I am The Exhausted.

But I'm also "A Blogger", so instead of plopping down on the couch and putting a dent in my already-one-day-overdue book, I'm sitting here typing.

So this post may actually cost me another twenty-five cents in fines.

Quelle horreur!

I'm that dedicated to my craft, to put myself that much more into library debt, just so ya know.

We've had some activity over here. Never a dull moment.

The job front is picking up. I've had interviews, have another tomorrow, and have a firm offer on the table. It's nice to be desired, but I'm also realizing what matters most to me. That complicates matters some, but I'm ok with that. We'll see how everything goes.

There's also some crap really thrilling stuff that's been brewing with the school district regarding Playette's placement for next year. My blood pressue is appropriately high. But I want this to be a happy post, so...

I already mentioned that we're in the midst of our holiday season over here. It all wraps up tomorrow with the big 0-5. It feels like we were just in Vegas, sweating to death while the Bellagio fountains decided that they'd take a break from being majestic that hour, just as we were planning to take our outdoor pics. Ah, memories.

We don't need any silverware, so go ahead and dazzle me with your traditional wooden gifts, k?

On top of that, we're having to say goodbye to new and dear friends. No fair on the moving while we have to stay behind, y'all. Booooo! That's what I say to your orders. Boo. And pa-tooey.

We've also been playing the role of hosts to multiple sets of out-of-town guests so I've been soaking up all the things about summer that I've missed over the last three years of living in HoodiesOnTheFourthofJuly-ville.

There's been plenty of pool and beach time, along with staying up way too late and lots of laughing and talking and reminiscing.

I could get used to that.

Regarding our most-recently-departed guests, this pic was taken the last time our families got together. Way too long, I say.

And check out these cuties now.

They get it from their mamas.
