Last week was my first week without teaching online! It felt really good. Even though lately I've only been teaching 1 hour a day it's still one less thing for me to think about. Plus I can sleep in an extra hour. I love that I'm not teaching online or coaching anymore. It feels good to just do one job. Speaking of, I think I've decided to just go ahead and take the job I've been subbing for. It's not something I could do long term but I think I can do it for a few months. I mostly have to manage my boredom. I like being busy. I'd rather scrub toilets than sit and do nothing but I've gotten more used to it. I talked to the teacher and asked if they would hire me knowing that I'm looking for a teaching job and will quit if I find one. She said they would be happy to have me as long as they could. It's not official yet, I need to do a formal interview tomorrow. Since I'm only doing 1 job I want to do it full time and I don't know if I would have the discipline to sub everyday. It's too easy to just cancel or not take a job. Doing this para job will commit me to working 5 days a week like I want to. Plus the devil you know is better than the unknown. Subbing can be very stressful. I never know what I'm going to get and I hate figuring out the lesson plans and I ALWAYS have to improvise because the plans aren't good enough. It would be great if this job would get me a teaching job at Centennial. I would love to work at the same school as my kids. I'm getting ahead of myself. Anyway, so para job here I come.
Corbin had a band concert on Thursday night. I like the style of this teacher she only does one grade at a time and it's short and sweet. It's great! I'm so impressed with someone who can teach 6th graders how to play in a band.
I've been staining my frame for my bathroom mirror. It's almost done.
Scott has been working hard in the shed. He added window frames, door frames, baseboards, and blinds. He needs to hook up the Ethernet cord to the TV and put down the baseboards by the TV and he's done. I will need to paint the baseboards. I can't paint the door until the weather is a bit better. But basically we are done! We LOVE it!
That's about all the happenings around here. I'm nervous to start working full time but I'm glad I get to warm up to full time with a job where I have zero responsibilities outside of work. It will help me establish a routine and get used to the rigorous schedule before I add teaching where I'll also be dealing with lesson plans, grading, students, parents and all the things!
