Good-bye isn't Forever . . .
My dearest bloggie friends,
Summer has flown by way too quick and now my kidlets must return to school very soon. This makes me sad.
There are tons of changes they are making. Their beloved elementary school was voted for shutdown and they are starting a new school. They can no longer walk 5 minutes away, but we must carpool over 10 blocks down (40 minutes walk) now. I know they will make twice as many friends and start fresh with new teachers and the principal--I'm trying to be optimistic.
My teen girl is going to middle school and no longer needs to use the bus. The walk is about 15 minutes away. I do worry for her and hope she can find a buddy to walk with.
As for my preschooler, well, he's going to the same school (thank goodness for a bit of familiarity).
I hate to say this, but I need to take my online time and apply it to my family. I feel as if I've lost part of myself here at home as well as my writing. I feel like a leaf tossed in a wild wind.
I have a few scheduled posts if you'd like to come by and visit then:
August 28th: Book Review: The Hidden Sun, by J. Lloyd Morgan
August 31st: Important announcement! :)
I plan to give myself a good month (about the 21st of September) to rehabilitate my meness here at home.
I promise I'll be back soon--maybe sooner. I'd love to throw a party or contest--something--when I get back.
Please don't forget me.
Thanks for your friendships, and have a great month!
PS--yesterday was my girl's birthday!! :)
PPS--you can stalk me on Sundays at Mormon Mommy Writers--I've auto-scheduled it for the month!
