I haven't had the time to respond personally to all of your comments on my last post, (and I may never be able to), but I DO want to tell each and every one of you how much I appreciate your sweet words and encouragement. Just knowing that there are folks out there who've been through what you're going through makes everything seem so much more bearable. I am touched by your thoughtfulness and that you would actually take the time to listen to my whining. The streamlining has begun.
I know that this is just a season, but it seems as though it's been a long one. One thing I have decided to give up is the Blog Talk Radio Show with Melanie. We discussed it and we both feel that we need to focus on other things right now...and though I'll miss doing it and interacting with all of you in the chat, it's just the best thing right now. (Plus, it's a huge time commitment with no pay).
We have a major storm headed our way today, so my internet will be spotty at best. I'm hoping my house doesn't float away or get caught up in a tornado. I hate hurricanes, but I'm one of the lucky ones, because my house isn't on the coast and even if my house is damaged, I won't lose everything like some folks will.
Praying today for the evacuees of Ike and heading out to Friday school with the kids this morning. (It's part of our homeschool coop)I will be teaching the toddlers, starting with the letter "A". It's a very good place to start, I hear. (But you wouldn't BELIEVE the time I've had coming up with things that start with the letter "a" in my house to show them!)
So y'all have a blessed day. Thanks for coming and reading my blog every week. I'm here, not going anywhere - I'm sure in the days to come, I'll be back to my old self again...attempting my hand at humor and writing regularly. Love y'all. Mean it.
