It's Friday! Hallelujah! I survived my first full week of subbing! After my tough day on Tuesday my week got a lot better! I had easy jr high and high school assignments from then on and I also learned a very valuable lesson: elementary school is soo not my style! At first I thought I must be some kind of evil grinch to dislike teaching young kids as much as I do, but after several convos with other non-elementary teaching instructors, I found that you are either a hearts, rainbows and hugs kind of person or you're not. I am not. Good to know. Moving on.

I do want to thank all of you ladies for your sweet comments, however! Going back to work "full time" was sort of a shock to me, since I had gotten used to living the easy life working for a boss who let me work 10am-4:30pm days with long lunches in between. Oh how I miss staying up late into the evening watching all the trash tv I can handle and waking up naturally instead of to the sound of my escalating "Alarm-Antelope" Blackberry ringtone. Ha, just listen to me...complaining about a teacher's schedule of summers off and holidays galore! Including MLK Day! Woohoo! 3 day weekend here I come! Maybe my new schedule isn't so bad after all! Mason and I are going to our fav sushi restaurant tonight to treat ourselves since we both had rough weeks! I hope you all have a great weekend and thanks again for all of your well wishes! :)
