Hello. It's been a while. I took a sabatical.
I started writing my book today. About everything that's happened in the last 2 1/2 years. Since Joe was born, had a "nasty" bout of PPD, had to go off and hide and sort things out. I think I can say I've emerged from my cave. Ooo, daylight.
I can't say how long I've been on leave from MCD. Over a year, at least. I probably won't recognize anyone, nor will they me.
I went back to school. So I'm not a ft-sahm, but I took the summer off. Working on my BS, currently I'm thinking sociology as my major, pre-naturopathic med as my pre-professional track, on to National College of Naturopathic med after, then perhaps back for an MSW (social work), or psychology and perhaps top it off with a doc in theology. Thinking of research into holistic health care. Or something. Assuming I even finish my BS. But, I can dream about it in the mean time.
When I'm in school I go 3 days a week, where Joe attends daycare/school, then 2 with me, and if I've got lots of homework, he hangs with his grandma.
Joe is a fabulous kid. And I'm not just saying that, I've taken surveys. www.frogtown.com/baby/
there used to be pictures, dh says it's forthcoming.
We have 2 cats, 9 year old Milo and Binkley, they're brothers and they're both orange. One long hair, one short.
My mother-in-law lives with us and my mom lives 3 miles away.
I'm thinking a subtitle for my book should be Post Partum Ecstasy - the spiritual kind, not the 'just happy' kind.
