All in a month….

20161026_212836This past month has been CAAAA-RAAAAZY!  Jessi has come home from Richmond, for what was going to be just a visit, but ended up being a stay for some regrouping and replanning for her next adventure.  I am so proud of her for getting out there and giving it a shot, but I am also proud of her for being able to accept defeat in a healthy way!  Richmond, Virginia is not what we thought it was.  The crime is real.  The public transportation is not. One of the straws that broke the camel’s back (And there were already a whole lotta straws on that guy!) in my mind was when her coworker was carjacked at gunpoint.  ONE TICKET TO BANGOR COMING RIGHT UP!  Having her home has been an adjustment for sure, but since it’s 6:58 AM and I am up blogging to the music of the dishwasher, I think I am getting back on track after a couple weeks of sleeping late, eating crap, and feeling overwhelmed.

Part of the reason I haven’t blogged is because I have been so upset about the whole Trump thing,  and knew that any blog post would turn into yet another rant about racism, sexism, ismism…..  Which is pointless, and honestly, making me feel angry and helpless all the time.  And now he’s been voted President by our archaic electoral college system. I am trying to just avoid thinking about it, so…..  moving on…..

School,  School, School!!  Sean is doing much better, but still needs a LOT of “encouragement!”  Piper just finished puppy school!  Lonnie and Jessi are applying to nursing school, and I just finished up 2 more grad school classes!  I am thinking about where I want to do my field experience in February and am leaning toward…. hell…. I am not really leaning toward anything yet I guess. I am dreading the whole thing, and still not sure how I intend to make it all happen….

But for NOW!!  I have 2 weeks off from school and it’s my FAVORITE time of year for projects and stuff, so I am LOVING LiFE!!  We have tried some new recipes. We made bath bombs.  We have Alton Brown’s Aged Eggnog aging in the fridge.  Lonnie is going to make a batch of beer this weekend. We made Lonnie a new website for his D&D stuff coughcoughnerdcoughcough.  It’s almost time to decorate for Christmas.  Black Friday!!! The new Gilmore Girls is coming out ON Black Friday!!  SO. MANY. FUNS!

I think it’s time to head over to Pinterest!

  1. Colleen I so love this. Maybe it’s because I can relate in so many ways, and maybe it’s that your writing sounds EXACTLY LIKE YOU. Come teach a lesson in creative voice to my classes! Lots of love to all of you.
