What Have You Been Up To?

Lots and lots of things seem to be begging for attention right now and I would have a list as long as my arm if I were to answer my own question. I actually think the list would be longer than my arm, because it's not very long.

I am slowly working on a little life update, but have not finished it. I have had feelings of great shame when I think how long it's been since I've posted, especially since my Pastor told me to get busy and post. I decided to just do it and post.
The above photo shows what has been taking up a lot of my time the last little while and a great majority of it this last week. I have a history essay exam on Friday and have my work cut out for me. My last essay was on Ancient Greece and it was alive for me, thus it stayed in my memory for the test. This time it's on the Roman Republic, Roman Empire, and early Europe and I'm struggling. I don't know why, but it's not alive for me the way Greece was and it's taking a lot of extra effort to pound all the places and people into my mind. One consolation is that I LOVE this class and think in the end with a lot of mental elbow grease it'll come out ok.
Hitting the books again,

Good luck on your essay!
We received your parcel in the mail today, what a great surprise!! Thank you so much. Carson's outfit is so cute, and my girls ate almost ALL the candy today while sporting their new hair ties :) We really appreciate it.

Dear One, Your writing, reading, and general learning skills have always been a joy to me. I KNOW you will do well. I will pray the spirit of remembrance to rest upon you in your time of need. Father will help pull those facts you have stored away come forth. I love you and am proud of you. Hugs, Mom

Sounds like someone may be a classicist.(?!)

Well, Mark, I'll certainly be something after writing about the Fall of the Roman Empire in the wrong question. I don't think I will be calling it a classicist either. I wonder how much they count against you for a few misplaced sentances?

Thank you for you thoughts. They mean a lot. :)
