Happy Labor Day Weekend!

I know, I know - I've been slacking in my posting lately!

But for fairly good reason, this past Thursday was the first day back-to-school for my high schoolers and as a result things have just been completely hectic!

Just to give you an idea - the room they were originally going to put me in was in a free standing building separate from the main school building, and it was disgusting! When I found out that they were going to put me there, I seriously considered quitting my job... it was that bad! Well on Wednesday (the day before school was scheduled to start) they decided to close that building for the year because it was deemed unsafe for students and staff to be out there, well DUH! I could have told you that! Needless to say, I have been without an actual office or classroom for the past week. Luckily I found out on Friday that my principal has plans to put me in a very nice classroom in the main school building, I even got to see it so that I could start planning for the year - it's very exciting! They are hoping to move my things sometime next week, so hopefully I will be setup in my classroom in the near future!

Aside from that, even the weekends have been hectic.

Last weekend we went camping with friends - my mom and her boyfriend have an RV on a permanent site about an hour south of where we live, they let us use the accommodations for the weekend and we had a blast! We hiked up the creek and waterfall the runs through the campground:

We played cards and board games, cooked hot dogs and s'mores over the fire - it was great!

This weekend is Labor Day Weekend and of course it was no exception to the hecticness. We went to my in-laws for dinner yesterday, and spent the evening with them. Today we're going to the Buffalo Wing Festival in Buffalo, NY

Tomorrow (actual Labor Day) is probably our only real day to relax, and Bryan needs to go to sleep around 4:30pm because he has to be to work at midnight on Monday night! Yeesh! 

So as you can see, it's been a little crazy around here lately!

Hopefully you've at least enjoyed this "ketchup" day, to see what we've been up to. I hope to get back into the swing of things and regular blog posting in the next couple weeks! Bare with me!

Hello! I'm a new follower, I just stumbled upon your blog and it's so cute! I love your 30 before 30.. I might just make one myself!

Thanks for following Jeska :o) I love the 30 before 30 concept - I really wanted to set some goals for myself, and noticed that a lot of bloggers use the 101 in 1001 plan... but this was just too overwhelming for me! I find the 30 before 30 plan to be much more manageable and realistic! Can't wait to see what you come up with!

Hi Mrs. Lady! And Welcome :o) I am hoping for a digital SLR for Christmas this year, so that I can officially begin my photography hobby! *Fingers Crossed* for continued (and slightly improved) pictures next year ;o)
