I apologize for not following my usual posting schedule this summer. I spent the past couple of months being completely Overcome By Events (I call this problem “OBE” for short, which is helpful because I suffer from it often and using the acronym makes me feel official).
We returned from our nearly month-long tour of the East Coast relatives, during which time we suffered more medical problems than I prefer (including but not limited to two ER visits) and I concluded that traveling for that long is not conducive to good behavior or overall peacefulness. Next year we plan to make a much much much shorter trip but still hope to see everyone. The picture above pretty much captures the month: lots of child wrangling, artistic photo shoots gone awry, kids running off, kids taking dives into concrete, kids needing to go to the bathroom at inopportune moments, and Mama trying to keep her smile on in spite of everything.
Now that we’re home, we’re about to launch into our first official year of homeschooling and I’m also going to attempt to massively revise my novel and keep up with many other obligations and commitments with family, church, and friends. In order to promote less stress (SERENITY NOW!) and maintain my focus and priorities, I decided to take my blog posting schedule down to three posts per week. In weeks with a giveaway, I’ll do an additional post to declare the winner.
With that said, are there any topics or types of posts that you particularly like on A Spirited Mind or would like to see more of this fall? If I’m only going to do three posts a week, they had better be good ones, right?
Thanks for sticking with me through the sporadic posting this summer!
