So, its been a while since I’ve been on here, and to be honest, I’m not happy about it! I’ve missed blogging! I’ve had so many ideas to blog about, and yet, I just couldn’t find the time to put those thoughts into a post.
Summer came in and flew by like a whirlwind, and before I knew it, it was time to start school and get back into the rat race of life. and so, here we are.
I had an awesome and somewhat refreshing summer, which ended with a very relaxing vacation with my wonderful family. It was the perfect way to end the summer!
I feel like so much has happened since my last post that I hardly know where to start.
For starters, I have decided to take a Creative Writing class!! it starts tomorrow night, and I am so excited! for a while now, I’ve had the desire to sharpen my writing skills so that I can communicate better through my writing. I’ve also had the idea of writing a book floating around in my head for about 5 years now, and I felt that taking a writing class will better equip me for that. I’ll keep you posted on how the class goes.
In other news, I’ve started doing weight watchers again. basically, I gained sixteen pounds in a matter of two months, and finally came to a place this week where I decided that enough is enough. To be honest, I have only myself to blame for the weight gain. about 4 or 5 years ago, I developed a serious sensitivity to gluten; at one point it was so bad that I started having borderline anylphalactic reactions whenever I ate gluten. I stayed completely away from it for over two years, and felt great. However, this past December, I was accidentally given gluten at a restaurant and I didn’t react. so, being the highly intelligent person that I am, I decided a few months later to try eating gluten again to see what would happen, and NOTHING happened. I know that I should be glad that I no longer have such severe reactions to gluten, but quite frankly, it was easier when I knew I couldn’t eat it! because now, rather than having severe reactions to gluten, my body just hangs onto it because it apparently can’t process it. so basically, it makes me fat. plain and simple. enough said.
have I mentioned that we homeschool? this year marks our 12th year of homeschooling! I can’t believe we’ve been doing it for this long, but I can honestly say that I love it. Now don’t get me wrong. it’s definitely not all peaches and cream. I definitely have days (or even years!) where I wonder if I’m crazy, or worse, if I’m scarring my kids for life! But I always go back to my reasons for homeschooling, and that puts everything back into perspective for me! I have to say that so far, this year has started off better than any year I can remember! so YAY!
I feel like I did a lot of rambling in this post, so I apologize if I’m all over the place: that’s what happens when I don’t post for a long time! But now I’m back, and I plan to post regularly! oh, and I’m starting my writing class tomorrow night, so I’ll be pumped up about writing and will want to post all about it!
Have a great night!
