Almost a year to the day!

Hi, Guys!
I always tend to neglect my little blog here. =(
I was actually shocked to sign and in and realize that it was almost one year ago exactly that I posted my last post... let me tell you that it has been a busy year with many, many, many changes!

I'll start with brief family updates:
After having the baby, I went on a life hiatus. It's a pretty surreal thing to even type, but in a way I think I had a mild form of Post-Partum Depression; I wasn't unhappy with my husband or my children- I was unhappy with myself. I'll spare you the details, but just know that mentally I'm in a better place and I'm ready to take on the world! =)
My baby boy will be 14 months on the 11th. He is an amazing baby that definitely keeps me on my toes! 24 pounds of healthy meat and bones! Lol. My oldest boy, just started 3rd grade this school year. I can't believe how big he's getting and how much he's grown! It makes me sad to think how quickly time flies and how truly precious spending time with them is. Being a mom is freaking amazing!

Professional Updates:
I left my the school where I've spent most of my teaching career. I think working there was a contributing factor to my depression- I felt unappreciated, overworked, and unwanted. Who wants to feel that way in the profession of their dreams?! NOT ME! I made changes... I went on one interview and killed it! I was offered the position the next day and am back teaching a grade that I love. The only thing I miss about my last school, aside from my coworkers, is how close it was to my home! But you know what? I'll drive an extra 30 minutes for my happiness and peace of mind any day! =)
Also, I'm back at school! I'm FINALLY working on my Bilingual Endorsement. I haven't taken a college class in almost 10 years, but so far I've kept up and have managed to get good grades along the way. =)

Things are going great!

Onto my original reason for updating my blog....
