They’re stuck with me now (insert maniacal laugh here).

Another thing I like about my job is that I can call and take phone calls during the day.  Do you know how hard it is when you are playing phone tag with someone and you tell them they can’t get a hold of you between 8a and 4p??

Hard.

I don’t really take phone calls because I share an office with someone (super sweet, but super quiet coworker) and I’m trying to be respectful.  She shouldn’t know my true character until much later into our working relationship.

You can read more about my new job here and here if you are so inclined!

And the last thing I love about my new job is they offered me an interview for a permanent position that I’m temping in now and after that they had the stupidity intelligence to actually offer me the position.

July 23rd is my official start date.

That’s a mere 683 days after I resigned from my teaching position and although the journey has had its twists, turns, bumps and given me and my boys a bruise or two, it was a learning experience and I mostly learned to be humble and  stubbornly graciously accept help and support from our amazing friends and family.

The other day Finn asked if we could go see a museum exhibit about dinosaurs that’s up in the Twin Cities and it almost made me cry to realize in a very short amount of time we wouldn’t have to count and pinch pennies so we could do fun activities like this one and so many more.

For anyone else who finds themselves without a job for whatever reason, what I would tell them is the road may be long, winding, and have unseen obstacles but if you keep putting one foot in front of the other, have faith in those that travel the road with you, and have persistence you will get there.

Not everyone has the talent, luck, or smarts to be successful.  However, everyone can work hard and persevere and that is how everyone can obtain success.  Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity.

It might not be the way and place you imagined it would be…

…but if I’ve learned one thing in my life…

…when my life turns out different than I planned…

…it is always so much better than I imagined…

I think I will always be a teacher in my heart of hearts and sometimes I’m heart sick for spending my day with kids who remind me what it means to be human, in the best possible way.  However, now I get to join in with the rest of the nation and say…

…thems peeps, those lazy teaches who teach them kiddie human beans…they gets 6 months of vacation and get paids for working 12 months…AND they only have to work from 9a to 3p…that’s the easiest job in the entire planet…because seriously, thems just like to complain?  It’s not like its actual WORK or anything.  Overpaid and overvalued, that’s what teachers are.  Pretty sure monkeys could do their job and better than theys dos its…

And then I will go and run and hide in my closet from my sister (hi Jessica, please don’t kill me).

I can’t say that is was all worth it, but I can say I’m very happy where I’m at and I’m proud that our family has emerged essentially unscathed, and I’m looking towards our bright future.

…and mostly I just want to say…

…I’m back bitches…

…you can’t hold me down…
