Yes, I’ve been absent. But it isn’t you…it’s me! No really. You are great…perfect even. It’s me with the issues. I think I have commitment issues…or maybe my dysfunctional family history has scarred me…
Ok, truth is that I’m busy as heck right now. Our internet was out for several days after an unfortunate electrical storm took out our router. So I’ve been playing catch-up. Lot’s of work-related things…OH…and did I mention I’m hosting a brand new website?
It is called SecularHomeschool.com, and it is sort of a combination resource/info site for secular homeschoolers combined with a social network. I’m writing articles about secular homeschooling and submitting them for the site, as well as collecting info for the Resources section. And then there is the
overwhelming simple task of chasing after the millions of glitches that have already come up, and building a base of members.
I would LOVE it if you, my bloggy buddies, would drop by the site, check it out, and even sign up, if you think it is something you might enjoy being a part of. (Obi-Mom – – 007 that she is – – already found it!) Granted, it is starting out small, but with more and more secular homeschoolers joining the ranks, I think it has the potential to be something special in the near future.
But I’ve done a couple of non-techie things lately as well. We’re having out-of-town guests coming this week, and I’ve been trying to get some of the 3,425 unfinished projects around the house completed. I finally finished sanding and painting the porch (only took me two years from start to finish), re-landscaping the flower beds, painting the kitchen trim, etc, etc.
Thank goodness for company. They are the only motivation that actually works for me when it comes to maintaining a home properly.
I’m banking on the fact that absence makes the heart grow fonder. Feeling fonder of me yet??
