Falling into Place

With God's help things seem to be falling into place. I had my thesis presentation this past Monday, and it went well. I accepted a job offer with the company Perkins + Will. I am really looking forward to working there. They are really into sustainability, but not only in their practice, but in the office as well. All the power they purchase is green power (wind or solar) and do things like give incentives for people to take mass transit or bike to work. They even have a shower in the office for people who do bike in. And our medical benefits retroactively begin my first day, so God willingly that will help us out with the hospital bills.

So I am almost done with school (perhaps forever). Just two presentations and one final exam left!!!

if you want to see something amusing, watch an 8 month pregnant woman try to do prone walk-outs over a swiss ball without falling off. or trying to play hopscotch.

i'm starting to think i'm not really fit to be teaching balance and coordination to my kiddos anymore.

highlight of my day

the highlight of my afternoon: a co-worker brought in one of her baby goats to the clinic today and then proceeded to ask me if i could do physical therapy on the goat. i don't think i've laughed that hard at work in a while.

coming together

this past saturday i went to a consignment store in midtown to look at a glider i had seen on craig's list. the one i had ordered from target fell through, it was a big fiasco and i won't bore anyone with the details. the end result was that i had to find another glider. so like i said, i went to the store to look at one and it was really pretty and in great shape. and when i got there, she immediately took 50 bucks off the price. so i snatched it up because it was another great deal, i was so excited! well, the store also happened to be about 1/2 mile from IKEA so of course i HAD to go. and it was a good thing i did. the shelves we had been looking at online are being discontinued and so they were all 60% off!! another great deal!! and they only had 2 left of one of the kinds of shelves. so it was perfect timing. of course, i got some other things for the nursery, you just can't beat IKEA's prices. andres asked me to wait to put the shelves together so he could help, but i put together one of them just to see it. here is a picture of some of our nursery stuff. other stuff we got were curtains, a toy organizer, and a blanket. i can't wait to get the walls painted and start hanging stuff on the walls. and we need to paint the glider black as well. i can't believe it's only 9 more weeks!!!!
