two week break

So my kids go back to school in 10 days... where did the summer go??? The last few weeks have been hectic and crazy and overwhelming, and I have really struggled with being down in the dumps!  I really feel like God has been prompting me to focus on my kids these last few  days before school starts, so I am taking a Two week blogging break... this is also going to include twitter and facebook because they are huge time wasters for me!  Would you pray for me? the temptation is going to be strong!

I have never been one of those people that loved coloring or playing with kids, or doing anything that makes a mess.  I get super sleepy when I read out loud to my kids and I don't have much motivation for walking or exercising.  So I am really not sure what we are going to do to fill our days over the next 2 weeks (although I do need to do some school clothes shopping with the girls... but who wants to do that?)  So to prepare for this 2 week break, I actually scheduled some posts to pop up for all my faithful readers over the next two weeks.  Most of them are re-posts from my old blogging site (Xanga). So please stick with me, feel free to comment and I will try to get back to you after we get into the swing of our school schedule!

I am posting this on Monday, so I did want to count some more of the 1000, the infinite gifts before I started my bloggy break!
