For me, this blog is my scrapbook. Sure it's public and others read it, but for me it's my scrapbook. It's also a way to share with family who are far away, since most of our family is far away. It's a great way to stay in touch.
I lost my way this summer.
May was one of the most stressful months I've had in a long time. Things are beginning to settle down and I want to get back to posting here. I have less time, so my posts may be extremely short on words and may only be a picture or two. But I want to preserve the memories.
Why am I so busy? Well, just being a homeschooling (or unschooling) mom keeps me pretty busy. Two years ago I went back to work part time, working about 20 hours a week. After about 7 months, I was promoted to Customer Support Assistant Manager and things got busier. In June of this year, I was promoted to Customer Support Manager and things got a little insane. I'm working a lot. Fortunately, our family schedule has been less hectic. That and the fact that I work from home and, other than being on customer support, I can work any time of the day or night. Still, it takes a lot of my time working 60 hours a week. I'm working on getting that down to 40.
I hope to post something most days. We'll see how it goes.
