The past few weeks have been a whirlwind/roller coaster. Thankfully, Mike has been right there beside me (or in front of me pulling me along when I’m not in the mood to take the next step). I couldn’t have made it the last month or so without him. Or without those of you who have shared words of encouragement or commiserated with me. A huge thank you to each of you.
The semester ended and I am just one class (3 credit hours) shy of my degree. I’m still working on not letting that define me, but it is getting better. Slowly.
I’ve taken a 3-month break from social media. I realized that it was becoming a huge time suck and escape for me…neither of which is healthy for my family or my personal health. I haven’t really missed it, but I do miss being in touch with some of my friends without a lot of effort. (Yes, I realize how lazy that sounds, but I do like reading about my friends’ successes and struggles, and being able to share in their joy and give encouragement when they need it.)
I’m hoping I can find my blogging voice again during this time. I love blogging and have always found it like a form of free therapy. But once we moved to Erie, I wasn’t able to find the time to blog. I’m pretty sure I could still benefit from the free therapy. And, I have to find something to do with this Macbook now that I’m not taking classes full-time. 🙂
