Scheduling a Gift

Last year at this time my husband requested more time with me so I went to a Monday, Wednesday, Friday and sometimes weekends blogging schedule in an effort to free up some of myself for him. It was one of his birthday gifts, and it worked out really well. I didn't always begin my day at the desk, and we both enjoyed that little holiday. He felt pampered and while I did miss being right on top of things here, I felt it was a small price to pay to make him smile so often!

I'm doing the same thing this summer. I hope I don't disappoint or offend anyone, but we really need some extra time to get our lives back to normal. We had an uproarious (is that a word?) winter, with lots of stressful moments and we just need to find a way back to living the way we did "before"... Understand? I hope you do.

Starting on April 1st I'm going to be here, but less frequently. I'll still try and pop around and visit with everyone, and will check emails and all but I just won't do it every day.

We've got spring tilling, and planting, as well as summer mowing and every other thing that comes with living on a farm looming on the horizon. I'm hoping to find time between chores to dance in the moonlight with hubby, to chase fireflies at midnight and, most of all, to rediscover the silly moments that came so easily before this winter's trials roared into our lives.

And you know what? I hope you do the same...take time to smelll the roses, chase your dreams and dance with the one who makes your heart sing. I think it's important, and I hope you do, too.

Happy Saturday!

I agree - blogging takes time and I think it's sweet you're making your husband and family a priority. Life is too hectic so think it's wonderful you are cutting back. As you know, I don't blog everyday.

Enjoy your Sunday!

Good for you!

Blogging IS a real time sucker.
