School and Other Stuff

Dear Mom,

School is going well, and as I figured, it is consuming most of my time. Hence, it’s already February! Haven’t blogged in three weeks, barely do any social media. I feel like a hermit.

Everyone who said I’d love school was right. However, my brain is on overload. Today I’m going to make flash cards to remember all the important lingo that goes with HTML and programming.

The other night when I was in the ER, I watched the nurse inputting info into the hospital system. All I could think of was the person who created that program had to be a Master Geek—and I use that term ‘geek’ in the highest regard of respect—considering how little I know at this point and how long it takes me. I marvel at what goes on behind the scenes.

I was hoping to display a program I’m working on for class as you creative folks might find it fun. Maybe next post.

Ever since school started, I’ve been dreaming in codes.

Needless to say, but I’ll say it anyway, I’ve managed only two weeks of the Mindful Writing Challenge. I was going to sketch daily… uh, that stopped too. I talked about writing an essay a day… errr, well, maybe I wrote five (rough at that). My weekly blog is more like monthly. Blog reading… hmmm, I try. Oh and I had to change my comment thing where you must enter the garbled words to comment because the spammers were bombarding me.

I want to thank Kathy from Oregon Gifts of Comfort and Joy for awarding me, which I may not deserve any longer (perhaps when school is over). Her blog is chock full of all kinds of things.

Sending love to my friend Kim who’s going through a difficult time. And my cousin, Jane.

My friend Michele makes beautiful stars—I had her make me some blue ones for my little Christmas tree (that I put away just a week ago). 

Aren’t they beautiful? Let me know if you’d like some for your tree and I’ll hook you up. You know, Christmas will be here before we know it at the way time is flying by. She makes star jewelry too.

And last, but not least, although I’m sure I’m leaving a bunch of stuff out, but I’ll be attending a spiritual seminar here in St. Louis, Missouri in mid-February. If you’re so inclined, it’s free for guests. The guest speaker, Linda Anderson is an author. The seminar may or may not be your cup of tea, but I’m sure you’d enjoy Linda’s talk.

Hope everyone is healthy and happy! Now back to homework...


  1. Yes, Lynn, you deserve it.

    And I admire you. My brain could not retain one bit of information about html (are those letters in the right order?).

    Give yourself a break. Right now, it sounds like you have a full plate.

  2. I just took my Christmas tree down on Sunday. Dreaming in code would be a nightmare for me. I don't get that stuff. Jabberwocky.

    Seeing as how you've already reached your blog quota for February, I'll check back in March in hopes of seeing that program you've been working on.

  3. Thanks, Lynn, for visiting and commenting on my blog. Now after reading yours I feel extra flattered you shared a few moments with me. You are one busy gal! So glad you are loving what you are doing...sounds tough to me, but sounds like you are up to the challenge. Continued good wishes for this new quest!

  4. Woman, slow down. Your body is going and your mind must be racing with those codes and homework.
    Watch out! You'll become a career student and surpass all of us.

  5. Being back in school is an adjustment, but sounds to me like you're doing fine. Don't sweat the small stuff. Blogville can wait until you have more time.

  6. You really have to prioritize to do what you are doing! I hope you're having a good week, my friend! I'm so proud of you! Hugs!

  7. Wow, Lynn, I admire you for the courage to go to school and learn the HTML stuff! I'm not that techy myself, but learned everything I do know on my own. I'm sure it's much more fun when you actually get a teacher you can ask questions instead of spending a day trying to make stuff work the way it should ;)

    PS: you know me, lOVE the blue stars!

  8. Thanks, Lynn! I've been thinking about you so much, and here you have had this post on here for a week and I am just now visiting you.

    I am glad that you love school, I knew that you would. I am so proud of you. Your Christmas tree stars and other ornaments are very pretty. I'll send you a snail mail letter soon.

  9. You are my hero, going to school and learning code, and still finding time to write on occasion.

  10. How do you find time to do anything? My goodness, lady, you're really pushing it! Good for you. I bet you're exhausted . . . and exhilarated, too. As to the blogging, well, those of us who love you will be happy to wait for the occasional morsel you toss our way. If you write it, I'll read it, even if it is only once a month.


Thanks for commenting. I don't always comment back, but I do appreciate it.
