Today, I went in to work in the afternoon, and spent the last three hours of my observation hours in the baby room, to see what their afternoons are like. I was instantly claimed by a little boy named Gavin, who was so attached, that anytime I got up to do anything, or stopped paying attention to him, he would begin to scream his head off. It was super cute. Unfortunately, Gavin was quite the drooler, and I left work feeling like I was just covered in spit. gross.
But, now that I'm done observing, I got my nametag, and I can start working short shifts during the next two weeks before my orientation begins on Valentine's Day. THAT's right! Valentine's Day. For those of you not familiar with my relationship with my hubby, Feb. 14th is our anniversary. This valentine's day will be 4 years with my man, and I was completely planning on spending the day laying in bed, feeling sorry for myself that he's not here for this one. It also marks the one-year mark from the day that we got engaged. This one's gonna be a tough one. Annd now, I have to get up in the morning and be there by 8am, with a smile on my face, and clean clothes on my body. I'm not really excited about it. I predict a meltdown during one of the many classes that day. Should be an adventure.
Anyway, for dinner tonight, I kind of ignored my healthy lifestyle choices thing, and made myself a box of Spongebob Squarepants Mac n cheese. This was MOSTLY because I love character mac n cheese, but also because my milk expired today, and so I've been trying to use it up all day. :) Good times. But, before all my health-conscience friends freak out and yell at me, I did NOT eat the whole box, like I usually would. I only ate about half the box, and put the rest in the fridge for lunch or dinner tomorrow.
Alright, time to catch up on my episodes of Conan, and then pass out after a week full of excitement!
