Job Search, School and Frozen Bits

Things are still going well here in Minnesota. I’ve had time to settle in and really start noticing how different things are. Besides the weather, which I’ll come to shortly, life here is less chaotic and stressful.

We are surrounded by warm friendship, love and support which is the main source of the peaceful feeling here. The general atmosphere of our area feels quite easy-going as well. People seem more friendly, and a lot less rushed.

The job search is underway. That’s about all I can say at this point. I have résumés and applications in at several places, all of which would be nice places to work. I haven’t been called for any interviews yet, but it’s still early in the game, so I’m not worried.

It requires a little digging, but there are opportunities to be found. I feel confident and optimistic. Of all the places I’ve applied, I can’t say that I’m more interested in one than another. The one that might interest my readers the most, though, is the Science Museum of Minnesota.

My little buddy is back in public school and enjoying it very much. He likes all his classes and teachers, and already has a nice circle of friends. He’s in two different after-school clubs: one is the chess club, the other an anime club. He’s also in the school choir.

Yes, my little guy is enjoying school again. I’m very pleased and excited for him. It’s been a long time coming!

Last Tuesday, I experienced negative temperatures for the first time in my life. I was walking with John to the bus stop and my nose hairs froze. No, seriously! It was weird because I didn’t realize right away what was happening. By the time I figured it out, my vision started to blur. I quickly realized that frost was accumulating on my eyelashes. I kept pinching them between my thumb and forefinger to keep them thawed.

Don’t worry, though. I’m not the least bit put off by it. I told Mike that it was actually exhilarating in a way. I’ve never felt air so cold; it was a completely new sensation that I’d never experienced and I’m glad I did. That said, we’ve been having warm temperatures in the 40’s and 50’s these past couple of days, and I’m enjoying that very much.

Overall, things are going well.
