I realized this morning that not only have I not been blogging much lately, but I have not blogged in a MONTH! I "think" that life will be settling down now and I am excited. Part of my New Year resolutions was to not forget about my little spot in blog land, and I just haven't done a very good job of that.
Since graduating from EOU in December, I have been focused on family and substituting. I was fortunate enough to do two long term sub jobs, one of which ended yesterday with the last day of school, and to be called in frequently when I wasn't long term subbing. Two weeks ago I signed a contract for my own classroom, so I will be teaching 3rd grade next year! It is satisfying to know that the risk of leaving a stable job in a completely different industry to finish my degree has now paid off. I am blessed beyond belief and thankful to be offered a job when so many others are struggling to find one.
With all that, I am getting back on track with my recipes and cooking. I will be sharing a fabulous breakfast casserole my friend Ellie sent to me tomorrow, but first I have to make a loaf of cinnamon bread :)
Thank you all for sticking with me!
