I am alive, I have just been very busy lately. Classes are in full swing, and therefore the class I am taking this semester is in full swing. It’s a writing class and it meets 3 days a week. It’s more about the technicalities of writing than it is about creative writing. We do have an assignment, due on Monday, to take some of our own writing and revise it – so I am looking forward to that. I wish we could share more of our own stuff with the class and get feedback – now that would be so fun! I am enjoying it, even if it’s not completely what I was looking for. I’m always up for learning how to make my writing better. And getting to know some students better is a plus too.
D and Big D are also taking classes, so our house is abuzz with homework and talk of what went on that day. Big D LOVES it here so far, which surprises me a bit because this is a liberal arts school and the last place was a technical college – which are two very different types of learning. It also surprises me that he loves it because, well, I am here. No one wants their mom around when they are trying to be the big man on campus! This doesn’t seem to bother him either, and I even ran into him one day on the sidewalk and he actually walked with me and talked to me! He’s also stopped in to say hi a bunch of times. WOW!
D has been away for the last 2 days for a work function, and I miss her so much! She comes back tomorrow and I cannot wait to kiss her all over her little face! I miss going to bed and waking up with her too. There’s nothing better than a nice warm hug and kiss when you wake up in the morning. Kissing her pillow does not have the same effect. You know you have a really great relationship when a) the other person can go away for a few days and you have zero feeling that they will be cheating while they are there, and b) you miss them like crazy and can’t wait to see them again. I love my wife so much! She is my best friend, lover and just overall rock of my life! I would be so lost without her!
On a completely different subject, the weather has begun to change here and it’s making me long to do some creative writing. I need ideas! If anyone is willing, I would love you to give me a word or an idea in the comments and I will write a story around it and post it here. I will try to keep it short 😉 * If you could help me out, I would really appreciate it!
*I did this before with my story The Truth, but I think I went on for too many posts and people got bored. I am still working on this story and hope to publish it someday.
** Sorry for jumping topics so much! My brain is not functioning properly on this Friday the 13th afternoon!
