Summer is not quite officially here but the temperatures and end of school say otherwise! And, to the best of my faulty memory’s ability, I seem to recall that things slow down significantly in the blog world when they pick up in the real world with the warm weather. I had a taste of it myself, when I was crazy busy recently with babysitting three young nephews followed by an out-of-town family reunion. The result – not nearly as much time as I usually have to sit at my keyboard with my thinking cap on and the creative juices flowing; not nearly enough time to visit and comment on other people’s blogs.
So this summer I’m going to finally do what I keep saying I might do… blog less often. And because I know some of you (myself included) like things to be predictable, my plan is to stick to a schedule and see how that goes. For now, look for new posts on Mondays and Thursdays. But you are hereby officially warned that I may exercise my woman’s prerogative to change my mind.
Somehow the weeks of summer always seem to fly by for me faster than any other time of year. Is it the same for you?
Anyhoo, this summer I have nothing exciting going on for myself. My teen… well that’s another story. He had college orientation last week. So now there is lots and lots of
nagging and shopping and packing, which I will be involved in since I am still an over-controlling helicopter mom for a couple more months. Then he is heading to Minnesota and Canada to camp in the Boundary Waters with friends. (His over-controlling helicopter mom is trying to block out her vision of flying fishhooks.) So mostly I’ll spend my summer preparing my nest for emptying in mid-August and dreading the long car ride that comes with it.
What about you? Any summer plans? And does summer bring a change to your blog reading or posting schedule?
Postscript: It seems that old emails are once again being sent out from my blog. Just wanted to say something in case you get one, or many, and are wondering. You can read more about the last time this happened here. If anyone has any ideas about how I can fix this PLEASE let me know! Apologies for any confusion, emails you didn’t get in the past, and inundated inboxes:)
