It has been far too long since my last update!! Three months…wow how time flies!! Although, so much has happened, it almost feels like more time has past.
Here is a taste of a day in the life of Bon……
I feel him climb out of bed and I immediately stretch my legs out onto his side of the bed…. almost lying sideways along the bed…. falling back asleep as he gets dressed and ready for work by the dim light from the closet. “I love you, have a good day” he whispers as he gently touches my leg – “I wove yoo too” I mumble.
As my alarm
gently brings me out of rips me from my dreams, I reluctantly open my eyes and reach over to swipe my phone and stop the noise. I unplug the phone charger and check my email, facebook, twitter….. I may or may not doze back off…. eventually I throw the covers off and so begins the mad dash to get out of the door by 7am fully clothed, with something packed for breakfast and lunch, teeth brushed, hair done, and caffeine fix met.
Once I arrive at school I have about 45 minutes before morning duty (my opportunity to greet students with a smile and help them start the day with some positivity)…. during this time I usually catch up on any paperwork I didn’t get to the day before, eat something for breakfast, prepare for the day’s lessons/groups, and catch up with some colleagues.
After morning duty the day goes something like this:
Sprinkled throughout my day are laughs and
grown up conversations with grown ups (something I didn’t get a whole lot of as a nanny). The people I work with are awesome and loads of fun! Not only that, but they’re a great source of professional advice and support.
Over the last couple of months, after work and a somewhat lengthly drive in traffic I would arrive at any one of the following (depending on the day):
Eventually, I climb into bed and fall asleep almost as soon as my head hits the pillow. Although, the last week or so….. I fall asleep as soon as my phone hits the bed side table, after half a dozen rounds of Fairway Solitaire.
I hope that wasn’t too corny for you!? If it was, don’t worry — I’m not about to make it a habit.
As you can tell, I hope, I am loving my job!! I am currently a long-term substitute for a Math interventionist, and when the Math interventionist gets back from maternity leave, I will stay on as Teacher Support Assistant (TSA). Essentially doing the same thing, just a different title and less $$.
Before starting this post, I looked back at my last couple of posts, and was pleased when I reviewed my goals for this year…..looks like I am on track! 🙂
How has the first third of 2013 treated you? Is it going the way you expected and hoped it would go? I hope so!!
I am a 26 year old wife - my amazing husband, and best friend, and I have been married for 5 years now - I recently completed my teaching degree and have started substitute teaching. My life may be quiet, but it is everything I've ever dreamed it would be - I am blessed and forever grateful!
