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.
