Sometimes you just need to vent a little. This is mainly for me and to remind myself how "wonderful" my week has been, so I can come back to this post in a few weeks and laugh.
1. Being a teacher can be very rewarding, but very stressful as well. I am glad that my class makes me giggle. They say the funniest things, and thank goodness for that! Their sense of humor always gets me through the day! I love my little class.
2. The fact that I was at work at 7:45 this morning and had to go straight to my ESL class after school-getting home at 7:30 tonight. I don't like long work days, BUT I am learning some interesting things in my ESL class. I miss learning in college so to me, it's kind of fun to keep learning and to interact with other teachers. :)
3. Not feeling too great on Monday (girl stuff) and random people asking me if I'm pregnant. Really? I just got married. Come on people.
Enough venting for tonight. Oh I feel so good. I don't think I can sleep without talking about the good things that happened this week though...
1. An amazing husband. Yesterday I came home from a stressful work day/week and went to spin class. As I was driving home, I was worried about all the homework I had to finish for my ESL class and what I was going to cook for dinner. As I walked in the door, my awesome husband is standing there, an oven mitt on each hand, table set, and dinner all ready. I am so thankful for a husband who knows when his wife needs a little TLC!
2. A butt kickin' spin class last night. There's no better way, (well I think anyway) to end the day with a hard workout to burn off the stress. It hurts so good!
3. I am thankful for a new year. Jake and I have made many great new goals for 2011-and no they don't involve having kids. Sorry. I have to say it because people ask me questions like that. I teach school and I'm around kids all day. Isn't that enough? I don't know if it can beat 2010 though. New job, new house, new marriage, awesome husband? What can be better than that?!
4. Three-day weekend. Thank you MLK! I found this video and it made me a bit emotional. I couldn't imagine living in a time where blacks and whites couldn't drink out of the same fountain, use the same bathroom, eat in the same restaurant, etc. If you haven't read the book The Help I highly recommend it. It's about African American maids working in white households in the early 1960s. Definitely a "feel good" book.
