Dockers and Pocket Protectors

 The waiting and the wondering has come to an end! (finally!)
It is time to get myself  tan Dockers -- the gear of an official 
  That's right!
 This year of hard work (oh my goodness this was a hard year!) has paid off!
  I have been offered a job as an Assistant Principal at a high school.

  I am so excited!
Art teacher to administrator ... how did this happen?

One Day At A Time ...

10 Days:
1 Thesis Project Report completed and turned in.
1 Bestie has a Heart Transplant
1 Praxis taken and Passed (Praxis = State licensing test)
7 job interviews
Life Lesson Learned: 
Take it one day at a time!
Sometimes that is too much and you have to take it one event, task, or moment at a time.

I CAN do hard things!
  Mostly because tapping out is not actually an option.

Change of HEART!

Thursday morning I received this text!  I am pretty sure I just stared at my phone for a while before running  out in the hall to call my Bestie.  Was this really happening?  Yep! 
What a perfect day for Kim to get her heart.  It was sunny and beautiful and Pi (or pie to us) day.
I got to go spend a couple hours with her before the surgery.  We laughed and giggled like we do.  But mostly it was just very surreal.
I want to personally thank Kim's donor and donor family.  Because of their selfless decision during a time of grief and mourning I get to keep my Bestie!  Thank you most definitely does not seem adequate!  But for now ..

you can follow Kim's journey and recovery on FB
