Sorry for the lack of posting for you few loyal followers, although working just about 6 hours a day, the change in schedule has really thrown me!
My new job is going really well so far, and I think I'm really going to enjoy it. From 12:00-3:00, I love it! I get to stay busy and work with lots of really great kids. It really makes me miss teaching even more, but this job will give me that, so it's worth it for a few more months. From 3:00-5:30 though, I work this VERY boring after school program. Basically, the school is losing money doing it, because they have to have 2 teachers there for safety reasons, and there are usually only about 3-4 kids. We help them do their homework, give them a snack, then just watch them play. Although the kids are great, it kind of makes me want to scream. I just keep telling myself that it's all for the "real" job next year!
For those of you who are wondering, I am still working at the Crew. Instead of working my previous one night a week from 4-8 p.m., I'm now working one morning a week from 7-11:45 a.m. I'm so glad I was still able to keep this job because the more I thought about it, I just wasn't really ready to pay full retail for J. Crew again, and end up only getting about 1/3 of the clothes I'm buying now!
Today, I lucked out because our school wasn't getting any water, so they had to close!!! What's better than a snow no-water day on a Friday?? I plan to spend the day catching up on laundry, cleaning, and playing with the pups. I promise, a more exciting post a little later on!
