Well, hello again.
It seems that I allowed my hectic life to sit on and smother what little time I had devoted to this blog. Sorry about that. I know, you were probably panicked; wondering if I’d ever resurface. I’m sure you spend every waking hour rereading my past posts trying to find some sense of pattern that would predict when I would decide to return. More likely, the four people that actually read this are also friends with me on Facebook (as well as in real life) and already know exactly how the last 9 months have gone.
Let me sum it up for anyone that hasn’t been following along through other outlets:
- Started a Pintrest (isn’t is amazing?)
- Married Mr. Z in one of my favorite spots in all the land and spent our honeymoon in glorious Chicago
- Bought a house and moved into it the night we returned from the honeymoon
- Started a new job at the University I’ve been taking classes through the day after we moved into the house
- Became pregnant sometime between starting the new job and the week of Thanksgiving (which is when I did the actual pee-stick-test)
- Adopted two more doggies within all that mess which means I am now outnumbered by men at a 4:1 ratio
- Oh yeah, and I was still taking two classes in my Master’s program
Phew. I have had a wonderfully exciting, chaotic, stimulating, and overwhelming last few months or so. The fact is, I’m really ready for a big dose of boredom. Especially considering the upcoming addition to our mostly-furry family, I feel the need to soak up any and all moments of relaxation and calm.
Luckily, my new job is nothing if not calm. I’ve found myself in the midst of one of the more serene environments that I’ve ever experienced. Yes, we still get crazy days where there never seem to be enough people or hands, but the people I work with are just calm. It is a very nice change of pace that will hopefully allow me to get back on the wagon with this project. For all the changes that have occurred, I’m still seeking out my original desire: a focus on the things that embody my true sense of self.
