Dreading the Results – 3 Hour Glucose Test

My third pregnancy. It’s been a struggle since the beginning. But I never thought I’d be sitting at the lab, awaiting for my finger to be poked every hour for 3 hours after drinking that nasty sugary solution, again. The 1 – hour was bad enough! My previous pregnancies passed the 1 – hour glucose with flying colors, and I was so certain it would be the same this time around.

Let It Out Thursday – A Week Is Missing

I know, I know. I missed last week. With Easter weekend and getting my husband ready for his guy’s weekend, I had ran out of time. So, now I am playing catch – up.

This week has been pretty brutal in terms of the pregnancy. What a way to start off my third trimester. I ended up not going to my physical therapy appointment because I was in so much pain. The past few nights I guess I have been sleeping better in the sense that I haven’t been tossing around throughout the night. But then that leads to very painful, burning hips in the morning. Apparently, staying in one spot all night isn’t helpful. I also felt a very strong painful crack in my hip/tailbone area. I let out a very strange squeal that made my husband laugh.

Confessions Of A School Bus Driver – Last Day Of School

ConfessionsofaSchoolBusDriver - Last Day Of School

Okay, It’s not the end of the school year, yet. But since it is coming around the corner I’ve been thinking about the last day of school.

Last year I think was my most brutal year thus far. You get an attachment to the kids you’ve brought to or from school throughout the school year. Even though they may have only been on my bus for 10 minutes a day, I still enjoy seeing them and await the stories they can’t wait to tell about.

I Am Not A Supermom

You read that title right. I am not one of those moms who seem to be able to do every single thing imaginable all at once while keeping her family AND herself together. Okay, maybe that’s throwing too much into one pot, but the point is I don’t see myself being like many of my friends who do have umpteen things and come on top of it all like a boss.

But when I least expect it, I am told I’m a supermom, too. And I can’t help but internally ask, why? Is it because my kids aren’t starving and have meat on their bones? That my youngest son has a clean diaper on? Or that my oldest son knows his numbers, shapes, letters and colors?

Confessions Of A School Bus Driver – Stop Times

Confessions Of A School Bus Driver - Stop Times

I do believe the content I write should be seen by every person who is a parent or guardian to a child who is or will be riding a school bus. When these guidelines are followed not only I, the school bus driver, will be having a fantastic day, but so will you as a parent/guardian and the child. We all like our day to run as smoothly as possible, right?

What I am here to talk about is the students stop time. This is the time transportation gives you that says this is when the school bus will be at the stop to pick up the student.

This is one of the most frustrating things to deal with as a school bus driver: when a student is late to their stop. Normally, it is what it is and if the student is late, they miss the bus.

Laundry Day

Alright, I don’t have a specific day of the week that I do laundry. It’s usually when I see that I have nothing to wear and the hamper is ridiculously full that I’ll decide to wash clothes. It doesn’t make it any easier when the machine in my building is coin operated. We don’t always have 12 quarters on hand for one full load. Continue reading Laundry Day

Confessions Of A School Bus Driver – You Could Be A School Bus Driver – Pt. 1

 

ConfessionsofaSchoolBusDriver

This being the first post of Confessions of a School Bus Driver, I feel it only necessary to tell you that it is really easy to be a school bus driver.

I am not trying to take away the fact that my job can be very trying at times, and I appreciate when someone says to me they appreciate me being a bus driver, and that they could never be one.
