I am still here, promise..
Its been a combination of being busy with work, and I've also been in my own head space a fair bit and haven't been in the mood for blogging, commenting on other people's blogs, facebook or much else. I guess being busy with my own life has meant I haven't needed to know every detail of everyone elses! In fact I went on a bit of a cull of blogs that no longer resonated with me, and also of Facebook friends - I had some 'friends' that I'd added because they were on other groups I'd joined, but I personally had no idea who they were. At least I can look at my friends list now and know that I've had some dealing with each person on there, either in real life or via blogs / forums.
So what's been happening? I've been back to the gym this week after missing last week - both my BodyBalance and Punch Fitness class. It was good to be back, but boy it made me regret I'd missed a week! I extended my gym membership by 12 months when they had a b'day special on last week.
I've almost decided to get another microwave - ours died a bit over 2 years ago and I haven't bothered to replace it. Now that our life is getting busier, I'm seriously contemplating one again. Currently I'm out at the gym 2 nights / week, Pete has squash 2 nights / week, and Billy has cubs 1 night. Sometimes they overlap, but on crazy weeks it means someone is out every week-night. It will get worse in a couple of months as well as Billy moves up to the next martial arts lesson which is an hour later than his current lesson. A microwave would make it easier and more cost effective to reheat dinner or zap something from the freezer. I'm thinking it would mean leftovers would be used up more too - sometimes its just too hard to contemplate heating them up on the stove or oven :) And I have to admit I'm also hoping that a young boy might enjoy cooking things in it - he likes cooking but can be a bit hesitant with pans & ovens. I've pretty much decided which one to get, I hope to go and check it out tomorrow.
I've had a fair bit of paid work on (I just wish the "paid" part of that was actually happening a bit quicker lol), and taught last week at one of the community colleges. I only had 4 students so it was a fairly easy day compared to others.
Other than that, I've just been reading, catching up with friends, thinking and just living life. I figured it was time I posted something other than just another 'school' update :)
