Before I get to my post…just wanted to let you all know…

now that I am returning to work full time. I won’t have the time to blog/read blogs in the morning/afternoons.

I most likely will only be able to blog after Dino goes to bed. I may be late in linking up to posts that only start in the morning or responding to and commenting on posts.

I am still here and have tons of posts already scheduled…will just be late to the parties, LOL.


Daddy is getting nervous…for two reasons. He is VERY competitive and in shock that Dino, as wild as he is, is being very gentle and careful with thedaddy nervous    Dino enjoying every moment of family game time.

  1. Karen, will miss you in the morning and was so used to having you online even before I was, but will look forward to seeing you on in the evenings now! Good luck at you first day back and seriously know you are going to have a great year!! 🙂

    • I know…it’s going to be SO HARD for me to wait unitl the end of the day…maybe during the day…but not sure where I’ll even be yet. Perhaps if I get REALLY organized I can afford 30 min in the morning…we shall see. Thanks Janine…I’m scared and excited…and want that first flipping check….I need MONEY! LOL

  2. I am starting back to work part time in a week, so I feel your pain! I am really not sure how I’m going to keep up with everything around the house, much less blog stuff! Good luck to you.

    • I handled it last year…but I was spoiled this summer and blogging most of the morning. I know I get up at 5 and have an hour to exercise and get ready. I am hoping I am not too tired at the end of the night. Good luck and congrats. I don’t see your site I can’t visit and comment 🙁

  3. I totally get it Karen. I won’t ever be a huge blogger because I work full time and I only have so much time to comment on other blogs, write my posts, etc.

    I love that Dino was so careful with the Jenga. Smart boy! I love playing games but Jessi likes to play too and she’s just not at that point where she gets rules and such so it’s sometimes difficult.

    • I really enjoyed blogging as much as I did…I will miss it…it released ideas and tension. If I need to choose between blogging in the morning and exercising, I’m going with exercising.

      I know, I couldn’t believe how good he was with jenga. I hear you Carla…when they don’t get the rules it’s just not worth the frustration and you don’t want them to feel bad.

Would love to read your thoughts
