The Great List {12.21.12}

If you are reading this, then the Mayans were wrong, and that alone is a reason to be grateful.  (Not that I believed it anyways.)  But that's not all... 

Just chillin' in the stroller
1.  I GOT A JOB!  After being laid off from teaching in June of 2011, I have stayed on the district's call-back list since I was a tenured permanent full-time teacher.  

Not once, in 19 months, had a position opened up for me.  I had already written off teaching anytime soon, especially with increasing statewide budget cuts.  To my surprise, after some shifting of teachers into different positions, a part time job landed my way.  I'll be back to doing what I love, two days a week, starting in January.  I am so excited I could burst!  

The fact that I will be in a temporary position, working up to my due date, only have a six week maternity leave, be super tired and possibly delirious, is overshadowed by the fact that I am able to teach again and regain some balance in my life.

So that's it for this's a BIG one and I can hardly focus on anything else.  I am excited to say that I am on Christmas vacation.  Let the celebrating begin!

“Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.” ― William Arthur Ward

Merry Christmas!  Enjoy every minute of it!
