Back to Blogging

Laura here.  Somewhere in the Pennsylvania woodlands (Note from Laura: I wrote this post last night in the car, but we’re back in Akron now!).  We’re driving back from a weekend trip to Connecticut to go deep sea fishing with my dad, sisters, and brother-in-law.  Mike will be blogging about it next week for Mike’s Manly Monday.

I guess I owe you an explanation as to why I suddenly stopped blogging.  Well, it was pretty difficult to manage everything with Mike gone.  I got sick pretty much the second he left.  And the dogs wrestled 24/7 in a very annoying and stressful way.  Feel free to become victimized by it yourself:

In addition, the grass grew super fast and had to be mowed twice, work was demanding, and I had an abundance of assignments due for my internship.  Unable to balance all aspects of being a full-time student with two-part time jobs, one internship, and having to manage a house while being a single dog-parent, I decided to take some time away from blogging, which turned out to be a good decision.  I was able to write a few papers for school, get projects done around the house without worrying about any deadlines, and I even had time to give myself a pedicure.  Now that I am back to blogging, I will of course write about those previously completed projects.  Hopefully one of my upcoming projects will be to reupholster this chair that I purchased from the Salvation Army for $3.99:

And, as I’m sure you’ve guessed, there won’t be a Mike’s Manly Monday this week (we’re already done with Monday for this week, thank goodness!).  Mike is dutifully working on next week’s, though, so keep on the lookout for that!
