Doctors don't call

I was in between classes this afternoon and I checked my cell and noticed that I had a missed phone call. I listened to the voicemail and I couldn't understand most of it, but it was a CPT so and so and they gave me their government cell number. My heart stopped. I knew Gunner was alive, but they always notified injuries by phone the last two deployments and I knew that Gunner was out today. I called and it was the doctor that I saw on friday telling me that I had strep. My heart started beating again. Fortunately it is the kind of strep that doesn't hurt your heart, so they don't treat it. The thought of trying to fit going to the pharmacy in somewhere was nervewracking too!

I had my first interview today and the principal and all the teachers were absolutely wonderful. They interviewed all day, and the person before me walked in with a HUGE portfolio of her lesson plans. Ummm......yeah, I don't have anything like that. I thought it went okay, and I am hopeful that they liked me, and since I made them laugh, it has to count for something, right? I was the last person to be interviewed and then they were making a decision and then it goes to HR. I am trying to be optimistic, but the glass is look half empty right now. I do have another interview on Friday too.

I dropped Em off at GS camp yesterday, and when I drove away my super shy daughter was playing in the dirt by herself. I wanted to run back there and grab her and load her back up, but she wouldn't have gone. I'm sure she is doing fine right now. Every time I worry, she comes back with wonderful stories, so I know she will be okay and will make some friend. I was/still am shy, so I understand. Not sure where Abs got her ability to talk to anything that breathes and even stuff that doesn't.

Tons to do for school. Projects are coming fast and furious. My weekend is already booked, and that's not even scheduling my group work. Thankfully my friend is my partner and has no kids, so coming over here isn't a big deal. Shoot, I better start cleaning.....

lots of lesson plans don't necessarily make a great teacher, I don't think! Good luck on Friday, I hope your glass starts looking half full soon.

Don't you remember, it's who OWNS the glass.

Oh my heart... playing in the dirt all by herself. I would have felt the same way you did too. I am shy as well, always have been, and probably always will be - at least inside.
I just pretend like I'm not... It helps :)

I wish I could go back to GS camp. I miss it!

Lesson Plans aren't all they are cook up to be. Mostly so that someone else can see how you will teach a class.

It's not always about who has the best lesson plans...sometimes it's about making them laugh or, in my case, what my sign was. Over 8 years ago, when I interviewed for this job...which has turned out to be wonderful, by the way...one of the questions my future boss asked was what birth sign I was. As I sat there with a look of confusion on my face, I told her I was a Capricorn. She smiled, and told me later that this was the main reason she hired me rather than another applicant who was much more qualified. Now if that just don't beat all..... :)
