Something Had to GiveBy
So maybe you noticed a bit of an absence from me online the last two months…
…or maybe not…
…either way, I am here and have been working behind the scenes, but had to take a break from blogging.
Without sharing ALL the good, bad and the ugly details of my life…because they would bore you to tears…let me just say a few changes in my life made it such that a break was necessary. You see, back in October, my daughter, son-in-law and two adorable sons came to live with us. They moved here to Calgary and are STILL waiting for their home to be sold. So we moved all the rooms around to accommodate 4 more people and started working out a new family schedule.
THEN I accepted a part time job with my sister which pinched my time even more.
THEN my daughter accepted a full-time temporary position and with my son-in-law working as well, that left me as full-time babysitter. THAT was the straw really. I decided I needed to embrace all the changes in our life and just go with the flow for awhile. So some things had to be put on hold while I dedicated my days and evenings to my little grandsons. They won’t stay this little and precious very long and I don’t want to miss it – especially when I am so blessed to have them right here at my side for awhile!
I feel with January here, and I’m no longer watching the boys every minute, I can get back to blogging. My goal is two posts a week. The only real crimp in this plan is the fact I received a new laptop and camera for Christmas. As exciting as that sounds, and it really is exciting, new technology and updated programs are huge obstacles for me! It takes me 3 times longer to do anything these days as I figure out all the new technical stuff! Ugh!! But on the bright side, I’m hoping the photographs of the cards and projects I share will be more detailed and clear – not now perhaps, but soon! Fingers crossed!!
