My life is changing, and It. Is. Awesome!
Which is saying a lot, since I take longer to process change than most!
Since we last spoke I’ve taken a last minute bus ride, 6 hours away, with the best theatre troupe there is, as they got called up to UIL Regionals at the last minute.
Told them to Break a Leg
And come back home!
They made Alternates to State, which is 12th in the State, which is AWESOME!!
Then I went to a concert with some friends
Then I went on a work trip AND crossed an item off my bucket list! My colleague was kind enough to schedule in a little extra time so I could play in the Atlantic Ocean, and now, I have been in both the Pacific and the Atlantic, and you know how I love crossing items off my bucket list!
I have worked, mailed graduation announcements, oh – did I tell you that Mr. T made the college cheer team?!?
So proud of this kid!! The coach loves him and I’m about to go return and buy different items to decorate the signing table because he gets to participate at the signing celebration at school!
This also meant that we looked at scholarship and grant money and do we live on campus or at home… there were 2 weeks where the answer was different every time you asked me! In the end, we can maximize the financial money by him living at home Freshman year and then on campus Sophomore year… so as of today, that’s the plan!
I’m getting ready for graduation – but first, they have Prom tomorrow. Today was Senior Skip Day and someone asked “Is Mr. T participating?” and I was like “He better!” Senior Skip Day is a time-honored tradition!
And, now to the point. You remember my word of the year, right? FUTURE
So far, this has been a GREAT year, and I know it will only get better; however, I have higher priorities than blogging right now. For me, the time is right to stop updating my blog. But never fear, you can still find me on Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest! kateandmrt is my handle on most of those, (there should be links to the right) and I’ll still be around, reading your blogs when I can, but for now, I’m halting my own blog.
And it is very bitter sweet. I’ve loved interacting with y’all and we’ve made some great memories and I will miss sharing, often over-sharing, every last detail with you, but it is time for me to focus on other priorities and my Future. What ever that may be!
I’ll leave you with the wise words from Abraham Lincoln:

You bet I will be following you on instagram! I wish you happiness in your pursuit of life and wish Mr T enjoy his Freshman year and more! Freshman year will be awesome and I am sure he will love it. Love your last quote! Love it totally!
Thank you so much Christy! 🙂
It’s the end of an era. I will miss reading your stories, but I’ll catch up with you around the interwebs.
yeah, you won’t be rid of me just yet! 🙂
Good thing. I’ve become rather attached to my Texas connection. 😉
Love to see your smiling faces … And hope to see it again as an other chapter of your life unfolds in a new way Kate 💕💕
Thank you Val!
Congrats, Good Luck and I’ll see you on FB!
Thank you Lisa!!
Good luck Kate to you and Mr T. This year has been pretty full on for me too and I find I no longer have the motivation to blog as much as I use to. I’ll miss your posts though they always made me laugh. xxx
Thank you so much for those great words! I find myself still going “I need to blog this”, but like you, I was finding the actual motivation diminishing as I was having too much fun participating!
Congratulations to your son for making the college cheer team! I am not on Pinterest or Instagram. Will you still be on MFP?
I will!! and I’ll still be reading your blogs… I just can’t make time to type up one of my own currently!! 😀
Nooooooooooo, now I’m going to have to actually check Instagram! LOL. Well, I’m happy for you that things are going so well and you’re getting another year out of Mr. T. at home 🙂 Enjoy your busy break!
I’m really happy to have him for another year at home, too! And then I’m juts as happy he’ll go off to have the full college experience!
or, I am losing my mind… it’s all kinda the same at this point!! 😀
Have fun . . . as the future unfolds before ya!
Thank you Nancy!!
Awww. I’ll miss your posts here Kate! But hey, there is a time for everything… the good part is that I know you’ll enjoy your life 💕💖💓💞
Thank you V!! I appreciate the kind words and you are right, I know I’ll enjoy this time in my life, too!
Congratulations all round, Kate. What a good story to tell. Love the happy photos. 🙂
Thank you so much! I’m glad I have such happy photos to pick from!!
That is wonderful news for you Kate (and Mr T) but I want to pout because you’re leaving us. May the future have much more happiness and good things in store for you and yours. ❤
Thank you so much Paul, it is much appreciated!!!
This makes me equal parts sad and happy. I am definitely going to have to improve my IG commenting skills and Facebook and Twitter. 🙂 I will miss your blog posts but am excited for your future- you and Mr. T!!!
Thank you so much Fallon! I’ll just be forcing you to respond elsewhere cause you aren’t getting rid of me yet! 😅
I’ll still bug ya with emails and maybe a text here and there! I’m totally stoked for you and T, though. What an awesome time in your lives!
I would be upset if you didn’t!! And thank you, I’m doing my best to enjoy it and help him enjoy it, too!
Oh boo but I do understand this having walked this path myself. I will still see you elsewhere so this makes me happy xx
Oh yes! You can’t get rid of me that easily!! I’m so ready for the baby!! And Monkey is growing so fast!! 💜
Yay for perfect endings abd new beginnings! So happy for you. And I can’t be too sad about the blog going dark because we are connected in other places. 😉
I’m actually really excited for this new beginning! Normally I just turn the page and move on, but I’m having fun filling these pages as I go!! And yes, I have to keep track of your travels!!
Happy for all the fun things that are exciting you.
No more blog?
I hope we will manage to keep up.
All the best Kate.
Thank you Larry! I’m an all or nothing gal, and I just wasn’t doing my blog justice, and that’s not fair. But we’ll be in touch – I’m like an ink stain, it’s hard to totally get rid of me!
I hear you Kate. I appreciate your sincerity (you know that’s a compliment from me). I feel like saw your whole ark – from beginning to end. Anyway, I’m glad you won’t be totally going away!
Love that quote! Best of luck! I shall miss your posts as I often find them inspiring…
I found that quote very appropriate today – and thank you Ronit!! I appreciate all of your support over the years!
