Ramblings of a Young Mama

WOW. Can you say slacker?!

Has it seriously been 18 months since my last blog? That is insane! Where did the time even go?

Where do I even begin? Keegan has been in and graduated from VPK already. He's now in Kindergarten and made straight A's the first nine weeks. The second nine weeks, just ended and I'm expecting the same this time too! I'm one proud mama over here! He is doing great! He is beginning to swim like a fish! He did swimming lessons for the rest of the summer of 2012 and from April to September in 2013. He's already lost three teeth and one tooth is very loose now! Let's just say he's getting way too big, way too fast....

A bunch has happened where my job is concerned. The school that I was working at closed in June, and we merged with a sister school, since we are corporately owned there are many schools owned by the same family. I took on the same position at this school - Assistant Director, VPK Teacher and Curriculum Specialist. It has been a very difficult half of a year, trying to get settled in. I even considered leaving. I interviewed for a Director position, that I turned down because I just didn't get a good vibe. (I forgot to add that I got my Director's Credential in May of last year, YAY!) Anywho, in addition to merging I've also started doing assessments as a consultant with our Early Learning Coalition. It's been a great experience. It has definitely broadened my knowledge, and my horizons.

I lost a little bit more weight, and then gained a few pounds back by being lazy. I'm working on taking them back off! All in all, I would say that I'm definitely maintaining my weight loss! I have a very exciting event to attend in May, and I DEFINITELY have to have the pounds off by then! I will come back to this at a later date.

After dabbling with one guy and then having a little fling, again, with Justin - I'm not even sure what I was thinking then, maybe I was just lonely, I dunno - I have finally found the one for me. He is amazing in all aspects of the word. Mike calms me in a way that no one else has ever. We compliment each other well and are in sync with everything. I'm not saying we like all the same stuff, but we both have a love that is accepting and that is what is important. I'm so glad that our lives have happened in the ways that they have, so that we were lead to each other. I'm truly happy with all aspects of our relationship, and I think this is a first for me.

I suppose that's all for now. Expect me to be back soon with another post! I have more to talk, or should I say type, about but I don't want this post to be like a book! LOL
