"EXHAUSTED...party of 1..."

Wow....this weekend felt like it last FOREVER yet I was so busy the whole time! We went to Tyler for the weekend to see our families and get some things done.

I attended a job fair all day on Saturday for teaching jobs in the independent school district there. I really didn't know what to expect since I had never been to one before. Ummm...holy cow! I felt like I was in RUSH all over again! I spent the first two hours walking from table to table, having mini-interviews, passing out resumes, and meeting/greeting the principals and administration from each school. I felt like my head was going to explode once I left! I was smiling from ear to ear the whole time and was so worn out! But...I did see some friendly faces that I knew, so that was fun to catch-up with some people!

That afternoon, I got called back for a face-to-face interview. Again, I didn't know what to expect with this either. They do an overall district interview and score you on this. After you are scored, they put it in their system so that any schools who want to interview you, can look up your score and call you in for a personal interview. Needless to say...I had to sit in front of THREE principals as tehy fired off questions for me! It was pretty intimidating! Overall, I felt like it went pretty well. I am really hoping for a call-back sometime soon! I want to have this whole job situation taken care of before the Summer really gets off to a good start! I do NOT want to spend all summer being concerned with finding a new job!

We went and looked at some houses while we were there....the two that I thought I would really like....turned out to be no bueno! But, my parents' friends are trying to sell their house that is out on about an acre and a half...we really liked it! So...we are debating....but we need to get somethign going with our house first! PRAYERS NEEDED!!!

We still feel like it is so crazy that we are going to be moving back....but we are so excited at the same time! You guys are probably so sick and tired of reading about all of this....but just know that I appreciate your prayers and your sweet comments during such a stressful time!!

Have a wonderful week!!

XOXO,

Hilary
