As you know I have taken a partial hiatus from the blog.
This is not to mean that I have left the blog completely, or course not, but I have chosen to pull back on the amount of items I have tried to do for this blog for the time being. By this I mean that I have not accepted any new Requests to Review books, I have not written any new reviews, and I have not signed up for any new blog tours.
I have, however, been continuing with the Monday Musing Posts, any blog tours I had previously been signed up for, and new Cover Reveals as my time permits.
The reason for this cut back is simple:
Real Life is a stressful, pain in the ass.
In the few before I chose to go in hiatus I found myself bogged down with hours upon hours of homework from College. I am not exaggerating here, practically every night of the week I have 4 or 5 hours of homework to get done. On top of, maintaining a clean house, laundry, cooking, and properly parenting my Monster.
In the end. I became overwhelmed. I had little time for myself, let a lone to get in some reading and dwindle down my TBR pile, or even write a review.
I could feel my body protesting against the hours I was keeping, and the things I was trying to get done in a day. The number of Brain Farts I would have a day kept increasing. So to keep my sanity I have pulled away from the blog for the time being. I discovered that I am getting to old to burn the candle at both ends. I'm exhausted.
Rest assured my friends, I will not be gone forever. I HAVE been allowing myself some time to read here and there as "downtime", I have notes for 4 or 5 books that are patiently waiting for me to have a little ore time to write their reviews, and with the majority of my "BIG" chores/projects dealt with for the year, I have a little more time on my plate between now and the new year to get a little rest, caught up on things blog wise, and of course feel a heck of a lot less like I keep sticking my finger in an electrical socket.
I'm so glad, and appreciative that many of you have been sticking by me and my blog these last few weeks, even when I haven't had a review post. It sure does mean a lot to me that you keep reading what I ramble on about!
I look forward to getting myself more organized as the last year of my Legal Administration course nears its midway mark, I feel a lot more confident about my abilities to learn and retain what is happening at school, mix it with a good balanced home life, and being able juggle in the blog!
I look forward to returning 100% very, VERY soon. Until then thanks for sticking by! And please, if you have any tips or suggestions on how to schedule your life, maintain a balance of work and play, or some ideas for some ME TIME and relaxation, I am all ears!
