It's been a long while since I've even thought about writing. Summer was a "working" summer. My kids started school in three different buildings (two different school systems). I've started a new job at a new level (moved from pre-K teacher to FINALLY teaching in my field of secondary education--Yeah!). My husband is starting a grad program. I'm finishing up a certificate program. Then there were all the other things like the friend crisis (death of a husband), a new roof (2nd in two years), all new siding, all new gutters, visits to family, 5,000 back-to-school things, family visits here, etc. Normal life "stuff" that most all seem to be balancing better than I. I think now I can finally take a breath.
