May update.

It's been a few weeks, but to be completely honest not much exciting has happened! 

Work has been a bit stressful.  Staff out - we're always understaffed, but at one point there were 5 staff gone for a week and a half!  Student issues - we've rounded a corner in dealing with some of the major physical and psychological issues in the cottage, unfortunately at the cost of sending a student home.  Hours - Tammy, one of the overnight staff, had to have foot surgery, leaving those female staff to step up and cover the overnights.  Unfortunately, this meant that I had to pull a double shifts (19 hour days!), two weeks in a row.  Luckily that's over now!  Only 3 weeks remaining - no more academics!  2 weeks of camping trips, and college visits, then cleaning/packing the final week.

We've spent a lot of time with family this month.  May will always be a celebratory month for the Ankney family...Birthdays: Jess, Kristen, & Gary & Mother's Day!!!  A few weeks ago, Kristen came in from NY and we went to the in-laws.  We spent a weekend just hanging out outside and had a cookout.  We again visited this past weekend as Dan and I needed to clean out his old bedroom in order to provide space for us to store our stuff while we're away next year.  It was a gross job, but we luckily finished it in one day!!  Now I have to begin the process in our own apartment...how do you know what you're going to need for a year away!?! :-)

I had an interview last night... Hopefully I'll hear back soon to know whether or not I need to keep looking or if I can begin final preparations!  We're so ready, struggling to just "be here" for the next month.
