Thank goodness for weekends; you forget how lovely they are when they just blend in with normal holidays. I'm very thankful for them now, very thankful indeed.
So, some news from the teaching front. The numbers went up at the school, and it was decided to make an extra class. And they asked me to take it!
It was really hard to decide what to do though; because on one hand I'm working with Belinda and have a BEAUTIFUL class of 1/2 kids, and the other two jobs aren't that stressful for me. The downside is that I don't really have my own room or my own programme, so I've been wandering around feeling a wee bit lost. But a new class? Crap. Lots of work, especially since it'll be starting 1.5 weeks behind the rest of the school.
Feeling horrible about deserting Belinda, I decided to take the class though; it's one that will look good for me in the future. I'm now the class teacher of a 1/2/3 Intervention class, for kids of those grades that are struggling with their learning. Hooooly crap.
But since it's the weekend now, I'm going to enjoy relaxing. Or at least try to enjoy relaxing, with the whopping bout of period pain my ovaries are sharing with me right now. And the news that my parents want to sell the house that we've lived in since it was built. And did I mention period pain? I think I need a puppy. That'd make everything lovely right now.
And isn't Valentines Day right around the corner? *bats eyelashes*
