A Little Housekeeping

We've been here a little over a month now and we've learned some things about how blogging fits into our schedules. Thanks to the hit counter that The Guy installed, we've learned (and were pleasantly surprised!) how many of you are stopping in and when you are most likely to do that. With these things in mind, we wanted to let you all know that we are making a few changes in the blogging schedule. You probably don’t care; you probably wouldn't even notice but we feel the need to announce our intent.

See, we don't really like change that much, but what we really hate is running up on a change that no one has apprised us of. You know how it is. You go to the Clinique counter, whip out your empty tube of lipstick and say, "I want another one just like this, only not empty." Then you get the bad news. They're not making it anymore, but not to worry; she can give you something that is the same. Well, that's a lie. If it was the same, it would be the same. So we aren't going insult you by pretending the schedule hasn't changed.

From henceforth, meaning until there is a reason to do otherwise:

will blog on Mondays and Wednesdays instead of Tuesdays and Fridays.
Plotter will blog on Tuesday and Thursdays instead of Mondays and Thursdays.
Fridays will be "What Are You Reading?" day. There will also be some surprises on some Fridays. We don't know what yet, but isn't Friday a good day for a surprise?

We're a little late to the table with this but in our very first blog entry we promised that someone would win a box of Godiva chocolates. It goes to our very first commenter, Shawn. Shawn, we promise we won't be as long getting it to you as we were in announcing it. We know where you are.

We don't have a question today, but talk to us anyway. Be sure to check in with Plotter tomorrow. She always has a question!


  1. Change is good. I love your site and I doubt you could improve on it (already being fantastic). Go for it girls!

  2. When I read today's title, "A Little Housekeeping", I thought you were going to give out some handy dandy tips on how to clean without actually having to DO it! LOL I was getting all excited. :D
    I don't always get to comment, but I read and I think it will be great whatever you do to it. :)

  3. SWEEEEET! I've never one something from blogs before.

    Thank you!!!


  4. Cheryl--You are so sweet! And we missed you at the luncheon.

    Sherry--I don't know how to do it without actually doing it. I once read in Real Simple magazine to burn lemon candles and everyone will think you dusted. I'm not sure how that works if they can write their names on the furniture.

    Shawn--You are a winner in all aspects!

  5. I read a housekeeping tip once that said if you only have time to mop one room to be sure to mop the one where guests would enter your home. The theory was that the guests would see smell the clean smell and see the clean floor so they would think you mopped all of your floors.

    I guess that is a little housekeeping
    tip. :-)

    You all are so wonderful to encourage us and our blogging adventure!

  6. Good lord. I've never WON something from blogs before.
