I seriously need your help...

Between homeschooling, caring for my mother, running our family business, and my design business, I'm finding myself a tad bit overextended. My blog is seriously neglected and I'm starting to wonder if I'll ever find the time (or energy) to sit and write a post that doesn't include youtube or my design blog's newest header.

So this is what I'm going to try -- a schedule based very loosely on topics I like and enjoy - along with some of my more serious postings when I can fit them in. (which will be often) I spend my days living life, listening to the hilarious things that come out of my kid's mouths, and then when I sit down to write, I have amnesia. I can't remember a thing that happened during the day. Only that I'm tired. That's pretty much it. Oh, and the fact that this week? "Aunt Flo" came for a visit - and she's been kicking my behind. And my back. Not to mention giving me an ache in the side.

But I digress...I want to write more. I have a need to write more. And I'm sure it will get done. Someday. This next week is going to be pretty hectic. Here's a rundown:

~On Sunday 4/20, Church - I'm the Nursery Director and (gasp!) have duty in the morning service. I'm singing Sunday night and for once, I don't have a song picked out yet. I usually try to rehearse through the week on one, but this time I have had more than one song in my heart and I'm having an impossible time choosing. My husband plays the piano beautifully(although not for our church) and I'm trying to cajole him into playing for me so I don't have to sing with "canned music" (a tape).

~On Monday 4/21, the Bloggy Carnival starts. I've got something to give away for that, so stay tuned...more on Monday.

~On Tuesday 4/22, I am working on a post rightthisveryminute for Tuesday about my cat. Yes, my cat. Did you know there are some serious life lessons you can learn from a cat? It's true. You just wait. You'll see I'm right. Seriously.

~On Wednesday 4/23, Wordless Wednesday and Works for Me Wednesday - and maybe a real live post!

~On Thursday 4/24, Cleaning house and packing for business trip. I don't know about you, but I cannot stand to have a dirty house to come home to. We are going to New Orleans and are staying here. Our hotel room better have a bathtub. Oh, and this weekend just so happens to be the New Orleans Jazz Fest. Famous people everywhere, rubbing shoulders with fellow musicians...what? You didn't know I was a musician? Does singing off-key in the shower count? 'Cause if it does, then I am.

~On Friday 4/25, I am leaving on a business trip, BUT - the Frugal Cooking Carnival is coming up at Owlhaven. Get your recipes ready and head over there with your most frugal and money saving recipes and cooking tips.

~On Saturday 4/26, I will be soaking up the sights and sounds of New Orleans, but I will try to post something from the hotel if I can. No promises - I have an older laptop and the wifi is a little bit cranky sometimes. I'll take pictures and bring them back for you, deal?

As you can see, lots going on personally, not much going on blog-wise. It's like the old saying goes, "Don't hang your hat higher than you can reach." I am learning that I can only do so much with the time I am given. I am intent on making every minute count in the areas that are important to me. My Lord, my husband, my family, my church and then finally, my sweet faithful friends on the internet.

So, here's the thing I need your help on. I'd like to do some tutorials on here. There are only a few things I know anything about (so true) and so I need your help picking what you'd like to see more of by voting below. I didn't include cooking because, although I love to cook and I am pretty danged good at it (if I do say so myself), my kitchen has horrible lighting and the photos never turn out. (Honestly - I tried to do a tutorial on how I made the Texas Style BLTs and the photos were horrid.)

Well, I voted :-) I totally understand your "dilemma"--I would like to blog more but life seems to get in the way more often than not. I am looking forward to Tuesday's post about cats. Cats are so much fun and I know your cat is super smart because if I recall correctly, your cat picked me as a winner when I got my new blog header--which I totally love!

I totally understand not having enough time to do everything you want to do and having to prioritize. To me, that's wisdom.

Anyway, I just voted for the HTML tutorial, Karen.

I vote for sewing tutorials.

I'm jealous of the NOLA trip--especially with the festival going on! NOLA is one of our favorite places. LOVE IT.

Wow! Looks like you have a busy week ahead. I forgot about the bloggy giveaway carnival this week already! Thanks for the reminder!
