2 years off, to be exact. No biggie. I've had various projects on and off, but it's time to get back to basics. This blog has chronicled my struggle with mental illness along with various other things in my life, and that will remain true. In this blog I will continue to speak truthfully and openly, that is why you see an "adult content" warning on my blog. Sometimes life gets real and I try to stay real right along with it. So welcome back to my reality.
What's happened in the past 2 years? Last I left I was back in church, I was still human, etc. I'm still human, still in church...and living in a different state. Yeah, I typed that. Chris finished his math degree and less than 4 months later we were living in Kentucky. Sometimes life happens very fast. Chris works for Red Bird Christian School, teaching math and science for the 7th and 8th grade. I volunteer at the school and do whatever they ask me to. I've adopted a large number of kids or maybe they've adopted me...either way.
I miss my parents like crazy, but I know we are where we are meant to be and that helps a lot. I've made a lot of new friends up here. I'm trying to wrap my head around this sport with the hoop and the round ball that they play up here...it's strange. I live in quite possibly the prettiest place on earth, right inside the Daniel Boone National Forest. On a clear night I can see every star in the sky, I can hear every frog nearby. I live 30 minutes away from the nearest town. It's 20 minutes from my house to the nearest gas station. I love it. We live on campus at the mission and the kids have friends to hang out with and a safe place to be. Have I mentioned I love it here? Well, I do.
Well, that's my I've been missing forever and now I'm back post...hope you enjoyed it!
