Not sure if anyone missed me, but I’ve missed you.
Although I’m not a “dedicated blogger” (whatever that means), I like to at least try to post something original 2-4 times a month. That was a little goal I set for myself when I started this adventure. But the end of the school year just hits me hard in May. My life is not my own. I get overwhelmed at school where I am trying to get kids to finish their art projects before the last week so I can grade it & get it back to them before the final day. That’s about 500 pieces of artwork!!!! All while planning the 8th grade Farewell Mass and Graduation with its practices & working with the Top 10 students on speeches, readings, and prayers. Oh, and the 8th grade artists who design the program cover for their Graduation! Whew!
“No excuses!” I was told by a friend when I complained I hadn’t been to the pool to swim for three weeks. Boy, am I out of shape in more ways than one! So, school ended last week & Friday I checked-out with my Principal. I’ve been to work-out in the pool 3 times already & have done yoga &/or pilates each morning that I did not swim. Hooray! <and, yes, I’m sore & tired>
So! No excuses! I’m back & looking forward to 2 1/2 months of reading, blogging, painting, gardening, sewing, praying, catching-up with friends & family, and generally trying to find a better way to be in the world. In short: Doing what matters.
