The past few weeks have felt even more jam-packed. First of all, buying a house is extremely difficult, especially when every experience in this arena has thrown more obstacles my way than I could have imagined or prepared for. In the middle of the negotiation process, my apartment was re-rented, so I had to be out within a few days...yes, at the start of the school year. The extra special bonus was finding time to pack when my husband was starting a new job 1 hour away and while I had rehearsals and cross country practices. I did this to myself, but it didn't make it any less stressful. This is where you're supposed to tell me: "I told you so!"
Anyway, I know things will get easier soon. Once we're moved in, my show is over, and cross country season ends, things will slow down. Despite my desire to be busy, I think I need this time to crash. Today, for example, is my first day with NOTHING extra to do in over 3 weeks. Yep, 3 weeks. That's not healthy.
This is why I haven't been blogging regularly. When I am stressed, I become more withdrawn. I need space. What's hard is that although I'm a natural introvert, my job and extracurricular activities require me to be bold and extraverted. Therefore, when I come home, I need to be alone so I can recharge and breathe again.
I sincerely thank you for your patience. I have so many ideas and materials to post, but in the end, I have to do what's best for me, my family, and my school. That means taking a break when I need one. I promise I will return at full capacity soon!
