Treading Water

Many of you may be wondering if this Blog is still active - that's a good question.

Last week some things rocked my world - tragic accidents, loss of people who shaped much of my childhood, a friend losing her husband in a car accident, big changes at work.

So I wrote nothing.

And I went sailing.

I spent the weekend lazing about in the Bay, talking about life, getting a little too much sun, and drinking champagne. It was so perfect.

And now I am contemplating lots of things, not the least of which is, "Do I have time for this blog?"

My Blog friends have been an amazing source of support, entertainment, comfort and encouragement over the last 14 months. At the moment I am overwhelmed with work, life, and contemplations to put it out there in the blog. Plus, knowing Ken reads this, sometimes I am not ready to share my personal thoughts with him. He insists on trespassing in my life. I could make this blog private, but choose not to do that either.

So my faithful bloggy buddies, for the moment I am not sure where this is going. And I miss reading all your blogs, too. Truth be told, I just haven't had time.

Thanks to all for your concern, your emails, your support. I hope to post some this coming weekend when I am looking forward to a little "ME" time.

Sorry to hear you have had a really rough couple of weeks! Take care of you.

Persnickety Ticker said...

Take your time. We will all still be here.

Mostly.

I say that because I wasn't all "here" in the first place.

Peaceful and positive vibes being sent to you.

JO said...

I'm sorry to hear that things haven't been so great for you. {{hugs}} coming at you!
Life sucks sometimes and, like Suz said, you do what you have to do.
Take care of yourself and those around you...we'll be here...on the ready for whatever you need....'cause that's the way we roll.

You need to do what is best for you and your family. Your health (physical AND mental) needs to be your top priority. That said, I will miss you terribly, but I understand completely :)

You gotta do what you gotta do.

I keep having these blogistential thoughts, too.

Damn, I think I coined a new term. One of us should use it in her next post.

P.S. Things will get better. They always do. Take care, meanwhile. I'm thinking of you. And my iPhone is thinking of your BlackBerry.

Jenn @ Juggling Life said...

Sounds like your world has been rocked.

We'll be here if/when you're ready to come back.

I'm sorry for what you've been dealing with. I think it's great that you're taking time for yourself! Good luck with whatever you decide.

Margo said...

I think it's important to take time when you need it. It's just common sense. Everyone's lives ebb and flow, and as early adopters of blogging (in the scheme of things) people need to set a precedent. I'm going on vacation in a couple of weeks and I'm shutting down the joint and blog about it all later (maybe, if it works) You're always gathering material and you can go back and write about it in blog form if and when you choose to. Sorry about your difficult time. Take care :)

A shout out from NC in support.

Ken is now an outsider to your life by his choice and can only peer in from outside, probably wishing he was still a part of your life. Say what you want about Ken, but know that S and A are reading this as well, so snarky comments about him can create problems.

Visit you soon, I hope.

I get quiet too when things get crazy. Nobody wants to read a bunch of whining from me, so I don't share it.
and my word verf...apropos for your comment about the virtual stalker:
focke - focke what he thinks, he can no longer partake in the parade that is you.

Myra said...

I'm so sorry to hear what your last week held for you. I'm sending a prayer your way tonight. Take care, and I'll be waiting for you if you decide to write again.

The blogosphere will wait. Take all the time you need to grieve and process so much change.

3 Peas in a Pod said...

Wow, I should cut and paste your post onto my blog. Life has been crazy for me too. I'm getting a divorce and my husband started to read my blog which is why I quit writing...for now.

I hope everything is ok with you. My bloggy buddies carried me through so much they didn't even know it. Hopefully one day soon I can get back to it and I'll have started my new life by then. I hope you come back too. We'll be waiting for you on the other side.

Much love from NJ,
Sue
