I survived 2 full days of a classroom containing 25 kids each day. I am exhausted, totally. Today I signed papers to be a legal volunteer at the school. For it to turn into maybe a part time or even full time job with pay, I was given 2 forms to fill out and send in for a child abuse back ground check and a criminal background check. After I volunteer for 100 hours, they (the school) will have a meeting and deside if I am an asset to the school and worth hiring as a permanent employee of the school. There can also be oppertunities where I could be asked to substitute one day a week but for the kindergarten classes only. But that's only if I learn the corriculum and pass the criminal and abuse background checks, which I will pass.
On my list now is to get some comfy shoes and decent clothes to wear. My clothes are horrible, stained, and just plain ugly. Guess I will be going to Goodwill this weekend to see what I can find there. Shoes I have a big problem with. I have a very wide foot and my feet swell on the tops making it hard to slip anything on. Even my sneakers don't fit anymore. I cannot wear shoes the have even the slightest point. The toe area has to be rounded, sort of like waittress shoes, nursing shoes. Right now with the shoes I am wearing my feet hurt so bad. It feels like knives being pushed in and pulled out constantly, OUCH!!!!!!!!
Anyways I am very excited over this all. Am I too old for this though? I am 46 and my health is not 100% Some of the kids, well let's say over half of them are the most ignorant, rude, obnoxious little critters. I swear their deaf. But then there's the one's who are so good, answer all the questions and are so quiet and so well behaved that makes being there so worth it. And I think it is so cute how they were saying Rebecca's Mom when they needed my help. I told them to call me Miss Cindy. So all day I heard Miss Cindy, Miss Cindy, lol, and I loved it.
Well, I will go now. I have to get a few things done. I promise I will get to all your journals over the weekend. I have the next 3 days off. Monday is no school. I just wanted you all to know that I haven't forgotten about you. And I do miss hearing all about what's going on.
Love to all..................CINDY
