I am a really bad blogger...not that many people read this thing...but in case anyone is still out there, here is a little update :D
In September I started my job at Lodi High school. It was a rough few months looking for a new job, but I found one and I really love it there! The staff is all so nice and the administration is very supportive and helpful and I really feel at home there. The commute is a bit tiresome, but it isn't the worst in the world I am sure. I really hope that they are able to keep me on for next year. I finally feel like I am in a place where I belong. The students are great for the most part and I finally feel like I am "getting it". They say it takes up to 5 years to master the art of teaching and this is only year 3 for me, so it can only get better!
Our new house is treating us okay...we have had a few "joys of home ownership" moments these past few months (our heater is currently not working...) but it is our home and we love it! Our menagerie is doing well; this month we celebrate 1 year since we brought home our pup, Jenny. Awww. We love her!
Matt and I have both kept up with our running in SacFit and he recently completed his first marathon! I am so proud of him! He did so great and is planning on number 2 next year! I PR'd in October at Urban Cow; another 7 minute PR! On to the next! :D SacFit starts up again soon and I cannot wait because December has been my laziest month yet! I dread getting on the scale! My focus on weight loss has waned and I have been very bad with my exercise and been eating some bad stuff. I hate to be one of "those people" but January 1st is the day for me to get back on the horse so to speak and get these last 10 lbs gone! I know I can do it I just need to try harder! I am thinking of training for a November marathon so I need to be at my "racing weight" before then! LOL
That is basically my life in a nutshell for the past few months. I am pretty boring! I am going to try to be a little more on top of this thing! I promise! Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
