what to do?

We have been in Naples for two full months, now, and it has been wonderful. But, we are having a problem. We have not been able to settle in, yet. We found out today that our house did not pass the safety inspection, so the landlords need to do some more work to it before we can move in. Great. Another delay. Bummer.

That's not what I want to talk about today, though.

Yesterday, we went on a little adventure and drove into the heart of the city of Naples, which has been described as "nuts," "a different reality," "chaotic," "man-eat-man," and "pure crazy!" (I'll have to tell you about driving here another time, because that's not what I want to talk about today, either). We ventured there so that I could go to a job interview at a small, private language school. It turns out that they would like for me to teach English there. They'll even let me set my own hours and work as much or as little as I want. Sounds great, huh? Here's the rub: I would have to get to work everyday without dying and I still have no idea what sort of school/childcare is available near our house because we haven't been living there. Many things would have to fall into place for me to be able to take this job, such as: finding a good place to care for and teach Graham, a good public transportation system, and, and, and, well, I guess that's about it.

Daniella, the gorgeous Italian woman who founded the school, called me today and asked if I'd like to work for her.

I told her yes.


  1. How wonderful! I am so excited for you. What an amazing opportunity. Can't wait to hear more about it. I know I owe you an email. It is coming. We miss you more and more each day. - Megan

  2. Congrats on the job opportunity! That sounds great. You'll have to be sure to teach a little Star Valley twang in your English lessons. :)
