Even though I've been a blogging slacker for months, I couldn't resist participating in the Ultimate Blog Party 2010 from 5 Minutes for Mom.
Although I enjoy blogging and have met so many wonderful and talented moms while doing so, I found that I started having a very difficult time juggling everything and doing it well -- sound familiar?
I'm entering my 2nd to last semester before earning my B.A. in early childhood education while working as a nanny for a terrific little boy about to turn two! For the past two years I have taken three classes each quarter without a break, but in 10 weeks I am taking the summer off from school before doing my final internship and one other class in the Fall.
I can't tell you how wonderful it will be to get bits of my life back; spending more time with my family; getting back to blogging and keeping up with my many favorite bloggers; and continuing to delve into my family tree. I keep saying to myself...10 more weeks...10 more weeks...
Thanks to the Ultimate Blog Party, I'm taking the time today to jump around a bit and find some new blogs to follow -- hope you find some too!
If I am lucky enough to win one of the great prizes from the UBP 2010, my top three would be:
US1 or US2 – Win a $150 shopping spree at Pedal Cars and Retro Collectibles or A Rocking Horse to Love from 5 Minutes for Mom
US74 - a $30 Gift Card to Amazon.com from A Full Cup
Others that would be great to win if those are chosen: 60, 56, 7, 19, 14, 77, 27, 23, 52, 31, 32, 37, 15 or being a practical person, any of the gift certificates to Amazon, Walmart, or Target would be wonderful as well. Thank you!
