That's all you've been hearing from me for the last couple of weeks. I need to apologize for not posting but sometimes we need to go into lock down to survive the stress of our lives, which is what I've needed to do the last couple of weeks.
First of all, let me say nothing bad happened. Everyone is fine, I just was completely overwhelmed with "stuff" and needed to concentrate on completing the "must do". Sadly my blogging didn't fall into that category.
January was a very rough month for me. Here are some of the highlights:
- Two weeks of travel (one personal, one business)
- Major project at work resulting in more work hours required
- Upheaval with schedules at home resulting in significantly more running for the momma
- My commitment to a more healthy lifestyle
- Not feeling well (combination of working out, travel and catching a cold)
Another issue is my son is taking a number of night classes this semester. What this means that I need to do the running in the evening that he was doing for me, cutting into my commenting and networking time.
When life throws us curve balls we need to reassess our situation, hunker down to wait out the storm and figure out a way to move forward with our new normal. Temporarily putting my writing last was what I needed to do to weather this storm but I've also sketched out a new plan of action so I can continue to consistently post.
Going forward I'll be doing most of my writing on the weekends while still trying to spend some time in the evenings commenting and networking. I usually have Saturday mornings free so my goal will be to utilize that time for writing. I've also downloaded the Dragon APP to my new IPhone, (which I absolutely love!) this has been helping me to get down my thoughts regarding posts on my commute to and from work. My goal is to get at least a week's worth of posts in the hopper by Sunday evening.
Here are the posts I have written for the week:

- Goal Planning for the Week
- How and Why I Menu Plan
