Apologies for the neglect....and my sabbatical.

I have been terribly neglectful of this old blog.  The reason is I have to use all my available brain power for writing papers and doing research this summer.  What is left of my brain is used to think up somewhat creative activities to keep these kids busy!  This is the summer that never was.  I detest summer school, but unfortunately I have to take 6 hours this summer for my residency requirement.  I will be done with that in August then, the real work begins.  Data collection in the fall, comps and propose in spring, defend in the summer.  I feel like Alice when she falls in the rabbit hole, strange pieces of my life floating around me and there is absolutely nothing I can do about it.  But behind the madness is a purpose and a goal, and I am almost there!! Praise God!  I think after this I will have had my fill of school FOREVER.
Regardless.  God is good.  My kids are healthy and they get along about 50% of the time.  The other 50% of the time, they are learning to work through their fights, in time out.  HAHA.
I cannot post anything else till after mid August, when my writing is done.  This is my sabbatical from writing for fun. So sorry!
