No teaching job news to report except the Kindergarten position was given to a lady from DesArc, who probably has taught before. That seems to be my area of weakness. Anyways, then I thought I was teaching PreK, but they ended up hiring someone for that, but now they are "coming up with another plan" for me to be in a PreK classroom so I am still awaiting the news. I have been back and forth on the phone with the principal and UCA trying to figure out if teaching PreK will help me get my hours to graduate and I finally met with the superintendent today. He said he'll get back with me next week, but I'm hoping the news comes sooner than later.
Park Street Market got a makeover this past weekend. Mom and Dad came up to check out the house progress and Mom ended staying over until Sunday because Friday night I decided it was time to rearrange the store and put out our fall merchandise. So, I started moving tables by myself acting like I was Wonder Woman I guess. You can move the heaviest tables by scooting and shifting them. I finally quit at 8:00 and decided that the rest could wait until Saturday. We had made great progress by Saturday night and just had a few things left to do on Sunday. I'll post some new pictures of the store in an upcoming post, sooner than twelve days from now hopefully.
I've also been sick. Bacterial infection. We had a horrrrible storm last Tuesday night, woke up with no electricity, and I seemed to be sick. So, I went to the doctor's office that happened to be open and what I thought was just a mild cold turned out to be an infection. An antibiotic and antihistamine prescription later I was back to bed watching tv with a box of kleenex. Matt turned up sick a few days later so we have been sleeping in separate beds for about a week. Just as I think I am getting well, back to bed he comes, and today I wake up with a sore throat. He is dead meat if I get sick again!
Speaking of the storm...look what it did to my house!
Tore up the roofing paper.
The windows were leaned up in the garage. Well, not a smart move when a storm is coming that night. Shattered four windows. Window people are paying for that.
Broke a door frame.
Thankfully it can all be fixed and that roofing paper is now shingles! Last week we also got heat and air ducts and vents put in and they framed out for our fireplace.
The electricians finished wiring yesterday and the flooring company is there today and the rest of this week until Tuesday to do our concrete floors. We are doing a diamond polish and stain concrete floor throughout the house. There will be a border along the edge that will be done in "golden wheat", a goldish color. The middle area of the floors will be done in "vintage umber", a brownish color and will be scored in an 18X18 diamond pattern. I'm so anxious to get it done and see how it turns out!
Well tonight I'm heading to Little Rock with two friends for dinner at Loca Luna. Never been there, but they say it's their favorite so I'm excited. It was featured on Rachael Ray's Tasty Travels and Southern Living called it "a rising star". Yum! Maybe stuffing my face will relieve stress?
Central Freight Lines just delivered 14 boxes of merchandise. I have no room for 14 boxes of merchandise. Better get busy.
