Job opportunity

I applied for a job at Houston Secondary. It is only for first sememster and is only 3 of 4 classes but it is continuing. The best part is that it is teaching Literature 12, Writing 12, and Social Studies 10 - all subjects I love to teach. Hopefully my friend TC will let me rape and pillage her Lit. resources - LOL

Hillary Duff, here we come

Yep, I did talk myself into it. Got the concert tickets and plane tickets this morning. Used my Air Miles for the flights so the trip is just costing us the airport fees and taxes and the concert tickets. I am going to surprise Arden with the concert. I will let her think we are just going to see Aaron in Edmonton. It feels so good to be at a point in our lives where we can do this kind of thing for our daughter.

Another trip?

OK, so I know I am already jamming so much into this summer but this evening, while watching family channel with Arden, a promo came on for a Hillary Duff concert tour. Now don't laugh, I'm not the fan, but Arden is. This wouldn't be tempting except she is in Edmonton on August 1st and Aaron is already going to be there supervising the Nationals. I started looking into it and I could use my Air Miles to get us there and we could stay with Aaron because the other supervisor is a woman so they will each have their own room. The other thing that makes this so tempting is that we could be together on August 2nd, which is our 10th Anniversary and my 39th (really!) birthday. I was thinking we could surprise Aaron too but if we want to stay in his hotel I think we may have to tell him. It might mean that Arden and I have to go to Vernon to see my dad right at the beginning of July but that wouldn't be so bad. Hmmmmm.... sounds like I have talked myself into it.

Goal accomplished!

Yep, actually got the ceiling painted and two coats of primer on the walls. We even installed the ceiling light fixtures - they look awesome. I am off to put on the first coat of paint - Cherry Cobbler! It is such a cool colour. We may even be in our bedroom before September - LOL!!! I want it done before July so I can work on my craft room while Aaron is away!

Great to see our friends

Our weekend in Hope was awesome. It was so great to see everyone and be a part of the graduation festivities. It made me realize how much I really missed them all this year. The dresses at Prom were beautiful. There wasn't one dress where I thought "What was she thinking?" Rachel C's, Rachel T's, and Evelyn's were my favourites mostly because they were so transforming from their regular clothing. Sherina and Danielle really stood out as well, but, as I said, I thought they were all so beautiful.

Not flooding here significantly, yet. I still think it won't flood. They have been so proactive that all of their preparations and work are actually holding back the water. The two big diggers down by the river hauling out the debris before it gets to the bridge are quite impressive.

Weekend goal: to get the ceiling and 2 coats of primer done in the bedroom!
