Busy Bee!

Whew! It has been a crazy-busy-fun filled few days (err maybe weeks?!)!

Subbing has been going well, I have been working a lot but waitressing less. It seems to be balancing nicely. I work often enough and still have a life. I did pick up an extra shift this weekend because Christmas shopping (and root canals) are crazy expensive.

The philly half marathon went well! I didnt think I finished in a time I was hoping for but still managed a 2:07-which I was very happy with! I was exhausted from running too fast in the beginning but still pulled through and got a couple of cute pics!
The boyfriend did awesome at the marathon. He even got crazy cramps and finished in a very respectable time. He is totally awesome, as a side note-I still have no desire to run a marathon!

Thanksgiving was nice. I spent most of it at my dad's. It is usually pretty awkward because it is mostly Robin's family there, who are nice people but I just dont know them very well. My cousin Kimmy was there this year and that was great. It was super nice to spend time with her and I hope to see her more frequently now! I managed to stop by my aunt's at the end of the night and people were still there. It was good to be able to see most of the family on that side.I have no clue what I am doing for Christmas, hopefullly getting to see Joe more. I missed him a lot on Thanksgiving. He is very important to me and I feel so lucky to have him as a part of my life.

We went out the night before thanksgiving with the usual crew, obviously that is a shot from after we had a few. ;)

Everywhere was super packed-as usual-and we saw lots of people and it was awkward-again pretty usual Haha We even made it to Denney's that night, which is so random. I need to stop eating after drinking all night, my stomach always feels scary the next day!

This was definitley not in any particular order...oops!

Til next time--"When I count my blessings, I count you twice." <3

Too Easy Going...

I had another successful day of subbing today. I think I need to be more strict. The day went well overall but I still think I was too easy on the kids. They seem to like me at the school and asked me to come back for a few more jobs. :) It is nice to feel wanted. haha
This is a pretty picture I took on my way home yesterday, I have a feeling it might be one of the last times its that gorgeous and warm out

It was a super long day and I am ready to go to bed after I do some reading.
Good night :)

I heart november

Well it is official. I am terrible at consistently blogging. Most of the time it is because I feel like I dont have much to say. i am hoping to start remembering to take pics of my food, not because I find it interesting but because I would like to lose a few pounds. I always find myself eating more this time of year, something about the cold and hibernating maybe haha
Words to live by, ;)

i am feeling particuraly good this month. Even though a $3000 dentist bill was not a great thing, it has given me that "kick in the butt" that i needed with subbing. I have been taking pretty much any job that comes towards me and it has been going so well! I even have enjoyed big kids-which is totally shocking to me. 
I was talking to someone in the special ed field recently and she said she had to let go of the idea of teaching el ed, so maybe its time for that for me too. I would like to take a math praxis and social studies, so I have those certifications for once I have special ed. It seems like that would be the best plan for me right now. It is weird to me to feel good about something career related, it only took a few years ;)
The philadelphia half marathon is this weekend and I am super excited.the boyfriend is running the full so I will be mostly on my own that day. I am excited to see how I do on my own. I think I am going to do great-I cant wait! im mostly nervous about the early morning chillly weather- i need some goofy throwaway clothes! :) 

The bf and I had a bit of a fight this weekend. It was the first time I was ever that upset and we had a great talk after. I felt like I finally got a lot of my feelings out that I really needed to. He is such an awesome guy but that doesnt mean he knows how I feel all the time. I was glad to get it all out! :)

I have work most of this week-should be super busy but I am excited about it!
also it was super beautiful out today-who needs winter?! it should stay around 60 until spring rolls back around. who's with me?!

So my sub job today was supposed to be a half a day position, and it was just cancelled. I am glad that I already got up-i need to get in a good 60 minute run. I am just a little bummed. I told myself I would not do less than 2 days of subbing anymore.(Really I should be doing 3 or more!) It just doesnt ever seem to work out! At least there is next week-hopefully if I write it in here I will really hold myself to it! I cant work tomorrow bc of a dentist appointment that I reallly need to go to and Friday I work lunch at the restaurant and I dont want to give up that shift. Hopefully I dont end up regretting that! Eeek! 
Sorry for all the venting!
