Off topic, earlier I posted about how I am giving up fast food for the month of December. Confession: I ate a happy meal from McDonalds on the 2nd. In my defense I didn't decide to do the challenge until the next day. I went to McDonalds Monday AND Tuesday. I did not fall off the wagon though! On Monday I went through the drive through & got 2 large diet cokes, 4 large fries, & a hot and spicy...I was the only one in the car ha. Not a single thing was for me. I got some food for a couple teachers & some students who were staying after school. Then on Tuesday I went back once again so I could pick up 2 large diet cokes, 1 large powerade, 2 McDoubles, 2 hot & spicys, 2 large fries, & a 20 piece chicken nugget for another teacher who was buying for a couple teachers & students. Luckily I wasn't alone in the car that time ha. I was so proud of myself for not getting or eating any of it. (Even after I knew there would be extra nuggets & considered it.) Then this morning I even turned a teacher down when she asked if I wanted her to get me breakfast from McDonalds. I was seriously craving Whataburger breakfast today during school though. Can December just end already?!

San Diego? Me?
Yesterday I had a recruiter for the Marines come and speak to my classes. By about 3rd period he seriously had me almost convinced to join. The Air Force or Air Guard is something I seriously considered this past summer. If I didn't get a teaching job that was my plan because there was no way I could keep working a part time job. The recruiter & I were talking after my classes and he gave me a form to fill out. It's some educators workshop where I would basically learn what the students go through during boot camp I believe. It's not a for sure because there is some sort of selection process but if I'm selected I would get to go to San Diego in July...FOR FREE! They pay for airfare, food, & hotel. The only thing I would have to pay for is anything I choose to buy as a souvenir. Well, & I'd have to pay for gas because they fly out of Houston & come July I'll be back in MN. But are you kidding me? All I have to pay for is gas & I get to go to San Diego for free? I am really hoping I get picked to go.
