Job Update: B got his hours switched! We are good to go!! Wow, huh? I'm so excited! The only thing is, I have to somehow let them know I need a week off in July for dance Nationals. shit.

Speaking of dance Nationals, J's paperwork for being a semi-finalist for Title is due tomorrow. I wrote the bio (boy, 50 words is just NOT enough!), will fill out the size chart and info form today, and started to panic about the headshot. My mom thought we should really have them done professionally (this IS Nationals, you know). Yeah, right. How am I going to get this done in a day??! Then I remembered about a friend of mine's husband who is a professional photographer. I called him this morning, and was at their house in an hour. He had his whole living room already set up, took about 20 pictures, and within 30 minutes had gorgeous 5x7s ready for us. Woohoo!!

W decided he's finished with baseball and K decided she's finished with the school play. Whatever. I'm not going to force them to stick with something they hate (although I did try). They both would never quit dance, though. All of them would rather be there than anywhere else. I gotta ask the dance studio owner what drug is in the air over there that makes my kids (and lots of others) never want to leave. LOL!

OMG, I knew it! I knew baseball wouldn't last. Not in a bad way though. It's fun to not wonder if you would have liked to do something or not--so he did it, and now he's done. Cool.

And man the job thing went fast. I think I'd be a mess right now. Although I have to say the idea right now of working part time for an airline (hahahaha) appeals to me--you know why. Maybe one day I'll look into it. Congrats. And I wouldn't think you'd have a problem explaining Nationals. When I was getting married--we were married on Halloween, I started a job that June. I told them I was getting married. I was told I would earn a week of vacation by then and I could have the extra week of at no pay, but it was not a problem since I was upfront about it.

Thanks La Mai!

Patrice, I hope you're right about explaining the days off. I'll be paid by the hour and will have those few days without pay, so it shouldn't be a prob, right? I still feel a little stressed about it though.

So what happened? Did you tell them?
