I Need A Break

I stopped into Pickles on Pizza's blog today and there it was.....Angela said what I have been wanting to say......she said, "I am not in the mood to blog!" I totally understand. Have you ever felt that way?

I have so many things going on right now. Blogging the way I like to blog takes a lot of time, and I just don't have the time right now.

I am super busy at work and when I get home, I'm actually tired. I want to sit and chill out, eat dinner and then sit and chill out some more....or work on other things I need to work on.

I am starting to make things for Tresa's baby shower, and it's so much fun...but it also takes time.

I am trying to restock FourDogDay and that is very time consuming. I love making the things, but there is so much more to it than just that.

I had another health scare and I am waiting for biopsy results again. I had to have a D & C and once the results come back...I will write about it. Things look good, but we'll talk about it when I know for sure.

It's summer....I want to help Irv with the yard. In fact, I promised him I would and I never break promises.

We leave on our mini vacation soon and I haven't even thought about what I need or want to take or what we really are going to do when we get there.

Do you see what I mean?

So, if you don't see a post from me every single day...know that I am here. In fact, I'm probably reading all of your blogs...I just might not be commenting as often. I just need a little extra time to get some other things done and to enjoy the summer.

I'll be thinking about you each and every day, and knowing me...it will be a short break. No, I'm not having a melt down, I'm really quite cool and calm.....I just need a break and I am giving myself permission to take one! HAHA!

Certainly understand that...I don't post everyday. Sometimes because of time restraints and sometimes because I can't think of something to say. Go have a good time!

It's the summer slowdown, It's hit us all. It's perfectly fine and you'll write when the moment is right.

Hope everything is ok.

That's why I take weekends off from the blogosphere. Balance. It's good!
Take care--I'm glad you're having fun making new things.

Good for you! I have found that writing 2-3 times a week and posting a Wordless Wednesday photo works for me and keeps me connected. I still read every day and comment.

Take the time you need and I will be sending positive thoughts your way.

I understand the time constraints. I'm needing to complete two baby gifts, finish up some beading projects, work on next semester's classes, and the list goes on...

Some days, all I have time to do is read everyone's blogs. Other days, I post but don't have time to read. I've given myself permission to be a little bit more relaxed so I can spend time with my husband, the cats, and my gardens.

I so understand. Summer is a busy time for everyone. I'll be here whenever you have time to post.

totally understand. in fact, i have these great thoughts in my head and then when i sit down to write them out, i think nah, i'll do it later and post something else, or just read and not post at all.

enjoy your break!

I read everyday and try to comment too........but I never post everyday! Just do what is best for you!! We are here for you!! I am going on vacation next week and probably will not even take our computer!! But if I do, I think I will just set aside a certain amount of time say 30 minutes or an hour to be on it and that will probably be at the end of the day.

Angela said...

Oh I am glad you added the part about "not having a meltdown" I should have added that too :) I just want to relax and enjoy for a bit-

it has been nice!

I'm a very sporatic poster so can understand completely. Even when I think I have something to say I don't always take the time to post. Enjoy

Joanna Jenkins said...

Not to worry-- Posting every day is A LOT of work (and something I've never been able to manage). Timeout and balance are good things.

Hope your health scare resolves itself easily and soon.

RELAX!

I can't remember the last time I posted. I'm in a blogging slump. Take a breather, step back and relax. Enjoy.

It has been nearly a month since my last blog and I could use all the same reasons you gave. And I am not in the mood. I have been very busy with family things.
I still follow your blog, no matter.

You definitely need a little break from blogging. Blogging takes a lot of time: it's posting, reading people's stuff, commenting. During summertime we are also more outdoors than indoors, so naturally it becomes a bit difficult to keep up with it.
Anyway, whatever you decide to do,have a wonderful time!
