And Whatever Happened to the Weekly Quotes???

Same thing:  returning to school disrupted my routine and I never got into a rhythm that gave me space for all of the usual things.

However, just as with the “wondrous words,” I continue to collect quotes and it is my intention to resume sharing them in January.  If I were to try to back-track, catch-up with the backlog of quotes, no doubt we would all be overwhelmed.  So my intention is to share them a few at a time.  It will be odd to see books I’ve read weeks and ever months previously.  Better that than try to shove them all into one post or even a few posts.

And I may move the weekly quotes to Monday, leaving room for "Friday Randomness" to also return, should some randomness come my way.  I sort of let that drop to the wayside as well because there were too many things happening on Friday. 

The end of the year is not that far off and I’m still trying to get all my ducks in a row.  I think it may be time to trade out the ducks for something more linear.  Like ants.  Ants march in a long straight line, don't they?  Only, I don't like anything with more than four legs so I guess I'll stick with the ducks.

Whatever Happened to My Wondrous Words?

During school I gradually let go of a few things, including “Wondrous Words Wednesdays” and “Weekly Quotes” but I’ve still been collecting both.  I’ll be creating posts to update beginning with the new year.  This way, when school starts again, the posts will still be there and I’ll have time to build some more posts even when I don’t have as much time to create them. 

So expect a return to some of my routine to begin with the new year.  I also plan on making time for movie and television reviews again but not sure that I’ll be doing that as a monthly or weekly thing just yet.  Monthly is so much content.  Then again, weekly is not unlike trying to do weekly wondrous words and quotes so I have to come up with a reasonable compromise. 

Still on the fence with the upcoming changes that blogger is forcing upon its users.  I’ve already said it would be a deal breaker if the problems I encountered when I first switched to the new dashboard haven’t been fixed.  While I wasn’t holding my breath, I was somewhat optimistic.  But then I had the problems with “following” and now I’m not feeling overly confident in blogger’s fixing things that are wrong.  After all, I can’t be the only one who thinks something is wrong when someone can’t un-follow a blog that’s been deleted.  I mean, seriously, how hard is it not to follow something that isn’t there (or going anywhere)?

But I guess I’m optimistic enough to be making plans for next year.  The only reason I’m not holding my breath is because it would make me feel dizzier than I already am; and I can’t cross my fingers because it’s really hard to type when my fingers are crossed.  Believe me.  I’ve tried.  It’s a mess.
