Look Both Ways

School is out in one day and 105 minutes.  But who's counting?

I haven't been able to blog, let alone breathe, for the last year.  I was in the crunch of student teaching and then my first teaching job and it really left not much else.  I spent every available moment with my family.  I guess that worked because over the weekend I realized that it was the anniversary (that isn't even the right word) of the weekend when I thought I hated my husband.  Yes, that's right.  One year ago, Memorial Day weekend, I thought that I was done with him. Ready to hit the hills and start anew.

So much can change in a year.  And luckily, that phase in life passed.  And we are quickly approaching the days when I realized that it was worth staying and it was worth fighting for....and maybe we'll celebrate.

I wish that I could fill in all of the gaps between now and then, but I would be crazy to try.  A day hasn't gone by that I didn't think of a blog that I wanted to publish.  And at the same time, I feel like I need to retrain myself on blog writing.  Who knows if I even "have it" it like riding a bike?

Are the readers still there?

My last day of school is Monday the 4th.  Kinley's last day of day care is on Friday the 8th.  I am taking 4 days of a mommy vacation, of sorts.  I am going to be reading (I have a whole pile of books to get to) and blogging.  Oh, I can't wait to sit and write for a whole day.  And read!  I have so many blogs to catch up on!

I hope that you're still along for the ride, it's far from over!

I'm here, I'm here! Yay!!! I've been wondering when you will have enough time to come back. :) I'm happy to hear that things at home are happy. Of course time with your family is more important, but I sure missed reading your posts (and seeing adorable pictures of little Miss KG). :)

Still here Joy! I want to hear all about your first year teaching! Do you have a job for the fall yet, or are you still figuring that all out? I hope Kinley is doing well!
