Update - I'm Alive! :D

Yeah... I'm feeling pretty good. ;)
Hi!  :D Yes - I am still Alive! :)

I hope my readers didn't begin to wonder if I fell off the face of the planet (here to confirm that you are right... I did - JK ;). Actually, I just got really engrossed in living! I also enjoyed an early "Spring Break" with my family of home scholars and another great family of "home scholars." Isn't the freedom of home schooling great? :D

I will keep this short because I am still knee deep in living (:o ~ and LOVING almost every minute of it! ;). I will just tell you that God has been very good to us. :) I'm enjoying life and SO THANKFUL for family and friends. I feel incredibly blessed to live in a beautiful area with wonderful people. I'm so happy that I am totally comfortable swimming with my head down in the water now! (It felt like it would take a miracle for that to happen - but it happened. The learning curve for swimming amazes me!). I'm so thankful for my husband and our amazing children. I love teaching them. I love their resilience and the things they teach me. I love this adventure and journey of motherhood and have come to the beautiful conclusion that part of my duties as mother and homemaker is to read great books! :) Yes, I am reading a ton again; after all, when I read great books, I'm just doing my job! ;)

Till I find the time to get consistent here again...
Corine :D

PS. About that goal I recently set to swim 3 days a week for a month - Since I took off and went out of town for a week I didn't have access to a pool while away. Oh well. I'll just tack on some swim time at the end of the goal! :o The vacation was worth it! :)

  1. I am still learning to be okay with swimming with my face in the water. Hubby got me goggles for Christmas and we were supposed to be going to the gym weekly at least, but that hasn't been happening. I'll have to work on it.

  2. I'm so glad you are enjoying life right now! That makes me happy. :) Great job on improving your swimming skills! You are such a goal oriented person and I love that about you. You are a great example that way. Happy Spring Break!

  3. Yeah! We can learn together!!! :D Seriously, I couldn't stand having my face in the water when I stared swimming about three weeks ago. I have already gone about 7 times and am AMAZED at how much I have improved. I still need to learn how to kick (started working on that today) but at least I'm getting a lot better at breathing.

    PS. A swim cap makes a HUGE difference for me. Without the cap my hair sometimes gets in my mouth or eyes and makes it difficult for me to focus on getting technique down. Maybe when I get more proficient I won't mind swimming without one. :)

    Thanks, Ginger! :D I can't imagine life without goals; they keep me progressing and lovin' life! :)
