No Facebook. No blogging. No Twitter.
Gasp, I know. But, I feel like it is the best thing for me right now. I've been having a hard time balancing everything. I need to focus on my family and on making our home a slice of heaven on Earth.
I'm afraid I've been doing too much of this:
and not enough of this:
So, for the next month things will be quiet here on the 'ole blog. I will still be posting pictures to Instagram, because I feel like it is a good way to chronicle our normal, everyday lives and I like doing the Photo-A-Day Challenge. But, I will not be updating my Facebook status, Tweeting, or doing any blog posts.
During the month as I do different projects and things I will take pictures so I can potentially share them with you at a later date, but I make no guarantees. We'll see how things go for the month, and then maybe I'll start blogging again in February. Or, maybe not. Who knows?
I hate to just *screeeech* put on the brakes like that and stop blogging, etc for a month, 'cause I've put so much time and effort into this blog, and I feel like I never complete anything I start (which is part of my problem), but I think I need to put more of my time and effort into those things that are essential--caring for myself and my family.
I've also been having a hard time lately with feeling bad about myself because I'm not as good as so-and-so, or post as much as so-and-so, or not as stylish as so-and-so, or as creative as so-and-so, or take pictures as pretty as so-and-so...you get the picture.
They say comparison is the thief of joy, and I'm robbing myself left and right. Maybe by unplugging from all the craziness online for a while I can get my head back on straight!
I will be checking my e-mail periodically, so if you need to get a hold of me, drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org. Other than that...see ya in a month!!
