No Excuses

So much for making time to write on my blog each week!

I have not updated since the beginning of November because of a whirlwind of school-related projects, work-related drama and some personal projects that took precedence due to so many impending deadlines!

Today is the day when the kids and I leave for the USA! We will be visiting family and friends for two weeks, and Yusuke will join us mid-next week to celebrate Xmas with my family.

Up until today, I was running around like a headless chicken during the day and collapsing from exhaustion at night. This week, in between packing, I decided that making this lay out was essential because when I get back in January and feel refreshed, I will have forgotten some of these pertinent details of what made the last two months so amazing and so hellish all the same time.

Please click on the lay out to see it in more detail and to read the Journaling.

Merry Xmas to Everyone...I hope to write more in the next couple weeks if I have some downtime. I have just been given two homework assignments though - read a novel for class and write a report for the Board of Education. It never ends.

(The template used for the lay out was designed by Cathy Zielske, and the digital papers and elements are from a kit called "Make a Change" by L Banasiak.)

It's ironic that I made so many typos on the one bullet point about getting a masters degree. I'll have to go back and fix that.

Huh, I thought the Japanese were too polite in public to heckle.

You look good in that close-up of the author and you.
