    I've done 7 days for a pre-k teacher who is serving on a jury. When I started this assignment, I felt fantastic. I'd just gotten over my second cold of the school year. Now I've picked up another one. Three colds in three months. Oy vey! I love the little kids, but they're hazzardous to my health!

    Between that, and the heavy rain we've had this week, I really hope today is the last day they'll need me on this particular assignment. I need to get better.

    jen12, I feel for you. It's like you're glad to get the work, but you're sick & want to rest. Take care, I hope you get better fast!

    I didn't pick up a sub job today, so I had the day off.
    But, that's OK - today is my husband and my Silver Wedding Anniversary!

    :wub: :wub: :wub: :wub:

    I made us a nice dinner and my husband brought home white roses and a box of dark chocolates! :)

    We're going out to eat at a very nice restaurant on Saturday night.

    I subbed in kindergarten again today. Their teacher will be back tomorrow. They were a little frightened by the thunder. It was raining so hard at their dismissal time that we had to go back into the classroom and have the proctor pick them up from there to walk them to their cars.

    Tomorrow I'll be in a first grade.

    Thanks Ms. I and fast chalk! It's hard to believe we have been married for a quarter of a century!!

    Today I am subbing for a seventh grade math teacher. He just has them doing worksheets, so it will be an easy day!
    And - I'll be done by 2:10 pm. Yay!

    Yesterday and today I subbed in the same kinder class! It went well. The pm teacher I worked with asked if I could sub for her on Monday, so I even picked up another job while subbing! Yay!

    The storms here have been crazy...which in turn means the kids have to have recess inside.

    Kinders without recess for two days straight (and no outside play at home) = a tired me!! :p

    I was finally able to contact Kelly Subs and I will be on the wait list. Better than nothing right? I still have to be interviewed, fingerprinted, and inform them of my availability and schools I want to work in. Their office is about an hour away from me. At least I can explore this city that I have not been to in a while. I am quite the explorer!:D

    The district I sub at regularly, is just slow because it's the week after the holiday. At least that's what the sub coordinator told me.

    Things are looking up!:thumb:
