*Comes Out of Hiding*

I took a mini hiatus last week. Did ya miss me?

Last week I took a trial run at planning out my week, and trying to make quality time for family, blogging, entrepreneurial tasks and just plan out me time. In an effort to make sure the Mr. and my children are getting the time they need from me, I will not be on the computer from the hours of 3p-8p and the computer will be shut off at 11:30p daily. It’s going to be hard, but it must be done. With that new adjustment to my daily schedule, its no mystery that two things found themselves out of the loop and on the doorstep. Yep, you guessed right, blogging and “Me” time got straight dissed. This week, I am trying the same schedule but seeing that I don’t have 3 weeks of laundry to wash and fold, blogging is now back in my life.

Yes! Three weeks of laundry. I’m not really sure how that happened. I tried to stay on top of it but….I was just washing the whites and hoping no one needed anything colored but the inevitable had to be done. Took me ALL week to get it under control.Other than laundry, I really began putting in time daily on my business and started the ball rolling on a few new things.  I am pleased with my progress…now if I can just keep it up.

 Race training is going well. I have been using the Couch to 5K app on my phone and even though I am on week 2 I see progress already. I have gotten an extra kick in the A&% to get out there, my blood pressure was 141/101 Saturday. *sigh*

I have gotten quite a number of new followers over the past few weeks. A warm HELLO, hugs and air smooches to you. Please don’t be a stranger!

For all of you with blogs, I will get around to reading and commenting eventually..Blame it on the laundry for my tardiness and lack of blog etiquette.

Last but most important, Audrey over at The Chronicles of a Future Wife is hosting a giveaway for a Divinitee shirt. Head over to her blog for the deets and enter to win. Thanks for your support.

See you tomorrow!

    We usually have no less than 3-4 weeks worth of laundry in our house. We don’t have kids though so I can see how that could get a little out of hand. Way to go on shutting off the computer and reestablishing the fam as a major priority. I need to do this myself so from 6pm-8pm every day…I to am going to be away from the computer giving my hubby my attention. I usually jump right on the computer after work. In fact we both do. I’ve been looking at this time as our after work zone out time but now I think we could certainly stand to fit in some after work regrouping with each other time. Thanks for the idea.

    I think the only reason I am on here so much is because the hubby is not here if he was here I would be ghost. I had to get myself on a schedule also and so far it has been good i have fallen off a little but so far it’s been good. I am usually on my phone when I am online because my phone goes everywhere with me. Good luck on the clothes and your new schedule.

    It’s good to see you back! I have also had to scale back my blogging time to fit in more important things in my life. I am getting the hang of my new schedule now, but at first, it was hard to do without always visiting blogs, writing posts, and worrying about Twitter.
