The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @Caffeinated Book Reviewer. Basically it’s a chance to talk about the books you bought, borrowed, blogged about, and read for the week and what’s coming in the week ahead – and then share them with a much wider blogging community. Check out the details here.
News at Home – Feeling Broke!
So over the summer I spent a decent chunk of change getting everything I needed to have my room setup the way I wanted it. And I knew this first month would be tight because in my old school district I got paid on the 15th of every month and in my new one I don’t get paid until the 28th. However, I’m officially feeling it. I mean, if I were getting paid in 4 days I would be sitting pretty. But since I’m not, I’m starting to do the account juggle. I hate that. I can’t wait for this new pay schedule to settle in and not hurt so much!
And, on the topic of money, I may not be getting paid as much as I expected 🙁 I FINALLY earned my MA in August and that’s supposed to come with a pay bump. But, because my university isn’t showing the degree on my transcript and probably won’t show it before the deadline, I probably won’t get the pay bump this year. Which I was counting on. Grrr!
So I’m feeling broke, but otherwise, things are good. My two kiddos that give me trouble are continuing to be a handful, but I’m also continuing to get support and I do feel like I’m getting better and better at handling them and their problems. On a funny note, I have a student in my class that we (the other kinder teachers and I) have started to call Cinderella. She loses her shoe at least 2 times a day, often more. And, like Cinderella, she doesn’t pick it up. She just keeps on going. She lined up from recess EVERY DAY this week without 1 shoe. LMAO! I think we have our Prince Charming, too. This one little boy keeps delivering her shoe for her. So much fun 🙂
I haven’t managed to get ahead, but I’m keeping current and that feels great 🙂 I have started looking at scheduling October, which I can’t even imagine doing at this point last year. Yay!
Still getting in my 10k steps a day and the food situation was much better this week. Remember how I hurt my foot at the lake this summer, though? Well, it’s really been bothering me the past couple weeks and Friday when I woke up I could hardly stand on it. So I may need to get to the doctor. Which is, of course, really hard with a teacher’s schedule. Hoping taking it easy this weekend will help.
