The Start of Something New

For those who don't know yet, I recently got hired by the Suffolk Public School system to be a substitute teacher!! I am super excited! This means that whenever they need a sub, they will call me to see if I'm available. I'm hoping to be called A LOT!!! If they start calling pretty often I plan to cut my hours back at JC Penney's. I already told my supervisor and needless to say, he wasn't happy. Oh well. Life happens. This is what I'm going to school for and it is a good way to network and get my name out there, so that maybe I can potentially have a job before I even graduate! Plus...I'm sorry, if you work for a big company like Penney's and they leave you without air conditioning for nearly a month while the weather outside is in the 90's...they can kiss my butt!!

School is going alright I suppose. I already feel behind. I took a ton of classes last semester and I am only taking 5 right now, but I feel so lost. I think it's because I used to only work 3 days a week and now I'm working 5 or more days a week. Something needs to change! I also figured out that one of my teachers online is going to be a real hard ass. Hopefully I can get through it.

I went to see Rascal Flatts last week with my good friend Jen. She was one of my bridesmaids. We had a blast, despite the wet grass which leads to wet butts (which is why from now on...if it rains we are renting chairs!) and I also had some of my own drama out on the lawn. I have been told for a long time that I needed to cut some branches on the friend tree and it wasn't until that night I realized that everyone was right. Some things aren't meant to be saved and they definitely aren't worth having your feelings trampled on again and again. I tell some of my friends this when they have problems with people and perhaps I need to take my own advice. I'm not sure if I made this up or if I heard it somewhere ( would sure make me seem pretty smart! haha) "People aren't always what they seem and sometimes they are and you just didn't want to admit it". These are some pictures of Jen and I at the concert

I'm sure everyone knows by now, but if not...I became an aunt over the summer! Doug's sister Jan, who was my matron of honor, had her perfect little girl on August 22, 2008. She weighed 6lbs 6oz. She's very sweet! Everyone is doing well and we try to get over and see them as much as possible since I'd hate to miss out on something neat that she is doing!! I know!!! She's not even a month old!!! They grow so fast and I don't want to miss it!!

Well I hope everyone is doing well! I'll post again later.

Love to everyone!!!


ps....this is my first time using this site, so I'm sorry if it looks a little weird!

Glad to see what is going on with you out in Suffolk. Congrats on the substitute teaching with the school system, a great way to build your resume and experience. The pictures from the concert look really cool and I love the pictures of Maggie!!! Talk with you soon. Hugs,
