Looooonnnggg Absence...

Hello Again,
Well it has been a LONG time since my last post but things got a little crazy around here. We had a great time in Shreveport! We had a total of 18 people go. We gambled, ate, ate, and ate some more. I actually got up the nerve to play some blackjack and I doubled my money! Kevin tried it too but I had to make up for his losses! lol Things got SOOOOOOOOO busy as soon as we got back. I've been up at Trinity Lutheran preparing for the year and squeezing in prepping for Lacy's showers in between. I've also taken my bridesmaids dress in to get altered because it was too big when it got here and I went to SAISD sub orientation. It has been something every single day! We've also had another garage sale...this time at Lacy's house. IT WENT WONDERFUL! We were busy all day! We sold so much stuff and ended up with over $500! We need it to finish buying the materials for our floor. This week was the first week of school. I didn't have students until Friday. I had 1 class of 4 year olds and then K - 8. I really liked it! I think I'm going to enjoy this year. Lacy and Dusty's couples shower in Sterling was on Monday. The location of the shower was amazing! They had lots of good stuff and we had a really good time. Dustin and Amanda got here last Sunday. It has been pretty fun getting to visit with them. Amanda helped me with some last minute errands for Lacy's bridal shower! The shower was today and it went really well I think. They got tons of cute things and nothing went wrong. I've been terrified something would go wrong and Lacy would get mad at me. Well that doesn't even come close to what all has happened since my last post. But it will have to do because I'M TIRED! I'm going to bed early because tomorrow is Trinity's teacher rededication morning. Maybe things will slow down for a while and I will be back regularly again! Oh yeah, I've had a few up and down weeks with my weight loss. I haven't been very good since I got so busy. I am currently at 26.2 pounds lost! I have bounced around for a while but am getting back into my routine. I need some encouragement to get back on the right track! TTYL!
Love,
Katy

Really Quick Update! BIG NEWS!

Well it is 1 am and I have to be up at 5:00 am to get ready to leave for Shreveport at 6! UGH! This will have to be short and sweet since I'm ready for bed! What I do for my friends! lol No I'm actually looking forward to getting away.

BIG NEWS! Weighed in at WW today so we wouldn't miss this week while we were gone. Their scales showed that I lost 2.2 pounds since Thursday! 4 days! I think I actually lost more last time but they read it wrong and now it is just fixing itself but it is still great! I am now at 25.4 pounds total! I finally made my 25 pound mark after jumping around for a few weeks! I'm very excited! Kevin weighed in also and of course lost a ton like 3 + pounds. He is now at like 36 pounds total!

BIGGER NEWS! (Short Version...long version after I get back.) When we got home this evening I had a message from Mr. Fritsche with Trinity Lutheran School...I GOT THE JOB! I got the part time computer teacher job! I can't believe it. I had completely written it off since I didn't hear from him. I'm thrilled. It will be nice to do what I love part time and have time to take care of myself and my husband. I'm also looking forward to working with the little ones and subbing at Lakeview and Central to see if I like it. I can't keep my eyes open so I'm off to bed now...MORE INFO LATER! Wish us luck in Shreveport! Be back Thursday night!
Love,
Katy
