I've been a major blogging slacker lately, but we've had a lot going on--and I've been trying to stay off the computer except during naptimes and sometimes, late at night. Plus, I don't feel like I've had much of value to say lately, and don't want to put anyone to sleep. However, you could probably use a good nap, so read away!
I'm doing some freelance writing right now, which is extremely fun and fulfilling. I like writing on this level, and hopefully, will do it again sometime.
I've also been substituting a little since school started back. Everyday that I go reiterates in my heart the knowledge that home is where I'm supposed to be (as opposed to full time teaching), but it's nice to keep my feet wet.
Michael is going back to college this fall, which I'm sure is exciting and nervewracking all at the same time. I'm so proud of him, though!
Kade is 13 months old and almost walking. He has stood by himself a handful of times, but won't quite let go of whatever he is holding on to. When he does finally let go, I know he's going to take off (We could all probably learn a lesson from that).
We went to Dollywood yesterday and Kade rode the Ferris wheel, the cars, and the carousel (which promptly broke as soon as it started). We had so much fun together, and it was nice to spend a day away with daddy. I'm pretty sure Kade's favorite part was the trip to Olive Garden, though.
After almost 3 months, Michael drove his car to work today. It has been out of commission all summer, so he has been driving his motorcycle to work and back everyday. Good for our gas budget, but not so fun for Michael. I'm sure he was glad to be inside of the car on such a chilly morning.
My little sis is back in college, with a year and a half left till graduation! She is also the director of their college sports network. Go Bucs! She has a wonderful boyfriend and most of her life is hunky dorey! Except she no habla Espanol, which could be a problema. (Just kidding, hermana.)
I could tell you all the boring stuff, like my parents just got back from the beach (Booo to them!) and I cleaned both of my bathrooms, washed the dishes, and took a shower by 9 this morning, but I'll spare you!
Happy kind of Monday!
