I want to take a few minutes just to catch up and say hello. Hello, friend, how are you?
If you subscribe to my friends-letter, a short weekend email, you’re a little more in the loop. I would love to send it to you; I promise, it takes only a minute to read.
We’re a few weeks into the new year and some things are going well for me while others are feeling a little crazy.
First, I have news to share, news I think you’ll like.
I’ve decided to return to One Thankful Mom.
You may be wondering why it took me so long to come to this decision. There are many factors involved ranging from the technical to the financial.
The most overwhelming for me is the need to redesign the old site and then do all the tech work to export everything from this site to that one (for tech folks, also from one platform to another) and then move back to my old domain (web address).
There are so many details and it’s far more than I can do on my own. If you’re a word press blog designer, or can recommend one, leave a comment or shoot me an email at email@example.com
Our visit with Hannah was wonderful. With so much snow and ice, we ended up staying home a lot, which meant more time for knitting, talking, cooking, and just being together. It also meant school was canceled one day so the kids got a little more time with her too.
She helped me declutter my clothes and we dreamed up a knitting side business for her, just in case this surgeon gig doesn’t work out. Just kidding about the surgeon thing – but not entirely about the knitting business! Hannah and Annarose are prolific knitters; who knows what they might do?
With so much ice on the roads and sidewalks is it’s been very hard to get outside and walk with the dog. I’ve managed not to fall but it’s a serious risk. My treadmill has been acting up too, so I’ve decided to join the local gym. The last time I was a member I was pregnant with Claire, so it’s been a few years. I’m slightly intimidated, but my friends tell me I’ll love it and I’m willing to give it a try.
I’ve been reading most mornings and turning off the computer to read most evenings as well. I’ve finished three books so far this year (in order):
Love Warrior by Glennon Doyle Melton I have very mixed feelings about this book. I read it to discuss with Hannah and Mimi and we had plenty to talk about.
Born Broken by Kristin Berry I had the honor of reading a galley copy of Kristin’s new book and writing an endorsement. I honestly could not put it down.
Have you read Boundaries and applied the principles to your life?
I have a meeting in 30 minutes and need to run. I hope you have a great day. If you are signed up for my friends-letter, you’ll find it in your inbox Friday or Saturday. I’ll be asking my friends-letter folks for advice on a new One Thankful Mom logo – just as soon as I find someone to design it, and I would love to have you add your thoughts.
Thank you for reading and sharing my day. Thank you for being so patient as I’ve sorted out this blog, moving from One Thankful Mom to Thankful Moms, and now starting the journey back. Deep breath – we’re going to make it.
