Thirty Eight.

So it’s been a while since I posted. Well, I’ve posted, but they weren’t terribly thought out posts.

It’s been 38 days since I landed back in the country. 38 days since I’ve had a minute to myself to catch my breath and relax.

In those 38 days, I shot and edited and delivered 12 senior sessions, shot a 1-year old birthday and a swim meet. I worked 30 hours at the Taste of Madison (not including office work for it), another 43 for It’s Glow Time!, plus numerous hours in the office. Oh yeah – I started school full time again in the middle of this mayhem.

I was averaging about 4 hours of sleep a night, and at least 2 cups of coffee a day. (I’m up to about 7 hours of sleep a night and hardly any coffee.) I was running on fumes, completely burned out and wanting to give up on everything. I was cruising Southwest’s website when I had a few minutes looking for the cheapest ticket out of here to Florida just so I could catch a break and not have to deal with adulthood and responsibilities for a few minutes.

My Pictures from Germany and Poland are sitting on my computer, completely untouched. The last thing I wanted to do was go through more pictures. Mary hasn’t really heard about my trip – just in passing of the random things that would happen that something here would remind me of.

I am more baffled by the fact that it’s almost October. I honestly can remember New Year’s Eve and how that night went and every detail of how the 1st went when I worked the New Year’s Day Dash run.

But I love fall so it’s okay. I love everything about it – the leaves changing colors, the thunderstorms, the jeans and sweatshirt weather, the brisk wind and being able to sleep with the windows open again. It’s the beauty of living in Wisconsin and being able to get all four seasons – although sometimes we get too much of one. AKA winter.

I’m excited to have October open and to really enjoy the fall weather and leave colors and be able to relax a bit.
