Ok so now, instead of feeling depressed, I feel serious pressure to update for both of you reading!! :)
Just kidding, but thank you guys for reading and remembering me! I am also a slightly obsessive blog checker, so to feel like mine is being skipped over even by the obsessed ones -- how boring I felt!
So I have been asked to give an update on the house, but I'm going to have to disappoint! I did put an offer in, the sellers accepted, which means only that we are in contract. We have been waiting almost 4 weeks now for the sellers' bank to either accept the offer or make a counteroffer. Usually when you put an offer in on a house, the seller has 24 hours to respond. Well, in this case, the seller had 24 hours to respond, and their bank has 45 businees days! That's 2 months!!!
So even though I try to put the house in the back of my mind, I really do picture myself in it EVERY day. I am so ready for this change: new house (my very OWN), new neighborhood (ok I lived here a year ago but only for a few short months and I loved it!), no awful landlords to deal with, no security deposit, no more throwing my money in the trash every month, living 5 blocks from the school I want to teach at!!! A precious little yard for the girls... it's almost too good to be true. You are guaranteed an update the second I hear something.
I am so excited this week for two reasons! First, it is my Spring Break at my college, which means I have all my weeknights free to spend with the girls and to work on all these long-term projects that I haven't had time for. Secondly, I get to spend the ENTIRE day tomorrow in my classroom! So far I have really only been there in the mornings, then I come to work at 11. Well I am coming into work tomorrow at 3 so I will be with the class from 8:30 until the end of their day at 2:30. So exciting!
Now for the terrifying part of my week: Friday at 9am, I have my first lesson being observed by my supervisor. This date really snuck up on me. I haven't written that lesson yet -- I don't even know what it is going to be on! But hopefully my teacher and I will spend a lot of time going over this tomorrow. Please pray realllllly hard for me at 9am on Friday!
