Blog Schedule

I post on Monday with an occasional random blog thrown in for good measure. I do my best to answer all comments via email and visit around on the days I post.

Time to Slow Down

I've been going at a pretty hectic pace here, what with the A to Z challenge and my 100 Random Followers Contest. On top of that my emotions have been a roller coaster since my mother's death. Not only is Mother's Day coming up, but her birthday as well, it will feel strange. Now I'm getting ready to go to the islands. I'll be leaving in a little over 2 weeks and be gone until August. So much will be happening while I'm there this time around. Memorial services, a family wedding, my 40th class reunion.

I need/have to take a break from blogging. I have things scheduled for every Monday and Friday while I'm in the islands, but for the rest of this month...I will probably not be out and about much, if at all.

I want to thank all of my old and new Random Readers. I hope you will revisit me and post a comment when a blog pops up. I may be able from time to time to visit with you while I'm in the islands, but I really can't guarantee anything. We'll just have to wait and see what happens.

In the mean time, just for all of you...Beautiful People...by Melanie

  17. I meant to enter your contest, Bish, but never got around to it due to a CRAZY work schedule.

    You're smart to take a break. I'm going to do that pretty soon myself. I'll see you again when we're both back, recharged and ready to go. Have fun in the islands!

    Your blog is so great it is perfect for re-reading.
    I'll scroll through your island stories and think of you there sharing your days in the place and with people you love!
    Have a wonderful time!

  24. I totally understand a need to take a break! I take them all the time when I'm hitting my writing hard. There definitely needs to be a balance between the two, doesn't there?

  25. Wishing you peace and healing in the days to come. I've been down a team member due to maternity leave and so this past month has been a blur of too many demands and not enough sleep. Roland

    Sometimes life gets in the way of the Internet.
