Tuesday, May 26


We had a great, long holiday weekend. Matt was off work Friday & Monday and my parents came to town from Cleveland. They arrived Friday and left this morning, giving me plenty of help with the boys and lots of company, love and food!

We marched in two local parades for Payton's school and Matt received his early Father's Day/Birthday present from us. We got him his very first, real man grill. He's very excited and looked up some great recipes to try out on us yesterday. It was a great meal and a fabulous way to kick off the summer. We even squeezed in some swim time at my parents' hotel pool!!

Payton was very tired to go to school this morning. He was crabby and fussy. They're going to bed a bit early tonight. This week looks to be pretty "normal" (whatever that is) with next week being the start of the end of the school year festivities. Payton told me today that he only has 13 days left. I can tell he's ready to have a long break. He'll be done with this session of swimming soon and we'll start a 2 week intensive class. Then he won't have any scheduled activities other than t-ball.

Tomorrow, I have a job interview. My very first in a long time. I heard that Payton's school was looking for someone to be an assistant in the library/media room. The media specialist doesn't have a lot of book knowledge or book training, and they need someone to run literacy groups, read to students & classes and assist teachers with finding appropriate books for their kids.

I'm really excited about it and I think it's really something that I would enjoy doing long term. Payton would be there all day with me and Max will be at the school in a few years. When I am at work, Matt's home a lot, so Max wouldn't have to be in day care a lot; a max of 16 hours a week, spread out over 3-4 days. It really shouldn't be too bad! Now...just pray that I get it!
