The Unknown

Well, I did it! I talked to my Principal today about ending my contract. I am so excited for the opportunities ahead. I told my students today and they thought I was lying. Hehe, I guess I tell them I am going to quit all too often. Not sure when my last day is but hopefully I'll know by Friday.

After work I came home tired, as always, but got my second wind. I was able to knock out some laundry, go eat with the hubs and take Lola for a walk. Maybe tomorrow I could even go get a workout in? Eh, probably not.

Speaking of second wind…. Look what my hubby is in the process of making us:  <3 Lurve!

It’s so awesome. I had no idea he has mad skills like this but I already have tons of projects planned for him. Has anyone seen She is amazing! I already have plans for him to build me Amanda’s scrapbook room , and a shoe rack, and a coffee table… Seriously, my list goes on and on. Can’t wait!!!

I think that walk made me sleepy… Good night!

My poor neglected blog

I am considering moving my blog to a Wordpress account... I need to take this blogging stuff more seriously and I think having my own domain name will help.

So, you may find yourself asking 'Why the absence? I've missed you'. And that's ok, it's only natural, really... I think a whole lot of unhappiness from work is to blame. But that will change soon...

I've decided to move on from my career as a teacher. This is a huge decision that leaves me with a heavy heart. I am not looking forward to telling my students (well, most of them anyway) because I feel like I will have let some of them down but I know I need to do what's best for me. 

I don't love teaching anymore. The state, school district and administration are making a lot of changes that I don't agree with. And there's not any room for growth, unless I want to be an administrator (which I don't), or a counselor (which I don't). I don't want to teach for the rest of my life. Sure, I would love to have summers off the rest of my life, but that's not a reason why one should stay in a career.

I received a job offer and I plan on accepting it. I am looking forward to what this new experience will bring and I plan on keeping you guys involved every step of the way  :)
