I am in back to school mode even though no one in my family has been " back to school" in the traditional sense in ages. Is it years of being first a student and then mother to students that causes this feeling, or is the flurry of activity of others contagious?
We aren't much further along in the home improvement/redecorating project but progress is being made. I've been away from home a lot during the day, and even when time has allowed me to post from my iPad, the blogger fairies and gremlins conspired to keep me quiet. Some sites have been taking so long to open, they time out, or that at least is my guess. I can't find a common reason. Some are Blogger, some are Word Press, so it isn't one host that is incompatible.
I hate what election years do to some people, and every four years the mud slinging seems to get worse. I'm not talking about political ads. I can mute them or fast foward through them on recorded shows. I'm talking about the junk in emails and on Facebook. I've been spending less time online because of this. I wrote a long post the other day and while it felt good to rant a bit, it isn't what I want my blog to be about.
I have a dozen things to do and extra people to feed (not a complaint, just a little more care in planning and executing) so if I am successful in publishing this post from my iPad, I hope I'll be able to comment on your blogs later. Right now I have an urge to go look at binders and sniff boxes of crayons.
