After a long, long summer turned to fall I decided that I am taking time off from teaching and going to school until the 1st of the year. I am in the process of very nasty testing on my hated but much-needed kidneys. With my health issues and such, I figured it was a good time to slow down and regroup things in my life.

I want to get writing again but need to determine what path to take with it. I need to figure out what path I want to take in this fork in the road…so I decided I am taking until the first of the year to figure life out.

This isn’t a bad thing or me in a spiral again. I am just so grateful for the life I have right now that I want to take the time to enjoy it as well as look at where I need improving.

What does this all mean? That I am going to enjoy the holidays, the chilly weather, baking cookies, reading, snowball fights, sitting by my mother-in-law’s fireplace, drinking Ck’s amazing hot chocolate. All things amazing. Life is too short as it is and the busier it gets the faster time flies!

My first-born turned 15 this month and my youngest will be 7 next month, with my middle child turning 14 in Feb. They are growing up way too fast.

If anyone has a book they want to recommend or want me to review for them, this is a great opportunity to do so.

Well, back to work. I am grateful for all of you being apart of my life.

Hugs to all~Shan
