Tuesday Tidbits

*Tomorrow I return to work, and Diva returns to preschool. Vacation is officially over. Hello, 5 am. Not that waking at 5 am is anything new (thanks to my early bird), but there's a big difference between being home and half awake, and making an hour long commute with a loquacious 5 year old.

* We had meatloaf muffins for dinner. I have to pimp the meatloaf muffin for a second. Once I discovered the joys of meatloaf in a muffin tin, I haven't gone back to the loaf. I love the way they cook faster (way convenient now that we get home later), I love the portion control, and if there is a way for a lump of meat to actually be kind of cute, this is it. (Sorry vegetarians, don't hate me!)

*I tried Zumba last night for the first time! I LOVED it. I can see how an addiction can easily form. The music was awesome, the instructors were fabulous, and it was so. much. fun. I think I finally found the work out that was made for me. I am committing to going at least once a week, and twice a week when D is home in time. Love me some Zumba!

Happy Tuesday, Y'all! (Now that it's almost over). It is kind of nice to think I'll be starting my work week half way through!

Is this thing on?

I completely disappeared from blog land, and I am trying to make a comeback. Or in the words of LL Cool J, "Don't call it a comeback, I've been here for years." And I have. Been here for years. However, I kind of lost my knack for blogging as I dove into my new job, my new commute, and my continuing job of being the mom to one precocious, charming, and quite exhausting 5 year old. Yes, 5. I can not believe that Diva is 5. It seems surreal. We recently registered her for kindergarten, another surreal act. As I downloaded the forms, I cried. I. Am. Not. Ready.

I am loving my job. Although I've been a teacher for 10 years, there are parts to this particular job that are new to me, and I think that's a good thing. I'm learning, and I love what I do. I always thought I needed to have my own classroom to truly be happy teaching, but it just isn't so. I have found that I like that my days are varied, and that I am always on the go.

I've missed blogging, so I am going to try to give it a go, yet again. I also have a TON to catch up on with all of the blogs I read. I'm hoping to find some moments here and there to get it all in!
