Blizzard of 2010

Okay, Mother Nature! I've had my fun with the snow, you can stop now!!! Seriously!
Alex went to school for one day this week (and even then, it was a two hour delay). We had about 10 inches, then it rained and washed a few inches away, only to be replaced with about 4 inches again today. Oh, bonus- it's supposed to snow again this Wednesday, then again on Saturday. I'm supposed to be training for the Monument 10K coming up in March, but the snow and ice makes that a little difficult:(

Whew! Glad that's off my chest!
On to some bigger and better things!
After taking a two-year break from working full-time, I am both sad and happy to report that I will be starting a new job next week! I will be working as a preschool teacher (4-year olds) at The Learning Experience! If you haven't checked this place out yet, you really need to (! It is AWESOME! Their phonics program is the BEST I have ever seen!
It's a full-time preschool and also a daycare for the younger ones. I DID go to college for this, so I might as well use what I've learned, right??
My hours are 6:30am - 2:30pm, so I'll get out on time to get Alex off of the bus! I am sooooo excited! Aron gets to come, too :) Of course, he won't be coming with me at 6:30am, but Eddie will be bringing him at 8:30 and he will get about 4 hours of learning/play time, then a 2-hour nap, then come home with me. It's the perfect situation for me.
I will also still be working part-time at the YMCA two nights a week, because I really do love it there. My co-workers are some of my very best friends :) Talk about having fun at work! Lol!

Also, what is your opinion on Sarah Palin leading the Tea Party movement? This is either going to be really good for the Republicans, or really bad. I guess time will tell, huh?

Whats new w/me?!

Holy Moly! I just realized it's been months since I blogged!
Lets see...I (along with MILLIONS of other people) started Weight Watchers (only I did it in December instead of January). So far, I'm down 7 pounds!
I am running in the Monument Avenue 10K this year and I'm training with the YMCA!
So far, so good! Although, I don't think running in 30 degree weather is my favorite!
Alex turned the big 1-2 in December! I can't believe this is her last year of being a child :(
Aron will be two in April! I can't believe it!
I was in our church's huge Christmas production, called "GCN" (Glorious Christmas Nights)! This thing was huge! I'm talking TRBC Living Christmas Tree huge! Over 800 people in the production!
Anyhow, I made some really good friends and I joined the choir this year! So far, I'm having a blast! Brings back the old high school days of being in Mrs. Breen's choir! Alto's rule! Lol!
I'm still into couponing hard-core and am getting a little better at updating my savings blog (
I still work at the YMCA, too.
Well, that's about all that is new with me! I look forward to updating more frequently in 2010!!! I need to turn this thing into a book!
