1. **NOTE FROM DRAZ**:Alright – forgive me – we’re gonna get a little personal here. I was flipping through my organizer and saw in big bright letters “ANNUAL PHYSICAL DUE” coming up soon. Then I remembered that last year my lady bits doc said that since I haven’t had a bad pap in so many years – that I don’t have to come back for another 3 years if I don’t want to. What the what? Did you guys know that? No speculum in the vaginulum?
Anywhoozle – it sounds all good but really – do any of you follow this medical rule? Do you go every three years if you’ve never had a bad pap?
I had my last pap test a couple of weeks ago - and it had been three years before that. Not because I was following the rule, just because I had no insurance - and couldn't afford to go. I know, I'm bad.
Luckily, the doctor told me it was fine - and that everything looked OK. I do have to wait for a bunch of cultures to come back from the lab before I can get another IUD for birth control -because of the 3 year gap in pap smears... but I'm OK with that.
As soon as I get a job, and insurance, I will be going every year. It will be a requirement of my implant.
2. If you read, what are you reading right now? Or how about what is your fave music right now?
I love to read, and it was one of my major plans to read a ton of books this summer. I haven't, though. I've only read two books - and they were both kids books. I'm trying to get through my tween novels, so that I'll be able to put them in my classroom... if that day ever happens.
My favorite music lately has been Collective Soul, Breaking Benjamin, Meatloaf, and Black Eyed Peas... quite eclectic, arent' I?? Oh, and I also love to blast the Rent Soundtrack occasionally.... it's on my iPhone - and I love every song on it.
3. Name some of your favorite smells.
My all time favorite smell is the smell of freshly brewed coffee. I even buy coffee candles - cause I just love the smell of it.
I also love the smell of fresh, clean linens.
The smell of my kids when they're freshly showered.
Indian food. There's something about Indian food that I absolutely LOVE...
4. Showers or baths? Shampoo only or shampoo & conditioner? Shave daily or just when you start feeling and looking like an ape?
I am definitely a shower person. Every once in a blue moon, I'll jump in the tub - but not very often. We have one of those garden tubs...and while it's nice and relaxing...it's a pain in the arse to fill up. I'd much rather just jump in and out of the shower - and be done with it.
I'm a 2 in 1 kinda gal... shampoo & conditioner in one bottle. It's a time thing...it's quicker.
I shave once every other day - sometimes every other other day. Depends on what I'm doing. If I know I'm just going to be home for a few days, I don't bother with the shaving. If I'm going out - and my legs/underarms will be exposed...then I investigate the "see factor". If the stubble can be seen from a distance...I'll shave. I'd say, on average, I shave 2 times a week.
5. Repeat question: Summarize your week in real life and in blogland.
Blogland has been fine. I finished up my Skinny Cow giveaway, and declared to the world that I'd gained over 5lbs in a week. I confessed my sins, and exposed myself all commando like. Yeah, I'll wait while you go check it out.
Real life has been TOUGH!! This week has been so hard on me. Monday, I interviewed for a position with DHS. Won't know if I got the job until August.
Tuesday, I interviewed for a position working for a counseling service that provides para-professionals to a preschool that specializes in kids that are in DHS custody and/or are victims of abuse. Interview went great!!
Wednesday, I get an email from a principle asking me if I'm ESL certified... with me thinking that I'm being considered for the job. Only to find out at the end of the day, that I'm not - because...well.. I'm not ESL certified.
Yesterday, I get another call about the para-professional position, asking me for a 2nd interview at the preschool with the assistant director.
Today, I went to the 2nd interview. I spent some time in the classrooms. I observed the MHPP (Mental Health Para Professional). The position would include working on behavioral/social management with the pre-k teacher. The assistant director then informs me that they have received additional funding to add three new teaching positions - and I could be considered for one of those positions....if I choose to be.
Dilemma!! BIG TIME!! I had to decide which job to pursue. Either go with the MHPP job or apply for the teaching jobs. There's no guarantee for either... but I probably have more chance getting the MHPP job. If I chose to wait and pursue the teaching job, there's no guarantee that I'll be one that they chose to hire. I was honest with the counseling service...I want a teaching job... but, I also let them know that at the end of the day, I'd be happy with either position. Now, my fate rests in their hands. I gave the decision back to them - so they can decide if they want me or not.
The MHPP job starts immediately, has less responsibility, less money, but is still helping children.
The teaching job doesn't start until September, they haven't even started the selection process - but it's a lead teaching position for a lot more money.
I guess only time will tell if I get offered either one.
I'm done worrying about it for one day. Tonight I'm having a MUCH NEEDED girls night out with my two besties. I can't wait. I need some de-stressing time, that's fo' SURE!!
OK, my lovelies...your turn. Answer the questions on your own blog - then come share with me.
Till next time. ;)
