    I did wear my new skirt. It didn't help, I think they already had someone in mind for the position...story of my teaching career.

I get the no news is good news thing. He's no doubt jet lagged, excited and checking in with home is probably not the first thing in his thoughts! Will he mostly be in touch by emails?
    We've had a couple of Skype message and Facebook message chats. He's posted photos on Facebook too. He's loving it so far

    When my sister and I were teenagers, my parents gave up the big master bedroom for us too. I'd forgotten that.

    That's what I keep telling myself. I'm OK. It's not nearly as bad as two years ago. That one destroyed me. And I've got packing, redecorating, a move and a trip to the East Coast to occupy my mind.

    I've been spending too much time on Pinterest

    Tuesday

    Interview at 10:45. I thought it went well.
    Obviously, it did not go as well as I'd thought.

    The bank loan appraiser toured our house at 2:30.

    Soccer Daughter had a game in the evening. Their team won! 3-1!

    Wednesday

    Cleaned house, carried phone around with me - just incase the principal called.
    Shopping with Soccer Daughter in London in the afternoon.
    Got the "Sorry, you were not the successful applicant" call while shopping.

    It was disappointing. I had some dark moments.
    Chocolate.
    Wine.

    Thursday
    Tidy house. There's only 3 of us here now, but it STILL gets messy
    Laundry.
    Groceries.
    Chocolate.
    Wine.

    No packing yet. I gotta start soon.

    Sorry it didn't work out. I think so often they know ahead of time who they want, and they just go through the motions.

    On the other hand, I got hired cold for my last teaching job, so sometimes they're really looking. Hubby too got his job in a place he had no contacts, so there is always hope.

    Yeah, it's frustrating when the already know who they are going to hire and you are just wasting your time...
    My 1st LTO was a cold hire, the 2nd was a re-hire.

    There's always hope. Somewhere. If not, I'd have looked for a non-teaching job by now.

    Friday
    I don't remember...probably grocery shopping and laundry...
    After supper (perch on the BBQ) we went to the Delaware Speedway with our Daughter.
    Home at 1am

    Saturday
    Packed up some books!
    It's a start. 3 boxes to keep, 1 to give away.

    I laid out on the lawn in the shade and read in the afternoon.
    We pulled the trailer out of the barn and started to get it ready for camping.

    Booth for ice cream after supper. Of course I was put to work when I got there Scooping ice cream, taking orders, etc.

    I stayed up until 2am reading...


    I think I'm in summer mode. Postings will be random.
    I'll try to read everyone's journals, but I probably wont post comments on them every day.
