I feel like I haven't had time to check in--and that's because I haven't. Last week I worked 4.5 days and then left on Friday for a women's retreat on a ranch in East Texas. It was a good experience and I even rode a horse for the first time, which I enjoyed. (I chickened out on the zip line.) But after I got back on Saturday night, we had church and a Super Bowl party to go to. All that sounds fun and it was but I didn't have time to do everything I usually do on the weekend. I then went back to work on Monday. I was supposed to sub the second half of the day for the teacher going on maternity leave, and spend the morning observing her classes and planning ahead for when I show up to take over. Instead, a lot of teachers called in and there weren't enough subs. I ended up subbing in other classes, then running back to Mrs. S's class when they did find a sub. I subbed in the afternoon for the Pre-AP English I classes. I had to go to the grocery store after school and I was exhausted last night. It doesn't help that I've been waking up an hour early the past few mornings.
I don't think I should go into all the details here, but things are still tough here with the business and adding nervousness about doing a good job in this position isn't helping. I would be thankful if you would pray for me.
