It has been FOREVER since I have posted anything. I am actually quite ashamed to not have kept up with my personal posts. Have I just lost interest and no longer want to write? No, it is just life that has ruled my little universe.
Number one: Football season. This was my son's 4th year and he has become a little beast. He has a stocky build and is not afraid to use it. Fearless. His adrenaline pumps as he smashes through the line and tackles someone down. With practices being held three days a week and games on Sunday, I had no time for anything else.
Number two: College. I upped the ante and hit the books. Three classes to the start of a new working career. The end is near for the semester, and I am so happy to have made the decision to return to school.
Number three: Elementary School. I have always been room mom for one of my kids classes, but this year, I got the privilege to be host to TWO classrooms. Not as many parents are able to donate their time or money due to finances, and I was not going to leave those kids hanging. I just helped out yesterday with the book fair, and let me tell you, it is so much fun helping the kids pick out books!
Number four: Family and Friends. I had the pleasure of meeting my nephew, Rylie, for the first time. The little bundle of 6-year-old energy was a blast to hang around with in Pennsylvania. I cannot remember the last time I had played with Transformers or Legos. Fun times. Many friends were also having babies, so visiting them held my baby urges at bay :)
And finally, number five: Reading and Writing. I have been trying to catch up on my reading. I have a HUGE stack of TBR books, and it has only gotten bigger as I find new books to read. The writing has taken form as a book review and an article for the school paper. Might as well throw myself in there, right?
Okay, enough excuses. I promise to write on a more consistent basis. At least post once a week, if only to keep my sanity. I have so many drafts saved of events I was going to post, I just need to step it up and finish the darn things. Until next time...
