Last week I talked about how busy my job can be, but I don’t think I mentioned how much fun it can be too. I still feel like I am learning to do story time, so I still have to do some prep stuff at home – practicing my stories, putting together new songs/finger plays /flannel stories or doing a test run on a craft. Anyway, after dinner last night I quickly cleared off the table. DH started doing the dishes but I said, “I don’t have time for that now, I have to color”. he just looked at me and said, ” You have the strangest job”. I think he is jealous.
Wow, I’m tired. I work 2 or 3 days a week. This was a three day week – with about 7/8 extra hours of prep work on top of my normal schedule. This week I went to Children’s meeting – not my normal job, but good to do sometimes. However, it was my branches turn to take minutes. I still have to write up my notes. Plus I had two book groups. I am happy to say both The Westing Game and The City of Ember were big hits. But keeping 4th and 5th graders on topic – an interesting exercise. I am happy to say that they are starting to think a little bit beyond the plot. and it is a kick working with these kids, but two book clubs in two days is hard. And it was the start of preschool storytime. I had much younger kids this time. Just 3 is very different from almost 5. I haven’t even had the chance to look at the learning 2.0 stuff for this week.
At least I planned for this week – laundry was done , and I made enough food for Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday night. Last night my DH had his gig playing jazz guitar at a local restaurant – so I knew where dinner was coming from.
Today was supposed to be pick up the house day. So far it has been going to the grocery store and play with computer day. Oh, well.
