Too Busy to Blog

Yes, it’s been a while since I’ve given my blog my undivided attention. That’s been the problem-- putting it on the back burner to attend to other things –like making a living. Excuses, excuses.
My kindergarten teaching stint lasted two weeks before a regular teacher was allowed to be hired.(It’s all about numbers.)Dealing with two ADHD pupils, an autistic child and an angry mother in denial did not start my school year out exactly as I’d planned, but then as a famous writer once wrote --“The best laid plans of mice and men …” Things are back on track now so it’s full steam ahead.
The fact that a water pipe sprung a leak UNDER the cement slab and ruined the carpet in a guest bedroom and the hallway did not help my attitude but then blessings do sometimes come in disguise. I’ve wanted to put down hardwood for a couple of years so this little mishap was the opportune time. No more carpet; bamboo flooring is the ‘wood of the day’. It’s great looking, harder than oak and better for the environment since it keeps growing right back. I just love running my little Swifter over the surface rather than lugging the vacuum from room to room.
With three book marketing venues scheduled, a new book to write, company coming from Alaska for two weeks and a trip to Maine to see our twins, it’s going to be a tight squeeze to be a faithful blogger, but ‘hey’, I’ll do my best. Just pray for me that we don’t have any more geysers!
