 It should be soon, theoretically.Next month we have nothing scheduled. This last weekend, Hubby had a shooting competition with the Lost Brigade (btw – any one who knows wounded veterans should tell them about the competition, it is amazing for the Vet and the family!), and during the meet and greet dinner, the Colonel came up and asked if I had a job…and you don’t lie to a colonel, so I told him technically no, and he set me up with a job offer to someone else who was local and hiring… So I might be working soon now. We’ll see how it all goes. I just hope Hubby is going to be up to the challenge of doing school with the kids on days I might be working. I’m more than a little nervous about it lol

Aww - hope things get more on an even keel for you soon!

 Those sound soo cute! With how busy this month has been, I'm leaving all projects in the hands of 4H and Girl Scouts. Maybe next month when I don't feel like collapsing at the sound of grading I'll put in more projects lol

 Thank you. The whole weekend was amazing, this was icing on the cake lol. I'm a little worried though. I sent her an email once we had gotten back, but I haven't heard anything back. I might be over thinking it though. Part of me really wants it, and then there is that nagging part telling me I won't get to see my kids as often, and Hubby will have to step up and do things and I'll actually  have to trust he'd do them, and then I don't want to hear back from her lol.

Lol - I feel your pain. Whatever happens, you'll breathe a sigh of relief that it's over.
