Life as a Teacher

It's not easy, but totally worth it. Sorry I have been missing in bloggy land. I have been trying to keep up with my favorite blogs, but forgetting to update and post to my own. 2 weeks ago I was really sick, like couldn't get out of bed sick. With a lot of medicine, cough drops and vitamin C, I survived lol. It was only a bad cold. :/

Well, Friday I stayed at school until 6:30. I got so much done and felt great when I left.

I was also told Friday that one of my favorite students had moved away, yet again. He was homeless and my principal told me, that's probably why he hasn't been to school in 4 days. I almost cried! He was just a great kid with so much potential. I guess I might have to get used to it being in the area that I teach in.

Anyways, I said be one of my best friends bridesmaid in her wedding! I am so excited and can't wait. This will be my first wedding that I'm in and she is such a sweetheart. I am so happy for her! I already have my dress and booked the hotel. It's not until July 2013. That's ok :)

In other news, I have been baking and cooking A LOT lately. And so far, everything has turned out great! I made this awesome taco chili, banana bread bars and chicken stroganoff in the crock pot! I can make grocery last a life time because every recipe I make is for like 4-6 people. Well, living alone I eat them for lunch and dinner so often.

Also, my mom and sister are coming into town next weekend and I couldn't be more excited!!! I was really missing home this past week, so the timing is perfect. Then, at the end of October, The Boy is coming! I never thought it would happen with his work schedule and everything. But, this time, the flight is booked and I am one happy girl!

My boys. I miss them a whole lot!

I miss them so much that I almost adopted this lil guy last weekend at PetSmart. My better judgement said not to, but it took everything in me to not! 

Yes, I'm still lonely. And still trying to figure out how to balance my 'me time' with 'work time'. Right now, it's 90% work and 10% play. I wouldn't really call it play, but more running errands, grocery shopping, paying bills, Pinteresting and cooking.

Well, I hope everyone has a great weekend.

  1. It is SO tough finding balance between work and free time, especially when you are just starting out (and when you're living by yourself!). I know it will get better for you!!

    And I don't think I would have been able to say no to that sweet dog. You definitely have will-power!
