Lost Frog.....Lost Job

So, when they got my HAND-MADE frog stuck in the laminator at Office Depot it appeared things could not get any worse. First, let me just say that this was a huge deal, I mean call my husband at work crying big deal (okay, I do that like all the time). But here's the thing--as much as I want to say I am, I'm not really crafty. And it's hard to teach elementary school and not be crafty (btw I mean crafty as in does cute crafts, not crafty as in sly, but that's pretty obvious). I know it shouldn't be a big deal but it's embarrassing when all the other little kid teachers make this great crap and you're like "here's Flat Stanley that I colored with magic marker and he looks like hell, like he was hit by a bus instead of just his bulletin board, but I'm going to put him in my room cause I'm sick of buying way overpriced stuff at SchoolAids". I'm dreading going to see my best teacher friends room because I know I'll probably cry it'll be so cute and I'll be jealous. Anyway, point being, the handmade frog was a big freaking deal and he's been stuck since Sunday. I've given up hope.

Not that I really need him anymore because (drum roll please) I don't have a job! Yes, that's right. The small unnamed school I was working for (we'll call it ister-say ea-thay owman-bay) had to downsize and combine grades and so they called me at 3:00 the day before school started to let me know I don't have a job. great! How ideal. Not that i wouldn't love to be a stay at home mom to Darth and General and do laundry, run errands and clean toilets like i did today; but really that's not realistic. So here i am.....jobless again. Only this time with butt load of stuff from school aids that's already been opened. Okay, so I'm done with the pity party, it could be worse. I could be Job from the Bible and instead of loosing my frog and job have lost my family, friends, livestock that i depend on, and health. Yeah, that's almost as good as a classic lifetime movie where some infertile woman gets raped and finally gets pregnant but with the heinous rapist's baby to make you feel like your life is not so bad. Let's see if i can make the next post a little more positive.
