Hello? Is this thing on?

This poor poor space on the Internet.

It is getting left behind.

Left behind while our life gets crazier and busier. 

I had good intentions of jumping back on the bandwagon as soon as the new year hit. I even typed out a year in review AND a resolutions post that didn't quite get finished.

But, life got crazy. Really crazy. I got a call 3 days before to start my new job a week earlier than I had planned. It was a stressful stressful weekend/week.  I may have pulled all of my hair out and am now bald.  Okay, maybe not, but I was still running around like crazy trying to figure it all out.  By the way, I'm teaching K-8 music at a small Christian school. It is going awesome now that I have a feel for the kiddos and what I want to teach. Teaching music rocks.  Just sayin'.

Back story: I got this job in the middle of the year because their original teacher quit 2 weeks into the school year and they've have two, TWO other subs since.  I have no curriculum and I had no idea (still don't really) what the kids knew from previous teachers.  It's been a pain in the butt.  Did I mention that this school is in a church and my classroom isn't really a classroom because it gets used by the church on the weekends?  It's frustrating not having your "own" classroom.  

Nick, on the other hand, got a new job the SAME week that I started a new job. And that was a total last minute decision.

It was seriously crazy around here folks.

Luckily, Ellie is just getting cuter (and way more fun).  She rolled over for the first time the day after Christmas, is starting to eat solids, and loves to play.  It's pretty dang fun.  You'll get a better update later.   When I start writing blog posts more often.

I'm trying to catch up with all of my blog reading.  I missed the blog world.  I missed the people!  I hope we can still be friends.  If I could I'd bake you all "I'm sorry" cakes to make up for my absence.

Things can only get less crazy from here on out, right?  Right...


  1. Crazy can be good sometimes, happy to see you posting! :)

  2. Pretend those kids don't know anything, except for what you teach them. I have taught without my own room, and it is a bummer, but at least you are having fun! (I hope!)

  3. Don't worry I have been completely absent from bog reading and writing too. I just started reading through a fee blogs on my phone. I miss it too but Hayes has pretty much given up napping so blogging doesn't really fit into my schedule! Haha
