I truly am ashamed of how long it's been since I posted, my blog is like the Harkey's, Yikes! I do have a reason though, we don't have Internet and I'm now working two jobs and about 50 hours a week between them, so I'm tired and grumpy when I get home, and you don't want me to post when I'm in that mood.
I'm still chugging along at my internship, really enjoying it when I have stuff to do, and I'm also teaching Pre-K at La Petite day care. It is an adventure. I do my internship in the mornings and teach in the afternoons. Working at a day care has made me really glad I have a degree, it's entertaining and better than fast-food or something like that, but not what I want to do forever.

I applied for a job with social services and I got a call Friday afternoon that my application made it through HR and they'll call me next week about an interview, it would be great to get this job, I'd only work 40 hours a week and be on salary, I'll keep you posted. The only downer is that if I get this job with DSS I'd have to work full time at my internship so I could finish it faster and start this job in a few weeks, which means I'd have to quit at La Petite without giving them any notice. I need some advise here, I don't know whether to mention this job I applied for to my boss at La Petite so that she knows what's going on, or to wait and see if I get it, so that if I don't she doesn't know that I considered quitting. What do you think reader?

I wish I had more interesting things to write, but I just work a lot and drink beer when I get home. I still miss everyone so much and we're waiting for Stu to decide when he's coming to visit (hint).

I'll leave you with a few of my favorite quotes from my four year olds.
-TJ coming out of the bathroom after nap time and looking down at his pants, "aw man, I peed on myself".
-Ryan pulls down his pants to show me that he's wearing his first pain of boxers and sticks his little butt my way and shouts, "it's McQueen!" (the main character from the movie cars).

Yo, I'm coming already! I'm just waiting on Mr. Miller to definitively tell me if he's in or not (you know how those artsy types can be). Plan on the 1st week of December sometime. Does that work ok for you guys?

Also, I say you just leave your current job if need be. It's not as though you maliciously withheld from them your leaving, and you can explain the you had this all happen to you so quickly with the new job I mean. Plus, it's just a fact of life that employers have to live with: People move on. Don't feel bad and do what you have to do.
