Announcement and a Design Change

Hey All,

The announcement and the design change sort of go, first, it's official! I got a job at the school I was talking about earlier! :)

The only thing is that it's not the grade 3 job I applied for...I'm teaching kindergarten!

I was pretty nervous at first, I trained as a Middle Years teacher, and over the past few years have taught everything from 3-7. It was a little overwhelming at first, thinking about what a day would look like with my kinders, but over the past couple days it's become more exciting.

Now I'm mostly nervous about the first day. But I'm sure it'll be great.

So that's the reason for the design change. Thanks to Dreamlike Magic for the template!

Pretty soon I will be a "Middle Years Girl in an Early Years World"!

Thanks for reading!

Positive Thoughts...

Hey Everyone,

Just a quick note to ask you to keep your fingers ultra crossed for me this week as I had an interview at one of my favourite schools. Should hear back sometime after the long weekend. I went in pretty confident and with a lot of staff support, but you never know.

Thanks for the support!

May Currently!

Hello Again,

Linking up with Farley over at:

Oh' boy fourth grade
Click the picture to visit her blog!

For her monthly linky party!

I love reading through everyone's Currently's and finding new people to follow :)

Here's mine: 

A quick recap: 

Listening: My poor doggie just wants to be outside...but it's so yucky and wet that it's not worth it. Sorry goggie! 

Loving: I'm so excited about this job posting. But nervous too. I really want this job, and will be devastated if I don't get it. But it doesn't close for another week, so I really need to calm down. :)

Wanting/Needing: I have a bunch of things to finish (and start) which I need to get motivated to do. And, of course, a job! 

Summer Bucket List: As I mentioned in my last post, I need to do some more running, especially since Ultimate is starting up in a couple weeks! As well, I know, broken record, I would love a classroom to set up. And the last, I would love to spend some more time out at my family cabin at the lake! 

Have a great weekend, everyone!

Linky & an Update

Hi All,

Before anything else, I would just like to let you know something. It snowed yesterday. Yes, SNOW. I am so cranky today. Maybe it's a good thing that I'm at home and didn't get a call to work. It is MAY and there is SNOW. {Sad face}. I needed to share. On a more positive note:

Today I'm linking up with Jess over at:

I {Heart} Recess

For her Monthly Goals linky party!

PS: Isn't her blog button so stinkin' cute?

My Goals:

Personal: I'm very sad at the moment when I look at the contents of my bank account. The new computer, a couple new all-season tires and my most recent car insurance payment wiped me out. Plus I haven't worked yet this week! Perils of substitute teaching!

Health: I was doing really well earlier this year using the Couch-to-5K running program. Then I got sick (evil cold that wouldn't go away) and fell off. I really need to get back to it (mostly so my body doesn't die of shock the first time that I have to sprint in an Ultimate game)!

Blogging: I had lots of aspirations for this blog and things I wanted to do and share. I need to get back to that. I have a couple of math game freebies that I'm working on for you :) and some other things I want to share. Just have to get around to it!

School: Pretty self-explanatory. I just want to work. Hubs is worried about me not having a job/wanting to start a family, so I'm under pressure to be employed or have to change careers for a while. Which isn't something I really want to do!

Fun: My poor dog just wants to be outside. Even though there is now snow on the ground. And I feel bad because we haven't walked him in ages. And that our backyard is teeny (another reason I need a job--new house)! But it's so wet out there, and he hates baths waaaay more than he likes walks. Well, maybe not waaaay. So I need to get on that.

Thanks for stopping by and reading about my goals. May is always the magic month for job postings around here, so keep your fingers & toes crossed. I know I am!

Have a great day!
