{Weekend wrapup}

I am so happy February is DONE and OVER with. I will even be HAPPIER when all this snow is done and over with. I am SO over the winter weather. Don't get me wrong...snow days are great to catch up on sleep and all. But the bitter coldness that lingers is not fun. We were suppose to have another storm last night/into today (which had me worrying about my interview...more on that later) but when I woke up this morning, it was a light dusting. Lies, weatherman! I should consider being a meteorologist if teaching doesn't work out. What other profession can you lie and get away with it plus still be paid?!

This weekend was nothing special of sorts, aside from it being Oscars weekend. I had a horrible experience at Ruby Tuesday's (which you can read about it here) and work was so slow on Friday night. To top it off, the takeout guy did not even call on Saturday night (he had to go to a funeral for someone in his squad) to say he wouldn't make it in. So I got pulled from sereating pizplus they were going to give me two tables. I literally ran around for 2 hours between taking care of my tables in my original section and doing takeout. In theory, it was a good idea but I got so frustrated I just gave up my section. My manager said he would financially compensate me for doing it, which I will believe it when I see it. I feel like I always get the shaft because no one else is always asked to do something like this. Plus if next Saturday is busy, I am going to be mad because I have to host. While my paycheck is going to be higher, I will lose out on pay. Hopefully the week after that I get a serving shift on Saturday night and make decent money. I was just so annoyed I went home and ate a bag of Sour Cream & Onion chips and drank an Angry Orchard.

Sunday, I found out some bad news about two of my teachers from work. One of them, the ASL teacher, got into a snow boarding accident and had to have spinal cord surgery. So horrible! She's going okay from the text update I got from my boss but still its bad. And then, the high school French teacher's father-in-law passed away suddenly yesterday morning. I feel bad for her because he is her main child-care provider and the grandparent the kids are closest to.

Last night I enjoyed watching the Oscars. Ellen DeGeneres was a great choice for a host! She cracks me up. My favorite parts? Everyone eating pizza and Ellen dressed up as the fairy godmother from The Wizard of Oz. Oh, and the selfie that crashed twitter!!

I love how she had Brad Pitt pass out the pizza.

And of course, the photo that broke Twitter!

Now it is time to go get ready for my interview. I have an interview for a leave replacement for a middle school Spanish ideal grade level I want to teach!! It was originally suppose to be at 11:30 but then they asked if I could come in at 2:30 because the principal was going to be in a meeting and wouldn't be out by 11:30. Fingers crossed. I hate even saying anything about interviews because I don't want to get my hopes up but I am tired of going on them and nothing coming about.
