On Taking a Break

Its summertime and I’ve been in need of a break.  I’m learning the balance between work and play, remembering I’ve only got 18 summers with them, but also knowing I need a little time for myself carved out in there too.

Summer1 Taking a Break

Something had to give and it ended up being the blog for a time.

I’ve still been working a little and will have a few projects to share with you at some point.

I’ve been reading a ton (summer reading is the best!) and want to share those with you too.

But we’ve mostly just been going to the pool, staying up too late, watching too much TV, and taking a few little trips here and there.

I’m stunned when I realize June is pretty much over and before we know it school will be back and the busyness and schedules will start up again. It’s funny how seasons are like that.  Ever-changing.  It’s been nice to just relax into this one.

So I’m still here.  Just doing my best to soak up this summer.  Giving myself permission to take a break.

    They do grow up too quickly and so it is important to enjoy every minute possible with them. However, they don’t disappear when they turn 18! You have a lifetime ahead of you as their mother. I loved raising my girls and now I love having daughters who are 30 and 32. They still need me, love me and we are so close.

    After reading several more articles on the topic, and re-evaluating the output at Webmaster Tools, I'm wondering if my contact page is causing the "soft 404" because upon submission of the form the user is redirected (via php "header("Location: /thankyou.html"); ). This line of code is part of the sendmail script and an important function for the user, providing "thank you" message and navigation options, etc. I'm not excited about removing this. Maybe there's a better way to present the new location.
