still here :-)

Thought I should drop a line to the few of you who may think I've fallen off the face of the Earth. I'm still here. Actually, Ryan and I are in Charlotte, NC for the weekend. He is at a seminar and I am relaxing in the hotel. It's a beautiful hotel and I have enjoyed most of my day. I finished up three classes. I earned my Bachelors degree in Natural Healing and I am working toward my Doctorate. After doing some course work I went to shower, thinking I'd go down for lunch. Well there is no hair dryer. I also forgot to bring any underwear! LOL. So I showered and scrubbed my undies with bar soap and rinsed them out and went to dry them with the hair dryer....yeah that's right, no dryer. I hung them in a sunny spot to dry. Walking bo legged I ordered a pizza from room service. I briefly reflected on how few people in the world have the luxury of hair driers and washing machines.
I worked on the classes I'm teaching for our home school co-op. I am teaching two nutrition classes. I have discovered I hate teaching! LOL. Really, last time for me.
The kids are being watched by my Mom and Dad while we are gone and I miss them terribly. They are all busy with different things. Noah and Simon are on the middle school baseball team. Adam and Manny are on the middle school soccer team. Noah and Adam just finished the school play. They are taking guitar lessons as well, though we had to put them on hold for a few weeks. Beniam is playing indoor soccer. Outdoor Spring soccer begins for Mercy and Beniam in two weeks. Yep! I'm busy. But I LOVE my life.
I'll try to get back into the swing of blogging.
Until then....

I saw you commented on my blog a while ago. A bachelor's in Natural Healing - fascinating. I was thinking of how underwear itself is a luxury in some places - when my girls came home my daughter wanted to mail some back to Ethiopia for a family member.
