Since it's been over 2 months since you last heard anything from me here, I thought it was high time for a little update on what's been going on in my life. :)
My days have been so packed, every single minute I have of true spare time (yes, I now count my spare time in the minutes, not hours), is spent with my little family, or just taking time to breathe. :)
At the end of February, I started some school: an online course to become a medical transcriptionist. It's been fairly intensive, my goal has been approximately 3-4 hours of school every day except Sundays, and a few other days here and there.  As I'm sure you can appreciate, this doesn't leave a whole lot of time for, well, anything else!
So there it is. My life right now.  I am allowed 12 months to complete the course, so we're anticipating a pretty intense year in a lot of ways. On the plus side, I'm learning to be more scheduled, organized, and disciplined than ever before, which is awesome! It's amazing how you can really structure your day to accomplish more when you have to!  You also realize exactly what your priorities are in life.
I would love to finish off with something pithy and brilliant, but my brain cells, like my time, are rather occupied elsewhere. So instead of words, I'll show you a few snapshots of my life recently. :)

My very first dandelion bouquet from Ian (yes, his daddy helped him pick it :)

My baby girl enjoying our awesome backyard.

Sharing mommy's tea (mug :P)

My beautiful Jasmine is growing up so fast! She is such a delight!

We have a great playground minutes from our house which Ian loves!

So, until the next time!
