Something Had To Give!


For almost two months I've been burning the candle at both ends - in other words I'm super busy and I seem to be meeting myself coming and going. Don't misunderstand me, please, I'm not any busier than anyone else but....................................


With all that's on my plate my blog has been on my mind:
I'm not posting as often as I'd like, I'm not responding to comments, I'm not visiting blogs as I'd like. This is causing some stress because I'm feeling a bit guilty. So something had to give and after much thought I've decided that I need to take a hiatus from my blog.


I have many saved e-mails containing comments and when I drop into a chair rather than making another mindless yo-yo or taking a stitch on my Polka Dot Girls I'll respond to your queries and comments but I ask that you be patient. :-)


And, lastly I'd like to ask that you not forget me because I'll be back! :-)


I remain..............

In Friendship!

Darlene, Darlene, Darlene, how could I forget you? Now really! You take good care of yourself, the blog will always be there. Not to worry! In due time all will settle. I'm still waiting for you to show up with your mud boots! LOL I've got mine all ready. Did I ever tell you about those boots? Real authentic farmer boots, the best kind! Of course if they had a pair with Thomas the Tank Engine in my size, it'd be a toss up! ;o) ((((((((Dalene))))))))))

Maria said...

But I just started reading your blog! How can we be breaking up??? I ordered Polka Dot Girls because of you!!!

Actually, I know just where you're at. Too many projects and too little time. Just do a quick post once in a while, so we can be inspired by all your projects.

And don't feel guilty! Blogging is not an obligation! It's supposed to be fun.

Suze said...

We all need a vacation from something from time to time, even things we enjoy.

I will sit here and stitch till you return and think of you fondly as I do.

JUST A MOM said...

I bought those little critters too....

Judy said...

Take a good break, but remember that it's perfectly okay not to feel guilty! I'll keep checking in on you regardless!

I think as women we always try to be so gracious and always say thanks... but really we get ourselves in trouble because we try to reply and comment back to someones comments. Kind of like writing a thank you note for the thank you note! Take care of yourself!

The Jen said...

I love your little sewing room buddies in that photo. They're very cute. I hope you get that big to-do list checked off. ~jen~

kjquilts said...

I'll be waiting for you!

Vicky said...

Sometimes work has to come before fun. We'll be waiting for your return, and will want to hear all about it! (Hugs)

Rhonda said...

Don't worry about it. When I'm busy with my mom, I don't know if I've come or gone.......LOL!

Mar said...

are you ready to come back yet? miss you already!

Teresa said...

Hi Darlene,
Hope you are getting some needed time to do what ya gotta do and a few things you just want to do. Blogging is fun, relaxing and should always be stressfree, guilt free! We will be here when you come back, and anxiously awaiting to see how many jars you filled with yoyo's.
