Bury the Bumble Grit

I haven’t been around… not sure who noticed. And no, it isn’t some silly game. I started school this week; two seven-week progressive courses which are essentially fifteen weeks smashed into seven.


I mean, I have a mid-term in two weeks. I am still writing as much as I can but I left the day job at 1 pm Wednesday to go get my textbooks and catch up on some studies.

I guess you could say I am as busy as a bumble bee.

In other news, my area, Bucks County, has some serious murder mystery stuff going on! Four young men went missing last week and there are connections to another young man who is the son of farm owners in the Solebury section of the county.

The ground was dug up with a backhoe where cadaver dogs sniffed out the scent of human remains buried over twelve feet beneath the surface. I cannot imagine the mentality of someone who would go through so much trouble to bury a body that far underground! I won’t go into detail, as you may have already heard the story. I feel sad for the families of these young men.

Finally, I am looking forward to this weekend. Getting caught up on my studies and focus on the end game which is an associate’s degree! I have the grit to pull it off for sure. I have been dragging my ass on finishing school since I started way back in 2001. I was gung ho for a couple years and managed to get 36 credits, but then I had that whole issue with the drugs and drinking and despite getting sober in 2006, still didn’t pursue my goal.

Well, things go the way they go for whatever reason and I am excited to finally be back in the game.

Do you have any goals (long or short-term) you are currently pursuing?

Have a great week! I will try to write something creative once I get caught up on my studies this weekend.

Blessed Be!

  1. Ha, good for you. I’ve thought about trying to incorporate a week’s worth of prompts into one post. Good job.

    As I was taking my dog to the vet this morning I heard about a farm where lots and lots of remains were discovered. Is that the case? So horrible.

    Congratulations on getting back in the game. Best wishes.


    1. Hello… Thank you! Yeah, I haven’t posted in days and I felt like incorporating the some of the weeks prompts so far into one post would lessen my guilt.
      And yes, it is that story. The remains were buried on a farm. I hope like hell at least one of the young men are found alive. This is the kind of stuff I watch on TV. Certainly not something I would expect to happen in the same county that I live and work.
      Thanks on the props! So far so good. 🙂
      Enjoy the rest of your week!
