other bday goodies and other news

Over the weekend, I got a litte puffy that contained this: from Robyn. :) Thanks, sweetie! :) Oh, she also sent me a very cool Canadian pencil. :) Love the earrings. She knows I tried them on as soon as I got them out of their "Made in Canada" ziploc. ;)
Tomorrow,this lil munchkin will be braving a 5 hour drive to help me celebrate my bday this weekend! I finished all her bibs just in time. But I didn't get around to making a burp cloth for her as planned. I still have tonight and most of tomorrow though! So we'll see. I haven't really been knitting lately. I took a lil knitting break just because.
I've been MIA the last few days because I was busy getting ready to teach a model lesson at that school I subbed at a couple of times in the Fall. The model lesson went really well and I am supposed to go in for a 'final' interview. :) It was so validating to hear that the lesson was great, that I did a good job with the students, etc. I needed that. There may be a 1st grade position at this school and possibly a 2nd grade one. We'll see. Next Friday, I have an interview for a Kindergarten position. Fingers crossed that I get something full-time so we can move into either a bigger apt. or maybe a house and that way I'd have room for all my future yarn stash. ;)
My current job has just recently gotten crazier. One of the teachers will not be coming back (at least for the next six weeks). The poor thing has been in the hospital since last week with pneumonia. So, we have to cover her clients. Since I'm the only other teacher that goes to the school that she and I both go to during the week, I've been asked to cover her hours. So I'll be adding an additional 6 hours of work to my current work-load. Sure it'll be good money but what about my sanity???? It's only going to be for the next 7 weeks (which is when school will be over). I'm going to start counting down until June 21st!!!!!!
