I’m alive… mostly

Hey y’all. For all of you readers sticking by me I just wanted to drop in and let you know that I’m okay. I have been battling my anxiety but I’m recovering. Hopefully one day I’ll take the time to sit down and hash it all out for y’all but for now I just wanted to let you know that I’m alive and surviving.

I’m in graduate school (again). I’m finally committed to my M.Ed. in Early Childhood Education. I’m currently enrolled in a short 6-week summer course on Social and Emotional Development that is truly kicking my butt. I seriously work on homework every single night. So, I have zero time to blog. In fact, I’m writing this post at work on my lunch break.

The graduate program is going to be great even if it is SUPER difficult. I think my biggest challenge is the fact that I don’t work in the early childhood setting. Most of my classmates are teachers so they bring real world experience to the course in a way I cannot. I’m working on that though so I’ll keep you posted.

This past weekend, for mother’s day, I took my mom to the HGTV Smart Home. We toured the home in-person (obviously) and it was such a great experience to see it all up close. The pictures make it seem so much bigger and I tell ya the house is big but it takes up every inch of that lot space. The interior is well thought out though. I just wish there was an office area on the first floor. I’m going to try and work in some time to post about the HGTV Smart Home 2013 tour soon.

Other than graduate school taking up every second of my free time, Craig and I are headed to NYC soon to visit with my sister. I seriously can’t wait! I scheduled this trip long before I decided to take this graduate class and unfortunately it’s not great timing but I’m going to make it work. I need this mini-vacay like you wouldn’t believe. June involves a conference for work but then the course is complete and I should have time again to fill you in on all the goings on.

I hope you are all well, and happy. Thank you, once again, for your support.
