Stepping Away for the Summer

In the last few weeks, I’ve really begun to ponder things and what I’m doing. I’ve been going full force since August last year and have dived head first into blogging after being burned out last summer. I think I’ve come to the summer doldrums once again and am going to be stepping back to focus on my most important responsibilities, my kids.

Our credit is great since we don’t have anything out there but our mortgage and a Kohl’s card that we don’t use but for the discount… I will have to see about the mortgage again though, thanks for the suggestion!
