Thankful Thursday

Better late than never right?! Wow guys….I took a perm job with the school district and am 11 days into FT (for schools) work. It’s kicking my a$$!

I’m so tired, mentally worn out from all the learning going on, and tired from early morning’s. I get up early to get myself ready before Sky wakes up, but I leave the house at 6:40 am, so that means an early morning, which means early to bed the night before.

Which in turn means I don’t have a handle on when to fit in blog time, or personal fitness time. I’m working on it, but it’ll take a bit for me to settle into a routine that works for me, and the family. I know it will all fall into place, I just have to be patient and make clear priorities.

Early Morning view of the school.

I know that sounds like a lot of woe is me, but I don’t view it that way at all.

I’m so thankful to have a job that works with Sky’s schedule. Mark takes her to school, and I’m off in time to pick her up at the end of the day.  Plus, I’ll have the same days off as her, so it’s pretty perfect all the way around. I just want to be home when she is, and I have that with this job, and I’m so very thankful!

Bonus I love the school I’m at so far. I’m on day 9 (working days) and while there are challenges, and a learning curve, I’m loving it! The principal of the school is great, and the co-workers I have met are all so supportive and friendly. Plus, I have the freedom to make the Health Room my own, which I love!

The Health Room…with my personal office the first door to the left, and the H.R. Bathroom second door to the left. I’m slowly making the space my own. Which mostly means getting rid of Seahawks stuff and putting up Steelers stuff! 

Extra special…I’m working at Rainier Elementary…it has an amazing view of Mt. Rainier driving into work every day, and it totally takes me back to when I lived at home and worked at Mt. St. Helens. I loved the drive to work so much, the view of the mountain filled my windshield and was so peaceful. When the sky is clear, and I can see Mt. Rainier driving into work it feels like I’m going home. I’m just so thankful things have worked out so well…even if I need a little time to adjust. 🙂
