I’m working on a few changes on the blog here, so you might notice a couple of kinks now and then. With over 1200 posts even I’m having trouble finding some things that I want to go back and reference – even with the labels and the search tools. And since I primarily use this as an online journal / reference for me and for my family, then I think it will be nice to have it a bit more organized.
Call it my back-to-school organization mode – the mode required by all parents at this time of the year in order to get through the day. Hyper-organization (backpack-packing, snack readying, note reading-signing-returning, homework, violin, aerial arts, soccer practice, lunch-making, epi-pen carrying, appropriate shoe wearing, correct thickness of jacket donning, after-school shuffling, all-encompassing micro-management of an eight-year-old) kind of mode.
Two other things going on right now – some needed contractor jobs on the house, and a bit more tackling of the wishlist this fall – and of course, the onset of the holiday season before we know it. Last year’s season was the most hectic on record, so I’ve made a concerted effort to spread the joy throughout the year, and will continue to take it down a notch. Maybe not take it down so much as finish it earlier.
So as I organize everything else, I’ll be doing the same here. Stay tuned for a new header (although I love this one, it’s certainly springy). More links to interesting things, and hopefully some interesting projects, a few great recipes and the requisite kid photos that keep the grandparents interested.
Thanks for spending a few moments of each day here. I love hearing from you – the comments, and the more personal emails. The best moments happen on the top floor – whether it’s in the house, or just in my own random, wandering mind. And the view’s not too bad either.
