Yep, I am still alive...

Can I just say that the past few weeks have been murderous??

My Papa Bear passed away and I couldn't get to his funeral or service because there wasn't enough time. So, now both him and my Grandma are gone...an entire portion of my childhood - gone! It has been so sad for me to know that I will never see the inside of their house again. And I won't ever hear him call me Christie Jean Jelly Bean Anna Poo Poo. Sounds ludicrous, I know...but it is a part of who I am. It has taken me a while to get out of the funk. I know that he is so much better off...he was so sick. And he is finally reunited with my Grandma. So, I know it's all smiles for him. :) :) Just hard for the ones left behind.

I went back to work. I started classes. And I finished my externship up. Now, you can see why these past few weeks have been so hard.

I will have to get caught back up here in the next few days! I am still alive and kicking....just trying to doggie paddle to keep my head above water!

Ahhh, it's been awhile....

Things have been so hectic around here. Between going into the nursing home, getting Bayleigh here and there, and getting ready to go back to work next week. And of course, the residual exhaustion! I am so ready to take a nap one day soon....maybe Saturday.

I have been able to talk to Andy at night. We meet on yahoo at midnight our time. It is nice to be able to talk with him every night. We get to talk about things that we wouldn't normally talk about while he was home. It is healthy...it is helping us grow and be a better couple.

I finished a scrapbook page today! I hope to do one more tomorrow too. I have to get cracking, I have been slacking so bad. I don't feel the pressure to scrap pictures and get them done. I just *need* to create in order to have balance in my life. I have to release the creativity, so I feel stable and sane.

Hopefully, you are all doing well. Staying busy and healthy!
