just another character trying this blog thing!

Just trying this blog world out since everybody I know is doing it. Well, what is going on in my side of the world? I quit my teaching job over a year ago to stay home. This is my second starting school year to not be there for the first days of school. I love the first days of school. Everything is new! New pencils, markers, papers, faces, attitudes, and just the plain excitement of it all. It was hard for me to leave in one aspect and another it was easy. I was looking forward to getting our home back in order. We (hubby and I) got into the routine of working crazy long hours. Sometimes we both would not get home until 6-7 p.m. Who wants to cook dinner that late?? Not us! I was looking forward to cooking again, having a house clean before the weekend, mowing my lawn, going to ladies class, and reconnecting with our church home. Yep, I said mowing the lawn. I love it! Hubby loves it too. I am not good at edging or trimming! I enjoy this life of getting to go to cycle class or spin class together and eat breakfast saturday mornings without feeling rushed. Don’t worry folks I do work part time from home. That job landed in my lap! I am grateful! However, I can not believe how busy I am staying home. I think in a way I am more busy now. Yet I do not feel stress!  Maybe it has to do with being in people’s life’s again! My main passion is taking care of my home =)! I no longer call it a job because it is my passion. Well, hope y’all tune in to my craziness and that is exactly what it is!  


  1. Glad you are blogging! Isn't it funny how God gives us times to rest, or just a change of scenery at times is refreshing. I am happy for you and what you are getting to experience now at home. It'll be fun to hear your stories on how well you are enjoying it!

    Love ya, Therea

  2. You're gonna love it. Welcome. I'm new myself so my words of wisdom and expertise won't get you far. Just be yourself and let God's love shine, even in the hard stuff you will share with us. I'm excited for you and for us. But I must say, it's not fair. Your blog already looks better than mine.

  3. Hi Shellie, I will be anxious to read your blog. I know I will laugh, cry, be entertained and held captive.

    You are a delight to me.


  4. Yippee, I have another blog to read. And as a bonus, I love the picture at the top . . . must be the trees. =) I loved this part, "My main passion is taking care of my home =)! I no longer call it a job because it is my passion." I'm so glad someone else I know IRL feels this way. (This has been a new realization for me this past year.) For now, my paid job pulls me away for at least 9 hours, but I look forward to being in the same place you are some point in the future. I look forward to reading your blog.

    Miss you,
