I missed April entirely, it seems.

I've been meaning to write an update-y post for a while now, but have been dragging my feet for many reasons, but I'm here now.

I did not get into any of the three schools I applied to. I'm feeling pretty okay about this, and Steve and I have decided to stay in Columbia for one more year while we figure out the next part of the plan. Possible plan elements include: reapplying, opening a restaurant, and... well those are the big ones. In the meantime, I will continue to work for the literary magazine at Mizzou and return to my novel (a work in progress first mentioned on this blog three years ago, but in the works long before that).

Steve and the girls just got back from a trip to Massachusetts for Amanda's wedding (congratulations!) and we're finishing up the school year. Today is my last day of teaching at Mizzou, although hopefully not my last day of teaching ever. (Oh yeah, applying to teach at community colleges is also potentially on the future agenda.)

The chronology of this post should tell you a little about how focused I am right now, but there will be more to come. Sooner than later I should think.

Yikes, I'm sorry you didn't get into any of your schools, but I am way happy that you'll be around for another year!
