Absence makes the heart grown fonder...or something like that.

I haven't been running much, so I haven't been blogging. I apologize, however it's not like anyone was hanging on my every word waiting for the next blog post. I'll give a brief summation of my life over the last 8 months or so.

Running- Ehh...other than my GOTR coaching, haven't done much. I finally bought some new shoes a few weeks ago and am starting to get out and run at least once a week. I'd like to be able to do a 10 mile race in March, but we'll see.

Nursing- I'm still working part time as a school nurse, lately at one of the high schools. High schoolers are strange creatures. I got a full time job working in a nursing home back in June. It seems like the place is circling the drain, lots of drama and I'm looking for a new job. I love the residents I take care of, but if management isn't behind the staff at all? It's not really worth staying in a job where I'm worried I'll be thrown under the bus.

Dating- yes, DATING! So one of my goals every year since I got divorced was to go on a few dates. I've been on more than a few this year. I dated a guy for about two months early in the summer, that didn't work out well. I've now been dating someone for about five months and it just works. Honestly, from his dating profile online, I didn't think it would last that long. There's been miscommunications at times...but we always talk through it. I didn't think I'd ever be happy in a relationship again, but I am.

Kids- they're amazing. Daughter was chosen as the Golden Eagle award winner for her class for the first quarter of school (it's an award for those who are leaders, respectful, etc...). Son #1 has been involved with chorus and the archery club. Son #2 hasn't been involved in too much, he played soccer and isn't sure it's for him. He loves science and has decided he wants to be a scientist.
