My summer job has been postponed until the third week of May. I need to find work for the next two weeks...Aw shucks...Is it even possible to find a good paying job for two weeks unless I succumb and do child care? Please don't get me wrong. I love children, just not eight of them at once trying to kill each other. I would like to take this moment to honor every person who works with children either professionally, or parently (is that a word?). It is not as easy as it may appear. The blessings reaped are earned with great sacrifice, sweat, tears, and yes...even blood (children have teeth too, you know).

On a more optimistic note, I am currently rejoicing that I can wear my pajamas all day and read. I am reading Jane Eyre, and Donald Miller, and the Reader's Digest, and pretty much any other reading material that I can get my hands on. Tomorrow, my mom and I are traveling by mini van to the exciting terrain known as Kamloops, British Columbia. We are meeting my sister, and eating and sleeping and talking...that is an assumption of course. I must pick a few books to read for the trip...however, the selection is rather dim. I have read very nearly every book in this house at least once. Oh well, on to round two. One of my first errands in town is to purchase a library card. My second, to get car insurance. Despite the beauty and solitude that comes with living in the country, there is also a stark insufficiency of people. My family is quite busy, and despite my introverted tendencies, I tremendously miss being around people.

Well, most of my reading right now is for summer courses that I'm teaching. Poisonwood Bible was good.
