I couldn’t leave you hanging with a string of bad news, even though I don’t have time for a well thought out post.
I’m doing better. Time marches on. I got a little perspective on the school thing – it was such an emotional disappointment because I had been building up to grad for so long – and it’s been a stress-filled few weeks, and I had been counting down to the day I was DONE. So it was a very frustrating development to learn that I was missing those credits (especially after I had intentionally and repeatedly been meeting with the advisor to ensure that all the conditions were met) and I didn’t take it well. Not well at all. But after a few days to air out, I have realized that it is not really a big deal in the grand scheme. In fact, I’m probably going to come out on top, since this whole academic renewal thing looks like it is going to work out.
And as far as the other news, I feel peaceful and hopeful. The matter is entirely out of my hands, and that is a good thing. I trust. I just trust.
I appreciate all the prayers guys. I really do. Thank you.
I just dropped my kids off at school for the first day back from spring break. It was a great week. It was pretty low key. We all got a bit of a breather. I don’t feel as tired on the inside as I did before. It is nice to feel refreshed as I face these last few weeks of mayhem – I’m about to walk into a whole new set of essays and due dates. I have a good handle on my subjects. It is all just a matter of time.
My husband and I have been talking about vacations and throwing some some ideas. We have had the occasional night or weekend away over the years but haven’t ever really taken a vacation. So we’re looking forward to that, whatever it is.
I find myself also really looking forward to having weekends. For the last seven years I have worked weekends, and I’ve always had homework hanging over my head as well. Don’t get me wrong, I do fun things on the weekends with friends and family. I have a good time. It just means that the weekends are particularly insane since I have a lot of work to do as well. If I manage to land a monday to friday job I’ll have weekends like “normal” people. I’ll be able to be with my family. Usually the three of them hang out weekends while I’m running around doing this and that. I’ll get to be with them. That will be awesome. No deadlines. So. Awesome.
Just dreaming. Dreaming, dreaming. Happy. Dreaming. Time to get busy. Thanks for listening!
