My Work and Week

As many of you know I am a preschool teacher.  I used to teach Elementary school but when the children came along the hours of preschool worked better with their schedule.  Plus, I brought much less work home.  This year I am working 5 days a week with 2 different two year old classes.  I have a Monday/Wednesday/Friday class and a Tuesday/Thursday class.  For most this is their first school experience and the last week has been a little stressful, to say the least.  I have a few screamers who literally cry the entire 4 hours (9-1) that they are with me.  I am trying to laugh and trying to stay positive but it has been a hard start to the school year. 

Then to top everything off, I got my bridesmaids dress yesterday in the mail (oh yeah my husband's sister is getting married in 2 weeks).  It's a size 16!  A size 16!  Now on a big day I am an 8.  I know I bitch about my weight (a lot) but this is only because I was a size 2 (or 0) in college (don't ask) and I miss that body sometimes.  But I am not a 16!  The problem I have with this is that I have to get this dress altered before the wedding and it is falling off of me.  So the dress is enormous and I look like a gold tomato. 

Yeah I might start drinking on Tuesdays.

Sounds like you need a Project Runway intervention!
Could the wrong dress been sent to you and someone else is also in a panic?

Think of it this way - what if the 16 was TOO SMALL?!?

OMG - you WERE a skinny little thing in college. Although weren't we all...

Bless you for teaching pre-school. They couldn't pay me enough to do that! I'm so glad there are good teachers like you who choose to do it. I liked teaching 11th and 12th graders and wouldn't know what to do with little kids.

Now about that dress - how could they get the measurements so messed up? So you have to pay to get it altered now? Well.
