"It's all about who you know"

That's what I heard someone say behind me in line about 30 times this morning. Well guess what? I don't know ANYONE in the Mansfield school district, which is why I stood in line outside the Stadium for 30 minutes, only to be turned away from a substitute teaching orientation.

The economy is really bad, guys. Everyone is saying it, so it must be true.

That was supposed to go until 11:30, but here I sit. Disoriented.

Job searches are exciting for about 3 days, and only when you still have your old job that sucks, but you see the light at the end of the tunnel. Now I'm in that "light" and I have a sunburn, so to speak. By this I mean, I've been overexposed to the light that is quitting my old job that sucks. Is any of this making sense?

In other news, the house is coming along. Two nights ago, I FINALLY set up the office. It's cleaner, and better, but not finished. Still needs paint, new office furniture, new closet doors, etc.

Last night, I FINALLY implemented Phase 1 of cleaning our master bathroom. Actually, I guess it would be more accurate to say I completed Phase 1, since we'd already been using this bathroom. LONG STORY SHORT, I put shelf paper in all the dirty drawers so now my stuff can sit in them without my worrying that someone else's hair or makeup is contaminating my things.

I swear, every time I try to clean something in this house, I go through an entire canister of Clorox wipes, and find things that continue to amaze me. Last night, one of the bathroom drawers was filled with sawdust. I can't help but wonder if this is on purpose? Surely, it is....

Elvis has developed a love of the swimming pool. A few minutes ago I peeked in the backyard and he was sitting on the edge of the hot tub, just staring out over the pool. He's even claimed his own pool float. Luckily, he's only really interested in it when we're in it.

Elvis on his floatie.

Looking like a wet rat.

So hopefully, some progress will be made on the house this weekend, and I can post some more pictures. I did paint our bedroom last week, and Kennedy installed his surround-sound in the living room this week. More painting, maybe?
