I failed this winter.
NaNoWriMo. Running regularly. Eating healthier.
I considered not working today because I thought I needed some time to myself, without work or without kids. I wanted to wallow in the fact that my husband wasn’t home yet.
Then I remembered that I had bills to pay, namely the dog’s doctor bills.
When I accepted a sub job in special education, I had no idea what to expect. I’ve never worked with special ed, save for a student with ADHD many years ago.
I had a great time. Small class size. Students were actually ahead of their weekly schedule so the classes became study hall.
I’m glad I took the job today and met more students who are slowly changing my opinion of teenagers (in a good way). It has opened up the possibility of subbing in special education in the future.
I’m glad I sucked it up.
