I'm just checking in. I hope you all understand my need for a sabbatical of sorts. I appreciate the kind words and e-mails I've received from many of you. Nothing is wrong, I'm just in what is typically my busiest time of the year.
I'm sure the perfect blogger would have already pre-written 30 posts to get through the month or would have guest bloggers every day. But as we all know, I am most definitely NOT perfect...at much of anything (despite my desperate attempts to become so). If, however, someone would like to guest blog, I'd be open to that. Shoot me an e-mail at amy@thoughtsofTHATmom.com with your ideas if you're interested. I have like, 3 readers...on a good day...unless you don't count my husband, my MIL, & my cat...so I can give you incredible exposure!
Those of you who don't homeschool know how busy back-to-school time can be for you. Now, imagine that you're not only sending your kids BACK to school, but YOU are the school! For the first time ever this year, we took an extended break in the summer. As a result, I have really been scrambling to get everyone back on track while getting us organized for the upcoming year which promises to be a busy one with a couple of trips to Tulsa & one or two to Chicago to visit family.
I have been working on finishing my line-by-line on the health care legislation (HR 3200). Due to my busy month, it has taken a LOT longer than it usually does for me to do something like this...not to mention the fact that it's over a thousand pages long! I've been writing about it & splitting it into several different posts. I had the first one ready to post a couple days ago when Blogger pooped out on me & lost all of my changes. I was tired so I just gave up & went to bed.
Note to Blogger: I love that you are free, but Wordpress is also free...and they allow me to upload a word file to my blog & be good to go. If you don't change this & quick, then you're going to lose me. I can also utilize the Wordpress platform & all of their many add-ons on my own server. Seriously, you need to update quick! 'Cause a lot of us are leaving you behind and not looking back. Yeah. I said us...I'm about to join the ranks! 'Cause I just don't have time for messing with your issues any more!
Anyway...back to the point of my blog. I will be getting at least the first one posted in the next couple of days. (Likely Sunday after we get back from camping this weekend.)
To help me focus more specifically on what people want answered, feel free to e-mail me at amy@thoughtsofTHATmom.com or comment here about what you want to know regarding the health care legislation. Is there a specific rumor you want debunked or proven? A specific section you'd like someone to analyze for you? If I can't find the answer, I'll use the powers at my fingertips (i.e.-Twitter & Facebook) to attempt to find the answer.
