I bet you're
all wondering what the heck my title means.
I am here to explain!
I made it through my first week
back to work. Maybe I should say I barely made it!
The first day, upon entering what I thought was the school parking lot, I suddenly realized I was on a one way street,
going the wrong way!
I made it without incident but it was heart pounding to say the least.
I met up with the boy I'm working with and was
eager to get on to his first class.
He headed in one direction, I headed in the other!
We were a little late but we did make it to class.
He and I have done very well getting to know each other
and have built a nice rapport these last few days.
He has a great sense of humor and loves
"to get me!" He will keep me on my toes but I like that.
A good sense of humor is always plus.
On the negative side...
I am spoiled and I detest the 30 minute commute each way.
Within 3 days, I caught "the" cold. It never ceases
to amaze me how quickly I get sick, once I return to school.
I've met lots of people yet
I don't know anyone.
It's a rather solitary type of position.
All of the kids are darling and charming although
some have violent tendencies. I may be too old
for this job. Time will tell.
I was so excited that the school has stairs...
a great form of exercise.
My knees hurt but I'll up the fish oil.
It's a Charter School
and it is R E F R E S H I N G!
In 4 days, I have not heard even ONE
swear word! So unlike public school!
Lot's to get used to,
especially trying to find
a new routine.
Such a sweet, sweet surprise in having
some of you emailing me to check on me.
To think a few of you missed me
just about had me in tears.
This is what I probably miss the most...
my morning walks.
He does too.
My kitty misses me too.
He's been after me all morning.
And Becky does too.
But it's all good.
One day at a time.
It's all any of us can do.
