Thanks Barb! On March 12th, keep your ears open. That big squeal you hear will be me squeezing the stuffing out of Andrew and Hannah! (If you haven't seen them, I posted their pictures in Member Photos).

That is what I am thinking too. Plus I think that just getting out of the house will lift the depression I have had the last few months (I don't feel "depressed" but I don't feel like doing anything. And so I don't. But it has been a lot better lately.).

Just getting out of the house will help Barbara, I was like that 2 months ago before I got my job. Everyone tells me I'm in a much better mood lately. Being out of work really drives a person crazy.

Thanks so much for all your prayers and support!

Wow, congrats! I know how relieved you must be to find something- and something you will love to boot!

You're going to be great, Barbara---hang in there and soon you'll wonder how you ever stayed home without going insane......I love my volunteer teaching job...I'd go nuts here if I didn't have something to stimulate my mind and I love my "children". We had a horrible tragic fire at our school this past weekend and we've been cleaning smoke damage off of all the books. The teacher who I worked for had 30 years worth of teaching materials that were ruined. The school is inhabitable. But prayers & best wishes have been answered and we have found a temporary school for one month and then in April we move to a new and larger school. There is Someone looking out for us, that's for sure............so great luck to you, Barbara!!
