I haven't been around much lately. I am a teacher and I chose to move to another school. The main reason I chose to pack up 7 years of accumulation, unpack and restart was to help reduce stress...what was I thinking? The last two weeks have been crazy. I have been, however, very optomistic! I have a small class size, and my principal is great! Unfortunately, all the smiles were wiped away at our first staff meeting. It seems that the only staff member that I know from another building, AND the 2nd grade teacher across the hall are both pregnant. So, this means one of our "best friend" married couples is pregnant with their second, my sister in law is pregnant and cannot understand why I don't want to be a "part" of preparing things for her, and now, two of the staff in my building are pregnant. It just seems as if I am being tortured, or tested. To make matters worse, I work with kids. Talk about NOT wanting to wake up and go to work each day. It just seems my life is falling apart. I WAS excited about a new start, and my enthusiasm was crushed by this news. I know this seems so selfish, but I cannot seem to control my upset. I still talk with the two girls that are pregnant, but it is quite short, and all I can think about is their babies. I know as soon as they start to show I will become a hermit in my classroom as I will not be able to stand it! GOD help me please. I am at the end of my rope. How much more of this am I supposed to (or can I)take??????????????????????
