tests.... :-(

I am working on becoming AL State certified to teach. I am discovering that it is time consuming and expensive to do this! I have to take the praxis test.... about $90 ( and the study guide-$20), the APTTP test... $130.. ( downloaded a free study guide :-) ), I must be finger printed.. $53.... and pay for the whole process itself...$20.... Do you know how much scrap stuff I could buy for $313??? Or gas? or food ? It drives me crazy!!! But I will jump through all my hoops, and become state certified. Maybe even get a job next year. I am getting excited about teaching again. I really do enjoy it.

Is anyone else getting tired of hearing about the "man" who is pregnant??? IT IS NOT A MAN!! It is a confused woman.... looks like a man.... wants to be a man..... but still has all her girl parts. Why the big deal?

Off to clean some windows.... can't remember the last time I did that....

Oh I hate thinking of these tests. I know you'll do find though - it's just a pain to spend the money on them, isn't it? I'd rather buy the scrapping supplies, or gas too!! And I haven't heard about the pregnant woman/man - hmm, need to go check that out!! See you tonight, right?

No kidding about the pregnant man thing-I was thinking the same thing. So What!!! Now if a man actually grew a uterus-THAT would be newsworthy!!! How are you guys?

michael & jen are gonna be in town? We should try to get everyone together! Except we can't do anything the night of the 16th-but one other night I would love to get the "old" group together!

that would be great!! We no longer have the 425 number- get in touch with Jason at the college ( I'd rather not put my cell # here!)!

My daughter is dealing with the same thing. I will be praying for you. You all have a safe trip.
