I Am Working

Oh my, what have I gotten myself into? I ask myself that often right now. No really, I was asked back at the beginning of the school year if I would be willing to sub at Bay Pre-k while one girl was off on maternity leave for only 6 weeks. I thought about it for a couple of days and finally said yes! Well, she had her baby early Tuesday morning. The 6 weeks turned into 8 weeks because she had to have a c-section. Yeah me!! My thought was, 2 more weeks of pay! So I go from being a stay at home mom to a full time employed mom! What a change this is for me. I have not worked a full time job since Lexi was 2!! Can you believe that? Lexi is now 11 (preteen, a whole other story!). That is a long time! I went to bed at 7:30 on Tuesday night and that was my first day of work! No more having to watch TV until I get sleepy, I go right to sleep when my head hits the pillow! I am really enjoying it! The kids are great! I will be so attached to them by the end of the 8 weeks that I won't want to leave them. Just remember me in your prayers please!

My kids are doing great! Lexi is still doing piano lessons and as most of you noticed, she talked her daddy Aaron (biological father) into signing up for facebook so they could stay in touch more often. I think it is great for her. Allison is doing great in school, her nine weeks report card showed every grade impoved! Bradley, oh Bradley, lets see........he has a birthday coming up and will be turning 5 years old! WOW! He goes to the Bay Pre-K where I sub, but he is not in my class. That is a good thing! You mothers know what I'm talking about!

Jeff is doing good with his college work. He tries to include me but no way! It is very challenging for him but that is good (at least I think so). We love and miss everyone! By for now.

New Years and Christmas at Mom's or Not

Well, I was going to post some pictures from our Christmas on here, but they won't download. ERROR!!! I hate that!!! Our New Years was very peaceful. We watched movies with the kids and were in bed before 10:30!! We really enjoyed ourselves, believe or not! I know, some of you are probably saying, how boring, but not for us!
On the last post I did mention that the kids and I were going to meet Jeff at the library and the kids were going to watch Kung Fu Panda, and we did that and they enjoyed it very much. Jeff and I got to visit and read magazines and stuff.
I am not going to write any more than this because I am not sure that this is going to even post my stuff. It might be a day or so before I can try this again, so bear with me. I worked at Bay Pre-K today and will work there again tomorrow. I am also signed up at sub-teach for Bay Elem., so no tellin' when I will get called to do that. I am enjoying it though!! Catch ya later!
