A couple of days ago, a friend of mine mentioned that she missed my blogging. As soon as she said out out loud, I heard a voice in my mind say that I did, too. It is very cathartic to get your thoughts down and organized. I miss having a place to go to that I can work through what's going on in my head.
Yep, here I am. (Rock you like a hurricane... Gah, the 80's really had the best music to segue into.) Going to try this, yet again. I make no promises to keep it up though.
Let's play catch up. Mr. T is home on break right now. It has been the best having him here. When he's home, the world tends to spin a little more smoothly. I don't have that constant, dull ache in the pit of my stomach (also, referred to as anxiety by those in the know).
We just celebrated one year of living in the Shake Yo Booty Casa. This year has flown by. So many things in my life have changed in that short time. Even with all of the ups and downs, I wouldn't trade a single minute of it. I love living here. I love being home. My soul feels like I am slowly unwinding and shaking off years of stress and homesickness. I don't feel constantly sad, or worried, or lonely, or like a vital organ is missing.
It is very true to say that I am a Memphis girl. This is where my soul breathes deepest.
Sweet T had to go back to Cajun Country on Saturday. Not only does that suck in every sense of the word, but it was also Mr. T's birthday, so it double sucked. We miss her so much when she's not here. Having her here just makes it feel like everything is right in the world again. She really is the most beautiful soul, and we feel so lucky to get to help get grow up.
Richard Spud is starting sixth grade at a private school this fall. We are all so excited for him, but I suspect he is quite a bit nervous. It is going to be a huge change for him, well, really for all of us. That never stopped us from pushing forward, though. I think he is going to really do fantastic, and I can't wait to see where this next season of his life takes him.
I am three weeks away from being a licensed Certified Dental Assistant! I am going to be legally allowed to work on patients. Holy. Mother. I don't feel at all prepared for that. It scares the bejezus out of me. Even though I am kicking ass in class, clinicals are an entirely different thing, altogether. Little known fact: dental assistants are basically the nurses of the dental world, and as such, you have to learn a LOT of science. Who knew? I can't believe I actually made it this far. I honestly didn't think I had it in me when I first started. But, here I am. No one is more surprised than I am.
That's enough for today. Got to go finish the house, shower, and study for school tonite. Hopefully, I will remember this blog and actually keep it up. But, if I don't, at least I remembered today. =)
