Wow, it's been a long time

Ok, so it has been a long time since I have posted anything. A few days after my last post, my husband decided to drop a bombshell on me, he wasn't happy and if things didn't change then he was leaving. I decided to look at my life long and hard, I knew I didn't wnt to loose him, he is a great guy. I decided that I needed to get some type of job so he doesn't think I just sit at home all day and knit. I updated my resume and sent it out to dozens of people, I went and filled outapplications everywhere I could think of, nobody called. That was very upsetting, I mean I have a college degree and I couldn't get a job. So, I started thinking about career paths and things like that and what I wanted to do with my life, besides being a wife and mother.
The best thing I could think of was I think would like to be a substitute teacher. So, I put in my application and the process of getting hired took a few months, I didn't get my first substitute job until the last week in October. I have been working at least 2 or 3 days a week since then. As I was doing this I decided that I think I want to be a teacher, so I started looking into what I need to do to get my teaching certification. Yikes, I have to go back to school! I have been out of school for a while, so this made my palms really sweaty and I got all panicky and I think I actually swooned! Anyway, I have been getting everything ready to go back to school, and my husband is happy because he can see a steady income for me inthe future, instead of odd jobs and painting peoples houses. So, that's why I haven't posted in almost a year.
I know what you are saying, yeah that' great and all, but what about the knitting! Well, I will have to post about that in the next post! (I know I'm Teasing you)
