Yesterday was May 25, 2014… wasn’t it??? Somehow I have “lost” the last 3 months of my life!! Crazy!
Quick recap is in order I guess….
June… did some professional development for two weeks. Ran a 200 mile relay… ever heard of a Ragnar? Yep, I am addicted! If you don’t know what one is, check it out… I have been told that I am either crazy or stupid. I tell people they don’t know what they are missing. Had a major meltdown in my world… was convinced that I was going to die… literally. After a whole host of things I would rather not go into here, let’s just say that I am NOT dying… medication is my friend, and acupuncture is not as scary as I once thought it was.
July… panicked because I realized that school (for me) started on July 23. This was actually no surprise, but for some reason I did not realize just how short my summer was this year. YUCK!
August… Students started school on August 4… (see why I panicked!) Ran ANOTHER Ragnar… seriously… you need to check it out!
Today… life is starting to turn the corner. I say that with a “knock on wood” because it seems like every time I think it is shifting in to a positive place… something slams me back to reality. I am not a pessimist by any stretch of the imagination, but, I have been through this enough to know…
My goal to live simply is alive and well… I take one box of whatever out the door at least twice a week. If I had my way, I would take everything out of my house TODAY, take it to the studs and sub-flooring, and start completely over. I know it is a work in progress, but I get impatient. I will start posting pictures of some of the things I have accomplished despite my really short summer… look for that soon…
One Day and Counting… til my house is my own again!!! (its a really long story)
