You know, sometimes I just don't feel like blogging.
Still, I feel the need to compose an update to this entry from February 24th.
2.5 weeks after the above post, I found out about a job opening at a local school. I applied. I had an interview a week later. Four days after that, I got a call that I'd gotten the job.
The following Monday, the job began.
Two things to note:
1. I've actually worked at this school before. Half the staff is different now, and only the 5th grade students have a ring of familiarity (they were in Kindergarten when I worked there five years ago), but it's funny because I feel like I've just slipped back in to my old groove.
--This can feel a bit wrong, too... as if I'm taking a step backwards in life.
--But deep down inside I feel at peace
that this is where I'm supposed to be right now.*
2. I had already agreed to work/teach at this after-school program at a 2nd school, before I got this job. So each day I work 6 hours at one job and then drive over and do 2 hours at another job. And it's exhausting.
Which may explain why I haven't blogged much.
I do want to say that I am happy... even though some of my students drive. me. nuts. I'm happy because I have a job, it's something I know how to do, and it's something I'm comfortable doing. I don't expect to do it forever, but then... who knows?
Meanwhile, a picture of my favorite dog....
And favorite baby....
Life is good.
