School's been kind of a whirlwind for me. I have three classes left which I should be able to take between the next two quarters so I can student teach beginning in March. However, one of the three classes wasn't being offered. I have felt like the school has really jacked me the past few months and I've just become a "number" to them. So once I found out I couldn't get one of the three courses I needed, I arranged for a meeting with my advisor. (which has been no simple task in months past) I was told that the class would probably be offered as there is a new cluster beginning in the fall which will have that course. My advisor also calmed some other fears I have had and it seems that everything is planned to go smoothly which means I can student teach in March. Today I registered for all my classes so as long as there are enough students registered for the new cohort, all will go well on my end. Fingers crossed because I have finally reached that point where I am ready to to be done with school and start this new chapter of my life...or at least start a real job again!!
Over the weekend I have definitely gained a sense of peace for where my life is going. Its a feeling I haven't had since about 3 years ago, even before the lay-off. I will share more about that in months to come but am really excited!
Jason and I have been out of town for the past 5 days, and I am so ready to get home to our Cooper (and Sam!). We left him at a DayCare/Boarding kennel which was great for day care, but not really my cup of tea for overnight stays. I worried about the little things, like: What if he plays too hard? (especially being there for 5 days!) What if he can't sleep? What if he stops eating? Who will give him his 10 minutes of cuddling/petting time in the morning which he HAS to have? What if they feed him too much/too little?! Amazingly, I haven't worried nearly as much as I would have thought. A huge thank you to Brooke who is picking him up tonight and taking care of him until we get home. I cannot wait to hug him and see if he's grown since we dropped him off. It amazes me how sad it made me to drop him off. He's s dog. Seriously Stephanie, a DOG. What will I be like with children!?
I was able to have my goddaughter Katie spend the night last weekend. It was a blast! She was such a joy to have around! I still plan to post about our weekend together. I will just as soon as I have time. :)
My back was giving me a lot of trouble the past month, was seeing teh chiropractor every other day and once even had to go back to back. It was pretty awful so I am really excited to report that it's been pain free for over a week! I'm hoping to start riding my bike or doing something physical in the next few days!
Well that was a pretty bland post but I wanted to get a little caught up so I could start writing again!
