So apparently, getting a job has made me completely useless at blogging this past year! Never fear, I decided it was time to throw in the towel at the day job and work on my teaching at the college as much as possible. That offers the ideal situation all around. Summers off!! Which not only is it nice to have summer off, but summer camp for two kids is outrageously priced so it eliminates having to take out a 2nd mortgage just to have someone to watch the girls.
There has been a lot of stuff going on since my last post! The coolest thing is Chad and Holly are expecting baby #2 literally any day now!! On the sadder side of things, there has been a lot of sad news and deaths over this year that have hit me kind of hard and made me re-think many things (one of which had impact on leaving the job and spending the time with my girls since that time can be taken away at any moment). I won't make this a sad post, I will move on from that. We also have moved into a house with an actual backyard and a bar in the basement. We are working hard to get rooms painted and get it a little more modern looking but we LOVE it!! We have had some good get togethers here already and as you all know, I love to entertain! I want to be the house that my kids and their friends want to hang out at when they are older so I know what they are doing!! We also lost Jake which was very sad but we added Daisy (a 50 some lb English Bulldog to our family). We chose her because bulldogs are not supposed to need a ton of exercise and are supposed to be pretty calm.......the joke is on us!! ;-).....she is sweet though!! Kylie is doing great at school and absolutely loves the 3rd grade!!
My goal is to keep this up and be a better updater starting today! We'll see how good I do!!
Until next time....
