I know I have been neglecting my blog lately, but I have had several good reasons!
First up was the move. We got the keys to our new house on 13th October in the end, but I had packed up my craft stuff at the beginning of October. It is now just about useable again, though I have lost my big Expedit to the basement where it is doing a great job of being a room divider...
Then my dad came to visit on the 16th of October for a week and a half, during which time he helped me move & clean out the old house, as Stew was working 12 hour + days, six days a week.
The last weekend in October we were just starting to relax & enjoy our new place when Hurricane Sandy started looming large. So last week I spent getting over that, then Leo got sick with a horrid chest infection (which I have now caught!).
Yesterday I took my Praxis I tests which was exhausting, but I THINK I will have passed them with a following wind & a bit of sunshine! So I have booked Praxis II: Chemistry Content Knowledge for 24th November. That leaves Praxis II: Principles of Learning and Teaching to be booked, I am leaving that until last as it's essays & quoting people's theories which I totally suck at! Once I have (hopefully) passed all those, I can mail off my application for Maryland Teacher Certification. Cool eh?
I have ordered the official ETS study guide for Science exams as the Kaplan one I had for Praxis I was useless as it turned out. But until that arrives, I *should* have time to do some stamping. I definitely need to, as my MIL bought 30 of my Christmas cards, and I have another person wanting to buy an unknown number, so at this rate I'm going to have none left!
I also have some sewing projects on the go, at the moment I am wishing for more hours in the day because I just have so many ideas swirling around the old noggin!
Anyway, apologies for being a bit AWOL lately. I can't wait to catch up on what all my fellow ACAD'ers have been up to.
