Anyway, to the point. I got a job. I am currently subbing in the local schools as a paraprofessional. In other words, I work under the resource teacher while she fights to be sure all her special babies are cared for throughout the day. What I expected to be an occasional need has become a full time job! At the end of the day, I am exhausted. Some days are much easier than others. Some hours, as a matter of fact, can be flat out boring.
So, now instead of feeling horrible because I'm sitting home while everyone else is out, I feel even worse because my house is dirty and I'm too tired to care. How silly that sounds written out. Either you want to sit home and care for your home and family, or you want to work and help support all the little ones who need it!
In this conundrum and personal self-attack, I came across this article floating around Facebook. Of course, I clicked it. I mean, did dinner really need to be cooked?
