I'm so sorry it's been so long since I posted!

First, I want to thank all the great people who've kept me in their thoughts and prayers lately. You all have no idea what it means to know that there are people out there who care.

This has to be quick because I can hear students starting to wander into the school...

I don't really want to go into all the issues that have plauged me over the last few months, but I have gotten through it all and things are definitely looking up. In fact things are more than looking up.

For starters: This new school I'm working at is awesome. I actually can concentrate on teaching these kids rather than trying to actually get them into class and looking busy. At my last job I felt like a babysitter. Here I feel like an educator! Yeah! I'm very excited and have some seriously high hopes concerning this position.

Secondly: Though there has been some major rough spots with health in my family; my cousin Judy has started a foundation in my Aunt Joan's name and will be on Oprah in the near future. This is such a blessing because things have been really hard for the family concerning my Aunt's death.

My Mother and Father also traveled to Baton Rouge a few weeks ago to get my grandparent's remains. They have brought them back to Michigan to be buried. My Grandmother died last May and they were waiting to bring them back together. My Aunt has supposedly sent some really memorable things for me from my grandmother, so that has taken the edge off her death a bit.

I will be moving from the Ranch I live on sometime in the near future. The going ons there have not helped my stress levels and I've decided I need to move. I have a few options and am looking forward to the change.

If some of you haven't figured it out, things were not so great between myself and Shane there for a bit. We kept in touch and did some things together but the situation wasn't very good. I'm glad to say that by both being adult and talking through stuff, we've actually gotten a lot closer. I don't want to talk much about this because I'm in a mode where I feel if I get excited about something it falls down around my head, but I will say things are going well and I'm happy.

Hope everyone has a great Labor day weekend! Shane, myself and a good friend of his are heading to Steamboat for a PBR he's announcing and then Windsor for Bullmania. I'm sure I'll be exhausted come Tuesday morning, but I know it's going to be fun!

I will be posting again more regularly!

I'm so glad to read that things are going better! I'm slightly jealous that you get to 'go back to school.' I used to LOVE the excitement of the first few weeks.
