Okay, okay so I know it has been months since I blogged about anything. I am horrible at this shit! But in my defense I started out at the new year and then the worst semester of my life hit me square in the face! Who thought working a forty hour work week and then taking two science labs Monday through Thursday nights at 6:00 p.m. would be so damn hard? Sure not this girl! But I survived and even managed to keep up my GPA. Granted the house was a disaster area, I had forgotten how to cook and my marriage was in shambles. Yes, I know my semester ended a month and a half ago and I am taking the summer off. Frankly, I was too depressed to write about anything that wouldn't end in my whining like a baby about how much I hated my life. Things were bad. Things were bad at home, in my marriage, financially and in my head. I was eating like crap and gained weight back. I wasn't exercising. All I did was lay around the house and be lazy. I must say I have read like 10 books though since the end of April. But I am pretty sure that is the only achievement I can claim for this summer.
So I got my act together. Started eating better and working out again and managed to drop twelve pounds for my friends Kat and Joel's Louisville, KY wedding. I started cooking dinner again and manage to clean the house at least once a week. The dishes and laundry get put away now and my husband and I are really working on our relationship. I feel better. And I feel like writing again!
My summer and fall seem to be filling up fast though as I get ready for my little brother's wedding!!! He proposed to Sarah while they were on vacation in North Carolina a few weeks ago and are planning a December wedding. Sarah asked me to be her matron-of-honor and I am so excited to be a part of their big day. Plus it is another excuse to buy a pretty dress and matching heals!!!
I think I am going to dig through some of my old writing notebooks and see if I have anything good in there to share with my readers . . . because I have so many I am sure! Or maybe I can rework some not so great pieces . . . we will see what happens!
