Taking a break

I can't believe it, but after more than 600 posts, I'm feeling a bit burned out on blogging. There are posts jumping around in my brain - like one about seeing David Sedaris give a reading at Austin's largets Sounthern Baptist mega-church last night - but I just can't seem to get them from my brain to my computer.

I'm just sort of overwhelmed by life and everything it involves right now - three medical emergencies in less than three weeks will do that to a person - and I need to hunker down and focus on what I HAVE to accomplish each day.

It's a shame that this has happened to me right now given that I currently have 40 readers each day, which is a record high for me. I hate to take time off just as I've gained new readers, but I hope everyone will come back when I snap out of my bloggy funk.

See you in a bit.

Hope your bloggy break is a short one! I'll keep checking in too! Take care of business and write when you can!

Also - Three Medical Emergencies? HOLY COW! I hope everyone is ok!

I had to do that a few months back...felt like I had overcommitted myself to blogging and was letting other things slide because of it. So I took some time off and now I only blog once a week or so and only selectively read other peoples blogs. Its kind of liberating and my kids are happier that I am not always tapping away at the keyboard! Good luck and enjoy your break.

I'm guessing most of your readers are like me and they have your blog as an RSS feed. When you start blogging again we will notice.

Relax and enjoy.

So, I totally understand. You haven't seen me much lately, have you? Working on a post about it right now, as a matter of fact. See you soon.
