    I'm not too familiar with the Cathloic schools in the city, although I did a tutoring program in them through my certification program.

    You might want to check...

    I don't think the Catholic schools thing could hurt you... Any classroom experience is beneficial, I think, particularly if the demographics of the school are similar to those in the area you wish to teach in.

    I am thrilled we are off today too! Every weekend should be three days. I actually feel rested! Unfortunately, I have to go to the doctor's today for my back...time to refill the muscle relaxers!! I really thought losing the 15 lbs since June would help my back but the sad fact is I have a bad back!! I wasn't even able to go to the gym this weekend for fear of injuring it more!! To top it off, I have a bad cough right now and coughing with a back ache is no PICNIC!! OWWWW!!! They open in 15 minutes!! I hope they let me come in this morning!!

    Yea... I totally can relate to you with the whole bad back thing, it is no picnic... I am only 24 and because I was a prof. ballerina (well I was dropped and broke my back in three different places), I have a terrible back and terrible ankles and I am in pain... Muscle relaxers are clutch!! ;)

    I'm going to the doc too. but then I am going to walk Michigan or go to the Shedd or something between doc and class. I'm also going to treat myself to a nice lunch I think.

    I do have a lot of work to do for grad school to though.

    It is TOO hot to be outside!! I got in to the doctor who just prescribed an anti-inflammatory (sp) because I said I couldn't be slowed down with muscle relaxants. Hopefully it will help.

    I didn't see too many people out this morning. I think it's a regular work day for most people. Still, even kids aren't out!!!

    OMG!! I just got cupcakes from Sweet Mandy B's and drove from my house (which is about a half of a mile away) because it is so hot outside, and ALL OF THE ICING MELTED!!!!!!! EVERYTHING!!!!!!!! :mad: so now I don't know what do because I lost my parking space and my desserts are for a meeting tonight and they are melted and ugly!!!!!

    Just a rant about the weather ( I know that I am going to regret complaining like this because mr. winter will bite my booty)
