Things I Am Loving Right Now

*kids who do their chores
*the textbooks that came today at school
*the greeting my doggies give me when they have missed me
*having my elementary kids' paperwork completed
*a job I love
*my comfy bed
*my husband fixing things around the house- especially now that everything has decided to tear up at the same time
*my kids having a daddy who wants to spend time with them

The Long Hiatus Is Over!

Well, while I was at work today in webpage training, I thought of this blog and showed it to a coworker (the mobile version). While looking at it, I longed to write on it! So here I am.
So much has changed in the two years since I last blogged. My hubby was deployed and came back. Our children have gotten older. I started a new job at a new school. One of our dogs, Brutus, was killed and we got a new pup, Thor. So many changes...
So while the title of this blog is "Working on the Simple Life" and none of what I said sounds simple, I am still searching and working on it.
