Dare to Share #185

It is Friday night, and you know what that means..
It is time to Dare to Share!  

Wow, lots of big changes for me this week. I went "back to work" for the first time in a long time. You might have seen me mention in past posts that I was going to start working in our school system as a substitute teacher.  I was actually accepted a few weeks ago, and was supposed to get my ID number a day or two later.   After a week without hearing anything, I contacted the subbing company to see why I had not received my number. They realized that my file was accidentally overlooked.  I was told that it was flagged to be put in the system ASAP, and I should have my ID number the next day.  At 5:30 the next morning, I was startled out of sleep by my phone ringing.  I was put in the call system right away just as she said, but I still did not have my number, so I could not take a job that morning.  On Sunday night, I was called again.  On Monday morning, several more  early calls none of which I could take yet.  A little before 8 am, I got the email with my number. I logged into the system and saw that there was a job available that morning for one of my favorite teachers and my elementary school where all three of my kids used to go.. YES!  I took the job and quickly got ready.  It was so great being back where I felt at home.  I used to volunteer there so  much, that many of the kids thought I worked there.  I worked in the art room for a few days (another huge YES, as I love to be creative) and this morning I was with a room of 1st graders.. I really miss the little guys now that my kids are growing up.   Several people told me that our district really needs subs, so I should easily be able to get jobs most days of the week.  This should not change my posting scheduled much, it might actually HELP me post more.  Having specific times to post will actually help keep me on track. 

I have found one down side to working though.  I am TIRED!  Standing on your feet all day with a room full of boundless energy is a lot when you are used to working on the computer by yourself.  I will get used to this new change though.  

Also this week, my daughter went to her first Homecoming dance.  I was cracking up at her best friend. Can you tell she takes a lot of selfies.. LOL! The camera came out she went into pose mode.  I was happy to hear when they got home that had a great time.   

After Homecoming, I found that she used some of the balloons she brought home for the Ice Ball Experiment.

I was hoping to get the features from both party #182 and #183 post. Starting my new job, I was only able to get #182 which you can see on this post HERE.
