mish mash

*at a local market*

Well we are back from our little vacation,
we were just gone for 5 days but it seemed like longer
which is nice.
It was warm, sunny and relaxing. It takes us 9 hours to drive there, but it's so worth it!

Now that its mid-AUGUST (eeek! how did that happen?), it's time to
start thinking about getting back to reality.
This week and next my daughter has a couple of appointments
related to her hearing and speech difficulties.
She doesn't have severe difficulties but enough that she has been in speech therapy
on and off for 5 years now.
She also has to have her annual hearing test due to her slight loss of hearing
in one ear.

Plus we will probably do some back to school shopping this week,
which is actually a lot of fun!
But it can also be overwhelming,
and *expensive*
with 3 girls to shop for.
But we'll have fun doing it because, well, it's shopping! : )

It's also time that I start looking for a job probably.
I was laid off my job in May (a welcome thing so don't worry about me) and thought I would take the summer off
and start looking for something around mid-August.
And that time is here.

I'm not ready to back to work!
I'm having too much fun!

But I guess once the girls are in school again, it'll be a good time for me to go back.
I haven't had to job-hunt or do an interview in over 11 years!
I'm a bit nervous.

So I haven't had to think about work, school, appointments, the girls' extracurricular activities,
in a couple of months.
It's all just a bit overwhelming all of a sudden.

But we do still have a couple of weeks left of summer holidays so we'll try and
jam-pack all the fun we can into it!
We have one more camping trip planned and a couple of outings during the days.
It'll be wonderful.

Why does time have to pass so quickly?

Ok, so interview tips anyone? How do you stay confident and not let the nerves get the best of you?

Happy Monday, sweet peas! Have a fantastic week!
