HtB got the Postcard of Disappointment from the job he applied for. We were both really hoping for this one. I know there's a great job out there for him somewhere, but it's not fun to have to wait for it.

We had a really fun astronomy field trip at the library for the fourth-graders at the nearby elementary school. A nature education center brought in an inflatable planetarium! (Picture a big hemispherical tent, only the walls are double-layered and there's a blower blowing air between the two layers. You turn on the blower, and there's a planetarium!) They did the star show, and we did the moon crater activity from our Observe the Moon night, a fun constellation craft (you draw the constellation with white crayon on black paper, and then glue on beads for stars), and we played comet ball outside. (To make a comet ball: stick a tennis ball in the toe of a sock, tie it off with a rubber band, and throw and catch from the sock, not the ball itself.) We had 100 kids come through in two hours. I was beat when we were done.

I can't believe how much there is to do for this ribbon cutting. I'm getting really nervous that I'm going to forget something. I need a calendar that has more than one page per day because my to-do lists are too long for the page.

HtB and I are driving to a town with a Whole Foods on Monday to pick up a Gardein Turk'y. I'll let you know how it is. :)

Hang in there, everyone! *hugs*

*hugs* to HtB. FWIW, I'm job hunting with no success. "It's the economy!" It's really bad out there. Please tell him from me that it's NOT his fault, that lots of good people are not getting jobs because there ARE no jobs - that's why there is an Occupy movement! And I have faith in him that he's going to use that Hufflepuff hard work and keep trying and get a GREAT job soon! And then we can throw a (virtual) par-tay! And yes, he'll be on my pray list!

Please let me know what a Gardein Turk'y tastes like. I've only ever eaten the real McCoy for Christmas. Are you having pie? After all these years, I still giggle whenever I eat pumpkin pie! H/Hr has ruined THAT for me. :D

Thanks very much for the hope - I needed a good dose of it right now! I know that if we all keep our heads up things will get better; we are every bit as good as all those Disney heroines, and it works for them, right? :D

*I need a Princess and the Frog icon*

I'll definitely report back on the turk'y. And yes, pie! But we usually have pecan and cherry, since cherry is HtB's favorite. I have this really yummy recipe for a pear pie (just like apple but with pears). Maybe I'll do that one this year.
