Good News...FINALLY!!

As far as the title goes, I should clear up a few, I'm not pregnant, no, I haven't lost 100 pounds, no, I haven't found a cure for people who say stupid things without thinking, and no, I haven't found a million dollars just lying around the house. (Hee-hee!)

I do have good news though.  First, I was nominated for this blogging award by one of the ladies who follows this blog.  That's just cool.  It makes me feel like an adult--(now if I could just be as tall as an adult...) I'll get back to it in a second.  But my BIG good news is this...I FINALLY GOT A FULL-TIME JOB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I would do a flip, but then I'd probably end up in the emergency room.  I'm still going to be a Paraprofessional--or teacher's aide, but at a larger school, and FULL-TIME.  I'll be working with Special Education students in the high school and helping them both with their academics and with job/life skills.  I went in for the interview and the lady told me that I was one popular woman, because she'd had a TON of phone calls and e-mails from people telling her how good I would be for the job. (Thanks people at church!)  I didn't tell anyone to contact her, but my church knew I was hoping to be considered for the position.  Anyway, I make it official on Monday after I talk to my current principal.  It's just sooooo nice to be offered a job after an interview.  I have some of my confidence back.

OK , back to this award thingy I got.  I'm supposed to link back to the person who nominated me (which I don't know how to do--help!), then list 10 facts about myself (okey-dokey), and then nominate other blogs that have touched my heart. (which I would do, but most of them have already gotten this award, and the others are private blogs--soo once again--help!)
Here goes:
1.  I am three inches taller than the mandatory "you should be in a booster seat". 
     Amazingly enough, I can still drive well and see over the hood of my car.
2.  My husband is a foot and a half taller than me--which points to God's sense of humor!
3.  We have a cute dog and two cats.
4.  I enjoy crocheting, knitting, needlework, reading, writing, gardening, basically any
     type of work that allows me to be creative.
5.  I'm one of the pianists/organists at my church, and I pray every week that the organ
     doesn't blow up while I'm playing it!
6.  I'm amazed by the love the FATHER has shown me these past few years.
7.  I find beauty in the small things--the wings of a sparrow, the sunset, the face of a child...
8.  I intensely dislike housework.
9.  I'm waiting impatiently for the yard to dry so that I can get started on the garden.
10.  I believe that children are one of God's biggest blessings...and continue
       to be surprised by those who take them for granted.

As far as the rest of the challenge---I'll do it as soon as I learn how.  But thanks very much for the honor.  And..........I'VE GOT A FULL-TIME JOB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  1. Yay! I'm so happy for you. Congrats on both the job and award. If you need to nominate another blog, but can't find any, let me know. I can think of two off-hand that I know of. I was having "one of those days" and you've inspired me with your upbeat attitude. You go girl!
