Ahh.. Well, I just got a job being a substitute aide in the school district here where I live. And well, yesterday was my first day on the job. Yippee!! I was so excited and nervous all at the same time. They don't give ya much time to get ready and be there, but .. I made it! So I get to the school and check in at the ofice, They tell me what class I'm going to and...... Ready for this one? I was woking with the autistic kids! It was AMAZING!!!! They were such a great group... We got to watch movies, help with their homework,cut and paste, we went to an assembly, computer lab, and then off to the 1st grade classroom. There were very little outbursts, but the teacher said, everyday is different! I did tell her, if they ever need me to come back, I will.... It was fun!

They called again this morning for a sub, but Paige has a Dr's appt and hubby has a job interview.So, right now those 2 are more important. As a sub, there's really no schedule! Woo-Hoo!!! Plus, I am in school from 6pm to 10 pm studying to be a MA. UGH!!! I may have bitten off more than I can chew. But I love hectic!! LOL

Hope ya'll have a great day!!

Feb. 1, 2008 at 8:13 PM You know, your stronger than you realize and you'll pull through just fine. I know it can be very discouraging sometimes because there never seems to be enough time in the day to get everything done. Just think about what is a priority to you and your family and what will benefit you all. Sometimes you may have to say no to some things and just take a break to regather yourself.  As women we tend to feel the need to be super woman and do everything,... but we need breaks too. So don't run yourself down.
