Time for me to get real here. I’ve spent the last two weeks going back and forth on a lot of things to do with the blog. After a lot of thought (and even some tears), I’ve come to terms with the fact that 2020 is the year that kicks my blogs ass. I tried for months to keep it going and put way too much pressure on myself. I can’t do it anymore. This doesn’t mean that I’m done blogging!! I couldn’t leave this special place on the internet and all the people that are a part of it!! I do however need to take a step back, let posts come when they will, and not have anything that I need to be responsible for at the moment.
So – I own two businesses. They are both fishing related and since a lot of people have time off because of Covid, we are swamped! It’s so busy! That’s a good thing, mind you, but it’s also demanding and exhausting. Not to mention that the second business just increased production and I now need an assistant, clone, or AI being that I can train to help me work and also clean my house on the side….. clearly i’ve read too many sci-fi books lol. The kids have also been home since the beginning of March and aren’t going back until September at the earliest. Point is – I’m strapped thin and going crazy.
As much as I love Top 5 Tuesday, I can’t handle being responsible for one more thing, especially with work being as crazy as it is. I think for a few minutes that “I can do it” and “it only takes a few hours out of the day”, and then it all falls apart. I end up wanting to rip my hair out because I’m stuck working and know that I have a post to update! Work comes first – it always will. Blogging is just my fun little hobby where I talk about books and reading.
Here’s the plan – there is no plan lol. I would love to say that I’m stepping back for the month of June and then I’ll be back in full force for July. As the whole world knows, nothing is set in stone and everything is up in the air right now. In Canada, things started opening back up a little so I’m fully expecting a second wave to come along at any moment. Things can change quickly and I don’t want to get my hopes up that I’ll be back. Keep your eyes open towards the end of June and I will give you all an update then.
If you’ve read this far, then you deserve a participation medal! LOL! That was a lot of word vomit. Before I sign off for the day I just wanted to say a huge thank you for all of the participants who join in with me on Tuesday’s! It started off as me wanting to make a list and then all of a sudden I had people wanting to participate. It then turned into something that I’ve hosted for a few years now and have so many lists to look forward to each week! If all goes well then we will be back in July!
Until next time, happy reading!
