Here's the problem

Now that we are all settled into our new house I expected to be blogging much more frequently. But here's the problem: two of my mother's employees are gone and I've been filling in to make up for their hours. One had a stroke, and is recovering nicely, but will not be returning to work. Also, my nephew, who works part-time for my mom, broke his wrist in a skiing accident and hasn't picked his hours back up yet. This has left me with very little free time. I'm hoping to work out some sort of a blogging schedule but haven't had a chance yet.

In case you were wondering...or even if you weren't ;)

  3. I was kinda wondering, Mary. I assumed you were still getting settled. I moved three years ago and I'm still getting settled, in fact I have a number of boxes I still haven't unpacked!! (mostly books and decorative items) But I guess that's because the house was/is in such disrepair! I can't see hang pictures on a wall my husband said needs to be ripped out to fix the plumbing!!! It's been fun! I sure hope you had a much better move than us!!!! Our move could be turned into a really good novel.... May be when I'm 55+ and my kids are grown!

  6. I've missed you Mary! Sorry to hear about the medical issues of your mom's employees. You're a good daughter to be picking up the slack1 If you do have time, Jennifer from Crafolic is offering a giveaway on my blog of her new game called Journey's End. Stop by if you're interested or even have a minute to spare! Blessings to you!

  8. I was wondering where you were, Mary - I thought you might be busy with your house move. I hope you're settling in happily.

    I'm trying to fing more time for blogging, too. I've been a bit of a lazy blogger, lately, but, after chatting to Sue, this morning, I feel inspired to put more effort in. It's just lovely to share and be part of a loving community, don't you think?

    It's nice to see you back, Mary:)

  9. Mary,

    I WAS wondering... I thought you'd got used to a quiet life without blogging! I am glad to hear you WILL be back when circumstances allow. And I'm so sorry to hear about the misfortunes of your mother's employees.

    God bless!

  10. I've received a few requests to open up “Pay It Forward” to posts from a bloggers own blog. I thought I'd give it a try. Although the original idea was to share what you've seen elsewhere on the internet, I recognize that each time we post something on our own blogs we are also sharing Good News, great tips, wonderful prayers, fabulous photos, scrumptious recipes, hilarious humor, unbelievable books, stories of goodwill, or good things that have knocked our socks off. I hope you’ll post something from your blog.

    I'll leave the March linky open until March 14th. (Entered links will appear in two posts.) I can't wait to see what gets posted!

  18. Why don't we start bets as to which day Mary will return to Blogging?

    (Mary is not allowed to place a bet).

    God bless.
