Goings On

Just wanted to pop in and say hi here! It has been a whirlwind of a few weeks here. Audrey got sick last week and I spent two days home with her as she recovered. It was nice to spend two days home alone with just her snuggling on the couch and watching Dora the Explorer (although I was insane from Dora by the end of the second day!). It was nice though to spend some time with her alone.

I went back to work on Thursday to get called into the Principal's office and told that I would not have a job at my school for next year. I have been surplussed. I now have to update my resume and interview at different schools in Cincinnati Public Schools. I am guaranteed a job in CPS at this point unless the district starts to cut more money and more jobs and then I may not have a job in the school district I have worked for my entire professional career! I have been here for 14 years! In a way I am glad that this has happened, it has given me a kick in the butt to go out and find something that I may be happier in. That may be a new school within the Cincinnati Public School District or that may be a job outside the inner city. I have options. I have to be proactive and go out and find something that is going to make me happy. I don't want to just settle to have a job. I would ideally like to get out of teaching altogether but unfortunately that is not in the cards for me! Bills to pay suck!! Some day!

To add to the black cloud hanging over me, I broke a wisdom tooth this past weekend and I had to have oral surgery to get all four wisdom teeth pulled out! Needless to say I was not happy! I know people have this done every day but I was honestly scared out of my mind! I try to play tough guy and in my brother's words, I tried to "Man Up"! But I was scared to death! The last time I went under general anesthesia it was a result of complications in my pregnancy and spent 3 days in ICU. So as you can see, I was pretty scared to go under again. You have no idea how excited I was when the nurse came in and woke me up! I spent the day in bed cuddling up and I am glad to say that I am not in too much pain! I am so glad for that!

I am hoping that this black cloud is now gone and we can get back on our happy road! Kayla will be competeing in Saturday in her first dance competition of the season! She will only be dancing 4 of her 7 numbers which works out fine, get those nerves out now! I am looking forward to spending the day watching her and her teammates dance!

Also looking forward to a 3 day weekend with my girls!! Hoping that at some point I can get a few scrapbook pages wrapped up that have been laying on my desk for several weeks waiting for me to get back to them!! I will post them soon!

Thanks for stopping by!
