I’ve got to do it, folks. I can’t keep up. I can no longer raise my children, care for grandpa and grandma, feed my family, blog, garden, be a friend/wife/mother/daughter/sister/yadayada, and can quarts upon quarts of tomatoes, peaches and grape juice. Something has to give and I’m sad to say that at least for now, it’s going to be blogging.
Let me give you just a wee bit of background.
I’ve been feeling it the last few weeks. I’m flying about my kitchen, snapping at my family, and barely keeping up with the garden. Poor Brad comes home to a cranky wife. I’m trying to write blog posts amidst all of this.
A little more background.
Two months ago we planned a little getaway for my birthday. Monday I was running from this to that. Canning peaches. Simmering tomato sauce. Tying up lose ends with grandpa and grandma. Attending a meeting that was held in my own kitchen all the while canning more tomatoes. I was trying to accomplish a week’s worth of work in one day. Not fun.
Tuesday morning we dropped the kids with my parents and drove to the beach. Three days and two nights of absolutely no plans. It was delicious. Restaurants cooked me my food. We rode bike and lounged on beach chairs. I even went in the water (big feat for me…I hate the stuff…even showering is a dreaded task).
Anywho, I barely checked my e-mail those three days and I only looked at my blog once. ONCE! Unheard of! I typically stalk my own blog by either type-typing away at new posts or looking for new comments. And I realized I need to stop. At least for a while. I’m going to miss all of you. Maybe I’ll check in occasionally with a fabulous new recipe but for now, I’m done with the daily posts. It’s just too much.
Enough with the excuses. I’ll see you all around here and there. I’m not dying here, just backing off for a little. I hope you all can forgive me.
And with that, I bid you adieu. Love to you all!
