Just so you know...

I'm beginning a self-imposed blog break today.

I feel like there are more demands on my time right now than I can possibly meet if I'm using precious time to write a daily blog entry.

In the next couple of weeks, I've got to move back into my kitchen, (organizing as I go, since this is the perfect time to really plan out how my kitchen should work,) finish Christmas shopping, get three Christmas trees up and decorated, supervise the finishing of the remodel, make sure my kids stay on task with homework and other obligations, wrap all the presents, plan two birthday celebrations, do some Christmas baking, train the dog, clean the house top to bottom once all the construction is done, stay on top of laundry, etc, etc, etc...

I just need to remove the distraction of the computer for a few days.

I will be checking my email - once in the morning, and once at night, so I can still connect with people that way, but for now, the blog is officially on hold - at least through next Wednesday. Call it a fast from blogging, if you will. A blogfast.

My break will also include reading others' blogs - so if I'm a regular at yours, you'll know why I'm missing.

Thanks for understanding. And if you don't understand, don't whine about it.

I'll be back, I promise.

But in the meantime, I've GOT to be productive in my real life world.

Talk to you next week, friends.


  1. Brooke4:20 PM

    Why 3 trees? Can you give one of the kids the chore of doing laundry or at least the folding part? Sounds like you need some help. That is a Buttload if I've ever heard of one. Hee!

  2. OK... maybe I am with ya on this one... I understand but I will miss you! :)

  3. Okay - How many of us will be
    checking (just in case ) ? ? ?

  4. WOW! That is some major will power you have. Good for you! I may have to do the same thing when I travel out to the PNW. I'm already freaking out about losing touch with my bloggy friends. Cathy, I'll miss you, but I admire your dedictation to the things that are your priorities. {{{HUGS}}}

  5. Blogfast with breakfast!

    Good luck on all your tasks (training the dog sounds like the most daunting one, to me)~

  6. I will miss you but like you - I have felt that something does get left on the back burner to long and that frantic feeling because you aren't doing your real life well is just not worth it. I stand with you in making the blog thing stand down for a moment, just so you know who is in control....good luck and many blessings - see you in the new year.


I love it when people talk back...
