The whirlwind that is our life now

I worked no less than 65 hours this week. Yeah, me. The Eternal Slacker. Man, thing sure have changed quickly around here. But it is all good.

A quick side note: The Boss lady commented tonight about how quickly she got the house cleaned up tonight. (Yeah, I didn't help clean. I was working. For real. At the dining table, two laptop computers and all!) The point is, we are all gone so much right now, that no one really has time to make a mess at home.

We are settling into our new routine as well as we could expect. The kids come on a bus to my school each afternoon and they love it. For now the are getting to play on the class computers pretty much for the entire time. Eventually I'll break the bad news that homework WILL get done while I finish up my afternoon work. But for now, they are getting some time to settle into the routine.

I spend most of my day in 6th and 7th grade math classes. Those of you who know AtHomeDaddy more than just through the blog can quit laughing now. I sure didn't set out to be a math teacher, but here I am. One more part of the new routine for our family.

At the high school I was in a role that really wasn't right for me. I liked the job, but it was really not the right job for our family. I was working way too many hours for a job that should have been treated (and certainly it paid like) a part-time job.

It has taken me a couple of weeks to get into the groove of our new reality. But I noticed yesterday that it has been about a month since I told The Boss Lady something like 'I miss our old life'. I guess this new chaos is starting to grow on me.

Busy but still here

Loads to tell about the craziness that has become our lives since I accepted a new job teaching Middle School.

But for the first time in my life, I am too tired to talk (or type).

It's justa job, right?

Here it is, almost midnight and I start a new job in the morning. Should be in bed, instead I seem to be dwelling on all of the stuff that might go absolutely, horribly wrong on my first day back in a Middle School since 198never (because technically, I went to a Jr. High School not a Middle school. I could give you a definition of the difference between the two, but if you aren't a teacher, then you don't really care and if you ARE a teacher,well, I would hate to show my ignorance by giving out wrong information on my blog...

Anyways, between my Bro hooking me up with a new wardrobe and having a new car to drive, I'll at least be the coolest looking first day teacher at the skool, even if I am the most scared, too.
