The stuff....

~Tired~
I have been exhausted the last week or so. Somehow I can't seem to get to sleep until at the earliest 12:30 AM. On the days I get frustrated and try even harder to sleep it doesn't work out until almost 2. Last night I thought I slept well but I was moving pretty slow all day. Then I crashed about 4. Booo.. hopefully this little stage passes sooner rather than later.

~Vacation... Maybe?~
Last night I was logging onto my email and saw an advertisement for super-cheapo cruises. So like a complete idoit I click on it. "Hmm, I wonder where to?" ... "I wonder how much it would really cost?" ... "hmmm" CLICK CLICK... all the wondering and all the clicking lead me to some pretty great deals! 4, 5 and 7 night Mexico cruises leaving from San Diego or LA hitting places like Catalina Island, Cabo San Lucas and Ensenada. We could basically afford the cruise and it's applicable fees and that is IT. The nice this is that meals are included and from what I understand that is about it. We could hang out by a floating pool and tool around the ship not spending any money, oh and then there is the little matter of getting ourselves over to Southern Cali... We could always walk or hitch hike. Ha hahaaaa Well It was silly of me to get my hopes up as well as Kevins. Maybe we'll go to the Botanical Gardens in Denver, dinner, The Original Pancake House and the Hyatt in Denver (WE LOVE LOVE LOVE THE HYATT). That's what we like to do. :) It isn't a Mexico Cruise but sometimes we have to take what we can get. Right folks? Any of you who are looking for something special to do post-deployment with your soldier really look into cruises!

~Interview~
Today I had an interview for (what I thought was) a secretary position at the elementary school on Post. It went well but the position is on an "as needed" basis and not necessarily as a secretary. The interviewer told me the more available I am in regards to the positions I'll accept (library assistant, preschool, admin) and their different locations around the district the more opportunities for work that I'll have. If I make myself available everywhere around the district in all positions I should get a few calls a week. I have mixed feelings about this. I was dis disappointed that the position wasn't full-time work. But really I think that it's potentially a great opportunity. The interviewer also told me that the more I go to on a specific assignment at a specific location I could build a relationship with the people there and in then the more they request me specifically! (: They gave me I9, W4's and policy forms to fill out and when I complete them I have to schedule a time to drop them off and have my finger prints processed. I guess this is all good right?? I am going to ask around and see what some people may know about this kind of as needed work with this school district. What do you guys think? Bogus? Waste of time??

Tomorrow I'll have to run errands, hit the gym and I have tentative plans to go to the pool on post with my sister and Nathan. I wonder if there's time to do it all? We shall see. Tootle-lou people time to relax!

I think that could be a really great job! It could have the potential of not getting boring because you'll be doing something different often. Plus with it being part time you'll have time to get other things done during the days!

my life isnt easy but its the only one i got said...

I agree with Shenanigans. Plus it will allow you the freedom of not having to take vacation time when I come home and if we are able to make the cruise thing work. plus it is better then nothing. What ever you decide my love I support you. I love and miss you. I will talk to you soon. MUAH

i did temp work for district 20 a few years ago, and was hired on after about a month full-time doing high school study hall. and i got calls quite often for the temp work, and made okay money.

Be careful about those cruises. Yeah, it's "all-inclusive" - unless you want to drink, and I don't just mean beer. They charge you for anything that's not water or can be mixed into water (like tea). Coke or anything like that is extra, which, to me, was a HUGE deal. Not to mention all the gratuities and stuff you use throughout the trip. It wasn't a whole lot of money, but we spent more than we had budgeted for because of all the "hidden" costs.

Wish I had advice for the cruise, but I've never taken one. TOO SCARED! Yes, I'm the scaredy cat.. LOL Have fun though!

I would LOVE to go on a cruise! I live in Minnesota and would love to wait until it is fricken' cold outside so I could enjoy the wonderful weather!

Tickets area under $300 a piece to Cancun and there is a free place to stay, free food and when you do want to stay at a hotel, I know lots of people with Cabanas right on the beach.
