I have gotten so behind on blogging...or even reading other people's blogs. I used to check every day for new posts, lately I check once a week if I'm lucky. As for posting on my own, I think my last post was in February? I was never good at posting, but sheesh...and as usual, this is going to be a quick catch up on my life, time to celebrate all of my family's accomplishments kind of blog. I would like to think that I can write, and at night when I'm struggling to fall asleep, I do write blogs...I just don't have a computer there in front of me.
At any rate, here's the rundown, and then maybe tomorrow I'll post something serious. Chad's gotten promoted to general manager at White River Fish Market (trust me, if you're ever in Tulsa, and you like seafood, you HAVE to try this place, it's amazing!). Along with that came a significant raise...AND significantly more responsibility. Which means more hours (although it really only probably increased by about 4 hours a week, so I guess I shouldn't complain). He fake graduated from college, which means that he walked across the stage to get a diploma cover for a diploma that he won't actually receive until July 28. Doesn't matter, I am SO SO proud.
I started running, and guess what? I actually like it! Especially the part where I'm losing weight. Funny thing, I still can't fit into my pre-baby clothes...apparently you can't make hips narrower, no matter how much you run. *Sigh* Also, I officially have my teaching certificate. Just in time for Tulsa Public Schools to close 12 schools permanently. I have found some job leads, and I'm applying wherever I can (even if there are no openings) in the hopes that someone will be desperate enough to hire a teacher with no experience! (Teacher friends, if you have any advice, I'll take it...)
Hailey and I made our first trip of the summer to the splash park last weekend, it was awesome. (And COLD!) She had a great time, and got to wear her new bathing suit for the first time. She's great, growing like a weed (apparently she did NOT get my short genes), and smart as a whip. We're in TROUBLE with this kid.
So that's the Brinson family update. Maybe tomorrow (oh who am I kidding, three months from now, probably) I'll post something serious and important. Or not.
