Busy Week!

Over the weekend, we had the honor to host friends of our's from Purdue for an evening! Mitch surprised his wife Alice by taking her to a TN football game and staying a night at our house on their way home. We had a delightful time with them and it went by all too fast! We took them to our favorite BBQ joint and to our local tourist trap -- Casey Jones Village. We walked around the old country store and played with various chotsky.

The weather as finally cooled off some. In fact, we've turned off our air, and I just keep the windows open (plus we have a ceiling fan in each room, but I don't use them much). So on Monday, I pulled out my fall clothes. It was like Christmas came early! I always forget what clothes I have, so when it's time to pull out a new season's clothes its like I just went shopping.

Yesterday, I got a callback for substituting. I had to go into the central office, finish paper work, go take a drug test, and go get a background check/finger printing. After driving all over in order to complete my new job needs, I decided to celebrate with a trip to Target. Where is Sarah Cardinal when you need her? I had to browse the clearance racks alone. But I came out with a cheap new bathing suit for next year, and a few new shirts. New shoes at Walmart complete my needs for new clothes to teach in (okay, more like wants than needs).

Now I am awaiting a phone call stating that all the paperwork and testing went through and I will be on the official Jackson-Madison County School Substitute List. . . .
