...for not posting anything for 10 months! Since my last post in September, so much has been going on in our little family. I began substitute teaching, tutoring, and teaching an after school cheerleading course. I also took over teaching health and technology at our local elementary school! I had big shoes to fill, but I enjoyed every minute of it! I'm praying that I can continue filling that post in September. Brian has a new job as well. In June, he transferred from the Montreal head office downtown to the branch here in the town we live in, where he now works face to face with clients and has his own office. Two big positives are his set schedule and the less than 10 minute commute! (Both make it much easier for me to plan dinner and have it ready when he gets home!)
In March, on a sad note, my good ole Malibu gave out on us. It was my first car, and I was sad to see it go.. However, on a happier note, we are now the proud owners of a 2012 Volkswagen Jetta TDI! I love love love our new car, but unfortunately, we were in the process of looking for a second car when the Malibu died. So therefore, we still only have one car. We are starting the process now of deciding what we like, want, and can afford so that we can hopefully purchase a second vehicle in the fall.
In the mean time, I have made some great friends at work and even went on a long weekend trip to Toronto with a couple friends. It was so much fun, and I had a lot of new experiences, including trying a lot of very authentic Asian food! :)
The week after my Toronto trip, we headed back to Georgia for a wedding and to visit family...but I'll get to that later!
