If it seems that I have been absent from my blog lately, it is because life got in the way. The only reason that Dear Jane blocks are popping up is that they were finished long ago. The end of the year rush is in full swing at school. With three full weeks left in the year, we have already taken the end of course exam and covered all the required curriculum for AP. Those both needed weekend review sessions which left me ready for the weekend on Tuesday. Last week I flew up to Atlanta to visit with Mom and was able to go with her to meet with the oncologist. It was the second time I had missed school in two weeks which is never a popular choice when exams are near. So if it seems that I am noticeably absent from my own challenge, bear with me for just a bit longer while I dig myself out and search for the light at the end of the tunnel.
