the new job

Let me just tell you that I'm loving my new job and it is taking up so much of my time.  In a way that uses my mind all day long and leaves me tired at the end of the day and not wanting to write.  It's good.  I'm thrilled that I've been given this job and am loving my classroom and the kids and the other teachers.  The time is passing by so quickly and I've already been there a month! 

Each day I see kids in grades K-5 and I'm still getting used to seeing that kind of age range and switching my strategies up with each grade level.  It's taking all my mental faculties and at the end of the day I'm kind of a pile of mush.  So, I'm typing this to you on Saturday night at 10:22 and I don't have much to say. 

My house is a complete and total mess right now, because a project involving changing the hall bath sink vanity and toilet became changing the guest room into the nursery and the nursery into the guest room.  This involved paint and a new rug and some crafts that I have yet to do.  And some fabric shopping that might get done tomorrow and who knows what else. 

Ok, so, that's the confession from this tired blogger girl, but tired does not mean that I'm not in a good mood.  I am.  I want you to know that I'm feeling good about this new job and am so thankful that the Lord was with me this year as I searched for a new job.  So thankful.

How wonderful that you are enjoying your new job!! I can totally understand how hard it is to switch gears between grade levels. I've only been back to school for two weeks and I'm exhausted (and I've already caught my first cold).

Will you be posting pics of the newly decorated room? I'm such a voyeur!

So happy for you! God is good!

I think the switch in rooms and such is a wonderful thing. My hope for you is it will help you let the past go and bring new beginnings about.

Its a wonderful thing that you have such a great job! You are right, God is good!!! I feel blessed myself that I love what I do too. :)
I know it will be a big relief to have your home re-done & re-arranged. Whenever I do any project like that, I'm always re-energized walking into the re-done areas/rooms.
And, like JellyBelly, I'm anxious to see pictures too!

So happy for you! I think I can understand about the home improvement projects that get away from you. I was going to take on the new place like gangbusters and just do miraculous things in no time flat, and you know what, it's not that easy...there are so many THINGS to the things! But you'll get them done. And praise God for a job that you enjoy and that demands the best of you.

You...are amazing. Thank you for continuing to give me hope even when I know you could probably use some yourself. Thank you for not giving up so that I could understand how not to give up, too. Praying for you.
