It took me two days to get to my own post on the Blog Party Linky. I can't imagine I'll get that much visits from the party when it took ME 2 days to get there. Maybe everyone else isn't quite as anal retentive as me... and knows when they have had enough of a good thing?? I mean, there are other things to do besides read great blogs, right? Help me here.
I'm thinking I'll have to quit at #121 for now. That's me, folks - #121. I think the total number of participating blogs is now up to 958 or some crazy number like that. And it took me two days to get to #121. Yeah, like my goal to comment on almost everyone's blog is going to be a realistic one?! Sha! Right!
I am at a crossroads here, people. It is either...
1. Homeschool, Eat, Sleep, and have a life...
2. Read and comment on 958 blogs this week.
Which do you think will win out? Only time will tell. I guess you'll have to come back and check on me later to see if I went blind this week from staring at my monitor.
In other important and neglected news this week... My kids made the cover of HOTM (Heart of the Matter Online Homeschooling Magazine) - see photo below. And if you need some more to read this week besides tons of introductory party posts (some of them rather clever!)... you can check out my book review of "The Organized Homeschooler" by Vicki Caruana (available only in the print/pdf version at HOTM) over there... or read my March Article on "Weapons AGAINST Mass Distraction".
The photo in this post (below) is the cover of the HOTM March Issue and is of my sweet babies at Petit Jean State Park in Arkansas last Spring. Man, I miss the lovely scenery up there. Although I am actually a Texan at heart, I certainly loved living up there and think maybe Tejas should just annex it so we can call it home, too! They wouldn't be loosing out since we don't have state income tax or produce tax down here. However, we would probably ruin their pristine Ozarks with billboards. I hate billboards.
Also important, please pray for Robin Sampson of Heart of Wisdom. Seems she had some trouble with her heart (and what a sweet heart it is) this week and had to be rushed to the hospital. We are glad she's ok! Pray for her to have a swift recovery, please! She's an inspiration.
I guess it is time for me to turn in to a pumpkin - daylight savings is kicking my hiney. Have a blessed week, all! Don't burn your retina to a crisp on the Blog Party! Here's a tip: Use a kitchen timer and limit your blog reading this week (if you are insane like me and get sucked in to the whirling vortex of blogdom, that is!).
Oh, and by the way - Sweet Jocelyn kindly took me off the list to host a carnival tomorrow... so I won't actually be hosting the Homesteading Blog Carnival! You can check with Jocelyn to find out where it will be located! I think she could sense the panic in my email about this month's schedule and she took pity on me. Be looking forward to me doing it in the summer months - once the calendar frees itself up, school is out and the laundry isn't creeping out of my hallway. You are a dear, Jocelyn! Sorry for being such a busy scatterbrain!
