long time, no blog

Well hello there, bloggy peeps! Too much has happened around the flying household to possibly cover, but in a nutshell; started volunteering at the public school we enrolled Ben in last January (love-love-LOVED his teacher!), got the bug to re-enter the educational field (re-activated my expired teaching certificate, applied for a part-time teaching job), summer started, swimming lessons, vacation in July/August, retired on July 30th (WOOOOOOO-HOOOOOOO!) Ben's 8th birthday party here on August 15th. (we MADE that E*V*E pinata, and it totally ROCKS!!!!) School starts back up in just over a week, on September 2nd. It never fails to amaze me just how quickly the summer zips by, when initially I am overwhelmed by the idea of 3 months of Ben 24/7. We always manage to fill up the days though there are, of course, the lamentations of "nothing to do" for the first couple-a weeks. Then we get into a groove and before you know it, bye-bye summer. We are deep into demolishing our dilapidated garage. My plan is to have a bonus room over the new garage that I can move all my craft/sewing stuff into. TH thinks he will put a projector TV up there. He is so wrong. You are sooooo wrong Sweetie, if you are reading this. How 'bout I consent to a projector TV in the family room. 'K? And a shop next to the garage for your "tools" and such. I am very busy gardening, looking for a job, making journals and gift tags (more about that for a future post...) so I really doubt you'll see me around the blogosphere much. But I'm not going to delete this blog, so maybe I'll surprise us all by putting up another post or two before years end. Happy last few days of summer!
