Sharon speaking! As the official keeper of the A Little Something blog, I just wanted to reassure everyone that it hasn't gone away--although I did.
The last few weeks have found me up to my eyeballs in lesson planning that went on throughout spring break, then battling an outbreak of shingles, and then attending a conference in New York City. Truth be told, I probably spent more time in my hotel room trying not to lose my mind from the shingles outbreak than I did actuallly attending conference sessions and meetings.
I only mention this because I know there are some of you out there who check in with our blog on a regular basis. Since I am the designated blogger, I feel it would be remiss not to let you know that this particular activity--and my hands-on participation in the crafts project--are a bit difficult for me to handle at the moment.
I know, I know, you're thinking "Why doesn't someone else take over for now?" Well, our project is just a little, little bit on the back burner, but only for a week or so. Anna was sick and then had to go out of state to help her mom who fell ill and was hospitalized. Susan had the flu and then laryngitis, and despite her best efforts, has had residual issues with a bug that just won't let go. Even Haiffaa and Khadiga have had some serious health problems in the last month. We're collectively a wreck!! My doctor hinted that perhaps we've all been pushing ourselves too hard, but I, for one, have chosen to ignore the possibility of "busyness" being our shared health hazard.
We may be down, but we're not out. I have to fly to Florida next week to help my mom who is going to have surgery. I hope to be back in the swing of things shortly after that. Stay tuned--our big field trip to the bead show is coming up late in April and that should be an adventure well worth blogging about!
