Tuesday Ten #6

Ten Reasons I am Doing the Happy Dance

  1. I got a job!

  2. Teaching first grade!

  3. Which is the grade I've been teaching for the last two years!

  4. So it's what I really wanted!

  5. And it's in a really good school district!

  6. Where there will actually be parental involvement!

  7. And the dads aren't in prison!

  8. And I may finally be able to get room moms!

  9. And I'll be making more money than I did before!

  10. Yay!

I'm first!

Hooray for you!!!!

Also, I did your Name meme on my site (and I'm very anti-meme, so this may be the first one for quite a while).

Übermilf said...

Can I be a virtual room mom? I'm sending virtual cupcakes.

Hooray for Br...Scarlet!

Scarlet Hip said...

Jacob - I will go look now. I'm honored that you did my meme. Well it's not mine, but you know what I mean.

Ubie - I almost linked you when I wrote that about room moms. I kept thinking, "Maybe I'll get some Ubies!"

Hi Brooke:

My daughter is in the first grade. I wish you were her teacher. She has a really, really great teacher, but you're much funnier. You'd like her. She is funny too. Congratulations on the great gig!

Nance said...

YES!! And, this means...health insurance!? Sadly, this is one of the first things I think of. But it's a big thing.

Good for you, dear. Now you can get your teach on.

Tim said...

Awesome! Congrats!!

Congratulations on the new job! Happy new school year...and definitely congrats on making more money this time around. Woo hoo!

Bill said...

You see? Moving is a good thing! I'm very happy for you - so is my dog, Molly, even though she seems happier with her bones and toys. But her tail was wagging, so that's good for something.

If you ever find out what a room mom is, let me know. Depending on what they do, maybe I could use one. Can you get one at Wal-Mart?

Whatever ... congrats! Good job, good school, good district - and more money! Very nice.

Spinning Girl said...

Oh yay!


Danielle said...

Bone said...

Congratulations, Muffin Fig!!!

I don't think I remember what a room mom is. Gee, it's been a long time since I've been in school.

yournamehere said...

jiggs said...

Scarlet Hip said...

Egan - I'll drink to that.

Valley Girl - Oy! Kinahora!

Sue - yay!!

Leezer - thank you. That's very sweet. I'm sure your daughter is adorable.

Nance - oh please! I'm so relieved I don't have to sign up for COBRA I can't even tell you!!!

Tim - yay! Send baby Bore-A-Phil on down when she's ready for first grade!

Scarlet Hip said...

Kendra - oh my. I should have made that number 10. We must discuss.

Sunny - woohoo! Thank you! And good luck in your new school year too.

Bill - room moms are those nice moms that come to the classroom with cookies and go on the field trips and arrange the birthday parties and generally do what they can to help the teacher. They were in short supply at my previous school.

Spinning Girl - yaaaaaaaaayy!

Dani - thank you! I'll be by to check out your new digs.

Bone - thank you! See above.

Scarlet Hip said...

Todd - I was getting tired of paying the check bouncing fees.

Jiggs - it is perfects!

Chicky Babe - sticky date pudding rules!

Michael - are you offering me a cigarette?

AMC - thank you muchly!

Bill said...

I kinda thought that was the sort of thing they might do. I really like the idea of someone showing up to help and bringing cookies with them. Oatmeal raisin cookies would be best.

1st graders are a whole other world for someone who is stuck in the middle like me. I think I'd have a hard time with clingy and whiney. Wait -- that's not so different than 6th graders.

Congratulations and best of luck. I'll be waiting for your adventures.
