Dragging my feet

I seriously did not want to come here tonight.  Like I did everything in my power not to come to this space.  I even put laundry away.  I mean, how sick is that?  It was really freaking hard to stop and pull up the blog.

Life has been so full.  It's been messy and chaotic.  It's been rewarding as well.  But right now I'm a lot burned out.  I haven't done a single thing to decorate my house for Halloween.  And it just occurred to me that Halloween is Thursday.  That doesn't include the fact that there are toys in every room of my house. Dishes stacked.  Room mother and Daisy troop leader duties to do.  Who am I?  How did I get so damn over scheduled?

I guess it's the time of year.  I guess it's what happens when you live a full life.  Really live and let everything else fall by the wayside.  Sometimes that just has to be ok.  And for now it is.

This week, you will see that this space isn't updated as much.  It's not that I don't have anything to share, but I've got a lot of life to pack into the next week.  And when I'm under pressure, my writing sucks.  It's that simple.  Sometimes the words flow, and I can sit at the screen for hours.  But right now it's a struggle, and that means I've got to slow down, and breathe.

I'm also planning on taking a two week break.  I know what you are thinking.  There have been many bloggers stepping away from their blogs lately, and you may be thinking I'm going to do the same.  Yes and no.  Blogging can really take a hold of you.  By the throat.  Many bloggers make daily posting look easy, and seamless.  It's anything but.  However, I'm taking a little break to work on a project that I've been saying I'm going to do for awhile.  And the first two weeks of November seems like the right time.  I may need more time, but for now, that sounds good.  And don't worry, I will be posting more of my short story on Saturdays.  I'll be sure to let you know about those.  

For now, I love you guys, and I never want this place to feel like work.
So until it doesn't feel like work, I'm going to be dragging my feet just a bit.


  1. This is so important! Seriously, finding that balance makes all the difference in our lives. I've often done the same and the only reason my blog hasn't been completely empty is often because I've got a few posts scheduled to throw up while I'm gone.
    I hope that you enjoy your little break and your time away. xo

  2. I totally agree. Do what you gotta do lover! YAY that you are still writing and posting your short story!! #fistpumps
