FRIDAY JULY 16 - 5 AM

You're asking yourself, "Why on earth is she writing a post at 5am?"  (So, Michael can make fun of my spelling all he wants.)
NO, that is not why.  I woke up when Tom left for work and then I couldn't get back to sleep; I am a little excited and my brain is going a million miles an hour.
I got offered a teaching position in LAS VEGAS, NV.
The principle of a school called yesterday to do a phone interview.  We talked for at least a 1/2 hour and he offered me a job.  I told him that I really had to talk to my husband about it and that it would be a few days before I could answer.
Of course, now we have to figure out what we are going to do.  I want to go.  There is no question in my mind, that this is a great opportunity.  Las Vegas is a growing city, (it has it's own problems too I know) and the possibilities for keeping a teaching job are much higher there, than here in Michigan right now.  And I don't think the situation in Michigan is going to get better in One year.
Our biggest concern right now is getting a job for Tom.  He would like to be a Parole officer and well, he has to pass the physical agility tests to get into that... ewwww.  He might try the gaming commission, or even security at the casinos.  We are trying to figure out what to do. 
  Here is the High School I got offered the job for.....  http://ccsd.net/schools/cheyenne/
 
A rather large school, he said over 2000 students.  It looks to be a newer school and they have a good sports program, and did you see the million clubs?
We have a lot of thinking and work to do this weekend.......
 
By the way - the carpet got cleaned and oh did the basement stink yesterday.  I have no idea what it is like today.  Tomorrow we get to decide if the carpet has to go.
Talk to you all later,   Tammy
