Life is wonderful!

I haven't been the best blogger lately. I should give some excellent excuse but the truth is I've just been lazy and avoiding the follow up to my last post in which I declared that I was going to run a 5K. The great thing is that I truly believed it at the time and I had every intention of following through. But then I simply changed my mind. Probably because it got too hard or hurt too much to do the running that I needed to do. I realize that's not an attractive quality to posses but it's mine and Im owning it. So there...I'm a quitter.

But being a quitter isn't always a bad thing. Quitting smoking or drinking for example, that's a great thing! Maybe I need to quit quitting... Nah, that's way too complicated for me.

So not much happened in the end of 2009. I was substitute teaching and of course found out that I was admitted to the University of New Mexico for their Masters program in Elementary Education with Licenser. But other than that, nothing news worthy.

The program started Jan. 4th and I just completed the first week. The course load is heavy and the work is monumental but unlike the 5K there will be no quitting. I worked so hard to get accepted and I am certain that this is exactly where Heavenly Father wants me to be.

So I will start posting regular updates as interesting things happen. In the meantime I'll remain a committed running quitter and will continue to feel no guilt about it at all.
