So, you may or may not have noticed that posting has been sporadic at best lately. The main reason for this is that I recently started an accelerated nursing program, so as you can imagine my life revolves around an array of circulating deadlines. I’m living from minute to minute, day to day, people. On top of that, we are moving into major allergy season, for me at least. This is the time of year where I am reminded that, yes, I am still an asthmatic and yes, one person can produce that much mucus all on their own. TMI, I know, but it’s horrifyingly true.
My husband, the brilliant and funny man that I share my life with is out of work again; has been since October. This does not bode well for our finances when I’m holding down a full-time job, but now that I am a full-time student (first time since middle school) with no employment we are essentially feeling screwed. However, we have had some fortuitous circumstances that thus far have kept the money worries to a minimum, thank goodness. On that note, my hubby is using this “free time” to lose some weight and getting in shape. I, playing the benevolent and devoted spouse, am trying to be supportive, which entails working out and eating right myself. Whatever that really comes down to, right? In our case, it means lots more time in the kitchen and buying cleats for indoor soccer.
Now in an effort to pump out some new chapters for ya’ll and for my own wellbeing, I have been guzzling coffee to stay up till all hours of the morning to write and study, and ultimately procrastinate via Sid Meier’s Civ V, Sims, Netflix and various webcomics. You know the routine all too well if you’ve been a writer, student or general internet savvy human being. All of this is ultimately undermining steps taken in Paragraph 2 *see above*
Well, that’s my update. I hope to get Chapter 26 up very shortly. It’s an exciting one, promise.
