The news is on Facebook

I told my principal about the job offer today.  He took it very well and was understanding about it.  He said he knew that a library job was what I wanted and he hated the fact that the budget cuts prevented me from getting the job at the school.  He said that it will be tough to fill my shoes. 

I stayed at the school and worked all day.  I started going through things deciding what to take and what to leave behind.  I think I’m going to leave a lot my files and such.  Most of them are in electronic format, so I will just take copies of anything I don’t have saved.  I started packing some boxes and hope that I won’t have too many to move.  The nice thing about moving is that hopefully I will pare down all my stuff.  I have way too many things in spite of having about 4 garage sales here already.  Will have one more probably the weekend before I move. 

I spent hours and hours yesterday looking at rent houses online.  I have way too many to potentially visit this week.  I’m going to have to figure a way to eliminate some from my list. 

Now that I’ve told my principal, I posted the news on Facebook.  I didn’t want to say anything on there until I had told some key people the news first.  So now I’m getting all sorts of congratulations which is really nice.  Even my former mother-in-law called me as soon as she saw my status. 

Here’s something funny for you.  Amarillo has its own minor-league baseball team and it has had some struggles in the last few years.  It has been renamed four or five times, I believe, and most recently are called the Amarillo Sox.  They unveiled a new mascot (which is a gold “sock”) but unfortunately, the costume had some issues.  Click here for the article from the paper – and here, for an even better picture of the phallus, uh, I mean costume.

Are you scared? I am so excited for you, but I have to worry about you as well. I wish I lived closer and I could help you move. You certainly will be much closer to me. Anyways, I am alwasy here for you and can't wait to see how things go!

Yes, Andrew, I'm totally scared - but excited at the same time. It would be wonderful if you were close enough to help me move. That's one of the things I'm trying to figure out - how to get all of that accomplished. I can't even remember who helped me move last time!
