recent adventures

Please forgive me for being MIA recently. I have been subbing and tutoring and nannying and doing other odd jobs. I have barely had any time to get on here!

This week I did 3 days subbing in Kindergarten. Lets just say I forgot how exhausting it is to be in a classroom chasing after 24 five year olds all day… I lost my voice more times than I can count. I got compliments on my shoes, hair, necklace, and shirt. I had a student point at my double chin and tell me it looks like I have a gobbler like a turkey. Oh kids…they say the darndest things…

I went shopping this weekend and got a huge steal on shoes 3 pairs of flats for $36 gotta love payless!!

I love subbing but I now have an internal alarm clock of 5:25am to listen for my phone (not fun!)

I have been tutoring a fifth grader who is doing all of the common core tests right now and those things are BRUTAL. He is doing great though. Two sessions in and I am already seeing a major improvement!

Tonight I am going to a bar to play bingo with one of my friends. I am VERY excited to get out and do something (not involving children)!

 

This is going to be my year!

I have had a very exciting week. I went on that job interview on Friday. It went so well! The Assistant Principal was such a sweetheart! We talked and she looked over my teaching portfolio. She loved it! As I was leaving she told me I interview very well and I am on a great path. She told me candidates would hear back in about a month. Well on Monday my phone rang…I GOT THE JOB!!!! I am now a per diem substitute teacher! I can not explain how excited I am. I really did not think it was going to happen! I am sure there will be a lot of posts about my experiences being a sub.

I also went for one of the many required tests that I needed to have done for my weight loss surgery. I have a lot of different things that affect my ability to lose weight on my own one being P.C.O.S. to spare anyone the gory details I added a link. Basically my body has issues with my hormones. So once I gain weight it is kind of just stuck there. I have dieted and worked out and nothing seems to work so this is my last resort. It is a decision that I have made with the support of my family and a lot of doctors. I have been waiting for this surgery for almost 7 years. I hate the way I look and I am uncomfortable in my own skin. I have had people tell me that I am taking the easy way out but trust me there is nothing about this that is easy. I have opted for the sleeve gastrectomy They will basically be removing 80% of my stomach. I will be on a liquid diet for 3-4 weeks before surgery. After surgery I will be on a liquid diet for about 6 weeks then I can start introducing foods back into my body little by little. There are things I will have to avoid for the rest of my life. However I am extremely optimistic about it all!

I had my first test on Monday. It was psych evaluation I was so nervous because I hate having to talk about my feelings but my doctor was fabulous and made me feel really comfortable! Before I left he told me it is going to be my year. So I am going to keep this positive attitude going….THIS IS MY YEAR!
