Hello world!

Hello there!  My name is Shelli and this is, well, this is a first in my life-writing for other people to see.  Not used to other people caring what I have to say, let alone reading it on line.  Anyway–after talking to my mom and my sister, and I talk to them frequently-they always say I should write stuff down for a book someday.  I guess it’s all in the way that I tell it to them that they were trying to get me to do something with all this crap I keep telling them.  So, here I am.  Love it or leave it-I guess I am trying it out.  If ya like it, great!  If ya don’t, maybe you will keep on reading it and something will strike you one day and you’ll keep on reading it.

Well, a little bit about me.  I am a 30-something, unemployed teacher.  I teach:  Middle and High School–Language Arts grades 6-12 (primarily), grades 5-9 Language Arts, Science, Math, and Social Studies, and Exceptional Student Education (ESE) grades K-12.  Most recently, I taught in a Juvenile Detention Center for incarcerated boys 13-19, with an average length of stay for 6-9 months.  And that was my first job after graduating from college!  No one can say I don’t challenge myself, right?

Doing things ass-backwards, as my grandma says, has always sorta been my way.  married first, kids second, college third, job 4 months after graduating fourth, now unemployed-not part of the plan.  I live in the Sunshine State near the ocean.  Looking back, whodathunkit?  But if life keeps handing me lemons, there is no more lemonade I can make, so I may be blogging from my car in the Dunkin Donuts parking lot.  Okay, maybe not, Denny’s is warmer and they have Wi-Fi!  JK, but really, something’s gotta give soon.  There is only so much laundry, errands, cooking, and cleaning one can do, really!  There must be some kind of limit.  I do not know how the service industry does it-well, yeah, I do-they get paid.  I get, “where’s my underwear? why didn’t you wash my skinny jeans? why can’t we have tacos? Can you bring my Science notebook to school, cuz we’re having a test today!”  No paycheck for that!  Though, I guess that’s what I signed up for when I had kids and got married-cuz he is really a big, 42-year old kid.  I can’t complain too much, though.  I have a house to live in, food to eat, kids and a husband who love me, even if they can’t get a new Nintendo DS-all the 360 games they want-or a new computer.  I guess I have blogged enough for the time being, not to mention that I am watching my Eagles lose to Arizona right now, I need to yell at the TV some more.  I figure if I am yelling and typing at the same time, some of my frustration will accidentally make it on the page and then I will get in some kind of cyber-world trouble, not meaning to.

Well, everyone take care and I guess I will be writing later.  When I figure out how to tag stuff and make different categories, I will be a little more proficient at this blogging thing.
