I’d like to apologize to any loyal readers that I have left out there in the blogosphere for my recent lack of posts. I have been cooking, although admittedly not on the same level as I normally do. I do have a few archived recipes that I should blog about soon but I’m not sure when that will happen. Let me take a moment to give you all my excuses for my absence so you will not think that I am simply a horrible, lazy blogger….
Excuse #1 New Job: I recently started substitute teaching to keep myself busy and make a little money. Surprisingly, I have worked everyday since the 3rd day of school and I’m totally exhausted when I get home most days. I have a new found respect for all teachers in this world. It’s hard work!
Excuse # 2 New Volunteer Position: I recently accepted a volunteer position called the Family Readiness Group Leader. Basically I am the go-to person for any questions, concerns, etc. that any of the spouses and/or parents of the soldiers in my husband’s unit have. I have to conduct monthly meetings and disseminate information to the families as it becomes available. It’s a huge time commitment and basically all of my time that I would be using for blogging is now going to this position. Hopefully things will slow down soon though and I can get back to blogging.
Excuse #3 New Dog: We recently adopted a 3 year old Terrier mix named Libby from a rescue shelter. She has brought so much joy to our house but it’s always an adjustment when you get a new dog. She’s absolutely adorable and so very well-behaved. I’m think I’m never getting another puppy again…it just feels so good to know that we “rescued” her and that we don’t have to potty train her!
Excuse #4 Absent Husband: My husband is at a month-long training session with his unit in preparation for their deployment to Iraq and it really affects my blogging because who wants to cook for themselves only?!? Plus, I will admit being at home in the evenings without him is a little depressing so even when I have intentions to cook it usually ends up not happening.
So I hope these excuses will help you understand why I’ve been so missing in action lately. I promise to start blogging again when time permits! Please stay tuned….
