I could have posted last week...

But I didn't. It's not like I couldn't have - I had my computer, I had wifi, but honestly, I was at the cottage, and when I did open my computer, it was for work purposes, and doing that sort of sucked all the enjoyment out of it! I had to do enough work that it started to annoy me, so when I was done, I pretty much ignored the computer. The good thing is, the work I had to do was important, it solved some issues that would have ballooned into major problems if I had ignored them, so that's all good. And as I told my boss, I did enough to justify taking this Thursday off to watch my son and his school basketball team play for the York Region championship.
So it was worth it.
I also spent a lot of time with my son, with friends and with my knitting. All in all, when you weigh the good with the bad, the good came out on top, and that's a good thing.
I've spent the time since I've been home catching up on some blog reading, and getting my house back after a week of my husband batching it. I have GOT to introduce that man to the broom...
To make up for last week, and for my crankiness today, I will post every day this week - knitting pictures to come!

It's okay, I wouldn't have touched the computer any more then I had to if I was at the lake either.

Many years ago, when our house consisted of DH and 2 teenagers, I was teaching with a 1-hour commute. The generally looked after the house during the week, and I cleaned on the weekends. Non-sweeping all week long was an issue for me.
So I made a poster for the family whiteboard. It went something like this:

NOTICE of IN-SERVICE
Saturday, 9AM
Topic: Broom Usage
Refreshments will be served.
Everyone please attend.

I hung this up on Thursday.
The inservice was cancelled because the objective was met.

I guess I have to announce an in-service for myself for remembering to proof-read blog comments.☺

I totally understand. Sometimes life just gets busy and blogging has to go to the back of the line. That's what's happened for me lately too. I'm hoping to get back to it this week. We'll see. Have a great week!

Welcomee home. Days at the cottage even with a bit of work to do sound great. Men without brooms - makes anyone grumpy!

It's totally cool to escape from normal every day things once & a while!
