Hey there! How have you guys been? I miss you, I’ve been thinking of you, but I’ve been overwhelmed with balancing everything. The relatively new marriage, living together, blended family, new job, and so on. BUT I did think about all of you often. And I’m back. And I’m going to try to post at least weekly from now on…so will you guys come back? I miss your daily presence. I loved when my BlackBerry vibrated and it was you guys replying to a post or commenting or emailing. My virtual friends rock. And I miss you…wait I said that already right?
Ok, so if you let me back in this special club, here’s what I’ve got for ya. I’m almost done, three more weeks to go…of my first semester. My school does semestering. Meaning my science students have me every day for eighty minutes…160 on the days they have lab. Physics has turned out to be the class that is “easier” to teach, even though I don’t know it as well. I’m guessing that it’s because I have been learning more right along with them. Chemisty is my stronger subject, but I have younger kids in that one and some of them really don’t want to be there. After teaching college, I have to say discipline and motivating is not something I really was used to having to do. That’s the part I DON’T like.
I’m excited to say that next semester from February to June I only have Chemistry and the corresponding labs. Which is sweet and should allow me a bit more time. Especially since I have all the PowerPoints pretty much done. This semester I made them as I went for each topic. Ugh.
On another note, I’m thinking of finishing out this year and heading back to the two hour daily commute (as opposed to this new two minute one) and my old job. I miss it and the people too much. As far as how this job has affected my time with Miss B and our lives together, that’s the next post I swear. It’s been mixed really. Not as much of a blessing as I’d thought, but a blessing nonetheless. She’s in on the decision to go back to my old job. By the way, the girl is FABULOUS. Kids raised by single mamas are just so thoughful, generous, grateful and most of all KIND. And beautiful. Inside and out. I’m in love with my 9 year old daughter…even when she’s grouchy. Oh yeah, and we’ve had the SEX talk! I can’t wait to update you on THAT one. The girl is just too smart. Pictures will follow too, I promise. And by the way, she looks 14. You won’t believe it.
By the way, who has a BlackBerry? Email me your PIN ladies please…I’d like to have the instant ability to BB message with you. It’s faster and so accessible.
I’m going to go browse YOUR blogs now. And catch up on your lives…gosh what if you guys are all married and blogless now…that will stink…I gotta go find you. Right away.
