"Life move pretty fast, if you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it"
My life has moved faster than usual in the past week. I think it was last Thursday when they posted a new job opening at my school. The district is creating a new position at all of the middle and high schools to have a new College and Career Counselor on staff. I knew that they were going to be creating the job, but I assumed it would require counseling credentials. When the announcement was finally made, it was listed as a "specialist" instead of a counselor and I met all of the requirements. Thinking that this might just be the change that I need right now, I discussed with the family and eagerly applied. Much drama ensued and the job description changed several times during the week, but in the end, it was a job that I wanted very much to do and it was offered to me!
So now I need to move out of my classroom and get a new teacher ready to take over AP Biology, learn how to handle all the new job responsibilities, attend training sessions and planning meetings and move into an office. I also need to wrap up the semester, submit final grades, pack and move furniture to the house in Virginia..... I am sure there is more, but right now I am just making lists and contemplating the future. I did get to start in on the green scraps though. I got all the ironing and trimming done. I was just ready to start sewing blocks together when Anna declared that she was coming home for the weekend. Most importantly though, I need to make some serious progress on Sydney's t-shirt quilt, because graduation is just 6 short days away.
sometimes the days just fly by
Congratulations on your escape from the classroom, Angela!! I know you will do a great job with this new assignment. Hope you can relax with a bit of scrappy sewing this weekend!

Congratulations on the new job, it sounds very exciting. Good luck with all those items on your list. I'm amazed you have time to sew, but I know time spent with fabric and thread helps us manage stress. Even good stress!
Oh MY! That's a truckload of things to do. When it rains, it really pours. Sorry for all the extra work but congrats on the new job! I didn't get the job I applied for last month but I'm happy to hear that some people do get their dream job. There's still hope for me. Enjoy some green sewing and Anna of course. ;^)
