have to do a mock presentation-and another person gave me the idea of incorporating my senior project into it, so that will not only save me time, but really show that I know my stuff.

Congrats on the interview!!! That is great news!! I hope that something good comes out of it for you!!! This may be just the kind of part-time job you've been looking for. I wish you tons of luck!!!

Good job resisting temptations. I know how hard it is sometimes to do that. And it sounds like you had a great time with your friends. Being with good friends always picks me up and makes me feel happy!!
