I wrote a few hundred words one day during my week off the blog. Life kind of blew up all over me.
We’re very shorthanded at work and with no new hires permitted, any time someone leaves, the rest of us pick up the slack. It makes for ten to twelve hours days and a VERY exhausted Andrew. This also limits my internet time because I can only do it at home. Zero access at work.
It’s almost the “season” for my mom’s ice cream shop, which means she really needs my help making flavors. I’m going to try and keep it one day a week, but that’ll have to be when I’m off from my day job.
And most upsetting, my wife’s back has been acting up. It’s bad this time, to the point I have to do a lot of things for her. I hate seeing her like this because I’ve told Kait many times they’re long lost sisters. Until I met Kait I thought my wife was the person who preferred doing things a million at a time.
She’s getting better, but we have to be very careful or it’s back to square one.
With all this happening, something has to give and blogging is the most logical choice. For now I’m just stopping all together. I don’t intend this to be for too long, but suffice to say, I won’t be in the next round of ROW. When I started blogging, I did once a week, then two and when ROW came along, I upped it to four. Even when I do come back, that’ll be too much for me to keep with AND write. I need time to reorganize. So that’s what I’ll be doing for the remainder of this round and beyond. Otherwise, I’ll still be around on Twitter, other people’s blogs and (maybe?) Facebook.
Thanks to everyone for all the support. See you back here soon.
