Spring is coming

I don't have meteorological proof for that, really, but I have felt so much more cheerful in the past two days. I have way more energy, and was even described as "bubbly" by my mother. The grey of winter tends to leave me feeling sapped and depressed, and the little bit of sun we have been getting lately is a lovely change.

I am busily working away at finding a job. If anyone knows of a company in the DC area that wants to hire someone with a PhB in philosophy, let me know! Or if anyone wants to hire Kevin as a Greek or Latin teacher, that would be great too. Haha. I am remaining optimistic that we will find something--it's way too early to be freaking out.

Nothing is really going on around here that is terribly interesting. I am the only member of my family who has not thrown up in the last three days, and so I am trying very hard to not interact with them much so that I don't get sick.

Hopefully something more interesting will happen soon. Perhaps I will go on a photo walk--the blog has been kind of short of photos lately, I think.

Prayers please

The young family of a Wyoming Catholic College professor was hit with tragedy today. Two of their three daughters were killed in a car accident when another vehicle struck their car in the snow. They were 6 and 3 years old. The middle daughter and the father are unharmed, and the mother, who was in the car with her daughters, has not sustained serious physical injuries.

Please keep this family in your prayers. If you'd like to donate to help defray funeral expenses and to make up for the fact that presumably neither parent will be working for a while, there is a link here.

But totally should be:

#YouKnowIt'sCompsTime when you run out of ink the day after refilling your pen.
