Update 5/3

Hi everyone! We had another great week. The weather is getting nicer! Each small group has finished their story at their level and has taken a quiz, next week we will go over these quizzes and discuss test taking strategies and finding the answers in our reading. We are moving full steam ahead in math. We are finishing our geometry unit. Please review basic shapes at home with your child (square, rectangle, triangle, circle, trapezoid, hexagon) and 3D shapes (sphere, cube, triangular prism, rectangular prism, cylinder). The students had a lot of fun exploring with shapes. Next week we will be going to the farm... In math! This is another thematic unit! It should be exciting, but involves a lot of prep work..parent volunteers are welcome! In writing we finished our friendly letters and are now moving onto really discussing the 6 traits of writing through a book titled, "So You Want To Be President?" Our class has a strange obsession with presidents (maybe because two of our student's first names match the last names of two presidents..) but, I thought this would be a fun way to learn about the presidents and about writing. Now, if they could only calm down for a couple of minutes! That reminds me, take some time this weekend to discuss with your child the importance of listening while the teacher is talking. It is important that they don't miss any critical information or instruction. With the weather getting nicer, the students get a little antsier, so just give them a friendly reminder. :) We have a lot going on next week, be sure to check The Buzz that went home Friday! We also have our field trip Tuesday. Remember to dress with long pants and good shoes. Bring a hat and jacket! Bistro Night is May 10th! This is a great opportunity to raise money for new furniture! Your child might be sitting in a backless chair right now! Ask them! Come bid on our class project, it will look nice in your home :)

Sorry again

I know I said I was gonna try to do better blogging. But honestly I don't feel like I can really express my feelings on here anymore the way I want to. I don't have anything to hide from Hubby but he gets upset if I say anything negative. Since I pretty much have depression I can hardly ever express a positive thought. So that leaves me with nothing. I think it's good for him to read about how I feel even though I know I should talk to him directly like a normal person I just can't bring myself to do it. No matter what I say he cant understand how I feel so what's the point. Everything I say is just an excuse. I just look for a little empathy I guess. Well I was going to type s lot tonight but of coarse my computer died and so I'm typing on my phone. Maybe tomorrow night I'll be better able to update on my feelings lately. Good night

Hello, making a comeback

So, I doubt anyone is reading my blog, but I am going to try to write some more. Things have been a little busy:

First let me send out a huge CONGRATULATIONS to my friends Priscilla and James. On Tuesday Priscilla and James welcomed their healthy rainbow baby boy Samuel Ryan! I am so excited for them, there are no words. I can't wait to meet the little guy, but of coarse she lives across the country, but we will find a way.

Another CONGRATULATIONS goes out to my big sister Carrie and her new husband Josh who were married last Saturday. It was an amazing wedding/reception. It was so hot that day, upper 90s and she was having an outdoor wedding. Then, abut 1/2 hour before the wedding was to start a giant storm rolled in, I mean tornadoes people. But, my sister so calm and collected said no big deal, move it in the chapel, and it was beautiful, and we were able to sing "going to the chapel" on the way in the limo, so it worked out.

On another note, since my whole family knows now, Vinnie and I are expecting number 2! I know, pretty awesome. I'm only 8-9 weeks and haven't been to the doctor yet, so we shall see how things are going, not sure yet, hopefully all is well. So, now that I'm not a crazy person I am free to talk names!!!!! I think we have our boy name for sure:

Benjamin Clark
It's possible the middle name could change to Christopher or Kevin, but unlikely.

For girls, it is interesting, there are just so many names I like. I like Caroline, Elizabeth and Emmalyn

I'm trying to find a way to convince others that Emmalyn is awesome, I know I shouldn't care what people think, but I have gotten the "eh" from everyone in my family on that one, but I just love it for some reason even though it's different from my name style. Elizabeth is my sister's middle name, and I really want to use it no matter what, first or middle. So not sure.

Well, that's my update. Talk to ya later.

Is there a job for me?

Starting to think there isn't. Jobs just keep disappearing on me. It is pretty depressing. I was hoping that charter school I interviewed for would be the one, i ROCKED THE interview, but got screwed bc I'm out here in WA. This just sucks, I need a job really bad. I know the market sucks, blah blah blah, but I know A LOT of people who got teaching jobs who honestly, should not be teachers. I don't know what else I can do, I'm just blah right now. I'm too tired to do anymore applications, especially this one with 8 questions that I want to answer 10 different ways. Will they even read it? I'm thinking no. Alright, well I'm gonna rest, can't do anymore right now.

Sorry it's been forever. I am just really busy lately, a lot going on. I am trying to find a job across the country. However, if I get the job I will have to leave Washington and take the baby with (away from Vinnie) for awhile, probably October. That's a long time. I don't know what to do anymore. It's all so confusing, I'm just stuck in limbo all the time.

On another note, my new favorite baby names:

Benjamin Clark

Audrey Elizabeth

What do you think?

Sorry MIA

Hey, just want to drop a quick note to say I'm still here. I've been real busy between my trip home and applying for teaching jobs. Hopefully I'll get back into a swing of things.

Well, it's a 4day weekend for the hubby, which doesn't really mean much for me other than I get to see him a little more. I didn't get out of the house today, it's just been one of those days, I can't explain it all right now.

Also, I think I officially give up trying to make friends, it just isn't worth the disappointment anymore, apparently people aren't as desperate to make friends as I am.

I don't really feel like writing. I'm going to bed early, just sick of everything right now, I need to check out.

I'm thinking I might just join a gym tomorrow even though I'm leaving in a few days for two weeks, oh well, it needs to be done. I'm s disappointed that I have gained 20lbs it's just another thing to add to the "I suck at life" list. Well, going to bed, at 8pm. Goodnight.
