So glad to be back!

Wow, it’s great to be back from vacation, nothing like laying on beach, soaking up the sun, getting drinks & massages from a guy named…

Oh wait..I didn’t GO on vacation…I just THOUGHT I did.

I am sure I could come up with a bunch of anti-blogging excuses, but the truth is I don’t have any. I just took a break…a lazy, ordinary, boring, didn’t-get-a-darn-thing-done break.
I read a lot of blogs…537 of them to be exact…thank goodness they don’t all update on the same day! Heck, some don’t update at all anymore, but there must of been some goody or tidbit I wanted to save. I have been using Google reader lately, which I love, since the Internet Explorer feed thingy decided to not work anymore.

Especially if you are doing business online, or have a lot to do online…do you schedule time each day? Grab it when you can? Do you follow a cleaning schedule? I tend to be a flybaby as far as scheduling goes. I have my little routines that I follow…I may check my email first thing in the morning, but I make a bargain with myself that I have to have x,y,and z done before I can get online. Silly, huh? I do the same in the afternoon, and in the evening. It helps that I have a phone that lets me chat and recieve email, but I am wondering if a laptop would be a big help. I like the idea of looking up recipes in the kitchen, or being able to go outside and hang out with my boys during the day….any advice/ideas would be SO appreciated!

I decided to make Pioneer Woman’s Marlboro Man Sandwiches last night…there is like a stick of butter in these bad boys, but omg is it ever tasty! Of course my pics weren’t nearly as pretty as hers, so you’ll have to get your pic fix & the recipe there!

I am going to be co-ordinating a crafting page for the Happy Housewives site. I am by no means experienced in every aspect of crafting, but I will have contributors for other crafts, and I hope to add tutorials, links to books & websites, etc…The target date is September 1st!

I have also had a bunch of graphics work lately…I am going to put up a few pics soon, but one of the most fun ones was making a banner and buttons for Crazy Days and Nights…it’s an excellent gossip site, with lots of juicy tidbits. Thanks to everyone who has asked for designs, and sent work my way! I will be putting up a button for design requests soon! I can do blogging stuff, but also business card, label & stationery design, t-shirt designs, personalized graphics for kids rooms, etc..

Ok, off to work on tomorrow’s post! TTFN!!

  1. I’m right there with you. I took a vacation, then took an extra week of doing nothing. Ugh!

    I haven’t been to the housewife page in a few weeks, but sounds interesting what you are doing! I might want to contribute. I have all this craftiness, and no one to share it with. (Actually, I’m just a follower, but someday—someday I’ll actually create something so unique and wonderful that everyone will what a piece of it!!!!!) Haha!

    See you around!

  2. I was so excited for you when I saw that beautiful vacation picture. 😉

    I’m glad you’re back to blogging, even if you didn’t really go anywhere!

  3. OH!!!!

    I can’t wait to check out happy housewife! And a new podcast to listen to yeah! I am getting tired of my favorites.

Comments make me happy!
