I told myself I needed a month away from the blogosphere to catch up with life and things at home. Does the blogging take time away from other things I could/should be doing? Why yes. Yes, it does. I now know that for sure after being away for over a month. It is however, a choice I make. I'm shocked though. Shocked that I've been gone for more than a month. Shocked that I didn't feel the need or urge to blog at all in that time. Shocked that I didn't/don't miss it. The desire to write is not there at all these days -- I seem to be suffering from some writer's block. Funny thing is, in the absence of reading blogs or writing posts, I haven't even been voraciously reading books. Truthfully, I still feel the need to be away from here for some more time. I'm not mentally setting a time frame this time, so who knows, I might post next week, or I might not. I might not even post until September :oO! I will eventually start posting again. I need to do so for my children. I want them to be able to read these posts and remember the things that we did, or they did, the fun we had, to remember the life we live(d) -- good stuff and bad stuff. Hopefully by the end of the week I will post some photos of what has been happening over the past month or so. There doesn't seem to be a day that goes by where I'm not going somewhere, attending meetings, or transporting children to and fro during the daytime. It's a crazy, busy, full, life, and I truly am exhausted by the evening, but I wouldn't trade it!

I think of you all often! Be blessed!



  1. Enjoy your time...if you are taking pictures you'll always be able to jog your memory to blog about it. ;)

  2. I've missed your posts, but I absolutely understand the need to take some time off. Enjoy!

  3. You're a busy girl, Deborah! I'm so glad to read that you are doing well, zipping along with your dear family. Sending love!

  4. miss you!! I understand, though, and know how hard it is to juggle it all!! Blessings to you and your dear family!

  5. Glad I chose today to see if you'd posted anything! Love all your pics in the post above. :) I thought I would miss blogging, but I haven't at all. I've been busy "finding myself" ... doing things I never dreamed I would (will have to tell you about that privately sometime). Enjoy your breaks!

  6. Deborah, thanks so much for this. I have been forcinbg myself to think of blogging, but have sadly absolutely nothing to say! I did miss you very much, but I think you're right. Time sometimes just is for a break. Maybe I'll catch up on everything I haven't been doing- like posting books...

  7. I enjoy seeing your pictures, and looking at your posts on fb. It's keeps me caught up, in your little world. :)

    I also took a blogging break for a week or 2 last month, and starting posting again after that. Now that we have 5 days left of school, and projects are due - I took another one.

    Crazy, busy lives are exhausting, but just like you - I wouldn't trade it! :D


  8. Thanks for checking in--I've missed you! But I understand the need to take a break. I've been sporadic in my own blogging this spring, needing to attend to other things. Take your time, my dear. We'll wait!



Thank you for sharing your thoughts. I love to hear from my readers!
