So work. Yeah. It’s been way too much for the past month and a half. It’s eating into family time, sleep time, personal time and of course blogging time. I thought for sure it would be settling down into manageable hours again by now but it hasn’t. It looks like it’ll continue at this frenetic pace for another few weeks.
I’m tired of feeling like I’m failing at everything. Catching myself repeatedly checking my email on my phone while hanging with my brother on Sunday before he heads back to Australia for two years. Skipping Bookclub because I was too tired. Missing Junior League committee meeting because working late. Grabbing takeout for dinner (again) because don’t have time to grocery shop. Trying to enjoy reading books on the floor with Skylar while sort of just wishing I could faceplant and fall asleep. Feeling guilty that yet again I didn’t get a photo or type up a post for the blog.
I’m tired of being tired, not closing out my to-dos and then feeling bad about it. Something has to give. So I’ve decided to take a little blogging break. I’m going to give myself permission to take three weeks off and not worry about posting until after Labor Day. I know that means I’ll lose traffic and clicks and readers and $$ but at this point my sanity is worth it.
Hopefully though, a few of you will stick around, won’t mind the break and will check-back in here in a few weeks. 🙂
Maybe check out some of my favorite bloggers in the meantime?
