Well, it's almost the end of 2017. And to sum up this year I would have to use the word Chaos. Our lives have been flipped upside down in so many ways, some good and some bad, with TONS of changes. Quite honestly, I'm just ready for this year to be OVER!
Instead of dwelling on the past, I am going to look forward to the future.
I have sure missed blogging. I mean, I have missed the old blogging of days gone by where I spilled my guts on a daily basis, shared EVERYTHING our family was doing, made some people laugh, pissed off some people, and really just bared it all.
Our Journey to Excellence blog has seemed to have run its course. The only student I have at home now is Eli and his days are so orderly and ordinary that we really don't have much to share there. My definition of Excellence has changed so much that, really, I am much more concerned with our family just living and being who we are than trying to live up to some subjective definition of Excellence. I don't know if we are Excellent. In fact, I reckon we are far from it. And, honestly, most days we are too pooped to work toward it.
So, I am saying "good-bye" to Journey to Excellence.
But I am saying "hello" again to Taulman Times. Starting in January, if you care to, you can follow us over there. If you don't, that's also fine with me. Let's be honest, when it comes down to it we who blog really do it just for ourselves anyway. And if you really want a daily dose of reality, follow me on Instagram at nikki_taulman.
Esse Quam Videri.
