A Quiet, Normal, Not Busy Life

I've forgotten how difficult it can be to balance full-time work and school. Throw trying to have a decent home life and some family time in there. Oh and let's not forget the holidays too. Needless to say, I've been busy. I'm looking forward to this Saturday because it means I'm done with weird work schedules and brain-melting classes. It means I'm free. At least until January 9th when it all fires up again. Whose brilliant idea was it to go back to school anyway? Oh right. Mine.

I have a very large backlog of photos being held in the coffers of my external hard drive. Things from Portland, Colorado, Yosemite and Tahoe. I was supposed to be working this morning for a couple of hours before I head off to class all day, but I blew it off. I needed an hour or so of no-cares-in-the-world photo time. I perused Flickr, I edited a 35mm roll from Portland (fun little Sauvie Island with Elizabeth and a wonderful day on the coast with Vanessa), and I am now posting a little something here. It's been too long. I miss my cameras and my Flickr time. I miss my Portland photo friends. I miss Oregon.

My three weeks before January 9th will surely be overloaded with Christmas stuff, but in that space, I'm going to try to shoot some photos, try to post here, try to knit, try to just remember what it's like to have a quiet, normal, not busy life. I hope the same for you.

Christmas is normally a crazy busy time, but yours sounds SUPER CRAZY busy! I hope you have a wonderful break this Christmas, and get to enjoy lots of downtime and time with family and friends.

Merry Christmas!
