How could so much change in 2 weeks?
I found out last Friday that I will not be returning to my school next year. I have been surplussed due to a teacher being reassigned to our school. I'm the "last one in", so I'm the first one out. I feel like I'm reliving my nightmare from last summer. I have positive thoughts for this year though. At least this time around I have one year of teaching experience that I did not have last year. It's still hard though. I completed my student teaching at my current school, so it's really like my second year there. I've made so many wonderful connections with fellow teachers and the parents in the community. If the miracle of more kids registering to attend our school were to occur, I'd have a job for next year. Here's hoping.
I'm finally getting used to my husband's new job. He's been offered a different job, which he's been trying to get for a few months now. He's going to accept. The only downfall to this new job is he will have to go to the East coast for training for 4 weeks this summer. I may go crazy over this time. Any ideas for how I could fill my free time? He won't be going anywhere until I'm out of school, so I won't have anything to do.
I have hypothyroidism (a.k.a. a slow thyroid). If anyone else out there is dealing with this and has found the secret to more energy and any suggestions for losing weight with this, please share. I'm on the right dosage of medication, so that is not a concern. I really feel like it hinders my weight loss as well. I had trouble losing weight last year and know that a slow thyroid makes your metabolism slower. Any tips would be more than welcome.
I had my gallbladder removed 3 years ago and have an issue where my liver still drips bile into my intestines, causing it to burn my insides. It's such an excruciating pain. I was put on cholestyramine to make the pain go away. I've been on this medication for 2 years now. I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this from a gallbladder removal, and if so, how it's being treated. I can't imagine being on this medication forever, but maybe I will be.
On another note...I just ordered Mother's Day gifts over the weekend and a graduation gift. I am SO excited about these! I will share next week, once they're given. =]
