Outside the Blogging Life

This week nothing really exciting happened. The teachers were on strike two days last week, Tuesday and Thursday, which meant I participated in Professional Development that the organization I work for e-mailed us to complete. On Thursday they organized a workshop for all educators to attend. This is where I begin to sound pompous, but I found the workshop we attended to be very redundant. I did an activity similar to the workshop when I was in school for my Child and Youth Worker diploma. I told my family about it, and they expressed to me that it’s time I leave the field because I’m better than this job. I have to agree with them. I find myself eye-rolling and finding my line of work to be unstimulating. I want a challenge and to feel like I’m using my skills and knowledge.

Tonight my dad, sister and I had a lovely dinner. My sister’s divorce got finalized earlier this week and we celebrated with ribs, mashed potatoes, beans, and a Hungarian dessert called palacsinta. Palacsinta are Hungarian crepes with cottage cheese, strawberries and a dusting of icing sugar. Normally Hungarians use Túró iistead of cottage cheese, but it doesn’t exist in North America.

On Monday and Tuesday the teachers are on strike again, which means that I don’t get to work my regular hours those days except for Monday afternoon. I have to go in and organize my cart, and do program planning for my kiddos. Other than that, it’s another week. Friday is Valentine’s Day, Andre and I decided to spend the night at home with homemade cheese fondue. We’re not getting each other gifts this year, and we’d rather spend it at home with each other than eating out at a restaurant packed with other people.

That’s all I’ve got planned and worked out this week outside of the blogsphere this week.

Do you guys have any plans for this upcoming week?
