I know, I’ve been away for quite a bit, but I can explain.

You all know that I’m a single mom to three amazing boys. You all know I work an 8-5 full time job. You all don’t know that I recently returned to college. And like anything I do, I returned with a vengeance. Enough so that I’m now a Crimson Scholar. Basically, I’m an Honors college student. I’ve been aiming for that for I don’t know how long.

While doing all of the above, life happened. No, no boyfriends. No parties. Nothing fun like that. Instead, I almost lost my dad to another heart attack (he’s hanging tough, but he’s not out of the woods) and I had some oral surgery done.

Plus, my autistic 5 year old started regular kindergarten, and he has an insane amount of homework each night. Yes. You read that right. My kindergartener has homework. Every. Night. My 7th grader with honors classes doesn’t ever have homework, but yeah, my 5 year old has almost as much homework as I do. And throw in the autism, and you may get an idea of just how overwhelming, stressful and tear inducing my nights have become. But we push through.

I am working on time management, I just don’t have a lot left to manage lately. But I will be back. In the meantime, enjoy some random photos I took when we all went on vacation.
