Well, here I am. 329 days since the last blog post, and now I'm back. Why the sabbatical? No real reason, no excuse, other than that old chestnut "life got in the way". The last post was on my 38th birthday, which also happened to be my first day of college classes. This is "College: Part Deux", by the way, 16 years after I got my degree, knew everything there was to know, and set out to conquer the world.
Anyway, I intend to be much more prolific around here in the future, and I'm sorry for just dropping out of sight like that. I'll do my best to give you the VERY abbreviated version of what has happened in the last 329 days. That is, if anyone is still around to read this blog anyway...........
I'm now officially halfway through the Music Therapy program, and I know without a doubt that this was the right decision for me to make for my life and my future. Two more semesters of classes, a 6 month internship, and I'm ready to be certified as an MT. I'll be 40 by then, but hey.........40 is the new 30, isn't that what they say? Or is it 50 is the new 40? Or pink is the new black? I can never keep that stuff straight.
Mr. Literal just finished 3rd grade (!) and Energizer finished Kindergarten. Both had good years, but continue to struggle in various ways. I'll write more about their school year adventures over the next few weeks. Next school year starts in slightly less than a month, and their teachers have been chosen (the ones I asked for!), so I've got high hopes for another good year.
So, again, sorry for being MIA.......or was it AWOL..........? But I'm back, and looking forward to reclaiming my spot in the blogosphere. :)
