Where My Teachers At?!

Recommended Posts

Hey Ladies!

 

So a little background… This fall I will be entering into my 5th year in education (I’m a HS Counselor now, not a teacher anymore, but that’s not really important…) but it is my first full summer off. I have been in grad school since I started teaching, so every summer I have been in summer school. Last summer I taught SS, then took classes in July.

 

Here’s the deal…I am going stir crazy! What are you ladies doing all day to occupy your time? I have been cleaning the house (very slowly, one room @ a time, LOL), researching wedding stuff, on BDW, and working out an hour every day. But other than the 1hr at the gym, I am basically sitting on my butt all day. My FI said last night I am driving him crazy b/c he is at work all day, and comes home tired, but I have all this energy and want him to take me out to go do something.

 

I need help!!! What are you ladies doing this summer to keep your selves busy and off the couch?

Hey there! I am an elementary teacher. I am so glad you started this thread. I want to see how many other teachers/counselors there are out there. I just layout at the pool to occupy time or spend time on BDW. Also, finishing up on wedding planning.

I am a HS Chemistry/Biology Teacher. I took a job as a nanny for the summer for an amazing 7 year old boy. We don't have any kids yet so it is perfect. I put an ad on craiglist told all about myself and the most amazing couple in the world contacted me. I highly recomend this even if you do it part time. They have a pool so I can swim/excersise/layout as much as I want and spend as much time as I want on DWF. ha ha sorry I just realized I was braging a little. Just found ou that I go back on the 12th ug.........that is too soon. Don't feel like taking off my shorts and flip flops. wink.gif

Are you teaching this summer, or did you get a part-time job?

I teach elementary, grade 1.

 

I can totally relate, I get easily bored and I end up calling DH at work several times a day to see when he's coming home!

 

I picked up a couple of novels to read, try to make a few 'lunch dates' with friends, organize and re-organize closets. My biggest problem is that I end up spending so much money being off work as I go out to eat, shop...all that exciting stuff. It's hard to find things to do without spending money so I usually end up laying out around the pool.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
