Back to Life, Back to Reality

I’ve sometimes felt like being a Stay at Home Mom was like being in an alternate reality. Your whole life revolves around other people, heck, there was a time (was a time? Even NOW sometimes) that I can’t even go pee without someone banging on the door demanding something “RIGHT NOW” and I’ve identified with the roles of “Wife” and “Mother” so well I’ve sorta lost sight of who I am. And that’s changing.

I’m heading back into the reality of having a life of my own. I’m starting new hobbies, reconnecting with friends, and spending more time on romance with my husband than simply existing to clean up the most recent mess or illness. More than all that, I’m facing my fears for the first time in a long time. I’m starting with a catch-up.

I started school again today. I’ve spent a lot of time getting educated so that I could be a productive member of society. However, I neglected some of the most basic of resume boosting credentials. I am really looking forward to upgrading my skills.

DSC07814The Cheeky Princess and the Marshmallow Kid are trying out new things too and are both in school full time. Yay! I can devote my energy to saving up for their college funds! I won’t be online as often as I used to be, but I’m not giving up on this blog.

I haven’t had artists to blab about for the last couple weeks and I’m feeling like I’m neglecting you, my readers. So I’m gonna use a cop-out. I am going to show you a drawing The Cheeky Princess drew a couple weeks ago. And I will set you up with a video of a really cute kitten playing fetch. Yep. Fetch. Come back Sunday to see it!

In the meantime, be good to yourselves and everyone around you. Life is Good!
