I’m sure that those of you that read our little blog have noticed that we’ve been away for just a little bit now, but the thing is, it’s not over.
Kayleigh and I aren’t done writing on the blog after the fifty posts that we’ve written (yes, this is post number fifty!), things have just gotten even busier lately. I know, I know, we said that things were going to get better with posting and not worse, but stuff keeps popping up (that we knew about) that aren’t allowing as much time as we had hoped for, at least for the time-being.
We were gone for like, five days in Arizona visiting my family and that took up some of our time, and sad to say, we weren’t able to keep up while we were gone because we just needed to try and enjoy our time there rather than stress. When you’re with family, you want to spend your time with that family, rather than on the computer, so I figured it was okay to skip this while we were there.
Then, I started school again and found out that this semester is going to be a little more intense than I’d even realized. I enrolled in summer classes to get in-state tuition and to try to knock some credits out quickly, and that’s really what all of this is: quick. I’ve got a total of sixteen days in class to complete Psychology, so there’s a lot of reading and cramming going on and it’s taking up a bunch of time. I’m also doing a full English class in six weeks, so bear with me. Those of you who have taken summer college classes can understand how little time I have, especially with working and spending time with the family as well.
Now, with me being gone so much more—like from 8-ish AM to 7:30, and then having homework to do once I get home, and an Emmy to help get down—Kayleigh has more on her plate with Emerson as well. She now has to basically be Emmy’s soul caretaker and she doesn’t get a break. At all. Ever. She’s doing fantastic though and is rocking it as a mama, and I’m so proud of her for doing what she’s doing. She’s, as I’ve said before, a total rockstar and is holding down the fort while I’m off trying to fit a million things into my brain every day.
This is parenting. This is the real shit. Life is a struggle. We carry on.
Talk to you soon.
