A Job Interview and Other News

Well, some things are going on around here, and I thought I should update you.

I had a job interview today. I met with the director of a church-based child care center near my home. It’s actually the daycare and preschool that I went to when I was 4-5. After a mild case of shock when I walked in and experienced a flood of memories, I sat down and talked with the director. She said that she first has to convince the board that they need a new position, but that that shouldn’t be a problem. She said that I would be overqualified for the position she has open, but I told her that that’s perfectly okay. As long as I’m working with kids, I’ll be happy. So, keep sending good thoughts and prayers my way about that. I really want this job. I really need this job.

I’ve mentioned before on here that as a child, I ate very poorly… as in, I only ate six things. Now, as an adult, I eat a lot more than I used to, but I still can’t eat most fruits, almost all vegeables, and anything with pieces or lumps. When I was little, they didn’t do anything about this. Now, they have pediatric feeding clinics. I found one around here and called, asking if they would consider treating an adult. They said that they never had but would be happy to work with me. Yesterday, I got a prescription from my doctor for occupational therapy (OT) and speech therapy (ST) for feeding difficulties. I’ll fill out paperwork (a sensory profile, an eating history, and a 3-day diet history) for the clinic, and I’ll start there within the next few weeks. I’m so excited as the prospect of being able to eat a salad!

Finally, I’ve decided to go see Avatar this weekend. Darn those scary aliens, but they’re not going to keep me away from what I hear is a great movie. Hopefully I don’t get nightmares from them! We are going see it in 3D, but not at the IMAX. I can’t handle the IMAX.

So, that’s what’s new in Lydia Land! I’m going to go watch Alton Brown now 🙂
