Good to be Back!

I went to the Michigan Blogger Meet Up yesterday and I had such a great time.  I was really neat to meet in person the very people that I have stalked read online.  I had a total geek moment as we went around the table and introduced ourselves.  I introduce myself the woman sitting next to me introduces herself, and then then woman on the other side of her introduces herself.  Fascinating so far I know, just wait.  She's all like "Hi I'm Christina Bainbridge."  I lean forward and blurt out, "I love you!"  Way to keep my cool.  I pride myself on not being starstruck.  I always complain about those weirdos that are fanatics.  Then I go all "Can I have your autograph?"  Not really, but I did feel a bit dorky after I said it.  I was just so cool to get to sit down with people you respect and share ideas about a mutual hobby and passion .

I have been rejuvenated to begin blogging again.  Once school began I become overwhelmed with teaching a new grade, having a new principal, and navigating my way through a new evaluation system.  Blogging went by the wayside.  I also chair our PBIS committee, sponsor and lead our student council, am on our district technology team and sit on the district elementary curriculum committee.  Shoot me now!  Unfortunately, I have added school webmaster to that for this year.  I need to knock it off.  Blogging is going to be my therapy this year.  It's better for me than large amount of chocolate and alcohol.

Happy Blogging!!!
