    I have a rule about pouting and not talking to me at my house. If you are mad at me, you have to tell me what is wrong; otherwise, it is totally not my fault. If my DH gets all sulky, I ask him once what is wrong. If there is no answer, I totally ignore the behavior. It took 30 years, but I finally got him trained to either tell me what is wrong and give me a chance to address the problem, or to forget about changing anything that I do.
    that would be great if he were home Celeste but he left early without telling me for a business trip and has completely ignored me.

    Hopefully it will get worked out and be back to bickering like a couple of married people.

    Work decisions

    As I mentioned before, there are lots of changes at work. I was declared surplus, and then placed in a junior high school (middle school), although my training is for academic sciences in high school. I'm not wild about junior high kids but the content is easy for me.
    So I have an interview on Friday for a job that entails setting and writing a whole new re-imagined curriculum for the government. This is a permanent position as a managerial leader working with a team of educators. I would have an opportunity to significantly influence what students across the province learn, and how they learn. If I am offered and accept this position however, it means I give up my position as a teacher completely. It also means I only get 4 weeks holidays and will have a 45 minute longer commute to work each way, every day (if I stay in the classroom, my commute is just 15 minutes). On the plus side, I would have a better pension and a bit more pay.

    So, what would you do? Would you pursue a job with fewer holidays, longer commute and less flexibility for the sake of doing something incredibly influential and meaningful, or would you stay with the job that isn't the best for the sake of more time off and being much closer to home?

    Popping in for a minute,have to get ready for early work tomorrow. Ran thru past posts: CritterSitter, am so sorry about your dog. I hate losing a critterfriend,know how that feels. Farmchic:your pics of yesterday,that's where I want to be. Just that,right there...
    Have finagled my bills & negotiated w/my landlord for July rent, so have my $150 for 4 lessons @ SkyView, w/enough leftover for food/gas/sundries & new license plates (have to get those on the front, Colorado law I was unaware of). So...looking forward to this coming Monday when I can drive an hr to where SkyView is,& happily shovel horse poo towards further further lessons. Can't wait.

    I would walk over coals rather than teach middle school.

    If you make more money now, will it mean you make more when you retire? It would here. I work a 12 month contract (teaching college) and I don't mind it all all. The commute might get tedious.

    Critter, so sorry aout your pup. Hugs to you.

    Koolio, you will get a better idea of what you should do after your interview. I really believe in "going with your gut" and you will get a better idea of what the job will be like after the interview. I have never regretted moving completely out of the classroom and going to a 12 month contract. I enjoy taking vacations at off season times (and prices) and the extra pay is nice.

    The only drawback could be the commute but not having to deal with some of the issues teachers deal with may be worth the extra commute!

    Isabella is giving me even more grey hair. This is what I found when I went out there yesterday. I have no idea how she did this. Bubble wrap is the only option. Are all horses suicidal or just mine???? Yes, this is her throat!!!!

    Lori, I am so sorry about your dog. I lost one of mine two years ago, and I am still sore about it. Maybe your hubby is dealing with it in his own way, he's still being wrong, but maybe it's just his way?

    In my news, I see the little things in life.

    Kid 1 and I reached for the ketchup at the same time, he got it first, and held his hand out to me with the ketchup. I told him to use it, he wouldn't, didn't speak, didn't do anything, just stayed there like a statue.

    It's a small thing in normal life, but it's big in mine. It takes a lot of work for kids to put my needs above their own. I didn't react for a while, and his arm stayed out there.

    Friggin love kid 1.
