Needing a little break.

Hello my wonderful bloggy friends.....

I'm in a season of life where my creative pursuits are needed in other areas than my home as the school year winds down, my daughter graduates, and I finish homeschooling Jason.  I also took a part time job at a bookstore to help a friend, so my time to play at home has been severely limited.

Anyway, I've not posted 'cause there's nothing to post!  So sorry 'bout that.   I'm going to take a break here for a bit, til I have some time again to work on the house.  I have some big plans, but they'll need to wait till school's out for the summer.  I'm also dealing with some personal stuff that kinda has me in a tailspin, so I really need to give some attention to myself and my family.  I hope you'll understand. 

Make it 4 Monday will return after my break.  I hope to pop on and read up on your blogs as time allows too.  I just won't be posting much, if at all.

Thank you for getting me thru this winter with your sweet comments and support.  I hope to return with renewed inspiration and fun stuff in a few weeks or when life allows me more decorating and blogging time.

peace,
cindy

Cindy, we understand.
Just wanted to tell you again, that I LOVE your site's new look. It is so warm, calming, and inviting. So pretty and charming. Love love love it. You outdid yourself here. Wanna do mine? Ha. Mine's busy, but for now it works.
Praying for you as you get life's busyness done for now and take time with your family.

I never begrudge anyone a break - they are so important. I hope that your break refreshes you in every way possible.

Petite moi said...

Cindy, I'll miss you so much!!! But life is like that sometimes...Return as soon as possible!!! :D
Take care..and job in a bookstore is like wow! I even love the sound of it. One of the places I definitely will want to work in, for a while. It was like that for me with instructing aerobic. I do these things as summer jobs, usually. But it is all that I want to do for such short period of time. And then I never look back. Just to say: "CHECK" :)) Anyways, bookstore and Starbucks are definitely on the list.
Never mind...so the point is that I am waiting for you to come back with lots of html hugs :o)

We all need a break now and then. Isn't it funny though that we feel the need to justify it, I always feel so guilty if I don't get around to blogging or commenting. Bleck. Enjoy your time with your family! Hope everything is ok, you will be missed!

Catherine peacelovesweater@blogspot.com said...

Blog-land will not be the same without you! I will miss you greatly. I hope all is well with you and your family, and will wait patiently for your return.

Hugs,
Catherine

You just take all the time you need. We'll miss you, but we'll be here when you get back. Sending good thoughts your way! Camille :)

I don't know how I missed this. I am a BBB (Bad Blogging Buddy)! I do know how it is when real life kinda bites you in the buttocks and leaves you sore. Take all the time that you need. I am sure that everyone will be here when you return. I do know that this is so not getting you out of a monster shopping trip! Let me know when you have time and I will get it set. If you need someone to talk to remember that I am just an email away! Lucky that I have gained so much weight lately, I got a big shoulder to cry on! I will miss you oodles. Still love ya though!

MWAAAAH!

Twice Remembered said...

Cindy, I completely and totally understand. Sometimes it's just kind of nice to go and tackle projects and life without having to be concerned about making it a blog entry! Enjoy your time off!

~ Regan said...

I think we could all use a little break! I don't blame you for doing what you need to do for yourself! Although you will be missed, I hope you enjoy your 'time off'. :)

Its So Very Cheri said...

We will miss you--let me know when you are back up and running.
