Is anyone there?......................................Its me...............Ashley...............hello?
Wow, isn't it crazy how life just takes hold of the reins sometimes? I have been missing you all. While I haven't been posting much (ok anything at all) I have been able to keep up with your blogs .... well a little bit anyway. I can get through a few a day but then when I get around to being able to check again its been a few days and I have to start all over.
I didn't think that I could be this busy at work and then here I am. I am starting to get my groove on at work and things are falling into place. Going back into the classroom was not as scary as I thought it was going to be. I am thankful that I get to ease in to things with only being in the classroom for one period this semester. I can't really say that I have been overwhelmed (but my facial skin might disagree with that statement) but I am able to really concentrate on my classes and I feel good about things so far. I am enjoying my kids and I feel comfortable lecturing to the class. But I am sure that you don't really care to be bored with what I do for a job so lets get to some more interesting things.
The PUYALLUP FAIR was happening the past 3 weekends, Thomas and I attended on the second Saturday. We had a great time trying the "Earthquake Burger", though I would pay the extra dollar for cheese next time, checking out Hobby Hall, listening to a live band, checking out the goats and watching a huntseat class in the horse arena. We also checked out the Frontier/Homestead exhibit that they have every year...I love that one and left with a dozen scones to enjoy the following week. And of course like the awesome blogger I am - I took no pictures. In my defense I talked my husband into putting my ID in his wallet so I wouldn't have to lug around my purse!! but that also meant that I had no camera. I gotta work on that...but first or second or whatever way you want to put it...I have to get my blog on again. I miss it.
I hope you all haven't been too lost without me for the past couple weeks...but here I am again hopefully I can stick around!!
Challenge for this post: how many times did I use the word "but"????
