It is a wonderful Spring day here! Finally!
I met up with the crew this morning for our first group walk. We met up at my sister-in-law's house and then drove a car to the little port village near us on the Erie Canal. It was 11:oo so we had a quick bite to eat (bad me had skipped breakfast because I was in a hurry). I ate a veggie wrap and a glass of water. Had the waitress hold the chips.
We walked along the tow path on canal - back to my sister-in-law's which totaled 7 1/2 miles. It was bright and sunny and went by quickly! The crocuses are starting to bloom and we even spied some tulips pushing their way up trough the muddy ground.
One niece never showed up....had a late night last night we found out later. My youngest sister bailed out early this morning. She had a headache. I told her that was fine...we would be saving the pig nose for her (!) So it was just my 2 nieces, sister-in-law and me. We gloated over the fact that we did it and plan to hold it over the heads of the others next week! The only one with a good excuse was my oldest daughter who was going with her fiancee to pick up her engagement ring. Did I mention she got engaged the night before Easter? Ahh...another wedding to plan and I just finally got over the stress of the last one(s). Both younger daughters tied a double knot in June of '06. A 2 for 1 deal. It was wonderful! And now my last one is taking the plunge as well. Luckily the merriment isn't supposed to occur until August of '09 so I have some breathing room here to plan (and find a job!)
The job I've been waiting to hear about...well....they promised to call within 2 weeks - said we WON"T keep you hanging...and I haven't heard a thing. In spite of my calls (left several messages - wrote an e-mail....) So I've stopped counting on that one. Several positions for Art Teachers have opened up in the past few days so I've applied for all four of them. Fingers crossed...lots of prayers...(the latter being where I'm pinning my hopes).
Happy weekend to you all!
