Blogging Break

Just now, as I was blogging, my son got into two new presents I bought for some friends (they both just had babies a few weeks apart) and ripped open the envelopes to their cards and was about to rip open the presents (luckily they were in bags). At the same time, my baby son was crying incessantly, and my oldest daughter was playing around on the cat tower (which is a no-no in our house).

I'd like to say that this is uncommon. But whenever I get on the computer to blog (or to read a novel, or go to the bathroom, or get on the phone), my children think this is now free reign to destroy the house.

So...BIG BREATH...I'm taking a break. I won't be blogging for a little while. I'll probably read a few blogs, but I don't think I'll be commenting. I need to take a break and reprioritize my life a little bit. Or at least work out a schedule for myself so that my blogging time won't interfere with my mommy time. I'm sure when school starts it will get a bit easier (finding time).

I'll be back. I promise!

Cheryl, I think it is a good idea to take a break every once in awhile. I try to only get on at night when my kids are in bed and maybe once during the day. It helps.

I totally understand. I usually just get on when Rachel's napping or after the kids have gone to bed. Hope you can find your balance and be back soon!

OK, I totally get taking a break. I love going on vacation and on purpose stay clear of computers and its nice to just not get caught up in all that computers draw you into. As for myself, I only get on during naptimes and at night, otherwise my kids go crazy, I go crazy, and that's not fair. I occasionally jump on at random times if I have a few minutes like right now, babies in bed, 3 year olds playing with cars, house is relatively clean, a quick jaunt through the blogs..
