Reading... Writing... and Fallin' Apart at the Seams

I'm stinking it up on blog writing this year.  You want to know what I've been doing?  Well, here it is in no particular order:

{Reading} - Dear Hubby (and every other person I know who contributed to my birthday cash this year) bought me a Kindle Fire.  In one month (quite literally, I received it on December 14th) I've read: Water for Elephants, Twilight (twice), New Moon (1 1/2 times, I skipped chapters 3 - 16 the second time around - ahem), Eclipse (twice), Breaking Dawn (twice), the entire trilogy of The Hunger Games, and I've started The Last Song by Nicholas Sparks.  I also read about 10 chapters of some book called something like "The Red Suit Diaries" and got bored and gave up on it.  Like I said... I've been reading.

{Rekindling my love for writing} - By, uhhh, not writing.  You know, not blogging.  I've wanted to write a book - a real book... one that people would read - all my life.  So I've been daydreaming about characters, plot and climax far too much.

{Starting a work - out regimen} - Because, let's face it:  This girl still has ten or more pounds to lose, and I'm not doing any good wishing it away.

And mostly:

{Basically falling apart at the seams} - Like.  For real.  Of course I'm not going overly in depth with anything online - but it's been a rough go, to say the least.  When a whole load of responsibilities was ripped away (with Christmas being over and family being gone), I immediately realized that I'm overwhelmed, with life in general.  There's a lot of work and a lot of 'rehab' to do to repair what I've let crack into my being... but realizing it is the first step, right?  Right. 

So - if I'm neglecting you, it's because my priorities have to shift to help myself, to help my family... and though I won't desert you completely... the blog sometimes has to take a back seat. 

Who knows, maybe I'll have a book to show for it someday... I'd love that.

Until next time...



  1. Yes, indeed! Sometimes a blogging break is good for Mama, and everyone.
    So, I heard-tell there is a wedding in Illinois at the end of March that I'd like to attend (Jen's sister) so you know, if you want to skeedoodle up there for a few days, we could car pool!!!

    Take care, friend.
