For most people, moving in April is no big deal. But when you're a teacher and a student, it is a pain in the butt!

First, there is the issue of leaving my class before the year is over. My principal was nice about it, but doesn't want to tell my parents until the day I leave. And she wants me to have a party with them on my last day. So looks like I'm throwing my self a going away party with my kids. I hate parties with my kids. It means a huge mess and I can't handle a huge mess and sticky hands in my classroom. I THINK that she has a sub for me after I leave, but as of last Wednesday, nothing was official. So, I'm trying to get things in some sort of order before I go so that my kids are taken care of.

Then, there's my class that I'm taking. I'm just taking one class. It's a class on teaching literacy. It's amazing really. But it is a ton of work. Well, since I'm leaving the class 4 weeks early, I have to turn EVERYTHING in early. That means 3 case study notebooks, 1 class reflection, a personal belief statement on teaching literacy AND my normal weekly homework. All due Thursday. And what am I doing...playing on the computer.

Oh yeah, we have to be out of our apartment by Tuesday and it's a mess.

It's going to be a long week. It's a good thing Anthony's home to clean!

The movers came and took away all our stuff today. It was really hard to decide what to keep with us and what to send with them. You see, we're not so sure when we will get to see our stuff again, because we're not sure where we are going to live. (Sigh.) Being a new military wife, I'm beginning to realize, I don't get to have much control. I think God's trying to teach me something. So now, I'm in an empty apartment with an air mattress, my computer, and a small portion of my clothes. And we have food. I couldn't let them take my food.
