Got a Job.......Now I have to turn it down :(

Hi All,

If you been following my little blog, you know that I am looking for a teaching position. Well I went to an interview and was offered the job. It was for 5th grade.  Although I wasn't too excited about 5th grade, I accepted the challenge. Nothing against 5th grade students, but I just fell in love working with primary this yr :).

I went to pick up my contract and benefits packet yesterday, and as I was going over the information and kid you not the insurance contributions were ridiculous. HMO Family health insurance was wait for it................................... a whopping $580.00 a pay period! seriously, never ever seen anything like that.  Thats over a 1,000 a month that I will have to pay nearly 12,000 a yr, which in essence would have me taken a huge pay cut.....

God is good though, and I know I'll be blessed with the perfect job for me, honestly didn't feel it in my spirit when I was offered the position.

So the job search continues..........

Get to know me Thursday!!!!


I hope everyone is just enjoying all our deserved time out, I am. I have been laying around, catching up on reading, and eating lunch at a moderate rate, lol. I am loving it, I am loving life, and loving this weather. I live in Chicago, so it is a joy to wear flip flops everyday, I usually wear them until I just can't do it any more.

After filling out nearly a 100 applications, I got an interview, yay!!!!!! its with a charter school, and for grade 4. I taught 4th before, and could easily go back to it. I really fell in love with first though, but I won't complain. I am thankful to God for any position I am blessed with, and I am sure its some great 4th grade blogs that will inspire me...............

As soon as I get word I let y'all know!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Get to know me Thursday!, on Friday

Hey All.....

I been soooo busy trying to beat Chicago's heat wave that I neglected to do my get to know me thursday blog.  ummmmm here we go!!!!!

I was on a great health kick for several months, and I stopped one day for a social event, and I haven't been able to get back on. Although it is Friday, I am going to start again today. I want to lose weight, but that is not my focus, I really want me and my family to be healthier.
I am going to go to walmart today to load up on veggies.....

My sister is moving to ATL, because of her husbands job, I am happy for them but will miss her and the nieces and nephews very much :(. We had a going away party for her hubby last night, because he is leaving this weekend. She won't be leaving until August.  Here is a pic of my son Jaleel with my two nieces Endya and M'laja......

It's Hot in Chicago

Hey All,

Chicago has had nothing but high 90's and 100's the last few days, every time I go outside I feel like I am melting. My air in my little truck is not working, I am just sitting around doing nothing. I can't make any projects for next school yr, because I don't have a new job yet, however I am believing God for one, and I know he is able. So when IT happens, I'll give an update. :)
Happy Summer
