Lately, I’ve been thinking…that I have started to really settle in well here. Things are getting normalised and I quite like my new job and my new place.
Lately, I’ve been feeling…a little on the fence about the babysitter that this family has. The mom said that she will probably drop in hours, but will continue to come 4 days a week. She really helps the kids with their homework which is amazing. But I feel like if we are both working 3-9 we are going to be stepping on each other’s toes a lot.
Lately, I’ve been wanting…a few things! First of all, SNOW! (and guess what, it actually snowed over night!! Only a sprinkling but whatever). And second, a car. Oh my how much I long for a car. I probably won’t buy until the spring but at least I know I will most definitely be getting one now. It has only been a week and I am very much missing the ease of using a car to get around.
Lately, I’ve been doing…a lot of relaxing. Last week totally drained me of all my energy. But it was my first week at my new job so I knew I would be tired.
Lately, I’ve been hoping…that my class schedule for teaching English would pick up. The first two weeks were great for classes but now I have maybe one class a day. Overnight I lost two for this week. I’m not sure if it’s really worth my time to keep going, and it’s only been a month! I am starting to hate having to wake up at 6:30 to only teach one class. It does mean that I am up and ready for the day but still.
I want a hippopotamus for Christmas – we all knew it was coming! Of course, I LOVE this song. I even saved it for a Monday so that it would have a hippo picture to go with it. Did anyone else think that it was a boy who was singing this….
I heard the bells on Christmas Day – this song is kind of sad but I like it 🙂 Of course, Burl Ives gives any Christmas song the right sound 😉
