another project

Last week I mostly just tried to clean up the house and cook.  I am trying to pick little projects to clean, things I have put off cleaning because they are too cluttered and not in the view of any guests that might visit.  Today I cleaned out the end table that I sit by.  There was so much junk in there.  I need to attack my bathroom sink (underneath) and drawers next.  That is for another day though.  My friend Natalie came by for a visit today too.  She used to work with me at the preschool and quit last year because she had her second child.  She is such a sweet friend.  She brought me some stairs for my dogs to use...particularly Mandy.  Mandy is not able to jump up on the bed anymore, so hopefully I can get her to use them.  I have been lifting her up on the bed every night.
Well, Karl has started another project.  Remember, we changed the sink in the main bathroom.  I posted a picture last time I think.  Anyway, he is taking down the wallpaper and it is actually coming off better than we thought it would.  I always dread wallpaper because it is hard to get off.  We are thinking of painting the bathroom a light gray color and maybe some back splash around the sink. 
Tammy asked if I had considered taking a Paraprofessional job....a paraprofessional is a new word for teacher's aide in case you might not know.  They work their tails off and for not much money.  My answer is yes.  I have just not pulled the trigger yet and applied.  I really would love to do something part time...even a para position part time.  I just haven't seen anything part time, or the hours are crazy.  I really think the only way back into a school district is to work as a para or substitute.  I am not really interested in subbing, I would actually rather be a para, so I know what I am doing each day.  That way the administrators get to see your work and they are more likely to hire you as a teacher when the time comes.  Pray for me.  I am just having trouble taking that next step and I am not sure if I am just being stubborn, or afraid...or if it is just not the right time or the right position.
Have a great week!!
