FNSI, Very Late, and Lots of Other Things
What happened with FNSI is that I did not even get an adequate amount of fabric cut to take a photo!
Aside from that, a lot has been happening.
Two weeks ago I had a job interview. One week ago I accepted the job (actually about 5 days). Yesterday I resigned from my teaching position and asked to be released from the 30 days' notice.
Last night the personnel director reported that the superintendent agreed.
Today I went to work and was told to gather my things and leave. I had to negotiate being able to tell my students and say goodbye to them. Interesting, since the district's excuse for so many things is that we have to put the students first. I did say a very brief goodbye, and my heart aches for the kids who cried. I wasn't even allowed time to write a note to send home with them.
Tomorrow I will report to my new job--much smaller school [a state chartered school in ABQ].
Because of being sent home early I was able to troubleshoot some computer problems with Wi-Power. The router was bad, but under warranty, so I'll have a new one in a few days. In the meantime my computer is tethered by a blue cord (remember those), so the placement is pretty inconvenient and I'll be spending more time doing something else--catching up on some reading, perhaps?
New job means two hours more choices every day since I won't be spending those two hours commuting. I'll be able to go to bed later and get up a little later (and have more time to see my Sweet Teen), so I hope to have an extra hour for reading, etc., and an extra hour for quiltmaking.
Autumn is here. Freezing temps every morning. Mums are barely surviving, but pansies and dianthus have not yet given up their little ghosts. It will be interesting to see how many ghosts and goblins we have this year. We've had none some years--and one year we had six!
I hope all my readers have a sweet old-fashioned and delightful Halloween!
