WHEN IT’S TIME TO LIGHTEN THE LOAD

WHEN IT’S TIME TO LIGHTEN THE LOAD

I had this post all written out in my head and yet another catastrophe has arisen! Someone always needs something. What next? It has been two days since I sat down at my laptop and opened up WordPress. Yep! And that’s not like me. I don’t remember ever being this busy at this time of year before.

So much to do and so little time it seems. And of course I am waaaay behind. You wanta list? I can give you a list…

  • Andrew’s FASFA – This should have been done last month and yes, I know he should be doing this, but it’s like pulling teeth. I wonder if I could pay someone to do this for me. Hmmm? Maybe I could pay Andrew. I know he could use some extra money since I just checked his bank account to see how much I needed to add to it so he can pay his deposit on the house he and his roommates are relocating to in July. Soooo…there is a $152 deduction from his account to the Troy bookstore. Once again he did not turn in the book he rented last semester on time – actually, not at all – so they deducted the total from his account! You would think he would have learned the first time. ;(
  • Colorguard – It’s that time of year. New colorguard for WHS needs to be measured and I get elected. (Thank you H.) It would be nice if they could all show up for the meeting I called and sent umpteen dozen emails out reminding them of. Two were no-shows so now I have to make special plans to be back in DFS – an hour away from me – for them. Can’t depend on them to send me measurements because they don’t know what end of the tape measure is what and have no idea where their waist is on their body.
  • Pillows – I have 22 pillow covers to make plus a few more to pick up next week to make by the end of the month. No wonder I have no time to write – but it helps to pay the bills! And speaking of writing…
  • Write on my Alaska book and on ‘What Line’ – You notice what gets pushed down to the bottom of the list? 😦 The one thing I really want to be doing. The Alaska book is going smoothly and I am trying to get ‘What Line’ back up to speed. Having to rewrite all those chapters I lost is not a fun thing to do. This story may take a different turn in the process! I would love to have the majority of this knocked out in a few months.

So the reason I’m telling you all this – besides I really need to vent now – is because I am notifying you – my readers – you may not be hearing a lot from me in the next few months. Of course those first few items on my list will get accomplished in the next couple of weeks, but the writing will take longer.

I’m not leaving completely hanging though. I’ll be re-blogging some interesting posts and I’ll try to check in with an original post once or twice a week if possible. I’m just a notification away if you comment and I’ll keep up with that weekly.

Oh, I could post short little posts here as I do on Facebook, but I don’t want to treat my blog as just another Facebook page. It’s more important to me than that.

Stop by my author Facebook page to stay up to date on the happenings of my Alaska book and ‘What Line’. LIKE the page because you still have time to get in on the drawing for the $25 Amazon gift card. LIKE and SHARE with your friends and that gift card could be yours more quickly!

Now I have to go take care of those notifications over there that have been adding up and get to work shortening my to-do list! Please hang around!

IF YOU BUILD IT THEY WILL COME!

IF YOU BUILD IT THEY WILL COME!

Thank you – thank you for the great response to #REBLOGWEDNESDAY! It has been a little overwhelming to say the least. I promised you a page when I received the first ten comments with links for your re-blogs and here is the link to that page! REBLOGWEDNESDAY PARTICIPANT RE-BLOGS

If you are a new reader and don’t have any idea what is creating this re-blog frenzy I’ve added plenty of links to show you the way. You can click on any and find out what all this fuss is about or click on that re-blog picture in my sidebar to your right.

Please note that your name/title of your blog appears centered above your entries and highlighted with a link to your blog. I’m just going with what I see posted with your submissions so if you would like for your title to appear differently please comment below and I will do what I can to change it. Check all your links out and make sure they are going to the right doorstep. Let me know of any problems. I may need to do a little tweaking. If I missed your comment with your link please get in touch and point that out. I’ll revise and include you.

Also, you may notice if you don’t have a little blurb to introduce your re-blog. This is because you didn’t leave one for me. I wish I had one, but I don’t have the time to check out all the links and add one myself. I’m going to try to make this a little easier for you and me both. When you submit your link in the comments on the  #REBLOGWEDNESDAY page please do it in this order.

  1. My re-blog for (date)
  2. Add your own little blurb (make this short please) to introduce your post from (insert authors name)
  3. Add the link to the re-blog on your page, so clicks will revert to your page announcing the re-blog

And that’s all I need! This will make it easier for me to copy and paste your info into another page and to separate the re-blogs from some who are only commenting.

I have had a lot of responses from twitter and other social media saying “I’m in!” but if you don’t post your link on the #REBLOGWEDNESDAY or YOUR VERY OWN REBLOG PAGE  I don’t know where to find you. 😦

Looks like Jerry is in the number one spot with three re-blogs so far. Two more and he will have his own page! Way to go Wagintailsrv! Keep those re-blogs coming guys!

You can easily find the #REBLOGWEDNESDAY PARTICIPANT RE-BLOG PAGE under that tab under my header picture labeled #REBLOGWEDNESDAY.

Please feel free to add the link to #REBLOGWEDNESDAY PARTICIPANT RE-BLOGS in your sidebar or to your signature on any post. Then all your readers will have instant access to all your re-blogs in one place and it will be even better when you have YOUR VERY OWN REBLOG PAGE!

Thanks again to all who have participated in this ongoing event.
