my first day of work...

Well today was my first day of work after 12 and a half years as a stay at home mom. I HAD A BLAST PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I got to sub for a 2nd grade teacher. There were 19 kids in the class...5 of them with special needs. It felt so good to be back out there!!!!!!!!!!! Yesterday I was worried if I'd like it or not or if I'd mess up cause I've been home to long. Let me tell you......when I played freeze tag with them...I had em eating out of the palm of my hand!!!! I can't even tell you what it feels like to know that I just brought some "bacon" home!! heehee Or as my hubby calls it "bacon bits". :) You know what was kinda weird??? I ate lunch in the Teachers Lounge! What a trip!!! There I no man's land. I even talked...using big grown up words!!! It was just to weird. THE TEACHERS LOUNGE!! I remember walking past there in school and trying to peek in if a teacher was walking out. I so badly wanted to know what went on in there....NOW I KNOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Everyone was really nice to me and told me to have a nice day. One guy even asked for my name and said he might ask for me when he's out next week. I am exhausted now. It just hit me this very minute....I'm off to take a nap. I gotta take this back to work thing slow! heehee Thanks for all of the kind words of encouragement you all gave me out there. It helped a lot! Have a wonderful weekend everyone!!
