Do I have what it takes?

I have the name and phone number for a woman who is the director of a public charter Maria Montessori school to open in 2010. She is interviewing people for teaching positions and will be doing the Montessori training beginning July 1. I am considering calling her. If I weren't so shy I would have called two weeks ago. I think this would be a great opportunity for me. The disappointment I would have from trying and failing would be far less than if I don't try it at all.

I like my job, I really do. It's close to home, I like my coworkers (well, most of them anyway), the pay is fine, the benefits are okay, the hours are great. But, it's unfulfilling. I don't get a feeling of accomplishment or much of a warm fuzzy feeling from what I do.

I think I'm ready for some warm fuzzy feelings.

They made me cry

So yesterday was Mother's Day and to all you moms out there who have nothing better to do with your time than to read this pathetic blog (I swear one day it will be great), Happy Belated Mother's Day!

My day was wonderful.  At school, my daughter painted a birdhouse that she surprised me with.  Hubby and she made me breakfast in bed and later in the day they made me cry with a video they put together.  It was an amalgamation of home video with overlays over Lo saying, "I love you because...."  It had me crying, in a good way.  I'm beginning to tear up just thinking about it.

For those of you who know us, this past year has been exceptionally difficult for our family.  I know yesterday marked the start of something amazing.
