I'm Back! (and Point of View Reminder)

I'm back, but you didn't even know I was gone, did you? We were away on vacation last week, camping in Maine for the first half of the week (just like last summer) and then in Vermont visiting family for the second half. It was a nice break from everything. I'm glad to be home, but there's a part of me that misses being away from the day-to-day stuff. I'd rather be at the beach than doing laundry right now, wouldn't you? It was nice to be away from the computer, too, even though I did steal my husband's phone a couple of times to check my email and read a few blogs. I've come to the realization recently that I've been spending way more time on the computer than I would like to. I'm trying out a new schedule around the house starting today that will hopefully keep me off the computer during most of the day, and I'll be blogging more at night. We'll see how it works out. Please be patient with me as I fumble my way through this :)

I really appreciate all of the comments I received on the posts I had scheduled to go up while I was away last week. It will take me a few days to get back to everyone who had questions and to catch up on all the email and blog reading, but I'll get there.

Since I can't write a post without a picture... I haven't shared the MADE beach robes that I sewed for the girls, so here's a peek at my oldest's. I'll share more pics of these soon.

I also want to remind everyone that this month's Point of View reveal is this Friday, August 26th.

The theme is "Back to School", so dust off those old back to school posts or make something new and get ready to join the Point of View Back to School Link Party on Friday. Hope to see you there!

Welcome back! I decided to make a new schedule too. It is so easy for me to "lose" a few hours of just sitting here browsing. As I type the laundry is washing and I am getting a good start.

Love the robe...and those curls! Just do what you can. I'll enjoy whatever you can post. :)

hey gwenny! love that robe, and yes, post when you have time, it's good to step back from the computer and into real life, I know I need it!

Yay for a trip to Maine. It sounds wonderful. I have to admit Maine is one of the places on my list of "I hope I get to go there some day." I really relate with trying to find a balance of blogging and life. I am always having to reevaluate too. It is a hard balance if you ask me :) Love your darling MADE robes.

Hi Gwen! Nice to see you back! I know what you mean about stepping back. I've been spending less time at the computer this summer too trying to enjoy some time with my little one and hubby, trying to find that sweet spot of balanced happiness. I've been doing the bare minimum (for me that's my three posts/week) which is do-able but still consumes a considerable amount of time. And who knows? That may change in the future. Bottom line: Find what's important to you, and do that well. The rest of it doesn't matter IMHO. :)

Welcome back! Sounds like a wonderful vacation. I love Maine. I have been on two camping trips. Once on an unforgettable rafting trip there on the kennebac (sp?) river years ago and another when we spent our first anniversary camping in Kennebunkport. Such a special place. I love that bathrobe. A girfriend of mine made one for a camping trip and it was really handy.
