Hey everyone....remember me? HoosierGirl? I'm sure the name rings a bell....I used to hang around the blogosphere quite a bit. Where have I been lately? Well, where haven't I been is a better question.
School has really been demanding. It's as if the more I learn about how to do my job well, the more I have to do. I like it, but wow, it's hectic. In addition, in an attempt to eventually quit working at the delit, I have started supervising in the cafeteria daily in place of my 45 minute planning time. I am allowed to do this, and get paid for doing my planning before or after school. So I get paid for 45 minutes of my time and the lady who supervises the lunchroom full time gets an extra set of eyes while the very-difficult 3rd and 4th graders eat lunch. The only "down side" to this arrangement is that I now have even more work to do before and after school. You would be surprised at how much you can get done during that 45 minute daily planning time.
I am also still working the deli. Let's face it, Christmas is coming, my poor car is falling apart one section at a time, and I need all the money I can get. So I'm still going over there 15-20 hours a week, at least until after Christmas. If I don't go crazy and kill the deli manager first.
ANYWAY, I didn't intend to write about how much work I have. I intended to write about the movie Steven and I went to see last night: "2012". It's about the end of the world on Dec.21, 2012. It doesn't have a very complicated story line - basically the whole world is destroyed and this guy and his family are trying to stay alive - but it's really exciting with a lot of great visuals. I was on the edge of my seat the whole time. AND, it has John Cusak, who I think is totally adorable, which is a bonus. (wink) I highly recommend it.
What is everyone plannning for Thanksgiving? Does anyone else think it's crazy that they're already playing Christmas music in the stores? Personally I think in a couple of years "Black Friday" is going to occur on the Friday after Halloween, not Thanksgiving. I mean, all the Christmas stuff came out in the stores then anyway.
By the way, did anyone else read about them "leaking" Target's "Black Friday" ad? Looks like some really good deals.
So that's all for me. I promise to do better this week.
Have a great Monday.
