Moving

Yes, it's exhausting!

I teach Kinder so my kids leave at 1:30 and I'm mentally done for the day. And all of the things that I have to teach are spread so thin that we never get to finish anything! No wonder kids are...

Pay day

Our first pay day is September 30. They had some explanation, at my orientation, as to why that was. That was after I had already signed the contract. I am wishing every day that I never did!
