I won’t bore with the details. I am a full-time employee in the last 4 months of my PhD program. My proposal hearing is in a few weeks and my completion date is July 1. I have a 5-year-old and 2-year-old boy.

You can imagine that I pack 36 hour days into a mere 24 hours.

But I have missed having this space as a reflective place. A documenting place. I’ll kick myself for all the days that I let slip by without writing anything. So many little memories that could have been recorded. So many changes observed and commented upon. Months that flew by without a monthly letter written to honor the growth.

But, life is what happens when you make plans and I’ll have to live with that.

Penguin and Owl are beautiful boys. Let me share them with the world again.
