I Need a Blogcation
If you haven’t noticed, things have been a little slow around here the past week. Well, the problem is, you see, that I actually have a real life (sorta)…and I’ve been a little busy. I said that I’d never catch up after my trip to FL in January, and while I’ve been posting steadily…that’s turned out to be true. I’m so behind on things.
If you didn’t catch it on The Giant To Do List or my 101 Things in 1001 Days…my house is a mess. I have so much to do and so little time (and energy, and motivation) to do it. The clutter (while mostly hidden behind closed doors no one goes into) is starting to create mental clutter…which makes for one tired, stressed out, mommy (and is not the best for blogging either). I haven’t been sleeping well lately. I’ve struggled with insomnia through the years and had a few really bad nights last week. On top of this Adaline is still struggling with severe diaper rash and constipation issues. So, things haven’t been exactly fun or “cool” around the Cool House lately.
Cool Daddy and I are finally sick of the mess and we just have to do something about it. All of our spare time has to be devoted to conquering said mess…and it’s going to take a long time. This means that I’ll need to give up blogging (or at least reading blogs) and Cool Daddy needs to give up naps and tv. I know, it sounds awful, right?! Nonetheless it needs to be done.
This is the official “warning” that I may not be around for awhile. I’ll try to get at least one post up a week…but no promises. If anything my posts may all turn into a bunch of boring…”here’s the junk that we organized this week” posts. Doesn’t that sound like fun?!
The biggest change for those of you who are fellow bloggers is that I probably won’t be reading/commenting on your blogs for the next month or so. I read way too many blogs as it is and I just can’t keep up with all of them right now. I’m not unsubscribing…I’m just taking a break. The more you comment on my blog, the more likely I’ll stop by yours…because your link will be right there and I’ll stop by to return the favor. Otherwise, you probably won’t hear from me until May. If I get the time I plan on posting a “shout out” link post to my favorite blogs that I comment on regularly.
I’m going to keep this post pinned to the top of the blog for awhile. If I do post something new I’ll add a link within this post for those of you who are too lazy to scroll down 😉
