My mind and heart have not been on writing lately. Cody called the last month or so “a perfect storm of events.” I started a new job at Fox Valley Technical College teaching Business Communications right before we closed on our house and moved in. This may not seem like a lot, but it has been very stressful. With carpet cleanings, duct cleanings, painting, moving, unpacking, cleaning two homes, spending money and trying to figure out how to teach a new course, I have felt like I am on the verge of a losing my mind and especially my patience. Don’t get me wrong, having a job and being able to buy a new home are not things to complain about, but the timing of everything has brought on tears and depression for me.
