A Miracle!

         After spending an eternity three decades four years at college plus an internship, my son has landed a job.

         The next time I go to Taco Bell, he will be the the one making my burrito...

         Just kidding. He got a job in his field (music therapy) at a state mental health facility about 5 hours away from home. And although soon (within the month) I will have to deal with a completely empty nest, there will have to be some celebrating in the meantime.  

          When he was little, and even into his teenaged years, he could eat a whole batch of macaroni and cheese by himself.  And he had it several times a week. (He would have chowed down on it every day if we had allowed it.)

        After his first interview, I told him that when he became employed, we would go to Sweetie Pie's.  It's a soul food restaurant in St. Louis and has been voted as having the best macaroni and cheese in town.

         Now I can rest a little easier knowing he's not going to California or Minnesota or Vermont. At least not yet...


  1. Hi Sioux,
    What great news!
    Congratulations to you and your son.

  2. I want to go to Sweetie Pie's, too! (and a Cardinals game!)

  3. What a relief for you. It sounds like an interesting job. I'm sure some good stories will come from it.

  4. Yeah, congratulations to everyone!

  5. Hi Ms. Roslawski!
    It's been almost 6-7 years so I don't know if you remember me, but you randomly stumbled across my train of thought today. :)
    Hehe, I googled your name out of curiosity to see if you still worked at Griffith and I saw your blogspot! I guess adults AREN'T technology-illiterate then, huh? (Jokes, jokes.)

    Anyways, I just wanted to tell you that I'm glad you're still into your writing. I am too. But without you and Ms. Murray, I haven't been as motivated. I try to balance work, school, and a social life.. so it's kind of hard to find time.

    I do dabble a bit now and then. When I write essays or poems for English class, my teachers are usually very impressed. It's all thanks to you guys. You saw a talent in me I didn't know I had!

    Anyways, before I go any further, I hope we can catch up sometime. I'll be checking again! ^_^

  6. Kendra--Of course I remember you. Did you move? If you did, you're lucky...The Davis' house got a lot of damage in the tornado right before Easter.

    Please email me at I'd love to hear more from you, and I know Mrs. Murray would, too.

  7. Congrats to your son! It is so lovely when they successfully launch. (We have two out of the nest and one to go.) Music therapy sounds amazing---I'd like to hear more about it. *hint hint* That might be a great blog post. *hint hint* :)

  8. Yay!! I'm so excited for your son! And I know you are a very happy and proud, mom!! Congrats!!

  9. Congratulations to your son! Enjoy the mac-n- cheese send-off.

  10. Congratulations to *your* sweetie pie!!!
