Updates

I know I have not been blogging much lately. I was called in to substitute on Monday for Kindergarten and Tuesday for 6th grade. I had so much fun each day with the kids. Both teachers left full lesson plans so I was busy all day long. Normally teachers have students, take a test, watch a movie or other work that does not require me to teach. - so I had a blast!

I still have no job and I cannot afford to substitute full time (even if I were to get called in full time), after daycare I would be taking home less than $200 per week. I am still struggling as to what to do. I think for now I am going to collect unemployment, substitute one day a week (which I can still do and still collect) and look for a better full time job. I am worried that I will go crazy at home (in Gunnison we don't have a lot of activities for kids to do in the winter) especially with Lily. Lily is a challenge but I love hanging out and spending time with Mikayla - I know that sounds bad but Lily is well Lily (screaming, fussing, not napping, demanding all my attention, Lily).

I had a great week of running last week but this week I am really lagging. I did finally get up early and workout this morning but not running. I was going to go for a long run today but it was cold, windy and nasty outside.

Hang in there Tiffany! It's understandable, babies are sometimes so draining! Maybe the weather will be better tomorrow for a run. I went to the rec ctr today and walked for 30 minutes..going to try to work up to a run. I haven't ran in years. Keep blogging!

Great job on the running last week. You'll catch up this week!! I don't know how you do it out there with all the snow! I'll keep my fingers crossed for you to find a job. Any luck with finding new renters for your old house?

Best wishes with the job hunt! I know that can be a discouraging process, but I'm sure the perfect position will eventually pop up. Keep your chin up! :)

P.S. How old are your girls again?

Good luck on the job hunt. I was home with my two and it was HARDER than he**! But it was worth it.
