Two days off & all I’ve got are excuses

I apologize for my sparse posting for the past week. It’s been a strange week.

After a lovely weekend with my parents, I took a day off Monday (more on that later). I spent the rest of the week feeling like I was catching up. Isn’t it always that way after entertaining visitors or traveling all weekend? There’s grocery shopping, laundry, cleaning, writing … all of the things I normally do on the weekends that didn’t get accomplished. I’m continually amazed at just how productive my weekends are, and it’s never more evident than when I don’t have the time to get anything done.

I’ve also been dealing with some personal issues that I may or may not explain in more detail at a later date. It’s nothing too serious, just some stuff I’m working out in my head. I’m doing my best not to let it affect my ability to keep up with my blog on top of my responsibilities as an employee and wife. Rest assured, I’m not going anywhere, but if I don’t post for a day here and there, that’s why.

I love this blog, but it’s a lot of work. And when I’m feeling overwhelmed, it’s unfortunately the first thing to be put aside. I wish it didn’t have to be that way. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if the things we love the most could always be our top priorities? Wouldn’t it be even better if there were enough hours in the day to get it all done?

On Monday I’ll resume my regular posting schedule, and I’ll try my best to keep it up throughout the summer. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

    No worries! It’s great that you love blogging so much and feel an obligation to your readers to provide us with fresh content all the time.

    But you have a life. And there are more important things than updating your blog, and we understand that. We’ll be here when you get back.

    Thanks for the support! :) Like I said, I’m not going anywhere, but if taking a break isn’t an option I fear I may succumb to blogger burn out. It’s so great to know I have such wonderful readers who understand!
