- Remember awhile ago I blogged about needing a job. Most of you said you thought I should go back to substitute teaching. Well, that is what I decided to do. I don't know if you all realize what the life of a substitute teacher is like. First I had to get a school district to recommend me for getting fingerprinted. Then I had to pay $62 to get fingerprinted for this county. I have been fingerprinted in two-three other counties in the state. Yes, the state needs to figure out how to regulate this but its probably one of the few ways they actually make money so they aren't changing it. Then I have to fill out applications and get my test results from tests I have taken on my subject knowledge and if I have tuberculosis or not and my credential all together and take it in to the different districts. Then you wait. You wait for a call saying they need a substitute teacher. You don't know if you can do something with your friend on Friday, until Friday. You wake up and get ready in case they call. It is no fun!
- We will be owners of a house in 8 days! We bought a couch, love seat, coffee table, and two end tables last weekend. So excited that we will have nice furniture in our living room when you first walk into our house. I'm trying to be good and not spend all our emergency fund on new furniture. But I'm also ready to not have everyone's hand-me-downs and have a college looking place. Everyone is still trying to hand us down furniture though.
That is pretty much all that is going on around here. Let me know if you have something exciting going on that I haven't read about yet!
