Prayers ... most certainly!!! Sounds like this is something you really want. And if you could, say a little prayer for me. We are doing our layoffs and will know by the first week of March if I will still be employed. (Please don't let this derail the original intent of the thread!)

Keep us posted girlie!

Sattie, of course I am praying for you! I know the wait will be hard on you, but stay positive. I will PM you one of the things that has gotten me through these months. Maybe you can gain strength and assurance from it, as I did. (My attention span is about 3 minutes long sometimes, so remind me if I forget!).

I am so thankful to have the support and prayers of all my friends and family here. You all don't know how much that means to me. I love you guys!

I have to admit, I really miss teaching. Plus, with both of us being out of work, money has been a big issue.

Barbara

Here's hoping it all works out for you Barbara!! Good luck!!

And Sattie, while I hope you aren't one of the unlucky ones, if you are, I hope you find something bigger and better very quickly afterwards. Good luck!

Of course Sattie, of course! You are included - glad you asked. You and Barbara must let us know, please. Is there a jobs forum; jobs prayers, thoughts, best wishes?

I just called. The woman I talked to was so nice. She explained how their program works (It is Huntington Learning Center, btw), and it sounded really great. She asked if I would like to come in tomorrow morning at 11:30 to take a look around and get to know them a little before the kids start coming in. I am so excited!
