EK reminded me that his “favorite blog” hasn’t been updated in awhile. Point taken. Life sort of happened between my last entry and today.
+ While I couldn’t post it until everything was official, I accepted a teaching position at Fond du Lac High School and submitted my resignation at Horace Mann High School. I graduated from FDLHS in ’04 and it’s very surreal to now call some of my former teachers “colleagues.”
+ Engagement pictures. EK and I haven’t had a lot of time to devout to wedding planning only because I did not have a set budget during the summer. The first thing I want to do is take engagement pictures and I’d like to take them in October. Our tentative date is October 2013 so it’d be nice to have them a year before the wedding. Maybe that IS the tradition for engagement pictures. I don’t really know or care.
+ I have the opportunity to go to a coworker’s daughter’s wedding today. I’m not super jazzed about knowing no one there but I think it will be good to look at it from the “okay you’re going to get married soon here are some ideas” standpoint.
+ I got to catch up with Angie this week. Love her. We were at dinner for almost 2 hours talking constantly.
+ Found owl wall stickers for my classroom yesterday.
+ Impromptu date day. I went in to rearrange my classroom and I ended up in Oshkosh with EK for awhile. We visited House of Heroes, Satori, St. Vinnies, and the Fox Valley Thrift Shoppe. Then we came back to Fond du Lac and visited the mall because I had a few redemption coupons I needed to use. Victoria’s Secret? Free undies? I’ll take it!
+ I am so thankful for the type of relationship I have with EK. I cannot say it enough. I don’t like to delve into details because I feel as though we speak for ourselves publicly but it just works, so well. And we’ve come a long way from what we used to be.

+ I have really been into benefit makeup lately.
-I found out that one of my students from North Fond du Lac was diagnosed with a rare form of thyroid cancer today. He is starting his senior year in high school. Unfortunately I am reminded all too well and all too often that a lot of inconsequential stuff that people bitch about doesn’t matter. Teaching keeps me grounded and I hate moments like these that remind me of that.
-I am a bad student. This means that I have a heck of a time sitting through long meetings like: new teacher orientation, technical college tours, general staff meetings, etc. However, once again, it keeps me grounded. I don’t expect my students to sit through class long lectures either.
-Cosmo + Sophie = SO MUCH DRAMAZ! For the record, EK and I own the two most neurotic cats on the planet. They are SO fickle and inconsistent.
-So much of my mental & physical wellbeing runs on me having quality sleep. Yeah that’s kind of a “duh” statement but I feel like this applies to me more than a normal person. I didn’t sleep well yesterday and spent a good portion of it feeling ill and crabby. EK can attest to this. I can be a rotten little asshole when I’m tired. I also hate the fact that my internal clock does not match up with EK’s. I could be in bed by 9PM most nights.
