M. Blogging Again!

Get out the virtual broom and dust pan.  It’s time to stop neglecting the blog like a closet that nobody looks in or a junk drawer.  It’s not that I didn’t want to blog for all this time and it really isn’t that I haven’t missed all of the people that follow us.  It’s just, to be 100% honest, that I was just being lazy.
In the past few months, I’ve found every reason not to blog and every reason to say, “I’ll do it tomorrow.”  Truth is though, as you’ve seen, that’s gotten me nowhere.  Thankfully, Amy has been blogging when she is able, but with her new school and countless hours of studying to become a nurse, she has no time.
Anyway, what I really mean to say to any of you that are still kind enough to read this, “I’m sorry.”
I know in the past I’ve taken a few days or weeks off, but this time was just too much.  I really have missed talking to everyone on here.  I’ve missed going on and reading all of your posts and how your lives are doing.  It isn’t that I wasn’t interested, it’s just that I have been a rotten blogger lately, and plan on getting better.
In the past few months, I have been letting work spear my creativity.  I have been so wrapped up in what I was doing to get the job done well, that I’ve let go of some of the things I love.  I haven’t been writing like I should, I haven’t been blogging, and I’ve kind of fell slightly out of the social media world.
Sure, I still tweet here and there, but that only gives me 140 characters to say what I want to say.  A lazy writer’s dream, only needing to say a few words!  Well that has to change.  I need to get back to blogging, because that is like writing exercise.  You know, like going out and jogging for several weeks before you run a 5K, which by the way I need to be doing too.  But really, blogging is practice.  I need to find a way to stay on task and get more blogs out, get my feelings out, get my words out, and most importantly mend the connections with many of you that I’ve lost.
I look forward to reading more of your blogs and talking to all of you about books, writing, and life.  Please forgive the absent minded, somewhat lazy blogger and join me as I get back into the swing of things.

A. First Week Done

Finished my first week of school. 6 hours of class 5 days a week, and at least 2 to 3 hours of homework at night. I am loving it!!!

Friday I came home, much to Mike's dismay with my blood pressure cuff. He hates to get his blood pressure taken but I have to practice, right?

The kids were not too happy about me going back to school. They really want me to be a nurse though and seem to think after a week I know everything.

It is going to be a long year but I can't wait!! Thank you to my amazing husband for his support, and picking up the slack around the house .
