One week of dental hygiene school is now behind me. I thought I was ready. To a certain extent, I was, but wow - this is even harder than I expected. The class is intense - think of it as anatomy and physiology on steroids. The pace is frantic. The stress is massive. I'm still reeling from this week, preparing for my first test (Monday) followed immediately by my second test (lab, on Tuesday), and trying to figure out how to balance full-time school with almost full-time work and still have a life somewhere in there.
Thank goodness for blogging! I'm so glad I have an outlet. I can talk about school, or I can avoid the topic altogether...which is probably what I'll do the most, since it consumes pretty much every waking moment. Sometimes I just want a break from it. I've been so scattered with my blogging lately, but I promise, I am working to get it all together.
Right now, my major focus is going to be on consistency with two things: Working with Delight on Mondays (all about being a Christian working mom) and Faith Lived Out on Fridays. I've dabbled with having a second blog called Faith Lived Out, but juggling two blogs with everything else is too much, so I'm combining them by making it a weekly feature on this blog. More so now than ever, I feel like I'm focusing in on exactly who I am and what I want to share when it comes to blogging, and I can't wait to bring it all into my blog.
On that note: During the craziness of my summer class, I'm looking for guest bloggers for Working with Delight. If you're a Christian working mom and you'd like to guest post, please drop me an email at amandablogs79(at)yahoo(dot)com. You can write on any topic you choose related to being a CWM - how you balance it all, time saving tips, the best advice you've received, a devotional, books or other resources that have helped you out, etc. I need guest posts for August 1st and August 8th. I have a great guest post lined up for next week - I can't wait!
