Bucky’s 5/8/18

We had to drive to a town north of us to the DMV today, which is near Bucky’s. Robbie got his favorite pulled pork sandwich. I was able to finally get my Texas license. Third time and all the papers! Robbie was upset because his Oklahoma license has expired since he hasn’t been driving, so he has to take a 6 hr online driving course and take the driving test again. He could have gotten a Texas ID card today, but he didn’t like that idea.

We also both got library cards. You can never have enough books!

I passed the first Texas teacher test that I took last week and I might be able to waive the other tests. Loud cheers! It is too late to get a refund for my test this week, so I’ll still test, but will hopefully skip the other two tests. Yay!

Sleepy Robbie and New Job 4/27/18

Just like last round, Robbie has a fever, rash, chills, tired, and miserable.

I interviewed in Katy, TX today and they called later and offered me a job. I will be teaching special education in the fall. We went out to eat to celebrate. Robbie wanted to come along, but we should have encouraged him to stay home and rest. I hate seeing him so sick again.

Relaxing Sunday 4/15/18

Robbie is enjoying a relaxing day. It is a little windy today, buy sunny. He is doing well, he just gets tired very quickly.

I continue to study for the Texas teacher tests that I’m taking in May. I am trying to relearn Algebra and Geometry for one of the tests. I’ve watched many You Tube math videos. They really need to have a national teaching certificate!

I’m also working on updating my resume. If anyone has any connections to Katy or Cypress school districts, let me know. I’m hoping to go back teaching in the fall, which will be my 30th year of teaching!

Another Day at MD Anderson 4/3/18

There was already a long line of cars when we arrived at 7AM. Robbie got a few more hours of fluids. He is very tired and also fighting a cold this week. He slept part of the morning, which helped to pass the time for him. I’m back studying for the Texas state teacher tests. I signed up today to take three tests in May. I was hoping to test this month, but they were already booked.

Centennial Gardens 11/6/17

Robbie and I walked across the street from our apartment to Centennial Gardens. We didn’t stay long, since he forgot part of his camera and he was tired from the walk. 

His blood counts are coming back nicely and his cold is getting better.  

I got my temporary teaching certificate today, which gives me a year to take all the tests. 

Studying for Texas Teacher Exams 11/2/17

The first two study guides came today, so I can get ready to take 4 teacher certification tests in Texas. It has been just a few years since college, so I have a lot of needless studying ahead of me. I’m already certified to teach in Wisconsin, Ohio, Iowa, and Oklahoma. You would think they could give me a certificate without further testing! 

Robbie has been relaxing all day and continues to cough. I’ll be glad when he is over this cold. When he gets a cough, I always start worrying about his lungs. Thankfully his fever is gone today.
