It’s not been intentional. I was actually away from my usual routines for much of June and July. Summer around these parts is more laid back in some ways and then more busy in others. We run around quite a bit, we visit friends and family, we go to the park all the time and we just be.

It’s great.

But I am getting back into the swing of a nearing autumn. I am also working through the seven millionth draft of my dissertation proposal. Soon it will be done and my mind will be free again to write the way I want to write. I’ll have the energy to share stories about my family and my children and I’ll stop cluttering my brain with thoughts of mental health service use and APA citations.  I look forward to that.

So here I am again. It’s good to be home.
