So I called again today and complained. Evidently they haven't passed their water tests yet, thus they can't open. The pool has been filled for 3-4 weeks and they haven't passed yet?!?!?! I've worked at pools for 5 years and only had to close a pool once and that was 2 weeks ago. It does not take this long to get a pool filled and balanced. It really kinda scares me to get in it if they can't get it together to even open it.

So I just went outside to go lay by the pool for the afternoon, and it's not open. It's Memorial Day, 80 and sunny. Why isn't it open???? I called and complained, but the chances of someone actually opening it are slim as there's no one in the office on holidays. GRRRR!!!!

We're starting to pack to move. I can't wait until next week when I will have a date to move in. We're going down and spending a few days to look at places and sign a lease. That will give us a time frame so we can start planning everything and getting it all done. That will be such a relief, even if it means that we don't have much time.

I got a digital camera for graduation, so now I have been taking a bunch of pictures and posted them. Check them out!!! http://picasaweb.google.com/snicolehamilton Let me know what you think!

the next phase is beginning

I am no longer a college student. That just feels really weird to say. I graduated on the 5th and finished my student teaching last week (darn snow days!). I am not a student, I am now a teacher. How weird is that? All of my stuff is sent in to get my license in Indiana. I also have a job! That is the most exciting part. It was a whirlwind interview process, but I accepted the job and am ecstatic. Now comes the equally whirlwind process of finding a place to live and moving to Texas. That's right, I'm going to Texas. The Fort Worth area. I am so excited and ready to get into a new situation and ready to explore. I found a bunch of apartments online, so now we just have to find a time both of us can get down there to look at them and the neighborhoods in person. I am so excited!!!!! I have a special ed/resource room serving preK-3. It will be a great learning experience, and since almost all of my field experiences, including student teaching, have been with the little ones, so I think this is a great position for me. Everything will all work out, I know. It is slowly coming around when we will move and how we will get there, so that is reducing my stress level. Let me know what life is holding for you!
