I have been studying. A lot.
We spent the weekend at my mom’s house where everyone but I went bowling. I stayed at the house and studied. I did take a short break from the books to go on a walk. The boys got tired and convinced their Grandma to turn back early. Husband, Dexter the dog, and I kept walking a bit further. It was a nice moment of simple solitude (can a person share a moment of solitude or does that go against the definition?). Either way, it was a moment that revived and grounded me. The wind was just the right degree of chilly and the air slightly salty. Just perfect.
Tomorrow there is an interview with the college. And, of course, more studying. I shall stay focused and grounded and when I feel as though I can not do these things, I will breath in and fill my lungs with the memory of that most perfect of air.
