I’ve realized that for the first time since 2003 I have free time. I’m no longer working all day and taking courses in the evenings. I now have the ability to focus on my friendships and hobbies and family.

I started a new bible study at church on Tuesday evenings. We are working through Beth Moore’s study Breaking Free. It couldn’t have come at a better time. I absolutely love Beth’s studies and this one, or so I’ve heard from several people, is pretty fantastic.

Also, I’m starting to run again. I had been running for a while and working my way up to completing a 5k with little difficulty. Because of my schedule during the first half of the summer I had stopped running regularly with my friend Kristin. I feel so blah right now and I know that it’s because I’m not exercising regularly. Hopefully within a few weeks I’ll be back to my normal self. 🙂

Tonight I’m meeting my friend, Heather, in Ponte Vedra. Should be fun. I’m ready to get out … especially somewhere new! I have to work Freshman Orientation this Friday but that evening my friend, Melissa, is coming over and we’re sharing a bottle of wine and watching a movie. Hopefully by the end of the weekend I will be refreshed and renewed and ready to tackle work that next week. I’m still praying for a teaching job although I know it’s not likely with our economy being the way it is …

So, that’s all for now. Still haven’t had a chance to work on uploading some pics for y’all but I’ll try again to find time this weekend 🙂
