I am alive and well but also overwhelmed and exhausted with the beginning of a new school year. This is not a unique year. It happens to me every year. I have not been able to keep up with any blogs except for a peek here and there. With the Olympics starting (which I am really looking forward to watching), I probably will only have time for two maybe three posts a week (mostly on the weekends) for the next couple of weeks. After that, life should return to normal.
