Card Patterns Sketch #104

Hey there! Happy Monday! Well, sort of... my day started off well and right before I was going to run, I checked my school email... And we got an email saying there would be cancelling the annual teacher job fair and postponing the transfer job fair... I was hoping to transfer schools within my district to stop coaching... it's long story but, in order to quit coaching I have to transfer schools... I know that most states are working on budgets due to the recession and Texas is no different... Our state legislature is cutting school budgets severely, closing schools, cutting certain programs... Please pray for wise decisions made by the people we elect to represent us.

Update to post above: I was driving to work today and the thought crossed my mind... I wanted people in blogging land to know that I absolutely thankful for my job, and I will continue to be thankful for my job if I am still coaching next year. My main reason for not wanting to coach is two fold: #1. I want to have kids soon and I want to fully devote as much time as I possibly can and #2. my heart isn't in it anymore... It's not fair to the athletes to be grouchy and not give them the attention they deserve... Thanks for any prayers for new teachers graduating college and looking for jobs. I never thought I would have to worry for fellow colleagues looking for jobs in the teaching industry!

Anywho, enough of that! I was able to fit in a new card yesterday! Went to church, cleaned, did grocery shopping! I am super wife! Not really, but sometimes I feel like it!

I was able to play along with the new sketch at Card Patterns! I must say that I love the squares!

Here is the sketch!
