Quick Job Updates

I've wanted and tried to post but things have actually been too busy for me to find the time!! 

I got a job offer out of the blue to work part time for the library (the one I'd turned down before but offered to work part time) so that's super cool. The pay ain't great, but heck, it's the public library. It's as Teen Services Coordinator. They are ordering me a laptop and cell phone and I get to develop this new outreach area of the library, working with local teens to create cultural events. So cool!

Consequently I have cut back to just one section at the community college so now I am doing: one class at the community college, two at the university, and then 10 hrs/wk at the library. Plus I am doing some volunteer design work for the local hands-on kids museum that is trying to reopen. I have a little too much on my plate right now. But it's temporary. Aaron and I have a complicated calendar now with blocks of time all over the place.

All I can say is thank God for Meg! So nice she's next door and is available to help us with Sam. So wonderful that we can leave him in good family hands when we both have to be away. This is still only like 10 hrs/wk when he is not in direct care of Mom or Dad and I still feel weird wondering whether I'm choosing work over time with him, but I may always feel conflicted because, well, that's how I am.

Also, the gallery director position is open again at the university. Several profs and people at school recommended me so we'll see if that goes anywhere. I can't do it right now, so that's a big issue, but it is a 20 hr/wk job with benefits and great experience. But recommendations do not an offer (or even interview) make so we'll take it one step at a time.

I'm very tired and should do dishes and go to bed. The semester starts Monday and I have 7:30 am classes. Eeek. I'm pretty well prepped but need to print my syllabi and still need to go over some lesson plan info.
