The First Post

This is the new site - well the very start of things here at least. I wanted to get started because it’s now or never (and if I don’t now, most likely I never will). Since school ended in June, I’ve been saying it’s time for a new blog. And now, with what, 10 days left before the next school year, I’m finally getting into action. Finally. FINALLY.

This blog is going to be different from the 3 previous sites I had: I have a theme and I’m sticking with it. I have a lot to say. I need an outlet to reflect. I want to organize my thousands of photos. And most of all, I feel old – not physically or emotionally, more like technologically… if that makes sense…

The Husband always tells me I’m like a young girl living in the wrong time period. I’d probably be more effective as a human being living in the Middle Ages or something – a time when there’s no cellphones, or texting. Don’t get me wrong, I quite like shiny stainless steel appliances and all, and I do drive a car, but I tried my hardest this summer to find some interest in Facebook and Twitter and failed. Pinterest is kinda cool I must admit, but only because I can get ideas for craft projects for teaching, but how to find the time to log on?!

And so, I’m back to blogging because I enjoy writing – well typing. My writing can only be done with a black COPiC pen…  and I’m also back in an effort to catch up with the times. Our school board has a real push on technology this year, so if I know what’s best for me, I better start learning. Sometimes the students – they know more than me technology-wise, and that’s not good. I can only get someone to fix the speakers connected to the LCD projector so many times before I feel ridiculous. I actually miss the smooth feeling of those red and blue markers writing on overhead transparency pages… it’s at this point in my blog post that I know Sister#2 is rolling her eyes or has either stopped reading.

Anyways the point is, I’m back. It’s been too long. My old blogs will cease to exist very shortly (my previous name already expired in case you hadn’t noticed). I’m looking forward to learning and approaching this blog with a new attitude. More changes to the design to come into effect soon – a major thank you to Brother-in-law#2 for helping me get started. Enjoy!
