When It Rains It Pours (Good News That Is)

June 23, 2010

Okay, if anyone still reads this, let me apologize that I have not been around.  I have been going crazy with all sorts of stuff lately. Like what, you ask?  Well, here is just some of what I have been up to:

I had a soccer season in which my girls actually did well for the first time in my coaching career.  Those sappy/whip-your-ass-in-shape coaching movies must have really done me some good in the offseason.

Then school ended, and while I was ready for that, I wasn’t really ready for it.  I did not know how much shit I truly had in my classroom until I tried to pack it up all by myself and found that massive amounts of help were a must!

The day school ended, I flew to Pennsylvania for a wedding, and then we drove to Rhode Island for a week, and finally we drove all the way back to Chicago. It was a whirlwind of stuffing my face with all the delicious treats that I have missed for so long.  Oh, and we also saw my grandparents and Dad.

Somewhere in the middle of all of this (around Memorial Day weekend), I discovered I was pregnant, so I went to the doctor and found out that my projected 4-ish-weeks count was way off. Off by 5 weeks, no less, meaning I was 9 weeks along.

Then, after we got home and threw everything from our car onto our kitchen floor, I had a job interview. The interview was great, I felt like I really nailed it for the first time ever. When I was leaving, they said,”You interview fantastically!” before adding, “We’ll know within a week.”

I think they were trying to give me a heart attack.

Well, folks, I found out yesterday that I have a new job!!!!! No more living at my in-laws house in the basement like somebody else’s weird grown child that just won’t go away. That’s right, I am gonna live in my own house like a real woman should.

So, to sum up:

Soccer team placed 3rd in the district, my students of three years graduated, school ended and I had to pack my junk, whirlwind trip to the east eating everything in sight, Pregnant!, job interview, and a new job!

That’s right, everything is coming out Jennie!

Hopefully, I haven’t jinxed myself by saying that…
