Today was the first day of school.
Technically, it's my senior year, but I have a year and a half to go and Joshua has two. So we'll be "super-seniors," which isn't that big a deal...a lot of people follow the five-year plan. Or four and a half, in my case.
We didn't get to bed nearly early enough last night, so that might contribute to my tiredness. I'm exhausted. It'll probably take a few days to get used to the school schedule again. I don't have a massively busy schedule, but it's plenty. Figuring in classes, work, homework, meal-making, cleaning, dishes, and time with friends and most importantly with Joshua...it's a little overwhelming. But I know we'll get into a system, and I'll get used to it. I always do. :)
So far I've only been to three of my eight classes. Two of them are choir and handbells, which both are very familiar. I have two new professors this semester, and I met both of them today. I think this will be a good semester. I'm looking forward to all my classes. They will all be useful and interesting. :)
I want to keep blogging, and linking up, but I have a feeling that, at least for a while, blogging might have to take the back burner. I know writing is really, really important, but did you see that list of everything I have to do every day?
Give me a couple weeks. At the most, a month. I'll keep writing as much as I can...but it might be a little less than usual in the next few weeks. Bear with me. Stick with me if you want to. Keep your eyes open... I'll keep posting. I'll be here. I just might be a little scarce for a while. :)
Because this is important to me. Writing. Blogging. Keeping up with this community. I know I have an obligation to my readers, to keep on keepin' on. I have even more of an obligation to myself. This is important.
But I talk a lot about priorities...keeping first things first. Blogging is an important thing, but it's not a first thing. Not right now. So it will happen--I hope fairly regularly--but I need to keep other things first: God. My husband. My friends. School. Work.
Thanks for sticking with me. :)
