"Think you can't change the world? Too late, you already have. It was changed for the better the minute you were born. There are more people than you can imagine who will never be the same because they came in contact with you, if only for a fleeting moment." ~Gail Purcell

Where did the summer go??

Sorry to be incommunicado, but I didn't have anything fun to share.

I spent the summer taking 3 grad courses for special education and then worked the last part of the summer for my job with the Y.

The weather here in New England was perfect! Low humidity and sunny days, a relief from the heat from last year.

Irene didn't even impact us too badly, lots of rain and wind but no damage here.

Didn't feel inspired to even touch my sewing machine all summer! And sadly I am still WAY behind on all the blogs.

School is open here, although the kids only had to go last Friday (crazy). Back in full force tomorrow. I start my adventure in the High School this year!

Will try to post more as I get back into a schedule!

Love to all! I have missed everyone bunches.

Makes Me Happy Monday 5/2

Couple of things that I am happy about this week. 

I found out that my teaching job is secure for next year...... it is not my first choice of job, but for now it is much needed security. I am moving up to the High School; I have always worked in Middle School before so it will be a big change for me.

And, because of this great news, I decided it was time to........ Buy a New Car!!  I will be saying goodbye to my wonderful Toyota Previa and hello to a Hyundai Santa Fe, in Blue! First new car in over 15 years, and my first non-Toyota car in over 25. But this car was recommended in Consumer Reports and Toyotas have been having issues.....

I am actually donating my Previa to a local charity that fixes up cars to give to single moms to help them get jobs and get back on their feet. Didn't want it to just go for parts and it still has a good amount of life in it. I know the new family will love it.

So all this good news has helped my funk a bit.... although still no time to sew with all my other work to do.

Happy, Happy Monday, Happy Week

Makes Me Happy Monday 4/4/11

I have been in a major funk and can't seem to shake it. Needed to focus on all that is good in my life today. Family, friends, faith, health, furr-kids, job...... definitely a life full of blessings....
