I think difficult child may have <knock on wood> turned a corner. She's started her phlebotomy classes at the community college this past Mon/Tues - and LIKES them! She was practicing her use of a tourneqet on H last night. I ran to the other room! I hate that stuff. And, she's working about 30 hours/week at Marshalls and likes that too! I can't believe she will be 19 next month. Wow. My baby. Someone pinch me. On second thought, please don't! And easy child has been offered two nice jobs this week in the baking/pastry arts field and she's torn. She likes the more casual, easy going small kitchen she checked out today. Less money, but she likes the people. The other place is more money and a grander place to work, but the work would dry up between Jan/Apr and, the two women who work there graduated from the same school as easy child only a couple of years before her but the manager told her he wanted her to run things. She's not comfortable coming in new and being the boss - she's only (nearly) 21 for goodness sakes! Either way, it's always nice to have two offers on the table!
