Ben has a job interview today! And a pretty promising one, to boot! It’s at the school where he did his student teaching, and at least one of the teachers on the hiring committee is someone who knows and likes him. Please send all your good vibes his way! Him getting this job would mean a huge load of stress off our shoulders, and it would make our dream of moving out on our own this summer much more of a possibility.
On a related note, apartment hunting blows. Particularly when you live in a college town. Things here are very expensive, and college students snap up apartments like lightning! Our price range is pretty limited right now, and we have a small target area so that I can hopefully walk or bike to work, so the pickings are slim. The good news is, we can sort of wait out the student rush and pick up something for July 1st if necessary, because we can live with Ben’s parents as long as we need to.
I have a giant bruise on the back of my left leg and have no idea where it came from. My boss pointed it out when I came in from my runch on Wednesday (I was wearing shorts), and I didn’t even know it was there. It doesn’t hurt, but it looks really bad–it’s grapefruit-sized and dark purple. I’ve been wracking my brain trying to figure out what could have caused it, but I’m coming up totally blank. I don’t remember walking into anything, hitting it on anything, or doing anything unusual this week. It’s a mystery!
It’s Kellie’s birthday! I would like to wish my friend and fellow Team Can-Am member, Kellie of Will Run for Ears, a VERY happy birthday! She’s already off to a great start–she and her hubby went to the midnight screening of Avengers: Age of Ultron last night. Pop on over and give Kellie some birthday love!
Any apartment hunting tips?
