So Long, and Thanks for All the Friendship

Thus begins my summer sabbatical. Ironically, ’tis also my third Blogiversary.


I’m visiting a few blogging friends before the tech-free boat departs, then I’m sailing away till September. I’m very excited. I have my notebook, my unruly crew of five boys, and some reading to keep me company.


See ya soon!

        No, sobriety is how I tame my bonkers. The husband says I am the only person he knows that is like Tigger on crack without any mind altering additives.🀣

    Ah, Chelsea, have fun!!! And I was tickled to see your reading selection. I hope you enjoy. What a treat to take a long tech break. I know you’ll return refreshed. Happy Sailing Away!

    Sounds wonderful! I hope you have a great summer. I’m impressed that your blog is only 3 years old, with how popular it is! But really, it’s no wonder. 😊

        It’s these pesky last-minute bloggers who won’t let you getaway.
