Blast From the Past

What does it take to kick  a missing in action blogger in the ass and get her to post again? Apparently an email from a long lost love.

Everyday I think to myself....."self, you have hundreds (ok really 27) followers that would LOVE to know how awesome things are going with this new job. (pretty darn awesome) They'd love to know how the kiddies are doing (growing like weeds)...they'd LOVE to know that you are still alive. (mostly I think)" I tell that self that I am too busy. 

Today, I checked my email and got a message from the guy that I always considered the love of my life. The man I KNEW (naively apparently) that I would have my children with, that I would grow old with, that every random thought about every idiotic topic I'd share with. Obviously that didn't work out as I had planned since we broke up 3 months before our wedding.

"Ummm Holly....how did that inspire you to talk to us again," you ask. You are asking right?


Shew ok good. Well he said he found me through this blog, when he googled me. So I thought if people are going through the effort of googling me, and then reading my grammatically illiterate ramblings then I should do them the honor of giving them something to read. Even if that something is short and sucky.

So to catch everyone up. For the first 2 weeks of being in my new job I didn't even have an office phone or a computer that had speed faster than a three legged hamster running on a wheel. As of last week I had internet at my desk....AND my phone rings now. Sometime more than I want. It still startles me when it does. I am getting a better grasp on my job duties. I had a conference call on Friday with the other "me's" across the state. It was fun to hear all the different accents. It was also fun to hear everyone's questions and ideas on how we can do our job. Are you wondering what that job may be? in plain English. I help people open child care centers. I help teachers and directors do a better job in child care centers and preschools. I help those that aren't doing a great job get better before they get shut down. Thats in a nutshell. I have 10 counties I cover. Its an awesome job I love it so much.

Abbey started band camp this week. She loves it. I knew she would. Its in her blood. She is the only 7th grader and she is doing amazing. That bit of information is coming from the kid of a friend of mine that I asked to look out for her. I can't wait to annoy you all with pics of her at ballgames and competitions.

Emmy has the big test that she has worked all summer for next Monday. I am so freakin anxious about that. She is absolutely capable of reading any word put in front of her (well within her grade level) but as soon as you put those exact words together in a story she has a massive anxiety attack and starts freaking out about how she can't do it until I just have to say "DO IT NOW!" in my best mommy voice. not sure how this will translate come test time.

Thats pretty much us right now. I promise I will try to start posting regularly again.
