Countdown Continues

This weekend is a bit of a rush for me.  I am on call at the birth center and trying to finish my projects for school.  I have just over a week before we leave for Nairobi – two weeks of classes and I will need to take all my finals early. All my papers need to be completed early. All my presentations need to be completed early.

Unfortunately, I cannot keep my focus on papers.  My husband and children will be returning from their “epic journey” in just a few days.  All my attention is on them.  I cannot keep them out of my thoughts.  I struggle to stay interested in my school work. But I must finish this work so I have next weekend to enjoy them before I leave.

What a wonderful life that my biggest problem is how excited I am to see my family. If only all the worlds problems were this nice to have.
