It has been awile

I guess I realize more and more that being a single mom left almost no time for me to update my blog. Between holding a full-time job, taking pre-requisite classes (I am now accepted into a Master's Nursing program at UCLA) and trying to be the best mom I can be for my boys leaves me no time for anything else - not to mention the three knee surgeries I have had since December which took away mine main de-stresser - basketball.
I want to be better at keeping memories of my boys growing up as time flies by. As I was looking at the old pictures of the boys on my Facebook account it is hard for me to believe that I now have a kindergartener and a second grader! I feel that I did not document their lives enough over the past few years, I don't remember the funny things they used to say a couple of years ago as all of it was drowned out by the worries of everyday life. I want to say that I will be better at it, but as I am about to embark on the journey of graduate school I get more worried the closer it gets about the time management, mainly wanting to make sure that my boys get the most attention they want and need. I know I can do it. It will be a tougher couple of years but I see the bright light at the end of the tunnel and it justifies all the sacrifices on my end. And if it means staying up until wee hours in the morning to study just to be able to read books and help my children with their homework - in my mind it is well worth it.
The boys have been gone since the beginning of July and I miss them terribly. I will get them back in a little over a week and I can hardly wait!
