Sunflowers and a Break

Hey, y'all. I had to pop in for a minute.  It's been almost two weeks since my last blog post.  I try not to go that long between posts, but life happens.  You know how that is.

I haven't necessarily been busier than normal. It's just that I'm trying to manage my time well and stay focused.  My week consists of work, soccer, running, grad school, and trying to keep my house from drowning in clutter. Unfortunately for the moment, the blog is pretty low on the list of priorities.

Speaking of my house drowning in clutter, my house is currently drowning in clutter. I've never been the neatest person (like ever), but good grief -- I've gotta make more time for my home. I talked with my grandma on the phone a couple of days ago, and she told me that I had no excuses -- that she kept a neat home while working two jobs and raising her girls. I appreciated the pep talk, though it just confirmed for me that the Superwoman gene skipped me.  Darn.

Grad school has been going fine.  It's mid-October and I haven't become super-stressed yet. It's mainly because I've been laying low on the weekends.  NOT trying to do every dang-on thing. I've been spending plenty of hours on the weekends just focusing on my studies.  You know, like I'm supposed to?  And guess what?  It's working.

We were supposed to get a couple of edited chapters of research back from our professor last week, but it looks like she hasn't quite finished them yet. When I hadn't heard from her by Friday, I knew it was gonna be a good weekend. So I made the most of it.  I hung out with some longtime/childhood friends in Atlanta this weekend to celebrate the beautiful home one just built. I believe the unexpected weekend off was God's little way of saying to me, "Well done.  You've worked hard.  Now treat yourself." And I did.

I hope to post a few pics from that soon as well as some pics of M's recent adventures -- her first ever field trip at school, and then her day on Auburn Avenue (Atlanta) with my dad and stepmom.  Good times, y'all.

In the meantime, I hope y'all have a fantastic week. Be back soon.

PS - The pictures are a couple of snapshots from M's field trip where there happened to be a beautiful sunflower garden. Who doesn't love sunflowers?
