Fall Break

It's my last week to sleep late for a while. Also, my last week to get anything done I guess. After this week, I'll be at school from 7:00 a.m. ish until 3:30 Monday- Friday and then at my other job from 5:00 to 9:00 four or five nights a week. The teacher that I am interiming for is coming back sometime around Thanksgiving I think. There's a permanent teaching position opening in January at one of the other schools and I am planning on sending a resume over about that one soon. I don't know when I would interview though!

This is going to be fun, except for the lack of sleep and the getting up early five days a week. That will suck. And I'll have to make a grocery list on the weekends, but probably will not have time to go myself so my husband will have to go. It will have to be a very specific grocery list or who knows what he'll come back with. That may also suck.

It does not feel very much like Fall here. Well, maybe at night, but it was 88 today. The disparity between the morning temperatures and the afternoon ones are messing with my head. There's at least a 30 degree difference between the two. It would be nice if it at least looked like Fall. None of the leaves are changing here yet! Also, my allergies are being kicked up by something. I don't know what. Leaves? Leaf mold? Grass? Dog hair? All of the above? I just know that my eyes are red and itchy. Yuck!

I keep thinking that somewhere it's probably snowing already. That would be kind of fun. All the pollen would be killed. No more sneezing or rubbing my eyes! I could deal with a little more cold.:)

Is it Fallish where you are??

it is not fallish here in Texas, but I experience that same odd cool in the mornings/hot in the afternoon thing.

do you like the new teaching job? are the students nice? what is your second job?!!

for an irony lesson I used to print out the alanis morrissette lyrics and discuss which ones were actually ironic and which were just bad luck. I'd play the song and the whole bit, but of course this was 10 years ago when the students had actually heard of her!

I love the middle-schooler's. I have 8th graders and they're great. There are only a few that I need to come down on harder. I work at Domino's also. Yay.

We're actually doing the Alanis Morrissette song along with "The Necklace" by Guy de Maupassant.:)
