Yep, still here, just really horrible at blogging, [a goal I continue to tell myself I’ll get better at].
I’ve felt this pull towards my computer multiple times, but usually, something always catches my immediate attention & writing gets put to the way side.
Since September, we’ve been keepin’ on, keepin’ on around the Doherty house. Fall was busy, as it always is, and now Christmas is around the corner, already smothering us with holiday cookies, holiday movies, and SNOW [some just fell this week!]. Before we know it, it’ll be Valentine’s Day & spring break.
To have a quick, little catch up –
My 8th grade position has been a challenge this year. I love teaching and right now I’m trying to figure out how to stay in love. I have a unique group of kids; they’ve kept me on my toes and definitely made me rethink the way I’ve been doing things in my classroom for years. I’m hoping the roller coaster I’ve been on so far is a lesson in itself, and will make me a better educator and person by the end of this school year.
Over the past couple months, Tony and I have also been adjusting to his new job. He travels a lot throughout the work week, but is really loving what he’s doing & his new company. I’ve tried to use my time at home during the week to get grading done, [also to minimize for the weekend when he is home], getting back into being active, [running and yoga], and to continue getting really good at cuddling my puppy, [who is currently curled up under our duvet, keeping my feet warm].
Overall, since it’s just me at home most days, we’ve also saved a lot of money on groceries, so that’s a plus, ha!
I didn’t have a whole lot to say tonight besides that I WILL be back, SOON.
I’ve been reflecting a lot lately about my blog; the space I want it to be for me, for my readers, etc… I’ve came to terms with the fact that it’s okay the why has changed, especially since I started blogging almost four years ago.
Because, let’s be honest, I’ve changed.
So, that’s it for tonight my snowflakes.
