We finally have internet again at home! Yay!
I know, I know it's ridiculous to be this excited about having internet again, but I really have missed reading everyone's blogs and keeping up with everyone...pretty much I missed being a "stalker" as my husband calls me. So here's everything that's been going on in the past few weeks:

  • I've been stepping up my exercising/running. I can't believe it but my first 5K is about 3 1/2 weeks away! I'm not ready yet, but I'm getting closer. I've been following a 'training schedule for beginners' for the past two and a half weeks and I really hope I'm able to complete the 5K without having to walk. 
  • Tim celebrated his 26th birthday! Happy birthday, old man! You're now closer to 30 than 20...but I still love you. :)
  • I've been trying to apply for teaching jobs like crazy. I say 'trying' because it's really hard to do without home internet so I've been lugging my laptop around town using free wireless when/where I could. I'm excited to finally be able to do that while I'm doing my treatments everyday again because it sure is time-consuming. If you know of any elementary teaching openings, please let me know because I'm applying everywhere
  • We've had some pretty fun days at school over the past week. Last Friday, the staff played a softball game against our high school baseball and softball players as an incentive for students who read a certain amount over the past couple months. The weather was perfect and the kids had a really great time. I played on the team and didn't do too bad myself -- caught two fly balls to end two innings and was 1 for 2 at bat. There was plenty of music and dancing as entertainment, too which was lots of fun. I love the school I work at and wish that I could teach there, but there just aren't any openings.
  • Today we had field day at our school where we literally play games all day outside. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect day as far as the weather goes. It was a long day for our 28 five and six year olds, but they did great. Only a few tears were shed and about 10 Band-Aids and many trips to the bathroom later, the kids said they had lots of fun. We also had a station where the kids participated in RIF (reading is fun) where they each got to choose a book to keep forever. How cool is that?! :-)
  • We only have about 10 days of school left until summer break and I don't know what I'm going to do with myself this summer! I will be an assistant during our summer school, but that's only for about 5 weeks and only half days. I'll also be tutoring two sisters, but only for two hours a week. I think I'll be spending a lot of time on the hammock with a book this summer. We have one wedding to go to in July, but other than that, we don't have much planned for the summer....just saving our money, I guess. 
  • I've been feeling great lately! Since I kicked that nasty cold I had, I have been feeling wonderful. I've been keeping active and trying to make sure I'm getting enough rest. My next CF clinic appointment is a month away and I really hope my PFT numbers are up!


  1. I'm so glad things are going so well and that you have internet again! Yay! I've missed your udpates!

  2. Thanks! I've missed reading everyone's blogs. I still read all of yours because I get your emails, yay! :-) Thinking of your sister and your family lately! :)
