Here we are, at post 1,001. I probably would have not noticed if Caden hadn't been standing over my shoulder when I logged in today. When I started blogging in February 2007, I really thought it would be a passing activity, and sometimes it was!
I have learned so much since that first entry. This blog land is populated by so many tremendously talented people filled with great insight and ideas. I hope that I've been able to share with you my favourites and you've gleened a bit about me and the crazy happenings in my family!
As a result of my Blogging for Scrapbookers course, taken with a group of lovely women over at Shimelle earlier this month, I'm trying to decide what changes I should make. In October 2008, I decided to move my "artsy-crafty" stuff over to a new blog: theLINARstudio (LINAR stands for Life Is Not A Rehearsal). Lately I have found it cumbersome to maintain two blogs, provide content on two and maintain two platforms: Blogger here and Typepad there. I do prefer the Typepad flexibility, though I did have a designer make the template and I'm not sure how to mess around with it so I can add/delete stuff like I can at will here on Blogger. I like the simplicity of the Blogger format. I've paid for the Typepad platform, it's free here on blogger.
It took me a while to realize that I have an audience, so, now that I am aware, I'm going to ask you which you prefer. In the comments please vote! L2L or LINAR?
And, you're welcome to say anything else you might want me to know, too :)
I'm off to complete my Saturday. I don't know about you, but the weekends here are getting out of control. Today started with ...
a 6AM hockey practice for Caden, then;
a 9:30AM volleyball game for Claire, followed by;
a 12 noon birthday party for Caden (back on the ice again!), then;
a 1:30PM showing of New Moon for Claire and a gaggle of friends, boys and girls; simultaneously
a 2PM Christmas Carol concert for Cole, rehearsal and performance which he has to slip out early in order to make;
a 4:30PM hockey photo session - team and individual pics for Cole, then deliver Chloe to
a 5PM sleep-over birthday party and manage to get to, on time,
a 5:30PM pre-game warm up for Cole, which turns into,
a 6:30PM hockey game vs Orangeville for Cole. My parents are coming in from Toronto to watch, yay! Following that, hopefully victorious game,
we have 8:30PM reservations for dinner with out family, my parents and Cole's teammate and his family and then I'm hoping for
a before midnight bed time, since Louis and Claire have to be at the rink for Sunday at 6:30AM
I expect the highlander will cover more than 200km of roadway and we'll never leave town!
Alas, no crafty time, but I have managed four loads of laundry and one load of dishes so far. Sunday looks somewhat less busy, but still two trips to the rink. Hope you're having a wonderful weekend.
