I Need(ed) a Time Out

I haven't posted a blog in over a week.  I haven't read any of my favorite blogs.  (I've missed you.) I haven't spent much time on Facebook or Twitter.  And I haven't sent out any emails unless absolutely necessary. 

I still have 2 short stories to work on for one of my classes.  I still have one last book to read. My last day of class is Tuesday.  And Tuesday can't come fast enough. 

This semester. Kicked. My. Butt.  

I purposely missed registration for next semester. I'm only 4 classes away from graduating with an MFA. But I'm going to take a semester off.  I'm trying to tell myself that I'm not quitting or dropping out.  I just need the break.  I know that I'm too close not to finish.  There are just other things going on that need my attention.

Yesterday, we took The Boy to see another developmental pediatrician - we're trying to get another evaluation done.  And start the headache of the medicaid waiver.  The doctor also asked if The Boy is on medication.  He isn't.  I know it's a conversation we may need to have.  But that's for a whole other blog post. 

Do you know there are only 15 days until Christmas Eve?  We haven't put a tree.  Waiting until next weekend for that.  We just started our holiday shopping.  Will I send out cards?  I'm still undecided.  But even if I don't send out cards, it's not that I don't like you.  I just didn't have time this year. 

I don't know about you but we LOVE watching Charlie Brown's Christmas.
