New Day--New Start--New RSS Feeds

Happy Inauguration Day and Martin Luther King Day!  Thankfully, we were given today off and I've been able to watch a bit of the Inauguration while I work on switching things around a bit on my blog.  It's been too long!  I'm hoping that I'm getting the mojo back again, because I hate that my blog took the fall for all of my burn out.  When you have a demanding job/life, it seems that the things you enjoy end up taking the hit so that you can keep on plugging!

Things are good now and I hope to chill out a bit over the coming five months.  I have just burned out almost beyond repair!  Last summer I not only taught a large online class, but I started the summer off helping teach the teachers about our new common core that we've adopted, going to an online conference in Idaho for my online job, attending an online conference from home for two days, and teaching the first session of summer school.  I've learned my lesson.  I can't do all of that during my break and be okay to head back to school full-time in the fall.  Emotionally, physically, psychologically, and spiritually, I have to take a time out and breathe!  This year I vowed to myself that I won't be doing half of those things during my break.

Today I'm working on getting some things cleared up, like old feeds, etc.  Yes, I was still using Feedburner.  I've now switched back though, so those of you who have subscribed to the feed should be fine.  If you have subscribed by email, I no longer have that service, so I apologize.  I hope you'll still follow me here!  If you see any issues with it posting, let me know and I'll dig around a bit to see what I've missed.

Thanks to all of my friends, family, followers, and faithful readers!  Here's to a great 2013!
