Oy, I suck.

Well, that's a long time to go without blogging, isn't it?

I will confess, I quit blogging for two major reasons. The first one? Facebook. I swear, my entire life story is on facebook these days. Every picture I take, my "status" a few times each day. It's a sad addiction.

My Facebook page

And the second thing is, I can't figure out how to upload pictures from the digital camera. Dan put Picasa on my laptop, and now I have no idea how to use it. I don't know why it's so hard, but it completely stumps me. However, I can text pictures I take on my cell phone right to Facebook!

So I'll do a quick recap of the last what, 7 months?

- In October I hurt my knee doing another half-marathon, the Nike+ Women's Half Marathon. About mile 11 it went out on me, and I haven't been able to run further than 4.5 miles since. I'm thinking of starting up again to see how it does.

- In the late fall, DJ started Taekwondo too. He is now a camouflage belt, and Adam is a purple belt.

- We got a new kitty in early 2009! Her name is Zellandine, and she picked me out at Central Dakota Humane Society. Isn't she gorgeous?

- In May, I was the victim of job cuts, so I no longer work for CCC. I loved working part-time from home, and it really upset me to lose my job. For the time being, I'm working for The Idea Center; it's fun & interesting, and brings in a little money. I've applied to be a teacher's aide for the '09-'10 school year though, and I'm working on getting my ND teaching license. I'm hoping to maybe sub for '10-'11 to get my feet wet with teaching again - gotta ease back into it after being an at-home mom for so long! - and then hopefully get a placement the following year.

I think that's it for now. I really will try to blog regularly again, and maybe Dan can teach me how to get pictures from Picasa to Blogger.
