I’m back, y’all! I have made it through this busy spring semester and came out the other side relatively unscathed! I’m feeling footloose and fancy free now! Well, not entirely. I went in to work twice this week and did a few work to-do’s the last couple of days so, you know. If it helps me feel on top of things then we’re all good.
When the new year started I knew I wanted to build this little space online, as many bloggers or aspiring bloggers hope to do, but I also wanted to find a better balance in my personal and work life. When it came down to it, what I really needed to do was take care of business first. That looked a little different because I started with resting at home so I was ready for go the next day, refreshed and ready to work. When I was at work, it was head down, getting things done, no time to waste and when I got home, it was all about unwinding. I needed a different cycle to the day and that meant stepping away from blog dreams more often than I wanted. I can say though it really did make for a better semester for me so maybe it all balances out in the end.
Life, right? A constant flow of back & forth, focus here then over there to find the right rhythm for the day. I feel like that’s the new catch phrase—it’s not longer “balance” but “rhythm,” which is kind of a beautiful way of speaking to the cadence of your day. Finding that rhythm of life…which makes me think of Sweet Charity. Anyone else?
So, my Pyro Man has one more day of finals before he’s out for the summer. I’m so proud of all his hard work and I cannot wait for him to enjoy a well deserved break this summer. One more semester and I’ll have an electrical engineer in the house officially! While he’s been spending the last few nights studying, I’ve picked back up my crochet project from last year and I’m 1/3 of the way done. These little granny squares are taking me way longer than I thought but I honestly am so motivated to finish this afghan, it doesn’t matter how long they take. This blanket is going to be completed this summer! Pictures to follow, of course.
That’s life as of right now, folks. A little calm before the storm of summer classes comes along and I’m totally fine with enjoying this resting period. Maybe these May showers will bring about a few more posts this month, too. We shall see!
