*tiptoes in, looks around*
Hi, all...my name is Leah, and I've been a bit - shall we say - AWOL for awhile. Pretty much like 3 months straight.
I got back from my visit to Seattle and was plunged into a CRAZY busy time in our unit - I pulled massive overtime in two weeks. Four mornings I stayed until 9am just catching up on charting. Then in the middle of all that I started my first class for my MSN, which demanded way more time than I expected. I just finished the class on Tuesday, and I'm finally coming up for air.
Meanwhile, we started cooking most of our meals at home, which required some meal planning and some teaching of my husband as to how to cook. And I learned how to make kombucha (which was taking up too much of our grocery budget and is actually not that hard to make).
I got an A.
I only got sick for one weekend.
I discovered some great new doable regular recipes.
But MAN am I tired.
I haven't written for fun in FOREVER. And there was no way I was doing NaNo, with three 3K academic papers to write in 10 days. I've got three weeks off and then I'm back in the hole again, although this time a bit wiser as to how to knock out the papers. A lot of unnecessary time was spent formatting the first few papers, and now I've got a system down.
I hope you all are doing well. I doubt I'll ever catch up on everything, but I can at least catch up on the present for the next couple weeks.
Or just get some rest...
