Thoughts for Tuesday

Happy Tuesday Everyone! :)
I hope you're enjoying your week as much as I'm enjoying mine. There's just something magical about Spring Beak when you're a working mama! So far I'm loving being able to not have an alarm set, not having to rush around in the morning getting ready for work, and not having to miss one second with my little snuggle bunny! 
I have some thoughts that I'd like to share with you since it's time for Thoughts for Tuesday!

~Thought 1~
I love Daylight Savings. I don't have any problem adjusting to it and I don't think I ever have. An extra hour of sunlight is awesome and it just a sign that we're getting closer to summer! This means that I'll be able to take the baby for walks after school and I won't have to worry about it getting dark!  It was weird though putting JB down to be Sunday night and it was still dark out. But no worries, she ended up having a freak out/cry session/screaming fit and was up until 10pm. So, all my work and planning that went into her going to bed early Saturday night to help adjust her was all thrown out of the window. But, as I've said, parenting is a learning curve! 

~Thought 2~
Change is good. I found out last Friday that my position as Primary Reading Resource teacher at my school is getting cut. Honestly, I knew that it was coming. I had received a heads-up that schools were looking to eliminate two reading resource teachers, plus I knew my school wanted to get a science resource teacher - so they have to free up some Title 1 funds. I'm looking into job possibilities now and will be sending resumes out next week. Over the past couple of months, I have been toying with the thought of getting a job in a school a little bit closer to home anyways. I still have a job in the district, but it gets messy when you have to transfer to another school. While I will miss working with my students, it's time for mama to spread her wings and fly to a new nest! I'm chanting the whole "Life is difficult, but God is good" thing right now...

~Thought 3~
I want a Fit Bit. I've been wanting one for a couple of weeks, but we're trying to save every penny right now. Since I'm getting back into the whole fitness-routine, I'm hoping that I can sweet talk my husband into buying me one. I would love to see how many steps I take during the day as well as all the other fun stuff that Fit Bits can do. Is Fit Bit the best one out there? I know there are a few different versions and I want to make sure I get a good one! Anyone have a suggestion as to which one I should invest in?

~Thought 4~ 
I'm lucky. I'm so, so lucky to have a husband who works as hard as my husband does. He texted me this morning saying that he had 30 hours of overtime last week. That's insane! He works so many hours and at times, it's nearly impossible to do the whole working-mama thing. Over the weekend he drove from VA to SC (6 hours) and then from SC all the way back to Tampa. In one day. Yep. 12+ hours of driving. Trust me, it wasn't by choice. We both spent hours looking for flights and because of the northeast snow storm over the weekend and spring break, flights were booked! Luckily he's in town for the first part of this week, but the second half is up in the air. I pray that he's home all week long. I love being our happy little family of three and it's a challenge when it's just me and JB! 

Well, those are my thoughts for Tuesday. I hope you are able to stop, take a moment, and reflect on your thoughts today!
