I’ve been kinda bad about updating… I do apologize about that. I haven’t had anything that exciting to say, or when I do, I forget to post them! So… here you go…You know, the usual info dump:
–Health: is the same. Ups and downs and the monthly doctor visits, experimenting to try and successfully make me a healthier, happier, and headache pain free person someday. *cross fingers*
–Jobs: Jared and I are both extremely grateful for our jobs… especially with the economy’s recent pitfalls. Jared’s company has taken some hits, unfortunately, but at least he still has his job. I also do love my job, but applied to the high schools in the area and am hoping to hear back from some of them in the next month or so (district politics).
–Teaching 7th grade: is going. Actually, there are some good things going on at work. We’ve been reading The Outsiders as a class, and that has been a huge success with the kids. I read it to them and then pause and talk about it with them. They have really enjoyed the book- it’s been a really motivating factor for the whole classtime. 🙂 That definitely makes me happy. Downside has been preparing for the HUGE Texas state writing exam this Tuesday… Tuesday will not be a fun day. Oh well.
Cooking: is adventurous. I’ve taken a liking to Rachael Ray. 🙂 I know, I know, some of you may not like her, but I’m a huge fan now, and most of her recipes are easy and affordable–I’m just a lot slower than she is when it comes to the finished product. 🙂 Jared likes the variety too, so that’s always good. However, I’ll be honest- I don’t cook every night. Working with these 7th graders from 8:00-4:30 can be exhausting, and sometimes I just come home and we have leftovers or cereal!
Housing: We are hoping to get a house sometime this summer…We’ve been saving up and are keeping our eyes peeled for the homes in the right areas for the right price. We will just see!
Anyways, that’s all for now, folks!
