Blog entry

Jesus, I'm just trying to write a new blog entry and I'm clicking all over the place. Bingo! i FOUND IT, but (capt- fuckers) I can't tell you how.

I'm having a hard time- hahaha! Isn't that what blogs are for? The first line... the second line... who knows, but it's an anonymous place to dump your shit without having to go to a support group.

Now enter the children, I have exactly 15 minutes until the husband enters the scene and I have to make dinner.

Anyway, I am having a hard time transitioning out if the home back into the bullshit septic system of the real world. My husband provides and I clean and raise the kids, I have other skills such as teaching- but schools can be unpleasant places. I was told to put on my big girl pants and suck it up and go back. BUT maybe I have an alternative opportunity to make ok money at doing something different.

HUsband home on time and now I have to go.

Happy New Year, everyone!

..but schools can be unpleasant places. I was told to put on my big girl pants and suck it up and go back. BUT maybe I have an alternative opportunity to make ok money at doing something different.

My wife works as a "para-educator", working with physically, mentally and emotionally disabled kids. And the parents. Yeah, we know the "unpleasantness". My son's learning Spanish, so if you're going back, the phrase is !Buenas Surete!
As far as extra money, she haunts garage and estate sales as well as thrift shops, and re-sells on eBay. There's a learning curve, but once you get it, it's a nice secondary income. Just save / make time to write.
 
What is it?!
'Breaking bad'! Lady of the night...professional gambler, Hitman! -woman!! Ehmm..stuffing envelopes, lift, uber, selling tamales on the street... Ok, I give up.

There is a possibility I can teach Pre-K out of my house. I have to find anywhere between 3-6 students. I meet with a non-profit organization that helps startups market their business. So I have some homework to do and see where it goes.

It'll be a bit of a process but its no harder than starting the daycare I run through my house.

We've talked about this in the past. Your wife sounds like a great lady! I work .2 as a pre-k special educator and I have worked as a para. It's a great job, as long as you like it. My big concern is I don't want to go back to the stress of it. I like working in the public for a bit, but I need to fill my time with another way to make money.

Kevin, I have considered many of these so-called professions- particularly stuffing envelopes and hitwomen. I am too old now to be a lady of the night and I don't know much about science...
Thanks for a good laugh anyway.
