Helping Hand

It was nice to sleep in this morning.  I was exhausted after yesterday.  I still didn’t sleep really well, but at least I didn’t have to get up early.  I took Mollie to the groomer today.  I called Matthew when I got back, but he was still dealing with the cable installer.  He called me back a few minutes later and asked me to come up and help him.  He had gotten quite a bit unpacked.  I helped him move his computer desk over and then we headed out to look at more tv stands.  We went to Target and found one that he liked, but he wanted to look at a few other places.  We went to two other furniture stores who had some really nice things, but the prices were rather high.  So we headed back to Target and he got the one he liked.  We came back to his apartment and carried the pieces of it upstairs rather than trying to lug the heavy box upstairs.  I helped him put it together.  We realized after it was done that two of the pieces were backwards so we had to take the bottom off to switch them.  After that he had to go talk to an insurance agent so I worked on sorting his CDs and putting them in his cabinet.  When he got back he was ready for a nap so I headed home.

Tomorrow he is going to his old apartment to clean.  I’m going to try to talk myself into cleaning my bedroom.  We still have our date planned for tomorrow evening.  I’m really excited.  Although I do like going out and doing things – dinner, shows, movies, etc, but I like just spending time at home probably even more.  His new place is great.  It is much more bright than his other apartment.  His old apartment obviously had a smoker in it at one point and you could always smell the smoke. 

I started the process of filling out another application today.  This one is for a university library that is an hour and a half away.  It would mean at least a temporary move if I got it.  But I’m getting a bit desperate right now.  I’m wondering what direction I should go in – should I try to stay in public schools or make the jump to a university if I could?  I think working in a university with a higher level of students and professors could be great.  One reason why I decided to get my master’s degree in addition to my certification was so that I would have that option.  Of course I’m getting ahead of myself.  I just hope to get an interview at this point.
