Welcome to the fabulous and sometimes insane life
of a working mother who is trying hard not to
let her whole existence be determined by her
cute little munchkins, yet continues to be drawn
in by the adorable and sometimes annoying tiny people!

Have Fallen Into a Black Hole

I feel as if I have really fallen into a black hole. I have completely disappeared from blogging. Seriously don't know when the last time was that I blogged (I know I could check, but I am too lazy!). I have even lost a follower. Go on hiatus for a couple of weeks and people take flight! What's that about?

Anyway, I am just completely overwhelmed right now. I am teaching 3rd grade and not leaving school until 4:30 or 5 every day. Then when I get home there are the three munchkins and all of the things that go along with keeping up this disaster area that we call a house. I mean, seriously, they are about to call in FEMA to our living room because we have to wade through knee deep debris just to get to the couch.

Then on top of that I am at the end of my Educational Specialist degree. I am conducting an action research study on how a teacher-created website can help parents understand how their child is learning math. Check it out! It is taking a lot of work because I am creating PowerPoint presentations to go with every lesson and I am constantly updating the website. Needless to say, when I am on the computer it is not to blog but to work.

Plus, it is football season. This means that I am currently a single parent for the majority of the time. I don't even get breathing room until about 8 o'clock at night. And by then I am so far behind with college work and grading papers that I work until 10 or 11 and still can't seem to catch my breath!

Anyway, I just wanted you all to know that I am still alive. I am still kicking, and soon I will still be blogging. Don't abandon me! Don't take flight! And don't worry...I have NOT fallen into a black hole!

real life takes over sometimes and followers come and go... just don't forget to take a minute a day to breathe!!!! I take huge deep breaths while I'm driving and hold it for a second or two... amazing how that helps!!
