Taking a Break

sorry closed

I’ve decided I have too many irons in the fire and not enough hired help. There’s the spring cleaning, end of school year activities and a few writing projects. Never mind the usual stuff — cooking, laundry, work, etc. – that I never seem to be caught up on.

Maybe if I didn’t spend quite as much time on the computer I’d get some things done. So I’m closing up shop for an indefinite period of time. If I know me like I think I do (and I do) it won’t be a long hiatus. Just long enough to check some tasks off my list.

    *echo-ey scream fading off into the distance (reminiscent of Buzz Lightyear falling down the elevator shaft in Toy Story 2)* “NOOOoooooooo”And yet, I completely understand the need to go ‘unplugged’. In fact, when and if we move this summer, I’ll probably take a bit of a hiatus myself.Bloggyville simply won’t be the same without you…but go in Peace. We’ll still be here when you come back. 😉

    Jen, we all need that “break” now and then to just savour life and not watch it go by from our computer. I get this and I know you are making the most of the time you need for you. I miss you since I’ve been on my own holiday..and look forward to your return. Thanks Todd for the up-date!!

    Hey, time away is good for the soul, Jen. I took six weeks off and actually checked off some items on my big, hairy, audacious to-do list. Let me know when you’re back ;)Jill
