I's a Workin' Gal ;)

Well, folks, it looks like I just landed myself a job. :) What's really awesome is that it has flexible hours.

I'll be helping a mom of six (the oldest is six) with housework, childcare and just things. Mostly, it'll be during the day... so I'll be spending my free hours between classes over there. And some evenings. The kids are cute and seem pretty good. I'm looking forward to it - it'll be a rather refreshing change from my student life. :) (We'll see how long I think that! :P) Plus, I can probably use the practice with little kids. :)

So... after 19 hours of school a week, 10 or 15 hours of work, dancing lessons, play practices, papers and other homework... well, I'll resurface in early June! :P

God is good.

In other realms...
Mom and Dad went to Denver this weekend for the first perpetual vows ceremony in the traditional Benedictine order. Pretty fantastic, eh? Mom's flight gets in about 9 tonight and I'll be picking her up in Kansas City. Dad will be staying in the Rockies for a medical conference this week... at a ski lodge! ... Life's rough. (I'm just kidding - he more than earns the breaks he gets!!)
Fr. Harber, Fr. Gallagher and Fr. Asher will be out of town this week for the priests' meeting in Winona... which is cool because it means seven fewer classes this week!! :D And maybe we'll get Fr. Griego for Spiritual Conference Friday. That'd be fun. ;)

Have you ever heard the song "I Just Want to Dance with You"? It's a really cute song. I like it. :)
"I wanna dance with you,
Hold you in my arms once more -
That's what they invented dancin' for...
I just wanna dance with you.
............
I wanna dance with you,
Twirl you all around the floor -
That's what they intended dancin' for...
I just wanna dance with you."

Awww. :P

Okey doke... well, I've gotta get my Theology notes finished and study for a Latin test, so I'll be headin' out now. Take care, all, and let me know what you're up to too! :) (It's not fair for all this keeping-in-touch business to be one-sided. ;)) Adios~

Wow! Congrats on the job! That's great. I hope you don't burn out - too much on a plate can be overwhelming....
Is this a job you can adhere to over the summer as well?

Yessss...finally an "easy" week ahead of us!

I'm not sure... I think we're gonna kind of play it by ear. The baby is 3 months old and, like I said, the oldest is 6... she sounds like she can really use the help and like she'll be needing it for awhile.
We'll see how it goes though...

Yep!! Enjoy this week for all it's worth! :D

sorry, but I personally HATE and utterly detest that song. Maybe it has something to do with how it's performed.
