Job Security

The two Klapper kiddos and I have stayed pretty busy this week.  Since our main man has been out of town for nine days, keeping the daily schedule relatively full has certainly helped to pass the long hours each day.

Last evening, we went over to spend time with a friend whose husband was also working out of town for the weekend.  (Misery loves company, right?!)  As the sun was beginning to set and bedtime for my children was approaching, I gave my little ones the proverbial two minute warning that it was almost time for us to leave.  In jest, I made the comment, "We gotta hurry!  Mommy turns into a pumpkin when the sun goes down!"  And without a second of hesitation, my 3-year-old says, "No, Mommy!  Don't turn into a pumpkin!  We still want you around!"

Whew, what a relief!  Even after a long week of putting up with only mommy and no daddy, I'm still somewhat appreciated, loved, and "wanted around."  My job is safe for a bit longer. : P  Oh, I loooooove that little girl to pieces...

In other Klapper news, I've made the decision to begin homeschooling my daughter this fall via a pre-k curriculum.  Yeah, I know she's still a bit young, but she is so R E A D Y.  I've already been scouring lots of websites, forums, message boards, etc, to find a solid but cheap affordable curriculum.  (oh, and also scouring our garage and attic for things to sell to pay for the stuff!)

I'm quickly finding that there is a ton of quality stuff out there from which to choose.  Instead of constantly bugging asking other homeschool moms about what they recommend or have used, I'm now finding that the better question may just be what to stay away from.  All in all, I'm anxious to find something and get it ordered.  I'm not sure what our plans will be in the long term, as far as homeschooling goes.  But I've decided to just commit to one year at a time, and we'll go from there.  I'm sure lots and LOTS of posts from me concerning this are inevitable.  (Consider yourselves warned!)

My hubby will be home in a few short hours and our family of four will be reunited once more.  Definitely looking forward to the next day or two which will certainly include some rest and relaxation for yours truly!

I interviewed for a teaching job at a Christian school. Tuition is free for my kids if I teach there, but I would be my son's teacher, and I can't decide if that's a good thing or not...
