Hello everyone! This is me, Leila. I love this photo because I look so serious and well, it makes me giggle because I’m hardly ever serious!
Today has been such a wonderful day so far. The weather this morning I thought would put a damper on things but it really hasn’t. It’s a little chilly but the sun has come out so all is good. Since my car has a flat my brother-in-law drove me to work but he had to drop my sister off at work first. I thought I was going to be late to work but I ended up being two minutes early! I made two pieces of toast with jam on them when I got to work and it was seriously amazing! The kids have been super good today. We have been reading books and playing with toys pretty much all morning. We went to the gym a lot sooner than we normally do so that threw off our schedule just a little bit so we completely forgot about morning snack but they weren’t acting out so that’s good. I do feel bad that they didn’t get their snack though. The other teacher is going through a rough time right now and I feel really bad for her and I really wish there was something I could do to help her but I can’t so the most I can do is be here for her. One of the teachers from the Infant Room deposited my check into my account since we use the same bank. She pretty much rocks for doing that for me! It stopped me stressing out about how I was going to cash my check since I don’t have a car and my brother-in-law wasn’t going to be able to come get me until I get off at six, and my bank closes at six. So, I’m very thankful that she did that for me today. My check ended up being a really good check so I no longer have a negative balance, I can pay my phone and get that turned back on, AND I have found a new - used tire that will only cost me $30 to $50 so I can get my car going again. The kids are still napping. I only have one that is awake right now but the rest of them are still sleeping. I have eight kids today but it’s been going really smooth. I’m glad they are all still napping. They are all usually up around 1:30 so that means my afternoon should go really smooth as well. I bet they will be excited to color.
I don’t know what my plans are for the weekend. I saw this persons profile on facebook and we had two mutual friends that I just thought it was weird because I didn’t see the connection so I requested them as a friend and we started e-mailing eachother and getting to know eachother and then we started texting eachother. They were in a relationship when I first started talking to them and I don’t know if I want to be in a relationship right now but I do find this person to be really rad. I finally met them in person last weekend. The only thing that kind of stinks is even if I wanted to get to know her in a more relationship type way I don’t think that’s going to happen. A friend from high school (one of our mutual friends) is trying to get with them and even though I’m not as close of friends with them anymore and it seems like the person I like doesn’t want to get with them in that way, I still feel like it’s wrong of me to try. They are also in this really weird situation with a family that they nanny for and I just find the whole situation really strange. I don’t know the family and I don’t know all the details…but from what I’ve heard it just sounds really weird. I don’t know though. I can’t be someone to judge since I don’t know all the details and I’m glad they want to help this family but at the same time I would be very cautious because it just sounds a little fishy. However, even as a friend this person is totally rad and I think they are an awesome person and they have a great personality. They seem very compassionate and they are like me when it comes to wanting to help people. It seems like they have a really good head on their shoulders and I’m glad that I’m getting to know them.
I’m glad today has been such a good friday. Oh and today is Good Friday…haha look at that! Well, I hope everyone else has a good day.
Today was a pretty good day. I’ve had a headache most of the day but that’s okay. We didn’t have 2 of our kids and tomorrow we won’t have 2 of them again and one of them will be leaving pretty early so we will only have 7 kids instead of 10. Actually we might only have 6 because today one of our kids had a rash and the chicken pox is going around so I don’t know if she will be there tomorrow.
Today one of the kids threw a toy over the fence while we were outside and I went out to go get the toy. It landed in a patch of green clovers and you want to know what I found in that patch of green clovers? A 4 leaf clover! I wasn’t even looking for it. I picked up the toy and then I went to walk away but for some reason I felt like I should take a look into the clovers and I saw it! So I picked it and now have it. I should have stuck it to a piece of tape though because now it’s all withered. :( But I don’t care I have a 4 leaf clover!
Tomorrow is going to be a hectic day. I have to pay my bank $100 to get out of negative, $100 to get my phone turned back on, and buy a new tire. I don’t know how much that is going to be but I hope I can find a used one for really cheap because I don’t know how much my check is going to be and well $200 is already gone and I have to be able to buy gas to last me two weeks until I get paid again.
However, I get paid 3 times this month!!!! YES!!!!!
That’s all for now. I hope you guys have a great night.
