I love you, peeps, but other priorities shoved blogging right out of the agenda for a while. My husband has been back for about four days now, so life is calming down and getting easier again. I was busy enough when I had him here to share the load of parenting and other household duties! When he left, it was all I could do to keep myself, my son, and my house presentable and in working order while working a full-time job. Picking hubby up this past Friday after him being gone for a month for LDAC was like Christmas Morning.
[Insert sigh of relief here]
I started FLYing the weekend that he left (I think I may have mentioned that a post or two back). I have to admit that it was a little overwhelming at first until I got my bearings and found out how/where to start. Now, I'm in a pretty good routine and I'm LOVING it! For those of you who are wondering what I'm talking about (and are, let's face it, too lazy/busy/whatever excuse to click on the link I just gave you....*wink*), here's the scoop:
FlyLady is a site that helps you get your home and your life in order. I thought I was doing pretty well, but then my friend Jeannie started telling me about how she started FLYing and how much she loved it. I decided to try it. What did I have to lose? Well it's awesome. It's free and easy to get started (if you do, though, I would suggest opting for the daily digest email option!). My husband is loving the new system and our house is always company-ready! If it weren't for FlyLady, I'm pretty sure I would have fallen to pieces, overwhelmed, while McKay was gone. I've been a pretty independent person most of my life, but once you get used to having that other person and you get into routines that involve him/her it's hard to get used to doing things by yourself again!
Bottom line: vacation came and went (lots of fun, by the way!) and McKay is back, so I should be up and blogging again in no time! Please be patient with me though--I have a lot of blog reading to catch up on and my family is still my tippy-top priority. I swear I'll be posting regularly (or binge-writing and scheduling posts...ssshhhh) quick as a hiccup.
Thanks for hangin' in there with me!
