Getting Back to Blogging... Back from Hiatus...

Hi. :)

I have been away from the computer for a long time now; I haven't even logged my exercise in Daily Mile. So much has gone on, I'm not sure which moments to share... there certainly have been a few things to celebrate! :) I think I shall simply wing it and share a few things here and there as I resume blogging again. But first, I shall very briefly summarize here what has been going on in my life as of late.

Long story short - I got behind at home and desperately needed to catch up. So much that I simply had to hide myself from the computer! :o ~ I miss you all very much, but can not deny that the trip to hiatus was WORTH IT! Am I caught up? No... Will I ever be? Hmm.. After asking myself this question, I decided to just go ahead and work myself back into blogging. But I do think I may end up being a weekly reader. Balancing life activities and how I spend my time is an ongoing endeavor!

I will let you know that I have been working on several things as of late (the frustrating thing is working on so many things that not too big of a dent was put in some of them): Cleaning house, Gardening (I built a third garden bed... and just planted zucchini sprouts in the bed a couple of days ago. I figure zucchini has a chance this late in the year; it's worth a try!); I did some de-cluttering, and really want to do some more!; much needed home repairs have been time consuming but exciting... still have a long way to go here!; and last but not least (meaning, most important, really) I have been working on myself, as a wife, a mom, a homemaker, a person etc. In an effort to be a better me, I went to a Humans Being Moore conference which I MUST soon share with you! IT WAS ABSOLUTELY AWESOME!! It was so good that I'm just going to create a spot for a link to it RIGHT HERE. There, now I have to write about it so I can link that future post back to this one for future readers. ;)

And last Sunday (I just need to celebrate real quick here...:) I got to substitute teach in Relief Society! Yeah! :D the lesson was Families Can Be Eternal; I LOVED it! Miles got to do something Sunday as well... he sang Because I Have Been Given Much in Sacrament meeting. It. Was. Amazing!!! I hadn't heard him sing it until then... and my mouth dropped to the floor when I heard it. My friend, Judy, told me she had fun watching my expression while he was singing. :) This is the first time he has sang in public for many years. I'm sure this ward won't allow him to stop singing; he really did a number on himself! ;)

OK.. what else has been going on? I have also been working on my family routine. Though I have made only a couple of minor adjustments in the infrastructure of our home life, I am excited to continue pondering and improving upon this. I'm sure I will be sharing more with you about this... as family infrastructure is something no home can manage without; and I feel I have valuable experience to share in this area. :)

I have also had many short and sweet moments to treasure... I need to write about these! I hope to do a little more writing, a little more consistently from now on. :)

See you again soon!
Corine :D


  1. Glad to hear you've been livin life with your fam. Balance is definitely important and family and home comes first. We'll be happy to see you here when you pop back from time to time. :)

  2. Thanks Valerie! ~ I'm happy to see you, too! :)

  3. So happy to see you back! It sounds like you are doing many of the things that I am doing. I teach RS every month. It is my favorite calling ever!! So glad to see you back. Just set limits and keep them. I don't write on the weekends and keep those for family time. That helps a lot. I have to be careful because my husband gets grouchy when I spend too much time writing! Good think he loves me!!


There is a ripple effect in all that we do; what you do touches me, what I do touches you...

THANK YOU for your comments; you add so much insight and brighten my day! :)
