Finally, we had a relaxed day. The girls and I love that we can sleep longer and Pablo also woke up two hours later than our normal schedule. We decided to went to the movies and saw Planes. Both girls love the movie. Of course, the rest of our day didn't had any fun event but at least it was relaxed. Annie

Well, let's talk about school. I'm teaching second grade. I had lots of plans for my classroom set up and for my classes. But, what happened? The new administration sucks (sorry). I don't have any motivation or desires to go to work. Let's explain. They told me at the very end of July that I had my work again. Ok, we were supposed to started on August 1st, but no they cancelled it. On August 2, we signed the contract and started August 5. At that moment we had just three days before school started. That Monday was supposed to be conference day but they decided that was more fun to put all the teachers in one classroom and forgot us. We spend most of our day in that room just laughing and talking, around 2:30 pm the administration remembered that we were there and started the meeting. Oh, did I mention that we ended our day at 3:00 pm.Definitely, not a great started to our school year. The next day, we had a conference during morning and "work" at our school for the afternoon. On Wednesday 7, we were supposed to work with the set up of our classrooms but it was long day because the new administration had workers replacing and fixing things around school. They finished with my room at 5:00 pm and left school by 8:00 pm, it was a horrible long day and the next day we received our students. August 8, was a happy and sad day for me. I was so tired. I was so happy to be my girls home classroom teacher and sad because they are growing so fast. Now, we are on our second week of school and things are great with my girls and all the adjustment we are making. The new administration is rare. We were supposed to got our payment last Thrusday and by 8 am they send a letter to inform we were not going to received it. Wao, I was so frustrated, angry, I cried a lot. Why they choose that option I don't know but I was ready to quit. Yes, quit!! Now, this past week was not the best but things were "better" than the first one. Let's see what happens!!! With the girls everything is fine and they adjusted very well. Annie

Weekend Recap

Friday - Pablo had the day off because of his birthday. We went to my parents house and helped with my Dad, who was sending to rehabilitation again. He need those therapies (don't know if I write it correct). Saturday - Pablo's birthday. We sang happy birthday with a little cake he received from work. Later, we ran some errands and then went to the movies. We saw the smurfs and it was great. Sunday - We bought new shoes for me to work. The new school administration want "professional shoes" for us. And let me tell you, when you don't want to buy shoes, you go to the store and nothing fix. I started my searching Friday and it ended Sunday. Let's see what is in store for during this week. Annie PS: Stay tuned for school uptade.

The first few days or maybe is the first month of class is horrible. I mean, we started our day at 5:00 a.m. I spend my days moving from place to place. Sometimes I just want to come to our house and enjoy a long nap but, no. I so hard to make different things during the day and after it, headed to home to continue working. Is horrible. Did I mentioned that we went to my parents house and stayed with them with two hours. Annie

Weekend recap

How it is possible that we are already in a new week? Where is my weekend? Friday: Went to work and by night we went to my parents house. Saturday: I was the most tired person in the whole world. Can barely moved, ugh. At afternoon we decided to went to picked some uniforms for the girls, went to the bookstore, to the mall (had lunch there) and went to Wal-Mart. When we got home I started to work with my school lessons while hubby did other school things. We spend a lot of time working that by midnight the girls went to bed. Well, five minutes later Sofi threw up,ugh. It was a stomach thing and an hour later she feel better and that means they went to bed around 1:15 a.m. Sunday: I spend most of my day cleaning and later visited my parents. Of course it was a boring weekend but come on, it was our weekend. Annie

Two days of work

OMG, I feel exhausted, tired and only had three days of work. Definitely, I love to have my students around and work with them but, hate meetings. Come on, why we have to go to meetings? We lost our first day of work, yesterday we had to go to a meeting and after it, go to our school? and us (coworkers and me)think, why we had to go back to our school if they don't know what to do with us. Today I leave school around 8:00 p.m. oh yes, and tomorrow is the first day of school for kids. Annie

Oh yes, today was my first day of work and we did nothing. First half or one hour of meeting, prepared a poster (team work) and then we just talked, talked and talked all day. During the afternoon we were supposed to work at our classroom but no. Now, tomorrow we have a conference in another town and after lunch we have to go back to school and work at our classroom. And, on Thursday we receive the students. This days are going to be very busy. Annie

Summer Day: 64

Well, is the weekend and things around here are not peaches and cream. My dad is again at the hospital because on Wednesday he had a stroke (we called it a brain stroke here) and paralyzed his left side. He was at the hospital overnight and then released to his home. By that day until today he looked so bad and can't moved any part of his left side, nothing. It's a difficult situation because we can't moved him to the bathroom. Today he was send to the hospital again for this situation and they are waiting to do a CT SCAN. I mean, is scary situation and I don't know what to do? how to react? nothing. Please pray for all of us. Annie
