Gratitudes for May 31:
1. that the Corning Free Academy closing ceremony was really wonder*full last night. Lauren Frazer and Amy Smaldone have so much to be proud of.
2. for something work related about which I can't post details.
3. that I got to see my friend Bernie Baldini.
4. for a long snuggle with the Rachmonster this morning.
5. for the idea about the VA jobs. If I can take one or two of those, work them for a period of so many weeks or whatever, and make some money, I can pay our bills and get us out of the hole, and then save up for my training, hotel, and meals for training.
