Please Stand By Or Jane’s Feeble Explanation For Needing A Break

I know you’ve noticed. You were just too polite to say anything.

Ever since my kids went back to school I’ve looked forward to more time to write, more time to read. It hasn’t happened.

Life has hit Chez Jane’s at full speed ahead. Each month, no make that each week, I’d say, “Ok. This week I’m going to have more time for blogging. I mean it!”

Ah, that road to hell…

Please know I’ve been meaning to visit you. Please know that I miss visiting you. I just haven’t been able to. Personal. Financial. Schedules. Projects. Death. Illness. It’s all the same excuses you’ve heard time and time again. Only this time, you’re hearing them from me.

So, I’m taking a break. Here and in real life, too. (In real life, I’m visiting my most favorite place in the world with my kids. Yipee!)

I might be here to read a little but I’m taking my mandatory two-week break from posting. The Blogging Authorities (in my head) are demanding it. They say I’ll lose that two-week blogging vacation if I don’t use it before the end of the year. There are no roll-over weeks in Blog World, apparently. (And the mere fact that I’m actually listening to the fictitious Blogging Authority voices in my head is a clear indication that I need a break. Clever little highlighted calendar patterns be damned!)

For ten days I’ll be completely computer free. So, don’t take offense if you don’t see me around your neck of the woods. It’s not personal. It’s just me. Needing a break from technology. Needing to focus on fun with my kids.

I will enjoy my break. I will come back, energized and refreshed.

In the meantime, you can look at this…

Or you can have more time to read your other favorite blogs. Have fun! I’ll see you when I return!
