Just wanted to give an update on what has been happening in the last three weeks and why I have not posted anything.
I was all "gung ho" at the beginning of summer and had plans to craft and post almost everyday...then my son was in a car accident just a couple days before our cruise. He wasn't hurt thank goodness, but the damage to his car, his lack of transportation, and the fact the lady lied about what happened (just look at the damage to figure out who was at fault, the fact that her insurance is the worst, and she has numerous traffic violations in the past couple of years) has taken a toll. It has been three weeks, damage has been assessed at $14,000 (the car was not totaled), and the car still isn't fixed yet. Since I am home for summer I have been given him a ride to work so he doesn't have to worry. We talked about renting a car, but that is another story. He has the insurance coverage, but there are fees and age restrictions. Hopefully the car will be finished within the next week!
Then we went on our Caribbean cruise which was wonderful. Great way to escape from daily responsibilities and enjoy summer vacation.

Since returning, I have limited my time on the computer which has helped with decreasing my neck pain (yay) and I have been exercising daily. I walk every morning at the local park for an hour and I joined the Y to lose some weight/tone up before the new school year. I will have a new position (Content Area Specialist ~ Math/Science Coach) at a new school, so I am looking forward to all the new challenges/responsibilities. I am SUPER excited!
I am hoping everything will be settling down and I will get back into a routine. I need to look at my planner and get busy on design team commitments. It really is time to refocus and get recharged! I have one month before the new school year starts.
