Bad blogger!!

I've been a bad, bad blogger. I blame pinterest. I spend hours surfing the bazillion crafty ideas and then spend more hours "crafting." My problem is, there are so many things I want to make - I have half a dozen projects going on at once. Not to mention cleaning techniques that I'm trying out. Oh yeah, and hairstyles. But, it keeps me busy!!!

So, here are some bullets to play catch up:
  • I may ramble and repeat myself - so bear (bare?) with me!!
  • I went for a fill November 7th. I really think I may have found my sweet spot with this one. My head hunger is still there - but I can't eat as much. (A child's cheeseburger - patty only - lasted me for three meals!!!)
  • This whole work catastrophe, resigning from my dream job, career future up in the air may have actually been a blessing in disguise.
    • I've been "working" a lot at my grandparents. Believe it or not, I'm actually making more money NOT teaching!!
    • I got a letter in the mail yesterday detailing my final paycheck. Apparently, resigning is going to bring in some serious dinero. They have to pay me "out of my contract" and I don't pretend to understand all the mumbo jumbo...but I will definitely enjoy depositing that big old check!!
    • I found out today that the principal of my former dream job is resigning at the end of the semester. And rumor has it that 8 others will be putting in their resignations soon. I guess I got out just in time. I don't think I could have handled another principal change.
  • I'm excited about Thanksgiving - but probably for all the wrong reasons!!! For one, I actually get to sleep late on Thursday!!! And we will be leaving for the lake after dinner. Being away from civilization always makes me happy!!!
  • With this little windfall coming our way, Christmas is going to be a happier time around our house!! I've even started dreaming about it a little bit. (For the first time in years I actually have a little Christmas wish list!!)
Ok, so that about sums it up. Life if chugging along, and I'm still breathing. Of course if you would have told me 2 months ago that I would be where I am now, I would have laughed in your face. But, qué será, será.

I will leave you with a quick question. Any of you ladies have "potty issues?" And if so, what have you found to remedy them?? Milk of Magnesia is apparently not the answer to my issues!!


  1. Pinterest is the devil! I heart it too.

  2. I eat a TON of protein and I go pretty much every day.

    Glad to see you back. :)

  3. I eat FAT FREE PRINGLES. The Olestra/Olean that they use usally loosens me right up :)


  4. You seem so happy. Glad things are working out. Happy Thanksgiving!

  5. Glad to see you are keeping busy :o)
