I'm going to bed. I'm not so much tired but I need to make time to write, and if I don't go now, I'll never get a chance. Steve is away later in the week, so this is a good time to rush to bed early, since we've done the dishes. It's barely ten thirty.

The boss asked me today if I'd stay for the rest of the year (wow!), so she can do a fresh advertising run at the end of this school year, in the October Gazette, I guess. She didn't get any applications from overseas even for the position. I said I would think about it. I said I don't know that I can run a family and a full time job just now, and she said we could look at some options, like a day off at some stage in the week or fortnight. I think that might work. I said I'd get back to her. That was nice though, to think she's thrilled with what I'm doing. She likes that I'm passionate about teaching RE, so that's nice, too. I was worried that they would want a more corporate image or something, but they seem pleased with me just as I am *g*

Building up to Mission Day and that's going to take most of my time over the next few days, I guess *shudder* but I'll try to keep an eye on you all! I have to leave the house really early tomorrow morning to get right across town to the other side to see that damned specialist. Bowen Hospital at half past eight. I had to arrange for someone to take my first class. I hate the rush hour traffic. Wish I could fly... I guess I'm hoping they say, 'hey, that's just a lump' and not 'hey, that's cancer' or something equally foul. My GP said casually, 'he might want to take a biopsy' and that has filled me with glee... not! A biopsy, in my mouth??!! OMG!!! Still. I'll just have to wait and see, huh. Another adventure.

And today I taught about Revelations. Now there's a book of the bible we could have done without, I swear! *snort* complex and complicated, and at the heart of many a dangerous and life threatening cult. I always knew about Nero and the 666 though *g* you can't fool me there! Or was John (the author) just off his rocker? I think Revelations had its place, but now? Not so sure. Maybe when I've done a bit more research, huh.

Congratulations on the job offer for the rest of the year! Hope you can work out an arrangment that suits both you and the school because you seem to enjoy it so much and they are obviously very pleased with your work.

Best wishes for tomorrow, will be thinking of you and trust all will go well.

Thanks, yeah, it was pleasant to know that they're pleased. They are quite a caring bunch really. I figured maybe I'll ask for a day off a fortnight or something like that.

Good luck with the appointment, hopefully all comes out well.

And it's nice that you got the offer for the full year, whether you take it or not. It would be a lot of work, but you could handle it if you wanted to! Keep us updated!

Yeah, I guess I can handle it, and the pay is great!! But it changes the dynamics of the household. Still, everyone seems to be coping so far. One week at a time, we're doing okay!

I will be thinking of you at the specialist, hope all goes well and he doesn't do anything too traumatic!!

I'm not surprised she has offered you the job, she knows you can do it, and do it well too! If you're keen I hope you will be able to come to some arrangement about hours/days off. Meanwhile I hope your arrangements for Mission week all go well!!

Thanks! I'll post about the trauma LOL!

I guess you're right. And I think I'll ask for a day a fortnight, since they have a fortnightly timetable. I think that might just make it bearable and I think I could cope with that without doing the job an injustice. It'd mean once a fortnight I get to meet the boys after school and see their teachers and stuff.

Help! This is what comes of scrolling backwards through a flist ... Having commented about missing all info I now read this - too late to wish you good luck. Anyway, *hugs*, *hugs* and more *hugs*!
