Other shoe?

Again, I had a fantastic weekend.
Leaves me waiting for the other shoe to drop.

Friday night I was working a show at Old Town, which you all know is my happy place. Well, now it's my VERY happy place.
I've been offered (and have accepted) a house manager position! I've been waiting and wishing and hoping and praying for this for a loooong time. I thought my best shot would be when they open the new building in January 2012. I've mentioned (and mentioned and mentioned again) that I would love to be a house manager.
And, as of August of this year, I will be one!
I'll be saying goodbye to my volunteer shifts/points etc....and will be an actual member of the Old Town Staff.  I was so excited that I couldn't fall asleep Friday night.
This is a part time weekend/evening thing, so this will be in addition to my full time real life jobby job.

Saturday morning I was out running errands when LB1 called. She asked me if I had time to run by her house.
She had been in WI last week, and had remembered that I didn't buy myself enough New Glarus beer, so she bought me a case of Spotted Cow.
Oh, did I make time to go over and pick that up!!!
So awesome. And of course, when I offered to pay for it, she would have none of it.  She really does spoil me.  I'm very lucky.

Sunday being Easter was family day.  While I do not attend Mass,  I do believe in Easter and what it stands for, and I do love the chance to spend time with people I care about.
While the people were at Mass, I cranked up some Dropkick Murphy's and baked some Pillsbury rolls and such. 
I headed upstairs to brunch the second everyone got back - my timing is amazing.
Sadly, VonDad was home sick and didn't come to brunch.  VonMom said he has a cold, but VonSis said he was really sick.  Love the downplaying, VonMom.  I dressed all cute in a new dress, fixed my hair, put on makeup.......and wore white tennis shoes.  That was specifically to piss off VonMom. Can't give too much, you know. 
I stayed upstairs until 4:00, I felt that was long enough for brunch.

I have had not one but two bagels. Ah, so glad Lent is over!!

Congratulations, Von. Nice to see all your efforts are paying off.

Yay! Congratulations, Von!!! I'm so happy for you.

I was also happy for you yesterday, when I realized you were probably eating bagels. :)

Now, onward with the cheeseburgers and trash talking of the strangers!!

Congrats on the Old Town job- it's nice to work at a place you love!

That was specifically to piss off VonMom. Can't give too much, you know.

What's mom got against tennis?

Give Jonboy Langford a big ol kiss from me.

Von said...

Thanks all! I am SO excited, and I cannot wait to get started!!
Z - I saw him Friday night, he came to the Mighty Sparrow/Calypso Rose show. I said "Hi Jon" he said "Hello you!" I know he barely remembers me, but that's ok.

If any of you are even in Lincoln Square, make sure to stop by my job#2, OLD TOWN SCHOOL OF FOLK MUSIC!!
Squee, I am SO excited.

EL will hopefully be taking a tap class there this summer.

Interestingly, well to me at least, iTunes is throwing up a lot of Langford and Waco Brothers music today.
