I hate feeling like this. I don’t like it when I can’t maintain my carefully planned schedules. I hate when clutter infiltrates my life. I feel overwhelmed when I have so much on my to do list that I need a separate list just to keep track of what isn’t yet on my to do list.
It’s not even that I’m overly busy, but sometimes life just gets in the way of best intentions.
I have worked hard in the past 11 months to create a blog of which I am really proud. I have enjoyed the ups and downs, the growing pains and the successes. I’ve read countless new books, discovered several new authors, and found numerous new bloggers and tweeps, many of which I am happy to call friend.
Lately, I have fallen behind in my reading and blogging. I can blame work – I’ve had to put in an extra day each week for the past month (my only day I have off to myself). I can blame family – I’m a wife and a mom of two young monsters, and we have a busy schedule. I can blame the holidays – Thanksgiving, time off from school, Christmas, parties, shopping, cards, etc.
But the bottom line is that although all of those factors contribute to the craziness in my life, I realize that sometimes I just need a “time out.” Even though I enjoy reading, I found lately that I prefer to be visiting with friends and socializing rather than reading, and I only have so many hours in the day. However, my wonderful little blog is being a bit neglected. For that, I am a sad.
I apologize to my wonderful readers that come to me for reviews, opinions, interviews and book talk. I hope that after the holidays are over I will be back up to speed and putting out 2 or so reviews per week. I know you all have big hearts and hopefully will stick with me as I try to figure out a happy medium in my life.
Thanks and Happy Reading!
