I'll be Gone 'Til November...

 (the modes4u giveaway goes up tomorrow and will be up for 2 weeks. I'll check back to announce the winner then ;))

With an EXTREMELY heavy heart, I've decided to put this blog on hold until Nov. (maybe later) I love blogging, love all of my friends and readers but I just can't do it anymore right now. I've got so much stress in my life right now and I just need some relief. It sucks because as I look over the state of my life right now, the things I love most are the things I'm having to put on hold but the shit that stresses me most is what I have to focus on now.

I promise I will be back...I love this blog and I want to keep it going and make it even better but right now I just don't have the time or energy. I just don't know how to juggle it all with a full-time job and I can see myself slipping up and not keeping my word and being pulled in every direction and flaking on my friends, so I'd rather take a break than to keep doing that. I'm sorry if this post is a bummer but I'm just sooooooooo sad right now. It just feels like everyone else can have a million things going in life and still come out on top. I just feel like I'll never know or understand how to balance my life out so I end up hyper focusing on one aspect that makes me happy and ignoring the rest because I just can't deal with it. Does anyone feel me on that?

Anyway, if you want to be featured on Cute Stew and have emailed me, I will keep your email and pick up when I get back. If you are expecting a prize from the last giveaway, it's coming! I only have a few left to send so please know I haven't forgotten you and I'm sorry it's taken longer than I expected :( Also, I have Blythe commissions booked for the rest of the year so I will have to update on my Blythe blog to keep them updated so I'll still be around kind of...just not like I want to be...


later guys...

Enjoy your time off! I hope it is refreshing for you and you are able to come back ready to run again! I love your blog!

Kim said...

I'll miss you lots- but I feel the same way some days- it can all be a lot to keep up with. I hope you get some rest and I hope you have some fun for yourself on your break :)

I'm sorry to hear things are stressing you out at the moment. You remind me of myself. I focus on the fun things to ignore the bad things. It's good you are focusing on the stressful items now so that you can feel the relief of dealing with them and making them a thing of the past. Sending you a cyber hug and I hope that things tame down some. Look at it this way November isn't that long away and you will be able to come back fresh and hopefully stress free. And as for those who seem to be able to do a million things and be on top of it all, they let things slip trust me. They just don't blog about it. You aren't as bad off as you think you are. Deal with your issues and we will be here when you come back.

I can definitely understand. This morning was the first time I had logged into blogger in 2 months and I'm not even sure that I'm ready to pick my blog back up again yet or not. Sometimes real life calls us away and there are just other things we have to concentrate on. Don't worry though, we'll all be here when you get back :)
