Am I the only "grad school" wife to think that upon graduation all the struggles will end? Could I have been so deluded to assume that a job would magically slap itself in front of us as he walked across the stage? Wow, I've clearly not learned the lessons of "shit economy"/life.
So, for the last few weeks I've been scouting and Jahred has been applying. I'm sorry to say that Mr. Job Wonderful has yet to arrive but with so many irons in the fire, eventually it should spark...right?
A special "shout out" and a HUGE "thank you" to our many helpers who are pounding the doors of human resource departments...please keep knocking!
Aside from all of that business, last weekend we took an Axel "time out" and got to some fun things we've been meaning to do. For x-mas, we were given a membership to "Under Water World" at the Mall of America. I have been dying to go...so Friday we took Axel to visit the sharks. He bit...big time...and would have stayed all day. Lucky for him, we have a whole year of aquatic fun ahead of us!
Also this weekend we took him to a pool. We miss the summer pool at Grandpa and Grandmas so it was nice to see him jump right in and remember the beauty of water. Wanting to capture the moment I busted out the camera, only to be shot down by a junior lifeguard. Apparently, cameras are no longer allowed at the public pool since a pervert was taking pictures of kids. WHAT THE HELL? Sometimes I wonder what America is coming to. The land of the free, and the home of "don't you dare take a picture of your own kid". I understand the rule, but wonder with all the discreet picture taking devices how this can possibly be enforced.
So...for a change, only a small disappointment this weekend and this time not in hospital administration, but at society as a whole. I find broad spectrum blame to be most helpful in these stressful situations, but I'm glad to say that our "weekend retreat" was helpful.
Monday morning, time to hop on the job sites. Have a wonderful week...please pray for spring.
