Where does the time go?
Thursday, May 16, 2013
Seriously! We are now down to the very end of the school year and I’m scrambling to get everything done that I need to as well as pack up my room to move to Cheyenne. I will feel a lot better as soon as the contract arrives and I am good to go to teach in Wyoming.
So yes, I got a job in Cheyenne – I’m pretty excited but overwhelmed! Currently I am the ONLY special education teacher in a K-12 school with 800 kids. It’s a little daunting. It keeps me on my toes. I feel defeated for not being able to do more for my students. I love it. It’s frustrating. Two weeks ago, I accepted a job at an elementary school. It’s K-6 with 500 students. There are 500 kiddos and 3.5 special education teachers. I’m not going to know what to do with myself. A team! People to help! My own room. I know there are going to be a lot of challenges but I’m ready for a new adventure.
I have a ton on my plate right now and I’m trying to take a lot of deep breaths. I haven’t been to yoga for months (I feel like crap) my weight is still the same though. I’m just taking it one day at a time at this point trying to make it through! I have an unexpected roommate and I’m trying to pack up both my classroom and my house so yup, I’m a stressball.
As for the half-marathon. Well, it’s not happening. Sadly, I’ve been a stress ball for the last four months and it’s taken all of my energy just to keep afloat at work and in my personal life. So it will have to wait. Sad that I didn’t get the $7 insurance now! I’m not going to just walk it. I didn’t put in the effort and I didn’t train for it and I don’t deserve a medal for half-a$$ing it.
That’s it in a nutshell for right now – I’m alive, kicking and trying to get myself organized and breathing. A lot.
