I Just Wanted You All To Know...

That I may be MIA for awhile.
I don't know exactly how long it will be.
It could be a couple of days, or even a month, I just don't know for certain.
As some of you may have noticed my posts over the last couple of month have been a little sparse.
And well, not really me.
Or at least, that is how it feels to me.
Right now with everything that has been going on in my life and still going on, I feel like I am being pulled in a million different directions.
And all I am accomplishing is to fall father behind on everything.
I need try to get a handle on life.
I will be on to announce the winner of my giveaway, which will be ending soon.
I will still be taking part in Tricia's swap, which I signed up for.
And I am enjoying on working on my swap package for my partner.
But I wanted you to know that if you don't see any comments from me, I honestly am not ignoring anyone.
Im just not online, like normal.
As I have mentioned before, with my job I am on call from 6 am to 6 pm.
And for awhile, things were slow.
But lately, that has changed.
I feel like all I have been doing is driving.
I get home and I'm so worn out.
Funny, how just driving can make one so tired.
Then I still have all normal mom and housewife duties.
Now, add on the construction we are getting ready to begin.
And with Spring beginning I have yard work and Spring cleaning to get done.
I could go on, but I think you get the picture.
I'm sure things will settle down soon.
And I will get back to normal and back to my blogging.
Until then,I hope you all won't forget about me.
;)
Thanks for stopping by!

Take Care,
Tam

Sounds like you really need a break, we all get that way sometimes. And we just have to stop and take a breath to get our lives centered again. Take some time for yourself and your family.

Tam said...

We will all miss you, but you should just relax and enjoy life, everyone just needs to slow down, I haven't been able to blog much lately and kinda feel guilty about it but thats not what blogging is about. I enjoy crafting and blogging as a hobby but when i start to feel overwhelmed and rushed to do it it's time to stop for awhile. Enjoy your time off

Tammy, make sure you take some time for you, that is so important. Life sometimes just gets so busy, I hope yours settles down soon and I look forward to your post when you get back at it.

I really do understand what you are talking about here. I'll bet most everyone does. "Real life" before blog world just means you are tuned in to what matters most and first. Take care of you and yours. I'll be thinking good thoughts for you during your construction process. (Been there, done that, survived it!)
Blessings to you. :)
P.S. And I really appreciate the heads up that you won't be around - I would have been looking for you!

Hi Tammy,
Yes I'm sure we all understand where you're coming from and wish you all the best!
I am still trying to get back into the swing of things and it's been over two months since I've moved here to Savannah from New York.
I am still hoping to catch up on life and start sewing again.

One day at a time!
Blessings,
Audrey

Penny said...

Yes, a little time off is good for the soul. Rest a bit, and catch up on life's daily routine... My best to you and we'll all see you on here again soon!

Cabin Fever Primitives said...

Tammy, You have touched our lives and will never be forgotten. Life is such a fragile thing, gals like us tend to cram as much as we possible can into it. Every now and then we have to "stop" and smell the roses, be content in knowing that we can not do it all. That is the hard part, saying no but in the end peace of mind and peace with family and God are what matters. You are not alone, we all know your struggle and will support you.
May our Heavenly Father wrap his arms around you this morning, giving you Strength and Peace.
Sunday morning Hugs,
Connie

Wendy @ Ravenwood Whimzies said...

Hi Tammy - Yes, I have noticed that you haven't been yourself lately, and I can only hope and pray for things to return to normal for you. Adding the stress of a demanding job and regular household duties certainly makes for a busy life...and we all understand if you need to be away for a while to tend to Life! That is what is most important. Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you.
*HUGS*
