GREAT Weekend cancels out my BAD week!

Back to the grind after a FAB weekend, and boy did I need it (more on that drama in just a few...)!

We kicked off the weekend by heading to Belton (45 mins north of Austin) to go see the ZZ TOP concert. Mase grew up with the drummer of ZZ TOP's twin sons so we got the hook up! Great seats, backstage passes, and Frank Beard (the drummer) autographed some of his drumsticks for us. Sweet! We stayed the night in Belton then headed back to D town Saturday afternoon.
Saturday night, we tried out a new restaurant/bar called J Black's on Henderson. They have one in Austin too and it is a nice addition to the Dallas nightlife scene. Approve.

Then Sunday, our friend Adrian and two of her guy friends, had a joint birthday party at this place called Backyard Beach Bar. Sand Volleyball, a pool AND a full bar... me likey! I think I found we're I'll be hanging out this summer! ;) Happy Birthday Adrian!!

It was a very eventful and fun weekend, which was definitely in order after the major stress week I had at school!


So Thursday morning I get to school early and the teacher I have been long-term subbing for (who is supposed to be on disability leave for the rest of the school year) shows up to my room unannounced, looks around and then demands to know where her personal things are. Umm, how about a nice to meet you or thanks for taking over my classes for me....

So then I get informed at the end of the day by our principal that she has come to reclaim her job and I am getting the boot because they have nowhere to put me. That means no job for me for the last 3 weeks of school. Not to mention I will not get to finish out the year with the kids who I have grown so close to! Major sads!

I did get lucky though. On Friday, a position opened up for me to sub in at our school as the Tech Computer Lab teacher for the rest of the year. I pretty much have no clue what I'm doing in there, but we're down to 13 more days so we'll survive. The important thing is that I will continue to be paid until the end of the year. I get a little sad though seeing my 6th graders in the hall, especially when they tell me how much they miss me!

So anyway, big time drama going on! Glad school is almost out, I need a break!


  1. Oh.my.goodness! That is crazy! How rude of her! Glad you were able to find another job for the rest of the school year :)

  2. Glad you had a nice weekend and found another sub job but that teacher does seem like a bitch! I don't get how she could just show up like that with no notice!

  3. What a crappy situation! She sounds like a real witch. Maybe you'll like computer class, and this will give you good experience..

    I'm taking the library media specialist praxis this summer..I'm anticipating failure. I heard it was awful.
