08:52 am - Hump Up!
It's hump day and I'll tell you what...I just cannot drag my ass to the gym. I've had good intentions of going every day this week and it just didn't happen. What happened to all my motivation. I feel like poo because I haven't been working out yet, I don't go. Grrrr! What is it going to take. I need help!!

In other news, I am sitting here at Clark and thinking...what the heck am I going to do with my day. I get pretty bored here easily. I've worked here for 6 years but never realized how much I disliked it until I started in the classroom. I love the energy that a school brings. Even though it is sixth grade, I am still excited to get back into teaching. Mid August :)

Well, still no movement on my condo. Pray for it to sell please...

07:36 pm - I aM eMpLoYeD!!
After just finishing my Masters program, I have a new job. I was offered a contract as a 6th grade teacher at Harvest Valley Elementary. It is 6th grade and that frightens me. But, I have a teaching job....yay! My report to work day is August 16th. Until then, I will still be working at Clark Security. Man, I defnitely remember why I decided to go back to school. I really hate working in an office now. After spending 15 weeks with those kiddos, I am confident I found my calling.

In other news, things on our brand new house are progressing well. :) We did the frame walk through last Friday. It actually looks like a house now. As far as the sell of my condo...it is slow going. A friend of mine might be interested in a lease to own so that would be cool because I would still get the tax benefits.

Roger is out of town in Santa Barbara with his team. They are in a b-ball amp up there all week so I have the house to myself (well, and the cats). :) If it weren't so hot, I might think about getting some things done.

Okay, that is all for now....

08:55 am - Things...
...Well my condo officially is on the market. Kind of scary/sad to think of moving out. We have a big huge new house on the way but, I really like my condo. It is a cute place...my very first place! I listed it at $325k and I hope that someone will buy it for $320 soon. Roger and I could then move into an apartment and save some money for furniture. THe house isn't supposed to be finished until Sept 30th so we do have some time. Tonight, I need to go home and box up some of the things I have and don't use all the time to make my house look less cluttered. It's not clutter really but I have been watching "Sell this house" on TLC and learning a lot of little tricks to entice buyers. Hopefully, they will work.

In terms of the job situation, no bites yet. I sent about 14 applications out there. Only two have been reviewed. You do it online and can see when the district reviews them. Apparently, school districts don't move like the business world. In business, if they like you they jump at you for a interview. Anyway, I am crossing my fingers. Thursday, I am going up to Temecula to go school to school to drop off resumes. Hopefully, that will help as well. I have only been subbing a bout one day a week. I really don't like it. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE teaching but loathe subbing. When you sub, you have no idea what you are getting yourself into each day. The phones rings at 5 am and tells you were to go. When you get there you have no idea what was left for you. If you know me, you know that I like a plan and to have control of that plan. When your subbing, you are at the mercy of the teacher. I hate that. I subbed in my old class yesterday and I LOVED that. I miss those kids. It was a great day.

Well, I am at Clark today and I better get to work. I am VERY sleepy so I hope I don't fall asleep here at my desk :) Later gator...

03:34 pm - Stop Waiting...
In a week or two
I would have been ready
I would have known what to say
But I missed my chance
When the words I love you
Came just a little too late
In a week or two
I was gonna bring you diamonds
In a week or two
A long, long string of pearls and
We would've run down to the river at night
Sailed away, just me and you
In a week or twoA little more time
Was all I needed
But somehow fall became spring
But put off today
What you can do tomorrow
Sometimes you don't do a thing
In a week or two
I was gonna bring you diamonds
In a week or two
A long, long string of pearls and
We would've run down to the river at night
Sailed away, just me and you
In a week or two
These words in my heart never had a chance to be heard
But I'm telling you now for all that it's worth
In a week or two
I was gonna bring you diamonds
In a week or two
A long, long string of pearls and
We would've run down to the river at night
Sailed away, just me and you
In a week or two

09:09 am - Whole lot of shakin' going on...
I KNOW, it has been a long time since I have updated this thing. A lot has been going on. Here is the summary:

*I finished my Master's and Credential program. You can call me Nicole Gagne, M.A. Education
*Roger and I put a deposit on a soon to be built house in Temecula
*I'm applying for teaching jobs next year
*I'm back working part time at Clark
*I will be putting my condo up for sale

1st: I am done with school. yay! I am totally excited to be done. Last Tuesday was my last day of student teaching and of my classes. I turned in my 42 pages Teacher Work Sample and left. Whoohoo, grades have been posted and I am finishing with a 3.92. Sweet! Now, I have started the application process and hopefully, I will get some interviews soon.

2nd: Roger and I went looking for fun at an area in Temecula called Wolf Creek. Turns out housing is very well priced up there and we like the location (it is growing so teaching jobs are more likely). The house we put the deposit on is in the division called Sequoia. It is a four bedroom, 2400 square feet brand new home. It is only a slab of concrete right now. We get to pick out everything: floors, cabinets, etc. It should be ready Sept/Oct. I'm sooo exited. My lame furniture is going to look ridiculous in that house.

3rd: I'm very excited about all the things happening in life. Nervous, but very excited. Next, maybe a ring and a wedding. Not for awhile though. :)

08:04 am - Happy Birthday to me!
Well, I am 28 today. It doesn't really feel too much like my birthday. I guess when you get older you don't get as excited as you did when you were younger. I am at work today (Clark) because it is srping break for the school. I have this whole week off. I still have, however, class tonight :( I can't believe they scheduled class for my birthday. Two weeks from tonight, I am done with school! I really can't believe it. Sooo exciting.

I had my birthday party on Saturday night, it was a lot of fun. I had some people over and then we went down to Mulvaney's (the country bar near my house). I had too many shots and was feeling ichy on Easter. I just can't do shots. My friends got me a lot of nice things.

Next Tuesday is Roger's 32nd birthday. Happy Birthday to him too.

I am looking into some houses in the Temecula area. That place is really growing and there are some nice houses their that we could qualify for if we pooled our money. I can't wait to go look at them. I love looking at model homes. I need to start applying for some jobs. I will do that this week.

Okay, off to work.

08:58 am - Happy Saturday!
Yeah, I was able to actually get my butt out of bed this morning. I little later than I wanted to but, I am here. Doesn't look like I have too much to do so I am not thinking it will be too long. Hmmm, what is new to report.

I have three weeks and four days until I am done with my MAsters!!! Whoohoo! I am super excited. One of those weeks is spring break. My mom is planning on throwing a party for me at Incahoots after graduation. That should be fun because my family will be there.

I have been working out again for the past three weeks. I can't even believe how far I have let myself slip. I feel disgusted with myself and I do not like feeling like that! I want Roger to work out too. We both need to. So, last night I made him a deal that I am not so sure he can resist. Hopefully, it works :)

That's all for now..

08:38 am - I'm SO not good at this journal thing anymore...
....sorry to those of you that may actually read this. I just haven't felt like wrtiting on this thing. My days feel super long these days with student eaching and homework. I have FOUR WEEKS UNTIL I AM FINISHED with my classes. Whoohoo! Super exciting. Next week in my class, I take over teaching everything. I am not as nervous as the first go round because I feel very comfortable with my master teacher. She is very sweet and kind.

We received a new student on Friday. His name is Joey and he is from a group foster home. I want to adopt him. He is the cutest little thing. He look so nervous when he walked in. My heart was aching for him. He was in these beat up clothes (very noticable in Poway were the kids were designer duds). Anyway, we hugged him and welcomed him. Throughout the day, he tried so hard to answer all the questions I was throwing out to the class. He was wrong most of the time (he is below grade level on the academic scale). But, it was still very cute. Teaching is going to be a heartache for me in times like these.

My 28th birthday is coming up in a couple of weeks. I can't believe it! Feels like time is flying by. I want to get a treo phone for my birthday. They are expensive but, I really feel disorganized now because I don't have a computer in front of me to make sure I make all my appointments, etc.

Well, I better get going.

09:46 am - Why? by Jason Aldene
It's 3 AM and I finally say
I'm sorry for acting that way
I didn't really mean to make you cry
Oh baby, sometimes I wonder why
Does it always have to come down
To you leaving
Before I'll say "I love you"
Why do I always use the words
That cut the deepest
When I know how much it hurts you
Oh baby why, do I do that to you
I know I'd never let you walk away
So why do I push you 'til you break
And why are you always on the verge of good-bye
Before I'll show you how I really feel inside
Does it always have to come down
To you leaving
Before I'll say "I love you"
Why do I always use the words
That cut the deepest
When I know how much it hurts you
Oh baby why, do I do that to you
Why do I always use the words that cut the deepest
When I know how much it hurts you
Oh baby why, do I do that to you
Why do I do that to you
