There I was, minding my own business, it was the beginning of August, I had no concrete dye plans, and I knew a change would be upon me in a few weeks when the minions went back to school. No problem, we'll just make a new schedule and plan out the next few months. I had a routine mapped out where I would drop the kids off, come home and soak yarn, go for a run, dye some yarn, clean everything up, pick up the kids, work on dinner/pick up the house, knit. Nice, neat, domestic, manageable. Perfect.
Then I got a phone call while the minions and I were at the State Fair. (Which reminds me, I will add some Fair photos to this post later.) It was the school principal (the one who gave us Charlotte/Aragog). "Do you like your current nursing job?" Why? Do you have a full-time school nurse position open? "No, but I have a part-time opening. Do you want it?" Maybe.... All of a sudden my nice neat little organized plan came crashing down (potentially) and my brain was overcome with variables - time, $, schedule, benefits, hospital job, my business, running, housework, what if, what if, what if... You get the idea.
I figured it wouldn't hurt to interview and find out what I could as to whether or not it would be feasible to take such a paycut... I spent many a day talking myself into staying where I was then into taking the school nurse job if it was offered and then back again. I interviewed on my birthday and was offered the job today and after talking it over with the hubby we decided that it would be an alright move for our "team". I am going from working 6 or so days a month to having 6 or so days a month off so I'm not sure how everything will play out as far as my running and dyeing and all that goes but we'll make it work. I can make anything work! I will still be working at the hospital as a prn staff to supplement during the months/Summer. Busy busy!
Here are some pictures that the minions and I took while we were meandering around the State Fair this past August.
