So this is the last week before Thanksgiving break. Needless to say, the students are bouncing off the walls and it is growing more and more difficult every day to get students to focus on school. My lower level ESL students are usually one of my best classes but this week they are driving me crazy.
My mom and the kids and I are supposed to be leaving for New Mexico on Saturday but we don’t have anyone to watch our dogs. Now we will probably have to stay at home. Part of me is disappointed but on the other hand, I kind of like the idea of being at home next week. My house is an absolute disaster so it would be great to have some time to get it really cleaned up.
On another note I am still single and I’m feeling pretty good about that. I’ve kind of figured out that I really don’t need a relationship in my life right now. I’m trying to focus on my future and what I need to do to make it the best it can be for the kids and me. I think it is really time to look for another position for next year. I feel like I’m out growing my current job. I would love to have a job where I could teach the same thing all day long. I know that I would probably get bored eventually but at the same time it would be nice to be able to leave my job at work and not always be so stressed out.
One major relief I have right now is the fact that I don’t have to worry about cooking for Thanksgiving because a friend of mine invited my mom, the kids and I to her house for Thanksgiving dinner.
