Early to bed, early to rise...

Will make me tired anyway. I spoke to my boss today about cutting back on my hours to spend more time with my daughter, and the good news is that I was able to rearrange my schedule to allow more down time and for me to be here when she gets home from school--even better, I'm not having to take a cut in pay to do it. Sometimes the powers that be are good to us. :)

However, it will also mean adhering to a stricter schedule than I'm used to, as well as going to bed earlier and getting up earlier. I've also laid out a new plan with my daughter about changes that need to be made around here, and while it might be difficult at first, in the long run it will be far better for both of us. What this will also mean is that in the short run I'll have less time for blogging, but in the long run, more time for writing in general. So, while I had good intentions of running daily themes, I can see that won't happen. I'll still try to do "Magical Mondays" just because I find the reminder of small miracles to be inspirational, and hope others may find some comfort in them as well. :)


  1. Kate, I'm so happy for you! I remember having the same conversation with an old boss. I ended up getting three day weekends, normal hours Tuesday through Friday. It was amazing, and made a world of difference in my writing schedule too. Good luck. And I love your idea of Magical Mondays. I'll see ya on those for sure! LOL.

  2. No cut in pay is good! Fantastic news, and while we'll miss the blogs, getting things organized for a happy home life is much more important. And I love that you're carrying on with Magical Mondays.

  3. Very happy news! I'm glad you're keeping Magical Mondays. Although I don't have many stories like that to relate, I do enjoy reading yours.

  4. Great news, Kate! I'm so happy for you! I love your Magical Mondays, so I'm another person who's glad you're keeping them. The blog I'm writing for Thursday on Magical Musing is based on your Monday blog. :)

  5. Thanks, everyone! I'll be sure to check out your blog then, Edie. :) (Of course, I would have anyway--it's one of my daily reads.) :)


Say what you will...
