So, 18 hours have just passed. Mathias woke up and then it was show time. I gave myself ten minutes for a post and got five.
What did I expect, really? That this would be simple? That the MBA and the twins and looking for work and keeping my marriage healthy and getting in some exercise plus visiting friends and family- did I think it would all fall into place? And sleep, did I think I would get sleep?
A few weeks after my last final and I look back at a blur of activity. Sick boys, doctor visits, coffee dates, consulting work, new courses started- each a step forward but it is hard to see balance.
So, I will build the routine back up, seek and develop balance, and get back into writing my posts. This MBA journey is more about the self than the material. But be warned, there is not instruction manual enclosed.
