2017, Already

January, already. And well into it, no less. 

Once again, I’ve been remiss about blogging. 

I’d say that we’ve been busy…and I suppose we have. The kids were home for their Christmas break, and as always, it seemed to go much too fast. We tried to squeeze in all the doctor and dentist appointments we’d been putting off, along with a trip to North Carolina to visit my mom for Christmas. Which was nice and relaxing, and we did a lot of this….

Unfortunately, the time passed much too quickly and before we knew it we were saying goodbye to Paige and both kids were back in school. 

But… I’M taking some classes at Flagler this semester too! Flagler offers some “lifetime learning” classes for the community, which I’ve wanted to take in the past but never managed to sign up for in time. This time  I did, and I’m taking a French class (from a darling French lady 🇫🇷) and a very intriguing (and timely! 🤔) class on Putin and Post Communist Russia taught by an ex-CIA operative. I’m quite excited about trying something new!

A bientôt ~

Mom’s Day Off

The past week has been a blur of packing boxes, cleaning out closets, and trying to keep up with P’s schedule as she finishes up her senior year of high school. She has been studying like crazy the past couple of weeks and took her AP exams last week, as well as the College Algebra Clep exam (which she passed…yay!) This week, since she is finished with her AP classes and her Math class (thanks to passing that Clep test), she is focusing on her Ethics presentation which is this Thursday and Friday during “Senior Symposium” and which counts as her Ethics final exam. Next week she will have her last two final exams, in French and Anatomy, and then we have Orientation at FSU…and then GRADUATION! 

A few days after graduation, we are moving. Again. And I have so much packing to do. Ugh. 

But last weekend, P and I played hooky for a few hours from all of our responsibilities and we went to the beach. And it was wonderful. 


It was relaxing and calming and blissful to sit and listen to the waves and the birds and soak up a little vitamin D…


Next weekend is Prom for P. She’s going with a group of friends this year…and also, guess who is on Prom Court? 😉
