If you hadn’t noticed, I took a break from my blog. Well, more like a vacation. I have had so much going on that I had to give up a few things like crafting, blogging, things that I enjoy to solely focus on school and stuff at home. At the beginning of July, I actually spoke with my academic advisor and weighed my options of taking a 5 week LOA (Leave of Absence). I solely take online classes and I start a new class every five weeks. I was currently taking a statistics class an it burned me out. I’m not good with math in general and then we are assigned team in the class and since we are all in different time zones and live different lives, it just added more stress like trying to make sure everyone was doing their part of the assignment and the fact that if someone messed up, it affected our entire grade. I take to my academic advisor about what all I had planned in July- going to Illinois for a wedding, getting 4 kids ready for back to school, getting the house decluttered which I’ve been wanting to do for a while but never have the time, not being so stressed b the end of the night that I can’t focus on my homework…..
In the end, we decided it was the perfect time for me to take a 5 week break so I did and it was the best decision I ever made. I start back tomorrow, Aug 15th, and I guess I’m ready. I was able to focus on getting my kids ready for their first day of school which was Aug 8th and they’re settled in so now it’s my turn.
I have so much stuff to share but I just wanted to make a hello post to let whoever follows my blog know that I’m alive and back.
I hope everyone has been doing great and had a wonderful summer! Ours on the Gulf Coast was sort of meh! It rained a lot which didn’t leave a lot of time for the beach and our kids friends who are our neighbors were mainly in summer camp all day so they couldn’t play with their friends a lot until they got home so they were just so “bored” at home all day with mom, lol.
