#This&That&TheOther Thing – #BlogBreakFriday

THIS

Just a quick note so you don’t think I’ve disappeared forever. Today is #BlogBreakFriday for me, and I want to assure you good people that I’ll be writing all day long, if all goes well. I have a novella to finish, and want to make some serious progress on what I hope will be a very interesting tale.

THAT

The last three weeks have been jam packed morning, noon, and night with work on house and yard projects, and in taking care of the many things that are changing now that my husband is officially retired. Who knew leaving a job would cause so much … well … WORK?!!? So many details to settle and changes to be made, and phone calls to place to get everything set up for what seems to be the biggest Life Change we’ve faced to date. Holy Moly! But we’re gradually making sense of it all and sorting out all the paperwork and meetings, from financial advisors to doctors, and more.

THE OTHER THING

The good news is that soon, the dust will settle, Mark will be working part time with my son, our other changes will get made, and … TADA! … I’ll be able to do more than just “Like” and “Share” posts from all my favorite bloggers! I’m looking forward to that almost as much as finishing Cole, Cole, & Dupree!

So, in the famous words of Arnold the Terminator, “Ah’ll be back!”

~~~

And on that note,
Enjoy your weekend, everyone!
See you again soon!

This & That & The Other Thing – Blog Break Friday

THIS

After spending the last 25 years as Chief Engineer of a big downtown building, working at the same desk, in the same office, but under several different management companies, my husband is now retired. He’d planned to work through the rest of the year, but realized he really didn’t want to wait any longer. (He’ll be 73 in November, so had already worked much longer than many).

At any rate, this decision has meant we have LOTS to take care of and set up all of a sudden. And being a man of many talents and loads of energy, Mark also plans to work part time, possibly for my son, but also doing some other things. This means yet more stuff to set up. Combine all of this with all the  house and yard projects we are in the middle of around here, and my time will not be my own for a couple of weeks. For those of you whose blogs I regularly follow, I will do my best to Like & Share for now, and will get back to commenting again as soon as I can, honest! I know you guys will understand! 😊❤️

THAT

While I will continue running #ThorsDaySmile and #GrannySays on alternate weeks, and will also continue scheduling guest posts for any and all who’d like to take part in #GuestDayTuesday or #TenThingsYouMayNotKnowAbout Me, I’m pretty sure I won’t be posting much myself for the next few weeks. I’m still taking my one day a week Blog Break–those will likely be a permanent thing– but I’ll return to my regular (busier and more fun) schedule around here as soon as possible.  Just wanted to be sure you guys know it’s not always going to be this slow on TWS, and that there’s nothing dire going on. Just busy, busy, busy at the moment, BUT … never too busy to schedule guests! Honest!

THE OTHER THING

Yep, today is Blog Break Friday, so I’m going to wrap this post up now that I’ve updated you. And thanks again for understanding why my visits to other blogs will probably be limited for a couple more weeks!


ENJOY THE WEEKEND AHEAD, EVERYONE!
