Checking In!

Poor, poor neglected blog. I wanted to stop by and check in quickly to state the obvious - I haven't been blogging lately. Nothing big going on, just a newly busy schedule and less time.

I recently started a new job at a local college where I am working in the library as a technician. The hours work really well for the boys' schedules - I'm done by 3:00 3 days a week and then the other two days I get out at 2:00 and 1:00, for a total of 32 hours a week. And most importantly, summers off. Just right!

Speaking of which, school has started which means a lot of running around for band, football and other activities. I miss summer and its lack of routine and lack of schedules already!

On top of all of that, I'm trying very hard to get back into my workout routine. I suddenly realized that it has been TWO YEARS since I've worked out on a regular basis!

Bottom line - I need to concentrate on getting myself into a regular routine and blogging just doesn't fit in right now. Once I can trust myself that I'm sticking to the workout routine and have a handle on the rest, I hope to come back. As much as I enjoy blogging, I have to admit it's nice - especially on really busy nights - to simply sit down and eat instead of messing with photos!

Hope to be back soon...............................

On this day in....
2006: Mmm...Minestrone


  1. Take care of yourself and we will still be here when you get back!

    PS I know how you feel with taking pictures and eating dinner!

  2. I'll miss the blog - you do a great job. But I wish you all the best in the new school year! Congratulations on the new job! I hope I have the schedule you do when kids enter into my life - sounds like a perfect situation.

  3. Joe - I always think of you when I slack off on the blog - you are so good at keeping up with it even when you're busy! :) I have to visit your blog and see how the house stuff is going. Hope all is going well.

    Sandy - Thanks. Hopefully it won't take me too long to get my act together. I just want to make sure blogging stays fun and doesn't become a chore. Sometimes a break is refreshing.

  4. same here alysha...i just got a work in school, wish i had more time doing stuff with my blog *sighs*

  5. Eliza - Hope you find more time soon.

    Technically, I could make the time, but I need to wrestle with my working out issues and get a routine going first. I also need to get my housework routine back in order - the house is a mess and I'm not happy about it. Once I can trust myself to stay in a routine with those two things, I'll allow time for blogging.

    But even then it's going to be hard. I'm so tired at the end of the day (I only work until 3:00, but then I run the kids around all night), I don't feel much like writing. But I think once I have a workable routine down, that will change.

  6. Hope to see you back soon. Enjoy the blog.

  7. Thanks Jacky. :)

  8. I just started reading your blog, right before this brief hiatus. I will keep coming back.

    Good Luck with the new schedule!
