The Plan

This past year has been a pretty bumpy road around here and I think it's finally starting to take it's toll on me - both physically and mentally.  So, my plan right now is to back off for a while and reassess the entire situation - blogging is one of the things included in the situation -  among other things as well.

Seems that the further I go the behind-er I get with everything!  I'm going to take a little time off and see what happens.  Who knows.......I may come back like a freight train - or it may be like a slow moving boat to wherever (like it's been for the last couple of months).  Only time will tell I suppose.

Please don't give up on me just yet though and thanks for stopping by.................
Lynn

Lynn take as much time as you need my friend. Your health...mentally and physically should always come first.

Monica said...

Oh Lynn, I have been meaning to email you as I could feel what you have been going through... telepathy there.

Which ever way life goes, just be kind to yourself and I am going to miss you loads. My followers have reduced commenting and now with you going, it ain't going to be good for me, but I will survive. Lol. I did not know that blogging was such an uplifting activity for me.

I will never give up on you and know you will come back to blogging.

Much love,

Monica

I went through my own ups and down for quite a while now, and I know just how you feel. Will be keeping you in prayer Lynn, and I look forward to when you return, refreshed and back to yourself again. Hugs.

Chriss America Real said...

Hello my sweet friend. I am so sorry to hear that you are overwhelmed. I went through the same thing in about March. Taking 2 months off changed me completely. I dealt with the problems in my life and came back even stronger than before.

One of the things that I have not done, is join a design team since I have been back. I feel that working on the projects that I want to do and in the time frame I have to do it, works better for me. Not to say that I will never join a design team again, but for now, I am enjoying creating without time limits. Wish you all the love in the world. Chriss

Susan said...

So sorry to hear that things aren't any better! I'll be thinking of you! Hope things smooth out again soon!!

KT Fit Kitty said...

Oh, Lynn, you have definitely had a tough year. This blogging thing takes up a ton of time. I wish you the very best with whatever you decide to do. I send you positive vibes and hope things will work out okay for you and I hope Jim will be okay too. Sending hugs as well... I will not give up on you!

Carol L said...

You know I'm not giving up on you Lynn! Take all the time you need for yourself, and I'll be here whenever you feel up to blogging again. If you decide not to, you have my email and I hope you'll keep in touch! Take care of yourself- I'll miss ya much!

Jeanette (Forest Ranger) said...

Lynn, I wish you well in your break... and do hope you find the peace you need. HUGS!!!

Barb said...

Lynn--hugs and prayers to you! I will not give up on you either and hope to see your beautiful cards in the future!

Darnell J Knauss said...

I know it's been such a struggle for you, Lynn. You have to find what works best for your time and your sanity and, of course, your happiness. We will be here when you come back and I'm never more than an email away if you want to keep in touch personally. I am keeping you in my prayers. If you miss us too much (I'll miss you!), come on back any time! Lots of love and hugs, Darnell

You do what you need to do, to refresh yourself, and get all over the back problems and anything else you've had going on. We'll all be here when you feel ready to come back to blogging. Take good care of yourself. Big hugs.

I know it has been a rough year Lynn, rough for both of us. So just take it day by day and do what you have to do. I for one will never give up on you and I'm sure no one else will either, just look at these comments!! Big hugs my friend, we will get through these trials and tribulations. Brenda

Margaret said...

Love you Lynn. I hope things will ease up for you and Jim over the next several months and you'll be able to get back to your creative side of live. Prayers and many hugs.

Marilyn said...

It's tough to try to juggle everything sometimes and the sad part is that when we try to de-stress, we usually end up setting aside some of the enjoyable activities because we have to prioritize. I get it totally and of course you must take the time off and re-group.

You and Jim have been through a lot this past year so now is probably a good time to take a break and just 'breathe'.

I'll send you an email later...

NanaConnie said...

So good to see you popping by my blog today. Will be sending you an email in the next couple of days with update on my world.

Lesley said...

I completely understand and hope that taking time out will help you to recharge your batteries, but I will be thinking of you none the less - take care my blogging friend - hugs Lesley x
