I'm not dead...

I just look like I am!
This is the first Friday night since school started that I haven't crawled into bed at 8pm.  Nope, here it is, 8:50pm and Michael and I are sitting at Starbucks catching up on our social media sites. But not for much longer. We'll soon be heading home as Michael has a training session tomorrow morning in food handling. He is working as a youth support worker and its just one of many certifications he has to acquire.
Me, well I am still working about 70 hours a week but can see the light at the end of the hallway ....sorta.  By the time I get home each day my brain is totally empty and I go through the motions of getting myself ready for the next work day and creep between the covers with a book. I last about 5 minutes and then turn off the light.
I have much to tell you about and really miss you guys! I hope, in time, I can become more regular in my posting but I'm not going to make any promises to post 3 or 5 times a week or anything.  But I will make a comeback, you CAN count on that!

Happy weekend my friends!

  8. So glad to hear from you Jane and know that you're okay, although completely beat. This school year must really be something else to have you so exhausted.

  9. I was blog hopping and was intrigued by your blog title. I like your philosophy - too many people think they have to wait for retirement to start doing everything they've always wanted to do. I follow your philosophy - we need to live in the present, not keep looking to the future.
