New Developments!

Well, the start of a new school year is here and I have to admit I am excited. I love my job as a full time sub at the oh so special Rosedale Center, the staff and kids bring me to tears they make me so happy sometimes.

This will be a very busy year for me and I am looking forward to growing and learning so much! I happened to google myself this afternoon and was blown away. I was written up in this gorgeous online magazine The Artery There are some really great artists written up, and the article about me is very encouraging and beautifully written.

We also finished and rented out the huge house we bought 2 years ago this summer! We are moved in and loving it. Here are a couple of pictures to show our apt and some of the work we did. I hope everyone is having an exciting and encouraging Fall. I am definitely welcoming the cooler weather.

I also wanted to share that I am planning on enrolling in school to get my RN- become a nurse. After much thought and heartache I hope this is the best choice. While I will miss the high schoolers, who woulda thought, I hope to eventually serve on the clinical side. I am thinking about places like Kennedy Krieger, or possibly institutions like Sheppard Pratt.

M.I.A. excuses

I bought a house almost 2 years ago. the roof and everything in between needed to be taken out and redone. this has eaten up my evenings and weekends for the most part, happy hours and the like still observed when possible. This last weekend we worked on getting the railing all finished up. We reused a bunch of old ornate cast steel parts and built a new railing out of them. A huge amount of work, but worth every second, it looks great. Heres a shot of me doing the final touches, welding the two rails together at the corner.
