Life lately has been all about adjusting – adjusting to having our children home(!!!), adjusting to schooling 100% from home (before 3/4 of my classes were online; now all four are online and being attended from home), adjusting to working from home, and adjusting to being home – and sharing that home with four other people, not to mention eight animals.
All in all, the adjustments are a very good thing, even if some of the adjustments are due to a very bad thing (coronavirus).
TODAY. Alyssa and Ryan are coming home TODAY, March 19, 2020.
Our family is finally being put back together! ❤️
I’m trying out a new host, so if jenn.love momentarily disappears, that’s what’s up.
I suppose part of blogging is oversharing about what I’m up to at any given time. Right now I’m sitting in one of the lounges at Harrisburg Area Community College, waiting for my lone on-campus class, Honors Introduction to Sociology, to start.
Yes…I’m in college. I’m taking my 20 years of self-taught web design, search engine optimization, and social media management and marketing and turning it all into an Associates Degree. I’m a full-time student in HACC’s Web Design and Development program. This semester’s course load consists of:
- Honors Introduction to Sociology
- WEB 101
- WEB 110
- WEB 125
Honors Introduction to Sociology is my only on-campus class, and it’s only twice a week. My other three classes are all online-only. This flexible school has its pros and cons for me. One obvious pro is a much more flexible schedule that allows me to be at home more – very important for upcoming things. But one con is I’m already bored, and it has only been a week.
Here’s to hoping the content gets more stimulating soon!
I’ve been saying it for weeks, thinking about it for months, and wanting it for more than a year. Now I’m finally doing it: I’m coming back to blogging.
I am by no means done, but I’ve got the “meat” of my blog put together. Now I just need to find the time/energy/motivation to customize the layout.
But for now…this works. But I’m still struggling with what to write about (or rather, how to articulate, in writing, the last two and a half years of my life!), so please, help jump-start my brain by Asking Me Anything.
We are in a financially stable position that enabled us to take in a stray pregnant cat. We named her Xena. On October 15, 2019 Xena gave birth to five kittens. All five are thriving. We are keeping Xena, and if circumstances allow possibly one or two kittens, but most likely we will be adopting them out as soon as they are fully weaned from their mother.
We can’t save all of the stray cats in the world, but we are able to save this one.
I’m slowly but surely finding my way back to me – and . I’ve lost so much of myself in the last decade, so much that I didn’t even realize how much of me was gone until I began the arduous process of putting myself back together.
One thing I never lost sight of? My family. And it’s the little things, like Happy Monthing each other (this month’s winner is a toss-up between Dan, through a proxy; and Ryan), that remind me of how important my family is. Family is everything. Family: I love you guys! ♥
P.S. It feels so awkward/weird/good/amazing to blog!
