Blogger {Unofficial} Rule #1

In order to be considered a blogger, you must blog.

Yes, this may sound like a DUH! remark. However, I write this to remind myself.

You see, the last time I blogged, was nearly 19 months ago. Do you know what can happen to a "blogger" in between 19 months of non-blogging? Well, a lot.

In the last 19 months {since February 2013}:
- I have taken a break from teaching. This is my second {yes, second} school year to not be in the classroom. It's weird. At first, I was way weirded out. Like, I didn't have an identity anymore "weirded out". In August 2013 when I didn't step into a classroom for the first time IN.MY.LIFE (well, since 4 years oldish), I was all kinds of emotions. However, the break from the classroom has been much needed and much appreciated. However, this August, my heart longed to wear a lanyard, take attendance and eat bad lunchroom food in 20 13ish minutes, all while going to the restroom, checking my cell phone and grading 3 tests.
- I've focused a lot of time on TpT. Because of my extra time, I've been able to devote more time to my TpT resources. It's a super fun blast making stuff for ya'll!
- I work for a Christian radio station. I currently work as the Development Director of a radio station. I enjoy it a lot. It's very different than teaching {i.e. - you can use the restroom when you wish, there are other adults to interact with during that day that aren't crazy parents or administrators, your cell phone can ring and you can answer it, you can drink more than one cup of coffee a day because of fact #1 about the whole bathroom thing, lunch lasts longer than above mentioned 13 minutes, etc. etc.}.
- I will go back to the classroom. One day. Just for this season, I am enjoying being "Lindsay" instead of "Mrs. F".
- We are adopting a baby. My husband and I have been in the process of an international adoption for 3 1/2 years. We are still on that wait list and we will continue to stay on that wait list until that sweet baby comes home. However, we are also adopting a baby boy domestically in 11 - count it - 1, 2, 3....11! - days! Crazy excited.

So a lot happens in 19 months. Who knew?!

Anyways, I decided it was time to join the blogging world again. AND give away one of my newest items on TpT!
