Why I've been MIA....
So, I know that I've been MIA from blogland, but really, truly, I have a valid excuse!! For the second year in a row, I have chaired the book fair at the girls' school. Although it is a very successful event, it takes up all of my time for the week and a half - there is delivery, then set-up and decorating, then teacher preview day - then the weekend to recouperate - then the book fair is all week 8am-3pm, plus one evening during the week then open again during our Fall Family Fun Night (which is super crazy busy). We usually raise a fairly good chunck of cash which we turn back around into book credits (which double our take) and put more books into our classrooms! It's a win win situation, but I am usually dead tired by the end of the week. It iw worth it and I love doing it, but it doesn't leave me any time for myself during that week and a half, so I apologize to both of my readers!!
