Summer #MilitaryMon Linky!

I think I’m going to call this the exhaustion edition! It isn’t so much the parent-of-newborn lack of sleep…I have three kids under five so…sleep? What’s that?

It is more that I bit off more than I could chew! I set aside time this summer so I could work on some personal projects and then I just took on too many other things. I have a Smart Summer Challenge over on my education blog and I am a community leader over at the Random House Kids Read & Play Summer Fun Community.

In the interest of my sanity, I think I am going to take a break from posting the linky weekly and leave this one open through August. Hopefully this will give me more time to put up some other posts here that I have planned!

A few reminders:

  • Please check out and comment on each others’ posts…that’s what makes people want to come by and leave their links! Comments are catnip to bloggers!
  • Please leave the URL to a SPECIFIC post (or posts…you can add more than one), NOT the main page of your blog.

The linky is up ALL SUMMER! So, stop by anytime!

Having trouble adding your link? Add a comment or tweet @ArmyWivesLives and I will add it for you!

  • In the “URL” field, please place the direct “permalink” to A SPECIFIC POST, NOT to your main page of your blog. (e.g. “” NOT “”)
