V had his interview today. He thinks it went Okay. But who ever thinks they did well in an interview. Now begins the waiting game. He doesn't know how many people they are interviewing for the position but he's hoping he has enough diverse experience to stand out. It turns out that he even knew one of the people on the interview panel- he goes to our church. Sometimes it seems like we live in a small town. It is also interesting because several of the other people on the panel are doctors I work with regularly and who know me. I do hope that doesn't ruin his chances, LOL! But time will tell. V was warned that it would be about a month before a decision is made.
Regardless of the outcome of the interview, we need to get cracking on financial aid stuff for J17. I think I mentioned briefly that she got accepted into a private, all women's art and design school. The school was evidently impressed enough by her portfolio that they offered her a scholarship that will cover over half of tuition! But being a small, private school (less than 500 students total) in a major city, the tuition is outrageous! And that doesn't take into consideration room and board. But, it is an old school (around since the 1840's) and on the east coast where she wants to be. And still within easy reach of V's family out there. So, we'll see. We've been trying to steer her in less expensive ways- but art/design school isn't cheap- college in general isn't cheap! With me working less hours, unless V gets this job (or picks up some more freelance work) we'll be tightening belts a bit more. Another reason to focus more on food production this coming year.
Otherwise, things here are pretty boring. Not much else going on. Tomorrow K11 has band after school, tonight J17 has her violin lesson. Sometime this week I've got to bake bread since I'm responsible for the bread for church this weekend.
Oh, yeah! I actually planted something yesterday! I have some oats that we'll use for cat grass planted in a pot on the South windowsill in the kitchen. Spaz has been decimating my potted lemongrass so I figured I'd get him something more appropriate to chew on. I also brought in one of our window boxes that has been sitting outside on a stump. I think I'm going to try to plant some lettuce in it and put it under the grow lights. Maybe in a few weeks we'll be able to have a salad or two. I tried this a few years ago at the old house but didn't have the set up I've got now. Maybe I'll go plant things now before the prez speaks.
