Hey blog world! Remember me? Since I have been too busy lately to keep very well with my blogging, I thought I would do a "catch up" post! Here goes:
Things at school are good but very busy. My teaching roommate is incompetent and drives me crazy, but other than that, I love my job. I had a student teacher for the first 7 weeks of school and I miss her. My students are doing well. For the most part, they are all making progress.
Things at the Kr**er deli have not been so good. The department manager is kind of difficult. I requested a transfer to cashier, but she blocked it. And now because she's mad at me, she's giving me all the rotten shifts. I worked 16 hours this weekend, 2 8-hour shifts, because she knows I don't like to work all weekend. It sucks, but I need the extra money, especially with Christmas coming up. I'm looking for other options. The good news, I do like all the other people who work in the deli. They are really nice, and mostly are a lot of fun.
Joseph is doing well at IU. He hasn't been able to come home yet, but Rachael and I are going to try to go up to see him next weekend. I miss him.
Rachael will be 18 years old in just 3 days. She just got back from her Senior retreat, which was a very powerful experience for her. She is having a fun and happy senior year.
Daniel is just about to wrap up football season (yay!). He has had a great first year - the JV team is undefeated. His grades are good and he is, as always, a very responsible yet goofy person.
Aaron is still having some struggles. One step forward and two steps back. His grades are good and he likes his teacher, but his social issues continue. He is showing signs of maturity now and then. I have hope.
We still have the two cats, Butterball and Moustache, but we just added a new kitten, Caboose. He was a stray that my friend Heather at school found and I agreed to take. He is a funny little mixture of sweetheart and alley cat.
Steven and I are doing well. Coming soon in November, we will have known each other 2 years. He is still keeping busy driving the truck but manages to be here about once a week or at most every two weeks. We are quite domesticated, and I like it. What can I say? I love the big guy!
I think Jon Gosselin is despicable. I think David Letterman should be ashamed of himself. And I think the mom of the Duggar family is crazy.
That's about it. Right now I feel like I'm getting a cold. Otherwise, life is pretty good.
Hows it going with you?
