moments of insanity

Today, I thought I would go crazy. I thought I would lose my mind. I was going to pull out all of my hair. I was going to strangle someone...or something. I was going to scream. I was going to explode. Whew. It was a crazy day full of many moments of insanity. I was put in charge of the two year old class because both of the teachers were out sick. Yeah, I've only been in that class subbing for the past 3 4. Yeah, not my idea of fun. They have a super hard time listening. There is a lot of screaming, hitting, and crying, and times where I truly believe all of the children are deaf. Because they do not like to listen when I call their names to say...come go potty, clean up that center, don't hit her/him, don't eat rocks/crayons/whatever it is they may put in their mouths...and on and on. Wow, it was super crazy. Yeah, then one of my kids threw up. Yes, fun stuff. Good times. So lots of poop and the smell of throw up. Needless to say, when I went home for my break I didn't want to go back. In fact, I was ready to quit. Wow, thank goodness I got through. By a miracle from God, I made it through. I hope tomorrow is a better day. I mean it will be a new day, but I just hope no barfing kids. :)

--"Meteor Shower"--

I can finally see,
That you're right there beside me,
I am my not own,
For I have been made new
Please don't let me go,
I desperately need you

I am not my own,

a review of my first week on the job--

I'm quite sure you are all so excited to hear all about my first week of work. So where to start. I guess the beginning. I worked Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday in the pre-k 4's class. I got to know all the kids in there and had finally begun to bond when I was put in the 5's on Thursday. Yeah, not so happy about that one and I'm pretty sure my face said it all when my boss told me she was putting me in there. They had 26 kids until 3 pm then they added 3 more! YIKES! Those fives will drive you absolutely insane because they are loud, and do not like to listen. There were some that had their sweet moments, and I guess all in all kids will be kids. But there were definitely some super cuties. There's a boy in there who reminds me of Spanky from Little Rascals. He has this little southern accent and he's so grown up. He's precious, and I wanted to take him home with me! Hahaha. Then there was another little boy who reminds me of Ralphie from A Christmas Story, he was a cutie, but no takey home with me. He was a MESS! But then today[Friday] I was put in the 3's class. How precious they are. Still messes, and they can get loud, but I enjoyed it so much more than the 5's. Although, I did love my 4's....they just have the funniest personalities! So that's about it for the first week. It's definitely going to be very interesting. We'll see how working with all the people there works out. I'm typically a peacekeeper kinda person, and I don't want to mess with things or make people feel threatened. I guess in a way I feel left out because I don't know how everything works and I haven't been working with these people for a long period of time. The one person who I love to see everyday is Ashley. Maybe, just maybe, we'll get put into the same classroom...once the director figures out that the other teacher may not be right for the classroom. Idk. The 3's are probably going to be my place come January when one of the teachers leave, so yeah. But I liked them. There are some super cuties in there, and I love the fact that some of the kids are bilingual! So cool.

So yeah....that was my life this past week. I was super busy all day then I had stuff going on every night except last night and tonight. THANK GOODNESS! I need "me" time. For real. I get tired of being around people[adults, teens, kids] all day. I also enjoy talking to adults[aka my friends and my family at home] because I don't get a lot of adult-like conversations during the day. Haha. I'm really excited about this weekend. Alicia is coming to visit me tomorrow and we're gonna hang out for the day. Sunday is the launch of the new service, although, I do have some choice words, but will refrain from mentioning those words. It's going to be a busy weekend with another busy week next week. I'm looking forward to Thanksgiving vacation! :) I'm also hoping I don't get the flu. I feel like I'm turning into an "older" person. I go to bed at 10, get up at 6, work out, come home and get ready for work--take my vitamins[lol], go to work from 9-6, then come home and have various activities every night. Two of my nights consist of commitments at 6:30. I have basically zero time. Weekends are going to be treasured....and ESPECIALLY sleeping in.

---sorry for the ramble of nonsense that probably doesn't even make brain is just mush!

--the job so far...

So basically I've only been working for two days, and my body already feels completely worn out. I guess that's what you get for working with kids, and I'm still getting use to working all day. I also got up at 6 this morning to go workout before work. I'm going to be doing that at least 3 days a week, so hello to my pillow at 10 pm or earlier and goodbye pillow at 6 am.....hmmmm not gonna like that so much. Nope nope. Right now I've been put in the 4's class while one of the teachers is out. I have not had any training or my orientation yet. So we shall see how I do...until I finally get my training done. So far I think the kids like me ok, although they don't like listening to much. Hopefully once my newness wears off, they'll listen better. So yeah, not too much to say. I just don't want to get sick, or fired. lol

I'm just glad I don't have diapers to change, just beware of those that still wet "the bed" aka their cots during nap time. I had two of those today...thankfully the other teacher was still there to help clean it up...yeah, kids are messy, dirty little things. And crazy. There are some hilarious ones, especially when they start busting out in song. Michael Jackson is their favorite, but I've also heard "shut up and put your money where your mouth is..." yeah, I stopped that before it got any further. Out of the mouths of will hear any and everything.

It's Fire Safety week, so tomorrow the firemen are coming. Can I get a woot woot? ;)

Come on you know me....I might be meeting my future husband tomorrow. hahahahahahaha

Ok, it's time for bed. I'm beat. More updates to come.

PS. I have a Baby Gap model in my class. He's super cutie. For real. Toooo bad he doesn't have a 23 year old brother. Yep. Way too bad. ;)

--almost ready to start!

So just a quick post to say how close I am to beginning my new job. I got my TB test, physical, fingerprints, and background check all done today. Woot woot for getting things done! I even bought scrubs to wear. I'm super excited about the Curious George one I bought today. I love Curious George. :)

If you're lucky, I might post a picture of me modeling it! haha.

It's so close. I'm so close to being a full time working woman. 4o hours a week. Every week. For the rest of my life. Ok, hopefully/maybe not the rest. I'm still banking on getting married and having kids someday. But I'm not sure how long that'll be. I've got to find myself a man first. That's kind of an important part of the equation. I need to figure out where/how to meet him.

Any suggestions?

<3 peace and love <3
