Do You Want the Good News or the Bad News First?

The good news...

Today was great! I subbed in a 1st grade classroom and absolutely loved it! The kids were great, and my nerves were under control. I owe today's success to God, 'cause it wouldn't have been so great without God guiding me through the day. I pulled together everything that I have learned in education and the skills worked. There was a handful of students that needed constant redirecting, but nothing too hard. One of them ate up ever positive reinforcement I gave them. That makes me feel good personally, but then wonder why they are so thirsty for it. The teacher I subbed for left everything easy to find and explained everything well so I didn't have a problem. And best of all, I get to go back to that same class tomorrow! I'm really looking forward to that! :)

And for the bad news...

My car has been acting crazy lately. The other day I noticed my speedometer stopped working, and with that my power locks don't auto lock when I start driving 'cause it doesn't know my car is in motion. Then I noticed that the green arrow that shows when to shift up doesn't light up anymore either. And the odometer isn't working either. Yesterday the service engine light came on also. And then to top it off, today on the way home from school I noticed the check engine light was off, but then as I was turning (or trying to turn) off of the busy road I was on my steering decided to go out, and then my car wouldn't go when I put on the gas. So I coasted as far away from the intersection as possible and forced my steering to the right. I called Tim to pick me up and after a few minutes tried starting my car to see if it would go, and it did. I was able to get the car home. Needless to say, my car has decided to quit on me all at once.

And to top all of that off...the lady at the Saturn dealership sold us a warranty that she said would be good at any GM certified dealership, 'cause we told her that the closest Saturn dealership is 2 hours away, and so she gave us her word we could go to a GM. Well, she is wrong. I called every dealership in town, and the GM certified one will not honor a Saturn warranty. Our weekend is packed, so sometime next week Tim will call the lady and see about getting our money back for paying for a warranty that wont do us any good, then decide how to financially pay to fix my car.

And I'm off to bed. I'm exhausted, and should sleep really well.
Oh! My box of gifts came in from my parents and Katelin today. I was so excited to get it! I'm going to use my new cute summer purse tomorrow, and I already started eating the beef jerky and tried the gum. Yumm! Thank you Mom, Dad and Katelin for my presents!
Now off to bed! :)
