Here's the deal: the internet is off at my house, almost entirely for the above reasons. And why does that matter to a stay home mom? Partly because my children don't need my lazy butt, computer addicted example. Partly because housework wasn't getting done any way I sliced it. And partly because I'm opening the grad school door again.
I gotta tell ya, it's scaring the crap outta me. Seriously. This time I'll have to take the GRE (but that's okay, because I love tests). This time it's a state school, two hours away, and I'm not sure they'll let me do this correspondence - the woman I'm supposed too talk to was on maternity leave till this week. And the degree? Professional Writing.
Doesn't that sound exciting? It does, I know. But the application requires 50 consecutive pages of fiction or creative non-fiction. I write short stuff. This is freaking me out. Oh, that and the paying for it. And the deadline for applying for the spring semester is mid-November.
So I should probably break from this (even though I miss and love you all so!), and figure out what to write. Any ideas are greatly appreciated.
Until I write again ...
