It's been a long time...

Well, it has been a long time since I have posted anything, so I thought I should take some time today to update my blog. I must admit blogging is harder than I thought it was going to be. I love reading other people's blogs, but find it hard to write about my own life.

I have finally found a new job, and started on December 1st. I love it! I am Assistant to the Dean at a nearby University. It is a great place to work and the people are really nice. I hope it will be the last place I ever work (honey, if you are reading this - I mean I hope to retire from here in another 15- 20 years!) One of the really nice perks of the job, is that my entire family receives free tuition...that perk alone is worth staying on regardless of working conditions - which are good anyway! Needless to say, it has been a big adjustment for my family, but it is well worth it.

We celebrated another joyous holiday season with extended family and friends (this is to be read in a slightly sarcastic tone!) I love the holidays, and I love seeing my entire family - I just wish that it could be more spread out over the month of December and not cram five get togethers into one week's timeframe. It's just too much! My parents gave our family a Wii for Christmas, which has been a lot of fun! I think that is a really cool gaming system - I'm not usually a video game lover, but I do love the Wii. It's something the entire family can do together and be active at the same time. I love it!

I hope you all had a great holiday season and that New Year will be a year of good health and prosperity for you and your families.
