Well, I hate writing like this. It's like picking up a journal after too many months, or even years and trying to catch up fast. It's not a good way to write, blog, journal...whatever. This year has been good though. We decided after a year of renting we were all done with that business, and we bought our home. It's only a 1/2 mile from the last home, but it's still right by the lake. I like that. I'm a very visual person and I need to have something that satisfies my senses. The lake will do. Our home is also probably the best we've ever owned. It suits our huge family nicely, nice neighbors and the kids seem happy in school. All the way around a good move for us, in all respects.
Megan has been at boarding school for the last 6 months, which most of you know. I don't intend to hide that fact. I share it for a multitude of reasons. Megan doesn't hide it. She has told her friends, so I've told ours. Everyone has demons they fight their entire lives, and I'm proud of Megan for trying to kick hers while she's still young. Kudos to you Megan. Most people live their entire lives running away from problems and issues and she's facing them head on. Good for her. She should be home around next February sometime. I do post pictures they send me from time to time. Watch my Facebook for those.
As to the rest of us, we just are. Working, school, working and more school. That's where most of our lives reside, and it's ok. Things will change soon enough, time to enjoy the present.
With Brynlee being the only child at home I have found myself in a unique position. I have time....time....TIME! For the first time in 22 years I have time to do what I want, or need. It's weird, and great! I am still trying to figure out what to do with that time. I am working a bit online and that feels good. Making a bit of money, getting back into the professional world. It's so good for me. I'm also considering what to do long term. I'm still working towards my non profit. After the class I went to in June in Vegas I learned that I have a lot more learning to go. Hoping to make it to New York next spring to do just that. A week of intense learning. I want to make it happen. I like doing the research for it, and I love the concept of it. For those who don't know, its a foundation to support people living with type 1 diabetes. Something that's close to my heart as everyone knows, since three of my ten kids have type 1. It's something I finally have to the time to do, to concentrate on. It's a good thing.
Well, here's to many more blogs to come. I love writing about our humor, about our ups and downs. It's what connects us all....our lives. Share with me and I'll share with you!
