My WordPress.com Anniversary!

Happy Anniversary with WordPress.com!
You registered on WordPress.com 6 years ago.
Thanks for flying with us. Keep up the good blogging.
Amazingly I have been using WordPress.com for 6 years! I’m not really sure where the time has gone, but suddenly I’m here. I know when I started using the platform in my classroom I had great plans to communicate with my students — which I did sort of. Then I created a variety of other sites for other purposes, which were also used sort of. Finally I created this site. While I am not a power user like many other blogger, I still find time to post things about my journey towards a healthier me, as well as some photos and book reviews. Here’s hoping I can log a few more kilometers running and biking and crank out a few more post in the coming year.
Thanks for playing along!

New Day, New Month, New Year — New Look

I’ve thinking about making some changes to my site, and today I pulled the trigger so to speak.  Welcome to my new theme — Wilson.  As always, I’m open to feedback as to whether or not this is a good fit.  One of the things I really like about WordPress is that you can make changes like this so effortlessly, and if they don’t work then you can change them again.

Everybody’s Working for the Weekend!

This was a short week thanks to Thanksgiving on Monday, but we had a pretty busy four days at work and home. It’s early Saturday morning and my daughter and I are up and trying to get to the rink for her 7:30 a.m. practice. For such a lovely child, she can be pretty grumpy. So much for sleeping in, but we did get to do that Monday morning so I can’t be too greedy. But this early practice is the start if a very busy weekend — 3 kids and multiple sports activities, not to mention the regular family jobs that have to get done (yay Costco!). I vaguely remember a time when the weekends were a restful time, but it doesn’t seem that lately. Oh well, the kids are active and they enjoy there sports so it’s worth it. Also, since I can’t just sit in the bleachers, I have the fun of coaching so I get a little exercise too. Okay, time to head out.
