There are not enough hours in the day anymore. I haven't had much to write about it seems...mainly because I don't have time to think about what I could write about! For some reason, this semester of graduate school has been very intense. I'm taking two classes, and working full-time. So my free time is very limited. Most weekends are spent doing homework. I feel like I barely get to spend any time with Sadie these days, although we cuddle every night. I wish I could stay home with her more. I hope she understands in her own way...
The holidays are creeping up on us. I can't believe Thanksgiving is next week. How did that happen? It seems I might not even have a traditional Thanksgiving dinner next week...not sure how I feel about that, but I guess it's ok. The holidays just aren't the same anymore now that I'm older. They used to be so magical. Now they're stressful. I usually don't get to see either of my parents for the holidays now. They're both in Florida, and I'm here in NY. It's way too stressful (and expensive) to fly down for Christmas, so I usually go after the holidays. This year, I'll be going in the middle of January. It works for us, and we celebrate Christmas then, which is kind of fun. But I always get a bit nostalgic around Christmastime because it's just not the same anymore. I'll still be with family (my aunts, uncles, cousins, etc.), but it's different.
This Thanksgiving, I'll be going to my Aunt's house. I'll see both of my cousins, which will be nice. And one of my cousins will be taking pictures of me and Sadie for our Christmas card! So hopefully I will have some photos to share with you after that. I'm sure the holidays will be good. I think I'm just overwhelmed with the amount of work I have to get done for my classes before the holidays. My last class is on December 22, so I don't even get much time before Christmas!
Sorry if I don't post much in the coming weeks, but know I'm still here and reading everyone else's blogs :) I'm looking forward to the Corgi Butts Secret Santa Exchange this year. I know many of you are participating as well! We hope everyone is doing well.
