    Interesting that you would mention this. That thought crossed my mind. A little while after she called to tell me I didn't get it, I emailed her and thanked her for letting me know and somewhere in there mentioned that I was still very interested and if anything changed to please let me know.

    You may have reminded her of her sister, who she hated. YOu just never know.

    I was 2nd. I have no idea why. It could be that the other person spoke the predominant language of the community. It could be they wanted a male. I just have no way of knowing. The principal told my friend (one of my references) that they were so impressed with me and that I "blew them away" with my answers. Not sure I could have done better than that. #2 I honestly am not expecting anything. I got a bit flustered when the admin was so rude to me.

    School #1 called today. I did NOT get it. I am in shock. Everything pointed to an offer. I really wanted it. Phooey.
  6. I gave my sons some credit for their Eagle projects, but I don't remember what I counted it as.

    Ok, so, interview today was going along swimmingly until the Assistant Principal came in about half way through and was a bit of a wet blanket. She made me feel like nothing I did was right, nothing I said was what she wanted to hear, etc.... BUT, I do think today's school (I will call it school #2) was not my first choice. It is further, in a bad traffic route, and just didn't give me the same "you belong here" vibe. That said, I would still take it if offered and it is my only offer. School #1 called one of my references today and told them they were "blown away" by my interview. I assume that means they will be making an offer. And I hope I didn't give them false pretenses that I am better than I am. 😜 And school #1 is my first choice. I could definitely see myself working there. Keep your fingers crossed, prayers coming, whatever juju you got!

    It is much closer, pays more, and will get me perks I don't currently have. I have 500 students currently, the new job is 325. There are also some leadership issues I can't wait to get away from. I know it exists everywhere, but I have worked in public education over 20 years now and haven't ever had it this bad. I would say more, but I know this board is public.
  9. I have off today. I am SO ANGRY at myself. I scheduled a dermatologist appt for this am, on my day off, 20 miles away, over near my work! I tried to cancel yesterday but the online program wouldn't let me. ARGH! Doctor's appt Help oldest with his final paper for the quarter (I know way more than I will ever care to know about Art History!) Launder and put away towels run a few errands while I am over on that side of town Color my hair!
  10. We have had Thanksgiving for 10 years with another family. We have loved it every year, but my kids begged to not go last year, and I welcomed the opportunity to make it a low key, quite, simple Thansgiving at home. We said we were going out of town, and that was the original plan, but plans changed and we ended up alone, at home, and didn't tell our friends. I don't really consider it lying, since it was true at the time we said it. And I don't consider your plan lying. Your SIL has asked that you make it. There ya go.

    UGH! I will have to miss part of work tomorrow for the follow up interview I have scheduled for Tue am. But I seriously don't know what else to do.
  12. Maybe, although that wasn't the feeling I got when he talked about his youth or parents. But I have no proof.
  13. That all makes me sad. For the record, from what John has said in his comedy, he was a homeschool kid, from the Atlanta area and I think his family has 8 kids. His father was a pastor. I think we, as parents, don't ever want to believe that our child could struggle with something like this and I want to believe that I have raised my boys to respect women, but something about reading this article makes my heart break for his family in their dealing with all of this.

    I have seen all of those, and they are good, just more in the mood for a more recent movie right now.

    Not sure yet! Husband and I don't seem to like the same movies, but we will try to find something. We agree on some comedies and some action movies.
