Last full week of work! woohoo! I went to the doctor on Thursday and she wrote me out for Tuesday of next week. I just have lost all patience for 7th grade annoying children. They are getting crazy with the holiday coming, I’m getting antsy waiting for her arrival, so it’s probably better for me to rest and get some things done for the holidays. Who knows? Maybe baby will make an appearance early. I don’t know if my husband can handle waiting after my due date. Soo I’m going in on Monday (because it’s my easiest scheduled day) and organizing myself and getting ready for a substitute. They still haven’t hired my replacement, so I will have daily subs for a while. Oh well… not my problem. I locked up my desk and important cabinets and I’ll leave it in the incapable hands of my administrators idea of a substitute.
I shouldn’t bad mouth administrators that bad – I had mentioned that in our contract it specifically states my husband and I cannot both take maternity and paternity time together because we work together. So I spoke with my principal and he was floored by that. So he told us not to worry about it. My husband will call in sick for 5 days, he won’t make a big deal about it and HR shouldn’t even notice. So thankful for understanding bosses.
