Yes, I'm here...

Just wanted to let you know that I am still here and extremely busy! I accepted a new job at an elementary school teaching art and have been busy trying to get my classroom pulled together, lessons planned and meet all the new people. I know I've been missing around here for a while, but I've been keeping up with your blogs and checking in on you. Please forgive me if I'm not prolific in my posting over the next couple of weeks, as I get back into the swing of things. The first couple of weeks of school (as many of you know) are certainly tiring and in the evenings I might not be inclined to get out my computer and share my life.

Plus, I try not to talk a lot about my job on my blog. It's just not a good idea.

Here are a couple quick takes for you:

  • My mom picked apples on Saturday and then we made pies. Charlie was thrilled.
  • As a gift for my new job, Charlie bought me a Cricut! It's purple.
  • I think I've decided to get an iPhone.
  • I got new glasses today. They're purple.
  • Do you see that purple is a theme here?
  • I need to get off of here and type up my lesson plans, but I'm sharing with you!
  • We're planning on adding a deck/carport to the side of our house, but have to file for a variance due to the proximity of the property line.
  • Oh...I've been watching episodes of Criminal Minds and James Van Der Beek (aka, Dawson from Dawson's Creek) played a veeeeeeerrrry creepy serial killer. Interesting to see him as something else.
  • I currently have pink sheets on my bed. They make me happy and Charlie doesn't care.
  • I'm getting a pedicure next week...I think.

Well, that's the news from around here. Hope all is well with you all out there in Blogland!

I'm so happy for you and your new job! I've wondered how you were doing so many times lately. Today, we learned once again that we weren't chosen. We were 1 out of 5 families presented. The family chosen was chosen on account of their religious preference. Can't argue with that.

Praying you all are matched soon.
