People, today I had some things to do with my husband, so we had to run around Boston a little bit, which is always fun. The weather got RIDICULOUSLY cold while we were out, though, so I was shivering for much of the outing (despite the fact that less than 10 hours earlier, I was running outdoors IN SHORTS). Nevertheless, I persevered. I also had to tutor and decided to make an outfit out of the whole thing:
This is the fun, gauzy Gap shirt that I first bought/wore a couple of weeks ago. I'd been wanting to pair it with a skirt for some time, so when the time came, I chose my red workhorse skirt. I liked the way everything looked together and also with the Greek boots. Anyway, I was comfortable all day long (although underprotected from the cold, despite wearing a cashmere cardigan AND my faux leather jacket. Boo hoo...) and felt pretty cute.
Good thing, too, because I am GRUMPY these days... It's Holy Week, which in my household means no dairy or meat until the big dinner after Saturday night/Sunday morning mass. Hard-core observers like my mother-in-law go through all Lent like this, but after just four days, I'm suffering through severe milk (and cheese) withdrawal and both my husband and I are a little grouchy. I can't wait for milk! And Reese's. Mmmm... It's okay - I've been rocking the Welch's Fruit Snacks for the past few days...
In other news, I kinda got a job for next year? Not really. But kind of! I got a call from my contact person this afternoon and she informed me that there was definitely a part-time job opening for next year (which, I was told before, would definitely turn into full-time by the time September of 2012 rolls around), so it looks as if I'm all set? There's still a chance a full-time job will open up for this coming year, but for now I'm waiting for an official job offer for anything. To be honest, I loved the feel of this school, but I'm not sure if it's the place where I want to settle for the rest of my professional life, y'know? I mean, maybe it will be, but maybe it won't - and I'll have the chance to make that decision quite easily if all I have is a part-time job, y'know? Anyway, I'll have more news tomorrow, I hope, and then...maybe I'll be going back to school in September!
