June seems to be the month of new things for me.

First, be praying on Thursday when I do a phone interview for a math position. a Grade 6 math position. You know how I said I'd never teach middle school? God laughs. Of course, I haven't been offered anything yet. Actually, I think I'd like 6th graders. I did enjoy working with them with Math/Sci and UIL. They're sweeter than 7th and 8th graders.... and it would be nice to contribute to teaching basic skills that will be necessary for high school math.

It's starting to hit me everytime I drive around town that I will soon be leaving. I won't be an "official" resident Texan anymore. (I am native :-) Sunday is our last Sunday at church. Thursday is my last day at school--I turn in my keys, push my boxes of stuff to W's (they're not exactly replacing me--so all my stuff that belongs to the school gets split up between the other teachers.)

I'm sick of cardboard. But I'm grateful for the MANY friends who have helped me by finding boxes at work and newspaper and stuff. and for the wonderful Ashley who helped me pack all the fragile stuff and quite a bit more. If I continue much more, I'll start to cry and I'm not ready for that point yet.

Anyways, just to update--I'm still jobless as you probably have inferred by now. We're houseless until I get a job so that we know where to target our hunt. Later peeps.
