I love a RAINY day!!!!

Hello my laptop friends,

I haven't forgotten about you. I'm still here and all is well. No need to worry. My life's been busy, that's all.

First, I got a job!!! I am still subbing, but last year it was sooooo inconsistent. I decided to take a little part time job and I'm loving it. I am working with 2 of my good friends so we're having a blast. (Lots of talking and laughing to accompany our work, if you know what I mean!) I'll be back in the classroom too, but this will give me something to do that is a little more consistent.

The great thing is that the office is only 10 minutes away from my house. My hours will be very flexible....on working days I'm only in the office from 10:00AM-2:30PM or 3 so I'm home when my people get off the bus. So far, the first week's been great.

Second, I have to confess that I've been cheating on all of you with facebook. I'm totally addicted to it. I love going on to see if I've got any new friends and who they are and I'm really loving the flair!!!

Here's the pathetic part, I went on fb to check it out for Veruka. Just to see if we thought it was safe enough for her to set up one. Well, in doing that, I set up my own facebook. I started getting requests from people that I know in real life who want to be my friend on fb. At first I was emailing people and telling them that I really didn't have a facebook, partly because I knew I'd get hooked on it, but soon there were so many requests, I said what the heck and just went with it. (I was right too, I'm totally hooked on it!) It's pretty cool. I've reconnected with some friends from High School & college plus lots of other friends. If you don't have a facebook, you've gotta check it out!

So, now I sit here on this rainy day and I'm finally catching up with my blogging buddies. Today, I was supposed to wake up at 6AM and run 12 miles (yes, you read correctly, I said 12!) Our boys were each supposed to have football games which Bri was going to leave for at 6:45AM. It all was cancelled thanks to my good friend Hanna!!!! So instead, I slept in, drank my coffee in my pj's, read my People magazine (because a girl's gotta have her priorities), did a ton of laundry, cleaned my house and am catching up on my blog! What a great day!

Also, when our mail came, look what was in it....

I won this from Nancy at her blog. This is the first time I've EVER won anything!!!! How fun!

We're getting hammered by Hanna right now. Don't know that I've EVER seen so much rain! Congrats on the new job--how are you gonna work the running in? Will you have enough time to do all that AND go on facebook? BTW, if you have some time tomorrow, drop on by my place. We're playing the Silly Sunday Sweepstakes, and Sharing All That Caption Love!

Hey there!
We thankfully dodged Hannah, but I see you all are getting some of the rain. Hope you can stay dry.
Sounds like your having fun with facebook. LOL.
I've had some people from high school request to be friends. I'm slowly stepping into that arena but I just don't like some of the memories it drags up.. but I think that's just an attack from the enemy, so I'm trying to have fun with it.
Congrats on the job. Sometimes I think it would be fun to get back out there, but with our homeschool schedule, I just can't do it yet.
It's weird to think in 3 years I'll be done.. then I can go out to work... maybe.. LOL.

TOTALLY hooked on Facebook too. I even made my own flair this morning :)

Sounds like a perfectly great day to me...especially the drinking coffee in pj's part!

I haven't checked into facebook yet. Good thing though, I'm already completely hooked on this blogging stuff...I'd be wasting ALL of my time then.

Facebook is so fun! :)

I think that having your kids hold the sign telling you what grade they are entering is brilliant! I will have to remember that when I have kids one day. Just stumbled to your blog and wanted to say hello! :)

Congrats on the new job! I've been avoiding Facebook because I know that I will be insane for it. As it is, I spend WAY too much time blogging. I just don't have room in my life for another addiction.
