I Finally Did It!!

   Yes, after 7 months...I got a job!!! I am working as a teacher's aide at a local Jr. High with some special needs 8th graders that have been "main streamed".  I only worked two days last week, but I absolutely love it. It's like being back in school because I have a schedule and change classes just like the students. I also have homework this weekend!!! The really great thing about the job is that I get all the holidays off, snow days, and the summer off!!!
   I really think that this is going to be a rewarding job. These kids each have individual needs, and this is going to fill the void that I have in my life right now. I am such a care taker, and now that I have an empty nest at home.....this is exactly what I needed.....
  The other part of the job that I am happy about is I am allowed to dress "comfortable". That means I get to be me.....I have always loved my hoodie, my leggings, my jeans ..... I have always had my own sense of style .... I have always been accused of dressing "young" for my age ... but I think that in this job it will make me more relatable to the kids that I need to reach!!!
   Can you tell I am excited???? After a long 7 months of disappointments, heartaches, and loss....I can't believe I have found a job where someone needs me as much as I need them!!!


  1. Congrats Sherry!

    Sounds absolutely perfect for what you need right now! I hope this is all you want it to be and more!

    Peace and Blessings,

  2. I just read your review on the Nike Sneakers and was wondering if they come in wide width? I have problems with edema in both legs and feet and my normally very narrow feet can balloon right up. Between that and all of my back issues, I really need a decent pair of comfortable sneakers.

    (Nice review, by the way!)
