RAINBOWS END AND A BIG CHANGE

Because the kids have been so good about their crap summer holidays, and the fact we have had to stay home because of puppies, we are sending them to Rainbow's End today.

For the entire day.  On their own.  Well not quite.  They have organised to meet up with a few of their school friends for the day too.

So.  That means Stew and I have to day to ourselves.  

So Stew's going to mow the lawns and I shall do the washing!  lol
How romantic.  

In just over a week we shall not be tied to the house with puppies.  That will be nice.  I won't have to worry about feedings, exercise, poop clean up etc.

But of course I will miss the little fluffy buggers!  But not the poop, oh no, never the poop! lol

So it's going to be a normal sort of day really.  Just without kids.

That's all for now.  Catch ya later.

ONWARD...

I had just typed out a huge spiel on my plans to stop blogging permanently, from today on.

But then I decided to change that.

From today on... I am only going to blog ONCE A WEEK.

I am finding the stress of blogging (and it is an added stress) is not worth it right now.
I need a break from as much stress as possible.  So starting today ... I will only blog on a WEDNESDAY.

It is going to be a huge change for me, but one I need.  And it is better than just stopping forever... agreed?

So.  I will be back next Wednesday with all the week's news/happenings/photos and so on.

End of Day:  have a lovely weekend!

  3. I hope that you and Stew get to go out for lunch together, see a movie, go for a walk or do something enjoyable together today - not just housework. I'm going to miss my daily fix of your blog too but it's more important that you do what works for you and take care of yourself. Have a good week.

  28. Chris, you'll be missed! You need to do what is best for you, we will muddle through. Hopefully you'll be able to blog maybe twice a week, once a week is going to be tough, keep notes so you don't forget anything to tell us. Hugs to you!

  31. I've always been amazed at people who could blog everyday-- it's A LOT of time, so I totally understand switching to weekly, if not for a while time life calms down for you a bit.
    I hope you and Stew had a nice day together.

  32. When you decided to write once a week, I typed a big long paragraph stating that you will be missed and blah blah blah. But it disappeared into thin air. So here I am a few days later, robotically typing Diet..... into the computer only to remember and check if you slipped in an update. you have not updated. I miss you. sad face...

  33. Will miss your daily updates - but I think you will find life a lot less stressful not blogging daily. Take care

    Will definitely miss your daily updates and pictures. You've got quite a fan base and so many care about you (me included) so you do what you have to do. Fingers crossed you miss us just as much and upgrade to a few more days. Sending loads of good thoughts your way for the house sale. 2016 will be a great year for you and your family!
    Best,
