All right, I've got ten minutes before I have to pick my daughter up from preschool.
Let's see, what's going on? Not too much different than previously, just even more running around since the period between September and the beginning of January always seems to be packed with too much to do and not enough time to do it.
My son's enrichment program will be going to Europe at the beginning of June, so we've got that to look forward to, as one of us is required to accompany him since he is only 11. When he turns 12, this will no longer be the case, so we have only this trip to get through before we won't have to spend thousands of dollars to fund ourselves. Our son is subsidized heavily, the chaperone is not. But I am determined that he will not miss this trip, as excursions like this are exactly why I wanted to homeschool.
I'm looking for a part time job, and not even Disneyland wants to hire me. That kind of hurts as they are very fond of hiring high school students. I guess a college-educated mom who has been out of the workforce for ten years just isn't what they are looking for. I might form some sort of union or something. I mean, I didn't even make it to the interview, for goodness sakes. AND I have a reference from someone who currently works full time for them. That's harsh Disneyland, harsh.
Another problem is that I am very limited in my schedule, but my husband seems to think everyone is going to jump at the chance to hire me. Uh, I have a news flash for him, they want people who can work whenever THEY want them to, not someone who can only work weekends and one day out of the regular week.
I've got birthday parties galore (not my own) and Thanksgiving and oh my God I only have one minute left...
