Drowning in papers…

May 18, 2011 at 10:47 pm (teaching)

Hey blog world.  I think that I am drowning in paper.  No matter where I look there are stacks of papers just waiting for my attention.  Eeeks!  A lot of it is grading that I need to do, and it is slowly getting done.  Knowing what I know about next year (know what I mean?) makes me so unmotivated to actually do anything.  Plus students are absolutely nuts right now.  Save me!

Okay, back to work.

Round and round….

May 10, 2011 at 7:06 pm (family, life, teaching) (, , )

I found out a few weeks ago that I will not be teaching at my school next year.  I knew that there was a possibility of me dropping down to 4 or 5 classes instead of full-time 6, but I didn’t expect to be told to look elsewhere.  I gotta tell you that it sure hurts.  I’ve never been let go from a job before and it’s quite a blow to the pride.  For me the hardest part is knowing that there are some amazing students here that I won’t be working with. 

Because of some comments made by my boss I no longer feel comfortable at work.  Every time I see or hear something others say, I’m paranoid.  After a sneak-attack meeting where others were able to hear what was said, I’m full of doubt about who I am and doing what I thought God has called to do.  Add the sneak-attack to a very not nice email and a pretentious, act-like-he-didn’t-say-anything attitude and I am one very guarded girl. 

And it isn’t just me!  Another teacher had something similar happen to her.  Hubby’s job just gave him a raise and a promotion, so we are staying in the area, and we love our church (for the most part) so we want to stay in the area, maybe  move closer to Hubby’s job so his commute is shorter, but now starts the job search again.  UGH!

This move hasn’t been all bad.  We moved up here a year ago and since have become much closer to some friends of ours.  Financially we are better off here because the cost of living is cheaper than where we were. We decided more on when we want to start our family, and it’s sooner than we thought!   Also, we’ve added some awesome friends to our group (YAY!).  Now if I only knew what I was going to do for a job at the end of June…

Oh, and my foot? Still in a cast. 😦

Itch, itch, itch. Scratch, scratch, scratch.

May 3, 2011 at 1:33 am (Intro)

So I’ve had my cast for 12 days now (only 10 to go!) but I just did something that I swore I never would…stuck a ruler in it to scratch the itch. 

Let’s be blunt here.  It itches.  It itches a lot, and not only does it itch, I can’t take the cast off, so scratching doesn’t really happen.  Oh, and the hair still grows…

I’ve handled the itching really well so far, but today was too much so I gave in. I’m not proud of it, but oh well.  Scratching felt good. Now if I can just get this pesky cast off. I miss driving. OH, and I really miss wearing matching shoes or any shoe on my right foot at all. I really want my shoes back.
