The Centre. Can. Not. Hold.

I really love blogging.

I thought I would tell you. Just in case you couldn't tell.

I've been at it for two and a half years now and manage two blogs. Admittedly, some days better than others.

And I am very conscious of the fact that if you blog on something approaching a semi-regular schedule, they will come. Of course, the converse is equally true. If you don't ... they won't.

But as I posted in my Under the Weather post, I have not been feeling well as of late. Really not feeling well. Not a simple cold or some other type of virus. But a major flare-up of a chronic health condition.

And so it as that life is piling up at the moment. As is, not coincidentally, the pile of stuff on my desk about which I would like to blog.

So now I ask the very serious question .... What's a middle-age woman girl to do?

And the answer, in all honesty, is that I don't know.

Obviously, this is about stuff a lot more serious than just blogging. [She says with no small amount of chagrin ... just blogging, indeed. Sacrilege!]


Two teenagers. Both running in very opposite directions at the moment.

A house. A home. A family.

I've been to the doctor. We've played with my meds. [Yes, doctor. More drugs. Please. More drugs.] So for now, I suppose, we wait and see.

And so it is that I ask my semi-regular following of two to stick this out with me. I want to keep this up. I really do. But, for the moment at least, it just doesn't seem doable.

I will still, no doubt, be found at my regular haunts (you know who you are). But as for own blogs ...

Now having said that, I could well be back in a day or two. Bright-eyed and busy-tailed. Or some variation thereof. So, hey, if writing this post ironically results in my "cure", I'll be the first in line to cheer. But if not ... all I can say is that I will be back. Eventually.

Until further notice then.

Life has a way way of demanding your attention sometimes. If you need time for health or family by all means take it without guilt. When you're ready to write, we'll be here. Regardless, I hope you feel better soonest!

As my boss said to me recently (yes, my boss) as I fretted over being out sick with my own chronic health condition flare-up - you are focused on the wrong priorities.

Leave the blog(s) alone. Take care of yourself and your family. Those are the only priorities that matter.

We'll be here. Thinking about you, worrying about you.

And hoping you focus on the right priorities.

so sorry that I am not part of your semi-regular following, tending to curl up and feel sorry for myself alone instead...I could take a leaf from your book!
Glad things are improving now, and praying that continues. will try to be more faithful.
But--Farmville....well, I CONTROL that!
