here i am!!!

I should be ashamed of myself...but alas, I'm really not...just busy!!
I could try to fit in all of what has transpired over the last few months, but forget it!
here are the highlights:
--in June, I got to go to Nashville/Franklin to hang with a huge fun bunch of crazy artsy here.
--in July, i continued to work part time for dad at Northwestern Mutual and helped out part time at the Sylvan up in Palm Harbor, my sweet niece turned 2!!!, and I got to go to CHA's (Craft and Hobby Association) big trade show with my girls from my design team at see us...we are a HOOT! We giggled A LOT and got to see lots of pretty new scrappy things.
--Then, in August,....and sort of partly in July as well..... I got a new job!! woohoo! I am now working back at Northside Christian School in St. Pete. I really never thought I'd be in the classroom again, but God likes to pretend He doesn't hear me when I tell him what my plans are. I am teaching the Yearbook/Journalism classes (2 middle school, 2 high school) and supervising 2 high school study halls. The kids have been great so far and I'm looking forward to helping create a fantastic yearbook!
--I'm also teaching part time at the Sylvan in St. Pete and apartment hunting so I can get out of Dad's house. :)
So, here we are in September! I am happy, enjoying catching up with old friends from St. Pete, making new ones, loving living so close to Kennedy(and my sister, of course:) ) and trying to get my body accustomed to getting up at 6:30 am....especially since I think that time of the morning is just unnecessary. coffee sometimes helps.
Things I'm looking forward to:
--Dad's birthday coming up
--going to see my sister and her family in their new digs in Atlanta, and celebrating my nephew's FIRST birthday! wowzas!
--going to see this fab girl...cannot wait! we are kindred spirits, i've decided.
--finding a new place to live
--cooler weather
--holidays coming up and lots of fun family time

Ok, so I may or may not get better at this....but thanks for reading anyway! xo

I was yearbook editor in high school! I didn't realize you were teaching yearbook. And I coached debate. So now you can vent at me about work and I may actually understand why you are upset! All of the other girls have jobs I don't get! Glad you blogged, do it again!
