I’m Not Slacking - I Swear!!

I know I haven’t been here in a week again (or so it seems) but I’m not slacking - I swear!! I took on a project for September over at Informed Sharing and I’ve been quite busy with that for this whole first week.

Plus the kid AND the hubs started back to school last week and that was crazy busy, too. She’s a big bad middle schooler now and he took on a third Majors class (he’s an adjunct prof at MECA here in Portland, ME) this Fall semester.

So along with learning how to navigate a new school, new schedule, and choosing to play tennis (new to her sport), we have been dealing with a lovely new pre-teen attitude as well.


And then the hubs’ schedule is full up with 12-16 hour days teaching, working his regular job (he owns his own company - White Dog Arts - Digital Film Production), and now he’ll be traveling for a brand new documentary (more on that when I can talk about it!!) he’s directing.

And then there’s me.

Not slacking.

I’m probably the glue. Maybe.

Sometimes I’m the gaffer’s tape (inside joke. Unless you know what that is, then YAY, you get it).

Either way. It’s been crazy busy in our house and I’ve been just not here. Or so it seems.

I have cruised by a time or two throughout the past week and noticed a few things.

It does help to be a Facebook Fan of Persona Paper. Whenever Will posts an update there, I’m aware and even if I’m on my phone, I can pop over and have a look see. I think I like the new front page; however, I haven’t spent enough time there, yet.

Just being honest.

What else?

Oh, I still have eight folks on tap for when I get back on track of showcasing Persona Paper Peeps! :)

I haven’t forgotten.

Just taking a wee little break while I help a few folks with a little fundraising. It’s not gone as well as I’d hoped. Of course the plan was more than two-fold. And so, maybe a little confusing. But we’re only a week in. We’ll see.

Bottom line?

I just want to help some folks who genuinely need it.

In the mean time, I’m a bit better caught up this week and that means I should be able to visit more here; which I LOVE most of all. Besides writing, of course. :)

I don’t like being so out of the loop. Though that could just be because I’m plain nosey. That’s probably it. ;)

Anyway, I’d better close for now. Hope this finds you all quite well. I can’t wait to see what I’ve been missing and I can’t wait to share what’s to come.

~ Cheers

i don't think you need to explain. It was your own plan and if for whatever reason you are not able to meet your own deadlines, no one is going to say anything. Do it at your pace and at your pace alone.

SandraLynn wrote on September 8, 2014, 5:47 AM

I'm meeting deadlines there; I just haven't been able to be here as I would like, Grace. That part has me sad. But I'm always figuring out how to fit it all in. Just takes a minute or three, sometimes :) And I most usually tend to over explain, lol ;)

Nice to see you this morning (or evening or whatever ;) )

Neither morning or evening but just in between emoticon :grin:

SandraLynn wrote on September 8, 2014, 5:55 AM

Then GOOD DAY to you, my dear, lol emoticon :grin:

Also wherever it is I think we are free to do whatever and whenever

You are forgiven! Now I've just got work out the penance. :)

SandraLynn wrote on September 8, 2014, 6:13 AM

Well, I think you are right to a certain extent but I feel a certain obligation (one that I put upon myself). None of you did that, I say true. However, sometimes I may have to remind myself that I'm not slacking either ;) It's not literal, my friend. Really. Just a grabby title - meant to draw you in. Meant to catch you up :) I hope then that I followed through :)

SandraLynn wrote on September 8, 2014, 6:15 AM

Name it, I'll attempt it. I'm a lapsed Catholic, lol. But leave me be awhile, I'm working my way through the list of latest and you've got some good ones on there ;)

suffolkjason wrote on September 8, 2014, 6:23 AM

Working through the latest is an acceptable penance! :)

SandraLynn wrote on September 8, 2014, 6:27 AM

WooHOO. Then I'm happily doing so. (don't tell anyone I'm happy about it. I don't know what that means, exactly ;) )

I'm sorry, young lady, but we have seen a pattern emerge in your behavior. Excuses are for the weak, buck it up.

This time of year is so busy with the start of a new school year. I remember those pre-teen years and I do not envy you.

Ellis wrote on September 8, 2014, 5:37 PM

Hey...who said you could use my picture? lol

SandraLynn wrote on September 9, 2014, 4:03 AM

I know. It's become a weekly thing. Pfft. Maybe that's my thing.

SandraLynn wrote on September 9, 2014, 4:04 AM

LOL. I typed in slacker over at Pixabay and he's the only thing/one that came up. I took 'em ;)

SandraLynn wrote on September 9, 2014, 4:05 AM

Where's my moll thing? I'm the Princess, I said ;) lol

SandraLynn wrote on September 9, 2014, 4:08 AM

OMGosh I want to rip eyeballs and hair out and I want to jump off cliffs and shout from mountain tops. I want to scream to my mother WHY (she cursed me, said she hoped I'd have 10 just like me - turns out one was plenty)...I just keep muttering: 6.5 more years...

It's not helping...

PS: I love my kid. I do. These days, though? Really hard to like her a whole lot emoticon :heart:

I am slacking and proud of it. Your busy life makes my head swim. I am retired and my new career is slacking as much as I can get by with under the circumstances. PS: Overexplain all you want!

SLGarcia wrote on September 9, 2014, 12:34 PM

I remember saying the same thing to my daughter. Her day will come!

SandraLynn wrote on September 9, 2014, 1:46 PM

Her day better come, lol. She's trying to get out of it by declaring she won't give me grandbabies.

Pfft. ;)

SandraLynn wrote on September 9, 2014, 1:48 PM

GOOD for you, Janet :) Sometimes I LOVE it and sometimes I want to crawl under a rock, lol. Sometimes I have to stay still, so there's that ;) Otherwise, I just do about as much as I can do and not another thing more :)

JanetJenson wrote on September 9, 2014, 2:09 PM

I did break out of slacking long enough to write you another 8 fave thingee, rflol, hope u enjoy it.

SandraLynn wrote on September 10, 2014, 8:14 AM

LMAO. I saw it this morning by chance. I will add it in a day or so, as you may note why ;) Thank you most kindly :)
