I'm still he

I know it's been a while since I've written anything on here and to be quite honest, I just haven't felt up to it. I feel like if I don't have anything MAJOR to tell, then it's kind of a pointless entry. Life is moving along at the quick pace it often does when you have a gazillion things that still need to be done. We're still a little unsure of our living arrangement as the slight possibility of us getting to live in a house has come up. Again, it's just a slight possibility and we're not getting our hopes up. I still plan on putting down the deposit in two weeks for the apartment we'll be upgrading to in June. I would obviously post something when any new information on this is available. So I'm not even going to write anything else about it...

We are in our last 6 week grading period for the school year! It's such a HUGE relief! While it IS TAKS week this week, it's still kind of exciting b/c it gets the first week of the 6 weeks out of the way pretty painlessly as far as work in the classroom is concerned. Kids are mentally exhausted by the time the afternoon classes come along so they have been better behaved. Thursday I get to miss the whole morning of TAKS because I'll be at my doctor's appointment where I will take the 1 hour glucose test. Not looking forward to that at all. But then Saturday is the BIG 3D ultrasound! I'm so excited I could pee my pants! Of course, that's also a side effect of pregnancy so I may pee myself even when I'm not excited...you may want to watch out and not sit by me.

I guess I lied earlier when I said there wasn't anything MAJOR to tell about b/c there is: Waylon has a job. He got a job as a vallet at the airport. He gets plenty of hours and enjoys what he's doing and the pay is good and he occasionally will get tips. It really put me at ease. It was also the job he wanted the most out of all the jobs he was looking into getting. I was happy for him because I know he was feeling bummed about being jobless for almost a month now. I knew God would bring a job along in His time and He did. We are both very thankful.

I'll be 29 weeks this coming Thursday. I can't believe I'm almost in the last 10 weeks of my pregnancy. This feels surreal and crazy at times. Yesterday a girl from my church who just had her third baby, a beautiful little girl, brought the baby in to church. She was beautiful! She had the cutest little round head and she was just so dainty and cute. It totally made me ready to have mine and see what she looks like and get to hold her and feed her and even change her diaper. It always seems glamourous when someone else is doing it of course, but I'm still looking forward to all of that. As is Waylon. I think the closer we get, the more excited he gets. He's going to be a great daddy...I hope! lol. ;) I really do believe he will though. He does great with kids.

One last thing. Friday at the end of the school day, right after the last bell rang and all the kids were leaving, a fight broke out right at my classroom door. It was between two boys and thankfully my door was closed, although they hit it so hard at one point I thought it was going to open. It was appalling seeing the crowd of kids around them that were egging them on and taking video of the fight with their cameras. When the boys had finally begun flinging each other on the wall opposite my door, I opened the door and yelled out "Stop it!! Stop fighting!" which they completely ignored of course but I really didn't know what else to do. There was NO WAY I was going to step foot out there and risk getting hurt. They were being very brutal. I called down to the office and let them know a fight was going on right in front of my class and then a male teacher across the hall from me came out and broke up the fight. I was relieved. It was also rattled up a bit. I've never seen a fight while it was happening and it's never been so close to me.
So glad I'm not expected to break it up....

well, that's about all I got right now. I know I'm probably forgetting something but I'll remember and put it on here. I'll have more pictures soon. I got my hair cut again and it's quite a bit shorter but I LOVE it. I even found out a student of mine copied me. She came in today with the exact same haircut as me and before she had had long hair! I was so honored. It looks really cute on her too. :) I'm such a fashionista! haha...

going to bed...

I'm so glad to hear that Waylon got a job! I know how depressing it can be to not find one for several weeks... it's easy to say that God will provide, but it's hard to wait on that provision! I hope the next 6 weeks flies by for you!

Don't worry about the glucose test it's really not a big deal. I had the berry flavor and it really wasn't bad. I know you must be so excited about the 3D ultrasound. At the specialist we saw they did a 4D ultrasound and it was so neat! I hope the last 10 weeks go by fast and easy for you.

That's cool that Waylon got a job and that you guys are really getting ready for the major change that is about to happen... As for the fight - I'm glad you reacted to it how you did. I've seen pregnant teachers try to get in the middle of fighters, and I've always thought that was the craziest thing in the entire world. Yeah, I'll jeopordize my unborn baby's life because they are stupid.... I don't think so!!!!! So go you!
