So quiet around here lately! I know I don't post much, but I'm an expert lurker, so I have missed reading what is up with everyone.
As for me, weight has been up and down (and up, and down...) since the fall, so at least I have not gained. My mother has, in that time, lost nearly 70 pounds, though - so I'm really trying to use her example to motivate me into action. At the very least, I can no longer blame my weight on genetics, right?!
The stress of life in grad school has been really getting to me, though. I have been debating taking a year off and applying to other programs, as mine is not currently APA accredited and every time it looks like we can apply again, something happens that delays the process - and I had truly believed it would be accredited before I graduate when I enrolled. On top of that, budgetary constraints at the University - and at the local school districts who often contract with our department - have made it increasingly difficult to secure GA funding, and for some reason that I can't wrap my mind around, I was not granted any work study this year (even with an Expected Family Contribution of literally ZERO dollars)... so I'm working more outside the home, spending more time away from my toddler... I'm sure many of you know the drill.
I hope to hear some updates from others, and I do hope you all are well. Happy Easter!
