Where have I been?! The last 2 weeks have been incredibly busy on both a professional and personal level. A week ago Monday, I interviewed for a principal's position. I got the word on Wednesday that I am 1 of the finalists and will be interviewing again this coming Monday. If everything goes alright, we should know by the end of the week who the 2 principals will be for the new school that is opening up in September. The school will actually be 2 schools on 1 campus. To say I am excited, is an understatement! On a personal level, I have been busy "helping" my husband plan a small birthday dinner for my upcoming birthday this week. I CANNOT believe I am going to turn 50! It is quite a milestone! Several friends are going to join Mike and me in celebrating several birthdays; 2 friends follow my birthday and my lovely husband's birthday is February 19, so we are going to celebrate all 4 of us at this dinner. I told my husband I wanted something very small that would be about the 4 birthdays. I have NEVER been into parties, so low-key is just perfect for me. I will start off my birthday by having a 4-day weekend, and on Friday, 1 of my oldest friends, Art, will be meeting me for breakfast in Pasadena, to celebrate his birthday, which is 2 days before mine, and my birthday. By the time February winds down, I will have celebrated my birthday all month. Lastly, I am involved in 3 Valentine's Day swaps, so that means making time to make individual valentines. Here is the 1st swap - Kara's swap. I made 3 boxes and stuffed them with beautiful Valentine's Day themed items. The 4th box is a gift for 1 of my closest friends. I stuffed a beautiful, red silk tie into it, to make it an extra special gift. The photo above really shows the details of the boxes much better than the photo below. Anyway, the 3 boxes are now on their way to Kara's house so that she may separate them and send them off their new homes. Hope the new owners enjoy them...
