I've now, finally, finished my first day of work on Tuesday, and it was lots of fun. There are 14 kids, some of which we pick up from school and bring back to the church. So I'm going to be working Tues, Thurs, Sat, and occasionally Sundays. The schedule with the kids is pretty easy, they have snack time when they get there, then they do their homework and play for awhile, then it's reading time, and at they end they do arts and crafts. It's a pretty cool program and I really like the other two women I'm going to be mainly working with.

Repairs on the house are going really well, I finished staining the deck and we should be having the stone put up on the house while we're gone for Thanksgiving. And of course I'm going to be in Charleston for Thanksgiving!

So I've spent all day staining my parents deck. I haven't gotten very far, just the top part, and I've already gone through at least 7 gallons of stain. I get to try to finish it tomorrow, or the next day, or whenever I finish. I just know that I'm going to need more money to be able to buy more stain, because we only 3 gallons left and our neighbors said that they use at least 25 gallons, and his deck is much smaller than ours. So needless to say, I'm going to be staining for quite awhile.

I got to watch my first Clemson football game this season, and Hooray! We beat FSU 40-24. It was awesome! I even busted out my Clemson pants, since I can't find any of my Clemson shirts. Hooray for a Clemson win!

Today was a very good day in the state of Oklahoma.

I managed to finally get my driver's license for only $25.50, not expecting that. I also got a job offer, for a job that I interviewed for at a local Presbyterian church. For that, I'd be working for 3 hours in their afterschool program tutoring and playing with local kids. I've also registered for an EMT course at Oklahoma City Community College to start in January. And I have my library card, which I got well before my driver's license. Even better, I have a girl's night out planned for this Friday! Hooray! I'm finally going to have people to hang out with.
