It has been a little over 3 months since I have written a post. In some respect 3 months seems like such a short amount of time however as I reflect on my life over these past months I would say it is not.
When last we met it was May and I was telling you just how busy a month it would be for me/us as a family. So let me catch you up on my life.
In June we celebrated the birth of our first grandson, Ethan John. He was followed soon thereafter by a cousin, our second granddaughter and sister to Piper…Lucy. All absolute joys and if I can ever get my Photoshop squared away I will have plenty of pictures to share with you.
I rather suddenly felt called to return to my pursuit of completing my degree. For several years I was actively working on completing my BS(I have a 3 year diploma in nursing) however in 2010 I put my studies on hold as I was a bit overwhelmed in life. So I took a course in the beginning of the summer…got an A! and find myself once again in a holding pattern. You see when I began this pursuit in 2005 or so my intention was to finish the BS and enroll in an APRN program. Since that time however the entry level for APRN’s has changed and I find myself re-thinking the entire process. So I have sent my transcripts off to another program and await news of acceptance.
Yoga. A new found pleasure since our last meeting has been discovered in my life. Plenty of stretching past the comfort zone here! I have also found the secret to tolerating the monotony of the treadmill…a great audiobook! You can only listen while working out, it is like the great reward.
I wrote on several occasions this past spring of my plans to volunteer at the Hole in the Wall Gang Camp for a week. This experience is worthy of a post on its own…photo’s too! Definitely worth repeating.
What else past the months? A trip to Boston, business mixed with pleasure. A wedding, plenty of swimming during the hottest July on record in the Northeast, a few sailboat excursion with our friends Doug and Joanne, a couple of fun foodie groups, hiking, BBQing, entertaining, birding, gardening, enjoying…lots of “ing”ing! Oh and quite a bit of reading- again probably worthy of a couple of blog posts.
Steven and I leave next Wednesday for a trip out west. We fly into Vegas and will rent a convertible to drive to the Grand Canyon, Sedona and back to Nevada. I cannot wait. 7 whole days with nothing but my guy, the great outdoors and God. I am expecting great things!
I look forward to reconnecting with my blogging friend. Until then…
Be authentic and enjoy life! Three months seems short but as I reflect back upon it much living has been compressed into those 90 days.
