Back again?

So if I write a blog post after a fairly long hiatus (only 3 posts last year) - will anyone still be around to read it?  Who knows.  I used to love blogging.  It was rather cathartic when I needed it to be.  Life seems to have gotten in the way but it's really no excuse.  I can find time for other things - why can't I write.  I do miss it in some ways.  It's nice to be able to go back and look at posts to remember certain events and such.  I tried doing that with facebook but I didn't post much there either.  Well, let's give it another try, shall we?  What do you want to know?

I've decided I really have to do something about my weight.  Yeah, I know you've heard that one before.  I finally exceeded my all time high and I can't afford to keep buying clothes in bigger sizes and I have closets full of clothes I can no longer wear.  I still hate exercise so I'm focusing on diet right now.  I know I'll eventually have to add exercise but I'm hoping that can wait until our pool opens in March.  I'm tracking my food intake using the My Fitness app on my phone.  I've been pretty good about about.  I've gone over a few times, but I've been under a few times as well.  Last week the scale said I lost 4.4 pounds but it might have been a fluke.  We'll see on the next weigh-in.

I moved up to a high school campus at the beginning of the school year.  It has been great - I feel like I have time to actually BE a librarian most of the time.  At least I'm not constantly dealing with textbooks or fixing everyone's computer problems.  (Of course word has gotten out that I know how to fix things..)  I started a Scrabble club but it hasn't taken off yet.  I only have two active players right now but I'm hoping for a push soon.  I need to come up with some ideas to get more students interested.

I've done a lot of reading.  Last year I read 40 new books as part of my Good Reads goal.  This year the goal is 46.

I didn't play in very many Scrabble tournaments this year.  I played in New Orleans a year ago last January and did pretty well but tanked at a Houston tournament last March.  I need to decide if I want to invest in improving by studying or not.  I'm going to try to write a Scrabble curriculum as part of my Tall Texans project but I haven't made much progress on it.

Well, I guess this is as good of a start as any.  If I have any readers left, let me know if there's something you want to know.   I guess at least you know that I'm alive and well.

Glad to see your new posts. Missed hearing about you. Actually deleted the link to your blog. Got here today from your comment on Andrew's Mind Delvings blog. Sad about his mom.
