Before I disappeared for a few days, I felt like I was constantly trying to catch up on all of the things that needed to get done before I left. Now that I’m back, I feel like I’m still playing catch up. I’m starting to wonder if we ever really catch up or if we constantly just add more to our plates.

One of the things among my catching up is a blog post about my adventures last week. I did take a few days away to visit the boyfriend in Arkansas (he was there to visit family). Long distance may be one of the toughest things a couple can face, but nothing can describe the feeling of seeing each other again after 5 months.

Sadly, that’s all I can say on the matter right now because it’s approaching 11 pm and I have a 5:30 wake up for work. I will be playing catch up and posting more about my trip sometime between now and Sunday….when I find a few minutes between lesson planning, grading, report cards, another trip out of town (just a day trip with Bestie N this time), running writing workshops, and all the other things piling up on the calendar.

Until then, enjoy this little shot from our trip to the art museum…

Full story on this picture and the trip to come! Until then, enjoy life!
