I guess this proves that I’ve made it through a pretty sucky summer: The Summer of Mom’s Lung Cancer. An awful lot of it was spent running Mom to her various appointments, but she made it through 4 Cyberknife radiation treatments at UPMC.
I’m trying really hard not to think about how much I miss my kids (they’ve only been gone 45 minutes) or how I should’ve done a better job parenting them this summer…or throughout their early childhoods, for that matter.
I’m trying to focus on taking positive steps in my own life: more regular exercise, drinking more water (I convinced myself I had kidney stones late last night), yoga classes, hitting the gym, healthy meals.
I also took a bold step by signing up for NaNoWriMo: National Novel Writing Month, in November. Last year at this time, I took a part time job, which didn’t last. This might be my last chance to prove to myself whether writing is really for me.
So here’s to a new school year, and fresh starts…for everyone!
How are you celebrating the start of a new school year?
