boy, working sure does put a damper on one's blogging now doesn't it?


Wow...sorry for the long absence. Between being sick and finishing up my class and then working all this week, I haven't blogged much. Sorry about that. I think about it...and want to...but I think I've mentioned before, my blog posts almost always are inspired by a photo. A photo that *I* took, more specifically. And seeing as how I haven't taken any photos for weeks my inspiration for writing is lacking. Thank goodness for Pinterest, eh? Tons of inspiration there!

So my patience and persistence has finally paid off in the job department...I finally got a permanent position at the jr. high. I am an aide in the special ed class that I've been subbing in for the past two weeks. Now it's official...I'm not just a sub. I'm an actual employee. Finally! It seems I've been at this for so long...

It rained yesterday and today and I loved it. I'm sad it's done.

Have you been watching American Idol? I keep forgetting it's on. But I watch it when I remember...

Tomorrow is my dad's birthday...we're gonna have some dinner with the family...and of course, cake. Chocolate, his favorite. And presents.

We ate broccoli from our garden again. I haven't done anything with the chard. Or the collards. I don't know what to do. And I haven't really looked into it. I did see a recipe on Paula Deen the other day (she looks like she's slimming down, dontcha think?)...collards, white beans, turkey sausage...it looked pretty good. I think I'll give it a try this weekend since I have all the ingredients.

Anyway...that's about it for now...I've been falling asleep before nine every night...and I don't think tonight is any different. I am ti-ired. xo

I so agree! Even working from home has put a serious halt to my blog writing. I think of things I would share all day long, but I just never have time to write it. I do miss your posts.

oh, such good news!! wooo-hooo. Is it a full-time position?

as you may know - I am taking a break from blogging for a while. I even deleted my blog for lots of different reasons. I think things change when you are "out" everyday. Priorities shift - at least they did for me.

the girls and I are watching AI. I always get sucked into watching with them. Oh, I go to bed at 9 most nights too :)

Congratulations on the job!! Those kids are very lucky to have you in class with them:-). Don't apologize or feel guilty about not blogging. Living life is much more important and we'll always be here when you come back to check in:-).
