It's A Whirlwind

This is how I'm feeling these days....
and a bit windblown.
I haven't posted since Aug.19.
I've been working since then.
I love it.
I love the commute- 2 1/2 blocks.
I love the staff.
I love bringing my girls to school.
I love getting to know the kids at school.
I love using my brain again.
I love assessments, and interpreting data.
I love finding ways to motivate kids.
I'll be in this position until 12/16...
and I'm good with that.
My standards at home have had to slide.
Meals are a little simpler these days.
Kids are chipping in to help a bit more.
Laundry piles last a little longer.
Paper stacks are a little higher.
But I love what I'm doing.
I miss zumba.
I miss seeing friends mid-day.
I miss stopping at a garage sale on a Friday morning....all by myself.
I miss getting meals done before the kids home.
I miss having a snack ready on the counter.
Thankfully the kids have all been healthy.
Thankfully Mark's worked from home 1-2 days a week.
Life is good.
I miss my blogging friends,
but have a new little toy which should make blogging a little easier.*
Maybe turning 40 last week wasn't all bad.
It's the new 30, right?
I like it way better than 30.
Life is good.

*Thank you dear Mark for my eensy weensy laptop...


  1. Aw, happy birthday friend! So glad to hear that things are going well at home and at work. We work so hard to make things so simple for our families, but it is good to step away and let them step up sometimes, no? Enjoy this time, this season, and I look forward to hearing from you when you get the chance!

  2. Happy Birthday to you! You make 40 look awesome! I have missed you. I was wondering where you have been off to! Glad you are doing something you love. That is half the battle. Can't wait to hear more about your new job! Sounds like you are even more busy than normal! Yeesh! Give me some of your energy!

  3. Yeah for you!!!
    I am getting my subbing paperwork in order this week too...(but I can only work on Monday's when Dave is home to be with Aubrey.) Excited, but nervous too.
    Sounds like it has been a wonderful transition for you. That is awesome!
    Happy Happy b-day to you!
    40 is great!
    have a happy day Julie

  4. Change is Great. Glad to hear you are loving it.

  5. Welcome to the New-Thirty club. It's not so bad from this side, I promise. I've missed you! Glad to hear school is treating you well.
