Life Just Never Slows Down

It has been over a year and a half since I last posted. I wish that I had a good excuse. My only excuse is that “Life Just Never Slows Down”. I honestly don’t know that I would want it any other way. While my grand parent’s photos are still sitting unscanned (He has been gone for over 6 years) and my grandmother’s cookbooks are still in the attic, not reviewed (She has been gone 20 years this December), I have had a full year and a half. I took a college course so I could get certified to substitute teach. Now I am what is called a “local sub”, which means I need to register with a school district and then I can sub 40 days a year.
I have really enjoyed subbing. My favorite school is the high school and if I had to choose, I would rather sub “the Specials”. That means music, P.E., Special Ed. I have only subbed two elementary classrooms, and while they are ok, I like having different students throughout the day. I have subbed numerous times in the elementary level but most of the time they are the specials.
The reason I am subbing now is that both of my children decided to attend public school full time last school year. So after 6 years of homeschooling, I found myself with an empty classroom. Both of my children are excelling in high school. I am so proud that they are such a shining example of what a positive influence homeschooling can be. They are respected by their teachers because they are kind, respectful and helpful.
Also in the last year and a half my son has completed his Eagle project, my daughter completed her Silver Award, my kitchen was gutted and remodeled. Oh, and add to that, I lost 30 pounds! I have so many topics to cover that will be many future posts.
I just wanted to say, I’m back and I hope that I will be able to be productive and write every day because, I have a plan for my life. And I need to be productive to see it come true.
I will work on covering the past year and a half in the next couple of weeks. Tomorrow I will talk about my 365 day journeyto weight loss.
