I’m Taking A Break…..

Hey there bookworms. Let me get real here for a second. My life is busy. My husband and I run two businesses on our own, have two kids (13, and 8), a dog, a house, and me with my blog. I’ve gotten used to juggling tasks! I’m usually doing 4 things at once and I know that they will get done…. eventually lol. But the last few weeks have been a little too much. Our businesses are getting busy (seasonal ups and downs), and it’s just me and my husband running the show. I said yesterday in my wrap up that we’ve been able to run with the punches, be productive, and stay on the bright side………. until yesterday……. I finally broke.

I’ve stretched myself thin for so long, it’s best for me to take a step back. There comes a time where it’s not healthy or productive to keep pushing yourself to the max – and I’m at that point. I need to take some time for myself to regroup and get back on track. Unfortunately that means that the blog is the first thing to step away from. I feel so awful not even having the chance to respond to comments this week! And that stress and guilt is weighing too heavily on me right now. This week I need to focus on my kids (who are home for spring break), and the businesses.

Fear not! Top 5 Tuesday will still be happening! I have my post written and will make sure to update the list as soon as I can on Tuesday! But other than that, I’m on hiatus until Monday March 18th.

I’m sorry for slacking so much lately. I really hope that by next Monday I will have had the time to relax my soul and get some sleep. I want to be back better than ever!!! Thanks for your understanding! I hope you have a great week filled with 5 star reads!

Until next time, happy reading!

  5. Take all the time you need! I totally get it too, I also have a tendency to take on too much sometimes and it does catch up with you after a while.

  8. Take all the time you need! Read some books and don’t worry about the reviews! Do something BESIDES reading books. Take some me-time! Despite your handle, you’re not a machine. πŸ˜‰ We’d rather have you happy and healthy, even if that means we get less of you.

  18. I totally understand and can relate. I feel like I also have been juggling a million things and need to take a break soon. I am glad you are taking some time for yourself and spending time with family. At the end of the day that is the most important thing.
