I've Been Away...

I'm not really sure, but I might have just broken a record here. "The Longest Caitlin has Gone Without Blogging." It's been well over a month. Bad me.

I used to wonder how people could just abandon their blogs. Blogging has been such a huge part of my life for the past couple years, I never thought I would be one of those neglecters. "oh, well... life has just been so busy in the past two months... I'll try to catch up with this thing soon..." and never comes back. Fortunately, I have come back.

The sad thing is, there have been numerous occasions in the past month when I've thought, "Oh! I should blog about that!" But I never have. And now I don't remember what they were. They were probably preschool stories.

Speaking of preschool, I'm ready for summer. I love my class. I love my job. But I really am ready for a break. Since our Spring Break, I've felt pretty out of it. I show up in the morning, and sigh "Ah, Mrs. Barnes! I have no idea what to do today." Then we determine if all else fails, they can color a picture. Unfortunately, most of them don't like to color a whole lot. I usually figure something out. I'm know for my creative genius. lol

This month, I've gotta get Mother's Day stuff together, and prepare them for the little end of the year presentation. I'm gonna play my guitar for them, while they sing "this is my commandment that you love one another that your joy may be full." They love it. On top of that, we have like two birthdays every week this month, which means we're probably going to have an unusual amount of cupcakes and cookies. Oh dear.

In other news, all glory be unto God, who is prospering my humble little Etsy shop. I really didn't think it would ever take off, but I'm up to 18 sales now, and the majority of them have come within the last month. And, then there are 3 custom orders I'm working on at the moment. Everyone I've worked with is so nice, and patient with me. Not like I'm becoming a bajillionaire or anything, but it's exciting to discover that people all over the world like what I make, and want to buy from me. ^.^

Also, Daddy's been feeling a lot more like himself since his last stay in the hospital. Praise the Lord for that, too.

There is so much to thank Him for. It's sad how sometimes we lose sight of how many blessings He's given us. But if we ask him to open our eyes, and let us see how even the things we consider "bad" are blessings, we can truly be overwhelmed with how rich we really are.

With that thought, I'll end this post. I'll try to be a little more faithful in the near future. :) For I do have things to talk about. I always have *something* I can talk about, as those of you who know me are well aware.

And so, I wish you a happy Sunday.


  1. hey there! I hope your dad gets better. My dad got some bad news a few days ago too. He needs a liver transplant. :o( Summer is coming soon! I wish you the best of luck with the little angels.

  2. Hi Caitlin, since I started blogging I've found it quite addictive, even though I'm older than the average blogger (54). It is absolutely fascinating meeting some of the Christians online that I've contacted. Apart from talking to Christians, there is a reason for the contact, too. If you ever enjoy reading Christian novels, may I suggest one to try? "Outcasts of Skagaray" is a fantasy adventure written because I felt strongly about the plight of abandoned and unwanted children in the world. So I wrote a novel in which they were saved by God and used to change the society that rejected them. If you want a free preview, shows sample chapters and comments.
    I would be thrilled if you read it, but whether or not, I greet you as a sister in the Lord. I too have to remember what the implications of calling myself a saint are. Blessings.

  3. I loved reading about your experience with the little cutie pre-schoolers. ...Oh and I am available to come by and help to eat any extra cupcakes! :) hee hee

    CONGRATS on the Etsy's always a great feeling for sure!



YAY! I'm so glad you're leaving a comment. ^.^
