I had my first day of training today. It went well (just reading about the procedures, taking a couple quizzes on what I had read, getting to know part of the curriculum, and--lol--putting the books away in the right place). I really like the director. I'm guessing she is around my daughter's age. She and I clicked right off.

The teacher who I worked for had 30 years worth of teaching materials that were ruined. The school is inhabitable. But prayers & best wishes have been answered and we have found a temporary school for one month and then in April we move to a new and larger school. There is Someone looking out for us, that's for sure............so great luck to you, Barbara!!
That's terrible that a fire caused so much damage. I'm glad a temporary school has been found. As long as no one was hurt in the fire (I hope that is the case), maybe the fire will turn out to have been a positive thing, since there will now be a newer and larger school. Maybe some local businesses could help provide some of the things the school will need, since so much was lost?

Sounds as though you made your way through the boilerplate part. Now it's onward and upward to the "real" bones of your job. Congratulations!

Does James know yet or are you saving the news for tomorrow?

Good for you Barbara the first couple of days might make you tired but a good tired but after that you should get a great surge of energy and mental energy. Keep it up and more good things will come. I am happy for you now maybe you can fence the back yard.

I was full of energy there, but I have always had trouble driving at that hour of the day (around 3:00) and yawned all the way home.

Someday we will be able to fence our yard in, but the pay I get from this won't even cover the bills. It is our only paycheck. But June 20th is coming fast, and then James will (I'm hoping, praying, and very much believing) get a really good job. As the song says, "Our day will come."

BTW, she said I could come in Saturday for my next training day if I was free. I told her I am free, but that James is only home on weekends, so she said that Monday will be fine.
