This past week was crazy. I started the week in a dreary, calm haze as I forwent my normal work schedule. Instead, I attended Paraprofessional training Monday and Tuesday. For those who do not know, Paraprofessional is just a fancy name for special ed teacher’s assistants. While the training was sometimes dreadfully boring at times (16 hours of training? can’t help but be a little bit of a snooze fest), it was honestly so nice to have a change of pace. It also made me very aware of how much I actually like my job and missed ‘my’ kids and (most of) my coworkers.
I went to go see the Martian on an impromptu, super fun date night with Drew on Wednesday. By the way, it was a must see, so good! The rest of the week was quiet as I counted down the days until the weekend. I had good hair days, went to the gym three times, listened to my first Christmas song of the season, and was reunited with an old favorite childhood game!
Unfortunately, the week ended on a lower point. The heartbreak of Friday’s attack left me empty, but I know I have nothing new to share on the topic. Topping it off on Saturday, extreme crappiness in the relationship department of my life struck hard. Things have been rectified and I spent Sunday night having fun and exploring a new hobby.
To say the least though, I’m feeling wary of this Monday. I’m sore, tired, and ready for the holidays to start up.
Here’s to a quick, painless week.
