Wow, it has been a month since I last posted.. Not doin' so good with being a blogger!!! Sometimes, okay maybe most of the time, I try to do too many things at once... I want to squeeze as much time and fun out of everyday that I can, and that can sometimes cause me to get behind.... Anyway, lets see what have I been up to??? The new year has brought about some amazing changes in the Akers' household... I am officially a freshman in college at the ripe old age of 38(ewww, did I just type that?) It has only taken me 18 years to get back and begin to finish my degree in Art Education and this time I will do it.. It is one of the things on my "bucket list", you know the "what you want to do before you kick the bucket list". NO, I am not having a midlife crisis!!! I am way tooo young for a midlife crisis!! I think that it just really sunk in that this life is short and I don't want to keep looking back saying "I should've, I could've, if only I would've". So I WILL be an art teacher one day, just watch me!! BUT to those of you that have relied on me to meet your hairstyling needs I will be practicing that art for some time to come, believe me! Now, lets see what else.... I haven't been doing much creating lately, but I do have some pictures of things I made over the Christmas holiday that need to be posted. I'll try to get that done this weekend. Other happenings in our world.. tornadoes in January, which fortunately went around us on either side (North and South of us), though many in our area weren't as fortunate:o(. The kids have had 2 school days off so far this month, one day for the tornadoes and the other for ice... CrAzY weather!! Ummm..what else.. Lizzie had her first sleep over for her birthday. Nothing like having three 8 and 9 year old girls giggling and carrying on all night.. I was sooooo tired the next day, but they had soooo much fun!! My boys weren't as appreciative of the commotion:o)!! There is sooooo much that has happened this past month and I know that you don't want to read and read and read, so I will stop here... Just wanted to say hey and also let y'all know I'm alive, just crazy busy and enjoying it!!! I'll try to get those pictures posted and maybe I'll actually post again before another month rolls by. Take care!!
