So many of you nice friends
have been asking how my new job is going so I thought
I'd do a quick update here.
First though, my apologies to you
as I have been very neglectful on posting comments
in the last few weeks.
The job itself has many positive things.
I adore the young adults I work with.
The school itself is one of respect.
There is a more conservative code of dress
and I still haven't heard any swearing from the students (or staff) and that is so refreshing!
My superiors are amazing with the students!
Calm, cool, collected and inspiring.
This is all new to me as it was
not this way at my past school.
It is a charter school
and that means parents are highly involved.
I like that too!
On the downside...
I still don't like the commute.
However, the colors this fall are outstanding
and I am drinking them in every day!
I'm hoping most of you remember
the "Unknown Comic."
I pretty much feel like the
"Unknown Para" as the teachers
seem oblivious to me as do most
of the other paras.
I've decided it's probably something I should embrace though
as there isn't any gossiping to listen too.
Advantages in everything.
On the lighter side,
I fell going UP the stairs the other day.
Other than my pride
and a sore leg, I am fine.
The young man I work with
seems to have become MY protector.
So very sweet.
I got asked today if I'm a Grandma
(that stung a little)
and told the other day it drives one student
nuts because I am missing a tooth.
I L O V E their honesty. I really do.
They will always keep me humble.
The hardest part of being back to work is now being
the sole supporter, housekeeper, chief bottle washer
and the outdoor crew.
Just yesterday I accomplished the following:
Cleaned the kitchen, paid the bills, vacuumed, shaved my legs (TMI, sorry!), cleaned the front and back gutters, mulched the leaves, hung a bird feeder, cleaned the cat box, ironed, made supper, packed the lunch bags, grocery shopped and put the goods away, washed all of the bedding and remade the beds and well..you get the idea.
This working just gets in the way of my blogging
and Words With Friends!
Becky and the boy are still an item
so I got in my Saturday night date. Woohoo!
I've been toying with some ideas:
1) Cutting back on blogging,
2) Changing how I blog, or
3) Stopping all blogging.
I'll keep you posted.
Thanks for hanging in here with me
while I dabble at this all, for now.
And most of all...
thanks for caring.
Seems ironic that I finally hit 200 followers
and now don't have the time to commit to it.
Maybe it's a sign .
Keep bloggin' girls and guys.
I miss ya all!
