I just got called by the Principal of one of the school's I inteviewed with the week before last. He called last week to kindly tell me they had chosen another candidate, but would call if something else opened up. I was sad, and thought that the promise was a relatively empty one...
Apparently, something did open up, as today he offered me a 4th grade position at the school! I'll be getting my first class of children on August 26th, with orientations before that. This school is a 9 minute drive (3.4 miles) from the Apartment that Ed and I will hopefully be getting (the application is in, we're just waiting for written confirmation- as opposed to verbal confirmation already given- that the tenant is indeed moving out) which means I might be able to bike commute!
Life is finally realy seeming to come together. I feel so grown up getting a job (and students) an apartment, and getting ready to pay for all my own expenses (and my parents are excited about that too)
I've even been running (chiropracter plus some deep tissue massage seems to be helping), and even have a run report to post about an amazing day that Ed and I spent in SF running over the golden gate.
Thanks everyone for being so supportive during my stressful times :)
Glad to be optimistic!
