The Learner Observer


I get it, you guys… I’ve been a bad blogger.  Every week I post the Weekend Winners (actually, I failed to even do THAT last week), and you’re all like “ummm what happened to posting about the things you’re doing, Thalita?” And I’m all like “ummm, life is kind of crazy right now, people!”  We all go through it – these transitional stages of life when you feel a little less like this…


and a little more like this…


But in all honesty, the busy-ness has all been thanks to great changes in our lives, so I am by no means complaining, just explaining my lack of blogging and trying to justify my lack of posting to myself.  Also, do you find that as soon as the weather changes, your whole life changes too?  When it starts to get cold we I start to lose touch with neighbours and become a hermit – confession: the dog goes out for way less walks too.  When the sun starts to give off some warmer rays, weddings start to happen, people are outside, and suddenly there is no time spent inside the house.

For us, it’s been a time for social events, celebrations and some life changes – Alex has some new responsibilities at work, and I am nearing the end of working 2 jobs, 6 days a week thanks to the end of the school year.  Folks, being a substitute teacher has taught me SO MUCH!  That’s probably why I’m so tired all the time… so again, I’m off the blogging grid for good reasons.  Just so you know.  Have I justified enough yet?  Is it enough to say that I have some big things happening this month and through the Summer that I am very excited about?  I hope so.

Thanks for coming in to check on me even though I have been distant.  Seeing that I actually have hits on the blog when I check the stats every now and then warms my heart and lets me know there are people out there who actually care – that’s YOU!

Thank you!

Those two words never seem like enough, but it’s all I have for you at the moment.

P.S. – Weekend Winners ARE happening tomorrow… I love sharing all the goodness other bloggers have to give, and I hope you like it too!

    I totally go through this too! I feel like a lot of the time I’m working away on things but for weeks at a time it won’t be anything worth posting about. Looking forward to seeing your weekend winners!
