Second Year - Already?

I spent my day today doing (as my blog header suggests) a whole lot of nothing. Well, it's the last day of my holidays, so why not?

Let me share some of the more noticeable accomplishments of the day with you. Please don't all applaud at once:

  • Not showering.

  • Getting on the computer before 9am on a Sunday.

  • Paying my brother to wash the car for me.

  • Watching ER episodes.

  • Reading: The Memory Keeper's Daughter.

  • Playing aimlessly with the bunnies.

  • Playing aimlessly with the dogs.

  • Folding a whole lot of laundry.

  • Hiring a Foxtel Box Office movie: The Omen.

  • Considering hiring another: The Da Vinci Code.

Yeah, that's about it.

Basically anything that involved sitting around on my backside. Tomorrow I start back at school, can't believe this will be my second year out in the real world. Some days I feel like it's been longer than that, others I feel like I just finished uni and still don't know what I am doing!

Am looking forward to this year of teaching. I don't know if I mentioned what I'll be doing, but I'm going to be a jack of all trades grades this year! Still at the same school, still five days a week, still earning the same, just not on one class specifically.

Monday: Job sharing a 3/4 class all day.
Tuesday: Supporting a 5/6 learning support class and their teacher.
Wednesday: Job sharing with Madame Belinda on a 1/2 class.
Thursday: As above.
Friday: Supporting a 5/6 learning support class and their teacher.

So I really am (almost) teaching K-6 next year! Now THAT'S what I went to university for! We have our staff development day tomorrow, so things might change, but it's definitely going to be a busy year. Bloody holidays going too fast.. But here's a nice New Zealand shot to keep you going until I do some serious uploading.

That's a really great picture. I wish I could have a lazy Sunday like that, and so far it has been all but productive but I have to study. I got up an hour ago, at 1.30pm hahaha. But I have a final on Wednesday so I need to prepare for that today.

Great picture(s)....

I really like the one of canyon you jumped off of. "I was thinking of you when I jumped off the canyon" don't you ever let anyone convince you that you don't know how to give a compliment. Have a great first day of school.

Could you two be any cuter?!?

It's a pity I have an adverse reaction to happy people in couples or I would gush more.

My mouth actually watered at the site of that picture. And no, I am not hitting on your man, the scenery just took my breath away.

Lindsey said...

Oh my gosh, I once told Sarah that I think you look like the Australian Janet. Oh I so said that first! I think it's the long blonde hair.

I love that picture--you guys look so cute!
