Hey guys-- I'm sure you've all noticed I've been away for awhile. Among various other things... blame the crazy 5-month-old puppy currently tearing through the house with a stuffed ewok. Seriously, though--things have been changing here and I've been trying to keep up. I'd originally decided it was time to move on a few months ago but stayed on until we had Briannakin figured out and settled in. Mav and Bri have it all under control now and have my absolute confidence. You guys are in good hands. Now I feel comfortable passing the baton and moving on to the other things that need attention in my life, like... My last year of my elementary education license! (Yay) Subbing (fun) Tutoring (fun) Student teaching (oh, it is that time already?) Agility training (someday the puppy will get off the hamster wheel and pay attention, I just know it.) Various other fandoms (I admit it. I <3 Beautiful Creatures and the Hunger Games and all other sorts of mainstream young adult fiction I should technically despise as a former English major and yet love for no logical reason but that I do.) A puppy who: poops on the bed. Pees on the bed. Loves paper towel rolls. Thinks my underwear fresh out of the dryer is a great toy. Is literally the Queen B at puppy daycare. Is a source of endless hilarity and frustration, often within 10 minutes of each other. Oh, yeah, and there's that husband of mine that needs attention too after all of this. I've had a great time here, and I look forward to dropping in from time to time. But from now it is time for me to pack my bags and head off to other new adventures. Be good to Mav and Bri. Be good to each other. Have a great time, and thanks for all the fish.
