IT DOESN’T WORK THAT WAY.
IT DOESN’T WORK THAT WAY.
I teach preschool in a 3-4 year old classroom. I’m new to the school this year, and would have rather taught Kindergarten, but the 3-4 year olds are what was available, so I took the job (it’s a really great school with great pay). I have a masters degree in education, and I’m a certified teacher. Taught kindergarten for 5 years before this job. Bascially, the only reason I left my old job is because my SO moved for a job, and begged me to follow him, promising that he would propose soon. The children I teach are supposed to be potty trained, but I am literally cleaning up shit once or twice a day. There is also a child in my class who throws hour long screaming fits/tantrums. I love little children, I love three/four year olds, but this sucks. I’m in my classroom all day without any breaks, while teachers of older students get breaks for lunch and planning periods. On top of that, the school expects me to go back to school and get certified in gifted education. Gifted? So that I can continue to clean up shit and deal with tantruming kids? Please do not feel the need to give me advice on this kid and his tantruming. Trust me, I’ve tried every trick in the book. Seriously. Something is wrong with this child, and his parents refuse to acknowledge it. We have had a child specialist/psycologist out to see him, and the school required that he start getting picked up before noon because even the most experienced/ edcuated teachers couldn’t handle him. I signed a contract for one more year, because I need the job, but make damn well sure that if things go next year like they did this year, I am OUT OF HERE. On top of that, SO still has not proposed. Promises it is coming in the next couple of months. And if it doesnt, I’m gone pecan.
It’s cold out. It’s almost April and I do not want to wear my winter coat anymore.
I have to work 10-hour days all week so I can take Friday off to go skiing. Why can’t I just get days off for no reason?!
My first choice caterer keeps taking FOR.EV.ER to get back to me. I waited two weeks for my price quote to come in, I replied to that email and asked a couple of extra questions, and we’re now two days away from that being ten days ago, and I haven’t heard a thing. They weren’t even difficult questions! I know they’re busy because they cater a lot and they’ve got their restaurant to take care of, but really, averaging ten days or so to reply to emails?! <br />On the plus side, that’s the only complaint that comes to mind at the moment, so I’d say I’m doing pretty good.
Uhh…where to start….not a very good tuesday….
-I just got a message from my boss that I am not getting to move up to dayshift AGAIN…for the 4th schedule in a row….I love my boss and I ADORE my co-workers….I have been working at my current job for 7 months almost….with the undersanding that I would be moved to dayshift by this point and that is why I said yes to the job and ended up loving it….and my co-workers….but my frustration was I was promised day shift after 4 months…and here i sit getting ready for another night shift…..it was supposed to be until new grads were trained fully from the 1 year training program….ended in jan….but was told i was getting moved on the “next schedule” starting in december…nights arent horrible i just am taking to many meds so i can sleep (only melatonin)but still i have chronic migraines from lack of sleep…and i dont see Fiance whom i live with for half the week because of scheudlues….
-We finally got a return call from our old photographer whom we havent heard from since feb…who finally told me hed double booked for our date and the other one was apparently a big spender so since we booked like a week apart she paid half of his most expensive package upfront and he just “hadnt gotten around to bringing it up”….on the upside i get my $200 deposit back…
-My dad is being a jerk…hes still not happy that i decided to take a job and educational oppertunity and move….to the area he didnt pick….when where he wanted me to go is actually 3 hrs further away from them…but he didnt pick here so i am apparently being irresponsible almost 8 months later…
-I am in the midst of the biggest acne break out of my adult life….my face looks like a pizza….
-my Fiance is now getting ready to start planting so that means I will really not see him when i work stretches….and we wont have weekends off together anymore….which is how its been for our entire relationship during planting and harvest and we make it work…but we are getting into the parts of planning that i really want him around for…but such is life…
-My Biggest problem right now is with myself…I have lost 25lbs…and I am stressing that i havent lost more….BUT I also am having a RAGING case of baby fever like its horrible….I need to be working out and planning the wedding but i am on here stalking the baby threads…thinking about nursery decor….and sadly looking at carseats…..I have baby names and everything…and I keep dreaming that i am preggers…which I am not….I freaked myself so much i took 2 tests…. -FI is NOT Helping my baby fever at all….hes been pitching names for a week…he even brought up that he found a great deal on a crib and nursey set….and that his uncle has these hand made rocking chairs that he wants to give us when we have a baby….and how excited he is that we have decided to be team green when we are pregger and he has an anouncement thought out for which ever we have boy or girl WE ARENT EVEN PREGNANT OR TTC!! soo not helping baby fever…. wow i feel better…even though my problems arent really problems just gripes and complaints…..
Ahhhh let’s see:
-it’s only Tuesday and I can tell this afternoon will be slow
-I wore my hair up today and now it hurts
-I have dishes to do when I get home, one of which is the waffle maker which I HATE cleaning
I hope you get your day shifts soon! We keep thinking, life will be so cush when he works days in the town we live in! Someday….
I’m exhausted and it’s only Tuesday. DH has been working now 16 days in a row for his company open house (setting up machines, programming, designing a new part), so I haven’t seen him much, and when I do he’s exhausted. Today is the first day and I took the 2 kids I nanny for in to look, and we were asked to leave after 20 minutes bc of safety…it would have been nice to know that kids weren’t welcome before we got there…
Well, thank God SOMEONE wants to listen to me complain.
On Sunday, hubby & I went to look at new houses by a local builder, just out of curiosity & because I wanted to. We aren’t rich by any means, but they DO have a range of prices & IMO (maybe I’m ignorant) we could afford one of the lower-end ones. Sure, it would be stretching our budget & we couldn’t be all willy-nilly with money in our free time anymore (which would mean I would need to curb my Target addiction) but we COULD do it, I know we could. So anyways, we spend 3 hours listening to info & touring houses & of course I fell in love. Now whether it’s with the house or the IDEA of the house, I’m not sure honestly, but the neighborhood is FANTASTIC, the house WOULD BE BRAND NEW (as opposed to the 1950’s shoe box I currently reside in, where evil demon bugs jump on me each time I go out to the garage to do laundry) & OMG I would have not one but TWO bathrooms, 3 BEDROOMS & an INDOOR BUG FREE LAUNDRY ROOM. Oh & did I mention everything would be BRAND NEW?! As in, never even been farted in NEW!? Yeah, so last night I asked him what he thought of the houses after having time to consider & he said flatly “I don’t like them.” UM. What why?! “The floor plan is too small for the money.” OK, dream-killer. Thanks for allowing me to salivate for THREE HOURS Sunday, only to basically tell me you hate the house & we can’t afford it anyways. So we’ve been arguing since last night, & it got pretty bad actually. Words were said, feelings were hurt, & cookies & French fries were eaten. That was me.
Getting married on Saturday and we’re at each other’s throats–both exhibiting major symptoms of cold feet. Almost feeling like it’s not going to happen.
