Nothing Much (Or Maybe a Lot)

Life, man. Am I right?

Not a lot to talk about. I feel so insanely busy, but when I sit down to piece it together into a post I just feel like there is nothing to say.

Missy is doing really well.  There is a lot of hope that her new treatment is working.  We won't know for another six weeks.  But as of today she seems good.  We went shopping at the outlet mall in Cincinnati this weekend.  The three sisters drove up and laughed and talked and had a wonderful time.  We tried on clothes and laughed some more, at some points until we cried.  My mom came around lunch and ate with us, did a  little shopping and her and Missy headed home.  Boo and I stayed for Christmas shopping.

It was a great day.

I am still loving  my masters program. It's hard, but so rewarding.

I feel that this program is helping me become the person I want to be, professionally.  I feel so passionate about what I am doing.  I feel like it is helping me find my place, and that is a great feeling.

But at the same time, it is exhausting.  Working full time, ten hour days, having Nick and Henry and everything going on with Missy, and also taking six credit hours of Masters classes.  It's a lot.  And it's so awesome, but it's also just a lot.


 We are so ready for the holidays in our house.  Since Nick and I both work at the University we both get a week off at the holidays.  It is one of THE reasons we love working here.  This holiday week off.  It is the happiest time of the year.

But between now and then, Nick and I both have classes and finals.  Me as a student, him as a teacher.  It's a stressful few weeks leading up to the most wonderful time of the year.

 Henry is still awesome.

Just in case you were wondering.

  1. Long ago and far away in another life, I remember working, going to school, raising 3 kids, and being busier than I've ever been in my life. It's exhausting and I feel for you. However, in the long run it will all be worth it. Good education, good job, good life. Hang in there. So glad to hear Missy is doing well.
