Seriously! We are now down to the very end of the school year and Iím 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 Ė Iím pretty excited but overwhelmed! Currently I am the ONLY special education teacher in a K-12 school with 800 kids. Itís 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. Itís frustrating. Two weeks ago, I accepted a job at an elementary school. Itís K-6 with 500 students. There are 500 kiddos and 3.5 special education teachers. Iím 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 Iím ready for a new adventure.
I have a ton on my plate right now and Iím trying to take a lot of deep breaths. I havenít been to yoga for months (I feel like crap) my weight is still the same though. Iím just taking it one day at a time at this point trying to make it through! I have an unexpected roommate and Iím trying to pack up both my classroom and my house so yup, Iím a stressball.
As for the half-marathon. Well, itís not happening. Sadly, Iíve been a stress ball for the last four months and itís 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 didnít get the $7 insurance now! Iím not going to just walk it. I didnít put in the effort and I didnít train for it and I donít deserve a medal for half-a$$ing it.
Thatís it in a nutshell for right now Ė Iím alive, kicking and trying to get myself organized and breathing. A lot.
