Hi Ladies n Gents,
In the spirit of keepin' it real (and hopefully not just whinging) ;O)
A personal word (or 2/3) ;O) to those of you who are kind enough to check in here regularly. My posts will be a little more sporadic (in time of day) and I'll occasionally be taking a day or two off (perhaps without advanced notice, sorry.)
I've really been struggling to maintain templates & tutorial etc... I haven't said anything, because I've felt like saying so was being ungrateful for your kind visits here & for all of the opportunities that I'm so lucky to have. (I also feel like a broken record...and am such a perfectionist, that I'm embarassed to admit I can't do it all and then some... LOL.)
Anywho, long & short of it is that I'm still very sick. My lung infection hasn't cleared and my energy levels are really low. I'm trying to strike a balance in caring for our home (and cooking regularly so we eat healthier & detox.)
I am so very blessed, personally; Charles is amazingly supportive. (He's the only reason it's possible for me to blog so much instead of working a paying full-time job--which our finances sorely require LOL...but I hope to start a small business venture soon. ) Blogging involves a lot of sacrifice for him, so I want to be sure to make our home more comfortable & work more on our health.
I know you'll understand a day or two off without this preamble, but I just wanted to explain. This blog is so much a part of my life and my connections with you all are so meaningful that I wanted to keep it "real."
Awards & Emails:
I've hesitated to announce this because I feel bad about it, but here it is...
If you have been generous & thoughtful enough to give me an award, I thank you so very much. I'm honoured but I can't keep up with posting them, and so in fearing that I might leave someone out, I've decided to just have a policy of "I love ya for it, I'm grateful, & I appreciate it, but I can't post it." If that sucks, I appologize. It's been a real source of guilt for me (which I know I create all by my-own-self for my-own-self)... so I'm trying to narrow that feeling down in my life.
If you've sent me an email that hasn't received an answer, please consider sending it again. I sometimes lose them in the structure of my gmail account (and with not being able to keep up...)
If any of you have advice on how to balance this all (blogging, emails, tutorials, templates, blurfing, cooking tips, or where to acquire a spare set of arms... whatever... LOL) I'd love to hear your thoughts.
Thanks so much for listening to me,
