Long time gone...

Has it really been since July?!  No way!

That's a long time, my friends.

Wait.

Do I even still have any friends out here in blog land?

Oh, I hope so.

I've been completely immersed in a completely different world for the past few months.  Gone are the days of RTI and PBS and SST and Aimsweb and morning duty and discipline notices...  Now I toss around words like latency and frequency and duration and ABLLS and LRFCC and VB-MAPP and cumulative graph. {Anybody else out there into Applied Behavior Analysis?!}  And my non-teacher friends and family had JUST learned all of my teacher lingo.  Now they're back at square one trying to learn ABA lingo.  Bless their hearts for trying to keep up with me.

I'm back in school {surprise, surprise!} earning my board certification in behavior analysis {so I can go work with the FBI in the BAU...} and I'm also supervising two clinics.  So needless to say, I've been a smidge busy and my little blog has been very neglected.  Today I started missing my blog and jumped on here and saw that people still read it.  What?!  Shocking, I know.  So I thought I'd pop in and say HI!  I have missed all of you fabulous people.  I have to start blogging and pinning again!  I'm starting to type in default fonts only and well, that just can't continue to happen.  I am not a Times New Roman kind of girl, but I'm afraid I'm becoming one in the absence of my super fab teacher friends.  I need an intervention! 

I also realized that it is November.  And that starting up Holly Bloggy Christmas again slipped my mind.  Last year we started taking sign ups a lot earlier than this.  Think there's still time to make it work?!  Any ideas for a quick swap?  That was one of my favorite parts of last Christmas!  Thoughts?

Welcome back! I thought I posted this but maybe not...I loved Holly Bloggy Christmas last year, too! I was thinking for a quick turnaround maybe we could put together a package of things we love to send to another teacher (with a price limit)- Sort of like Oprah's Favorite Things but it would be Teacher's Favorite Things. Then you wouldn't have to look for specific things for your buddy and you might get some things that you love. I'm in again for whatever you decide, though!
