Life.....as we know it

I know, I know....you are all waiting for something profound to show up here. Well, you may be waiting for a while. Quite honestly, I just don't have it in me right now to blog. Life is just life for us....exciting to some, C-R-A-Z-Y to us. :) Here's how it's all going down for us....in a nutshell {or a numbered list in true "I lack creativity at the moment" style}.

1) I am a full time student again after ?? years. :) I have put my MBA on hold to pursue a graduate certificate in Secondary Business Education at Kansas State University here in Manhattan. I am happier than I have been in years! I absolutely love the program and everyone I work with. I will be in my very own classroom {hopefully! *fingers crossed*} in Fall 2014. I am also pursuing the MS in Curriculum & Instruction along with endorsements in Special Education: Gifted and ESL. I also plan to complete my MBA in the middle of it all. Please pray! LOL For my noneducator friends who always ask me "what the?...." I will be teaching business classes at the secondary 7th-12th grade level. My hopes are to bring a business program to the local middle schools. I'm already in talks with them so please keep your fingers crossed for me that it all works out and is a smooth transition.

2) Neeley is in the 7th grade at Eisenhower Middle School here in Manhattan and so far thinks it's a breeze. She's in Algebra as an 11 year old. Yikes! She loves all of her teachers and is having a great time! Soooo thankful this transition to Manhattan has been a breeze. She is also involved in Hip Hop dance, takes weekly horseback riding lessons, is pursuing tennis lessons starting next week, participates in the junior high youth group at our new church, and is joining the Photography Club and DanceFit Club at her school. Busy? Nah! :) I could go on and on and on and on...... well, you get the picture.

3) Ronnie is in training to soon head to a country that makes us not so happy. But we pray for safety, security, and peace of mind for the next several months. And hope that they are able to bring us closer to clarity in that far away place. He loves his job here {right, hon? correct me if not! :)} but duty calls whether we like it or not. We are so very thankful that his years, or rather OUR years, with the Army have really been good ones....even if we have to cuss it at times when it turns our world upside down. We miss and love you hon!!! ♥♥♥♥♥

4) I can't leave out Anna Banana! She will be 13 in December and rules the house. Need I say more? Taking care of her is like taking care of a baby. Bleckh!! Why do dogs become so needy as they age? :) But we love her anyway.

We are making life work here in Kansas. We are working on our house, refinishing furniture and coming upon some good finds here in the area. We are getting out and about and doing all of the fun touristy things there is to do here. We even take in a few KSU Wildcat games when we can. We are loving the area and all that it has to offer. Wish I had time to always share more with you here but unfortunately my time is very limited. Bedtime for me is midnight and my wake up call comes at 5 am pretty much seven days a week for me now.

I really am doing my best to keep this updated but if anyone wants to volunteer....have at it!! :)

We miss and love you all!!

If any of you have a question you would like for me to answer, have ideas for a post, would like to guest post, etc., please comment with that information. I'm always looking for writers and bloggy fodder. :)

Until next time................................................
