In Which Our Boy Makes Some Tough Choices (and Some Pie)

Monkey's birthday is Monday. We had dinner last night to celebrate, since she will be in Lincoln on Monday, and I will be traveling there on Monday night to settle on the house on Tuesday. On Friday, after a short one or two with Capt. Morgan and Coach B, I came home and made a pie for Monkey. Her choice of desserty-thing on her birthday is always pie...always apple. So, on Friday I made a pie. But that's not all I made.

I had to decide which of the positions I had been offered I would take. I chose a newer school which operates on a block schedule. It will be a new experience (beyond the fact that it is a new school for me). The block schedule entails teaching each class in a 90 minute period, instead of a 50 minute period. This will take some getting used to. But, I really felt a good vibe from the department chair and the principal that I interviewed with, and I had to go with my gut. I don't think any of the possible schools would have been a bad choice, but this one just seemed like the best one for me. So, I have a job and a house...let's move, already!

In other, related news, I found my pants.
