I can finally spill the beans...

So in my last post, I told you that I had something
to share but I really didn't want to jinx it
yet by sharing all the details. Well after this weekend
things fell into place and I can finally share my exciting news!
I am moving back to Springfield!!!
I am in total shock. My parents came to me on Thursday night
after I had a rough afternoon of calling school districts to
follow up on my sub applications to be told that they would be
interviewing for subbing positions. INTERVIEWING??
WHAT THE EFF? I am a certified teacher and I might
not be good enough to sub? Others told me they have so
many subs that they won't be hiring for a while.
Needless to say I was disheartened and frustrated.
After not getting interviews or feedback from my apps
on a full time positions i was really upset
and felt worthless.
So my dad, of all people, had the grand idea that since
last Spring I was getting a lot of sub jobs in Springfield
(and i was just on at one district, not the 10-12 in
the surrounding areas) that I might have an easier
time with getting regular sub jobs plus making
connections if i moved down there. I was in SHOCK
that they would even think about letting me move down there.
So the plan was for me to look at apts next weekend when I go down
well after calling all day friday I found there was not a lot
to choose from in  my cheapo price range.
However we did find two places that seemed
perfect, but they only had one unit available. So what to we
do?Hopped in the car saturday morning at 5:30am
to hit the road to springfield! Anywhooos
after touring a couple places I decided on one
little one bedroom that an amazing open floor plan.

I cannot wait to start DIY-ing and decorating my new place.
My DIY pinterest board has had no action in the past 5 or so
months and I cannot wait to get started! LOVE hobby lobby
I will be moving the in the beginning of October!
I am still in shock but so excited to have my own place again
but mostly to  be back in the classroom!
Happy Monday!

OH PS i cannot believe i never uploaded the pictures of my cat as a cone head. I literally just remembered I had these---
Thats a picture of her boobo.
Its much better now
poor bebe.
she is much better now. I think she gets her cone
off sometime this week!
