time out.

i have been having a hard time
getting to the computer lately.

between putting in a garden
and starting a new "career"
and wondering if i should go back to the bookstore
(is the money going to be worth the tension
and hassle it will cause to work out of the home
on weeknights and saturdays? i'm not so sure anymore)

between finishing secret life of bees
(and loving it!) and starting the english patient...
between not wanting to miss the winding down
(or up depending how you look at it)
of the apprentice and the amazing race...

between mothers day and new baby gifts,
a broken down jeep
and walks to the park on beautifully sunny days...

between two sick kids...one fevered, the other
coughing all night...
and trying the "gym" curves for the first time
and trying to fit in some pilates videos at home...

i have had a hard time getting here...
please bear with me.

I so understand, I'm having a hard time getting on the computer too. I'm in a blogging slump I think. well wishes to you and all you have going on.

Sometimes life is just like that and we just have to manage what we can and let go of the rest. I hope things calm down for you soon.

I know how it is!! I think there is something in the air, a lot of us are feeling that way.

You sound a little overwhelmed. I hope you are finding a little time for taking care of yourself in all the chaos!

A comp break can be a lovely thing and it sounds like you're accomplishing a lot! Enjoy the time away from the screen.

Your life sounds full and busy. I haven't had much time for the computer lately either. I've been posting, but have had little time for checking other blogs and leaving comments. I've missed everyone!

But I must say, your poetry thursday hangout looks incredibly inviting. It even makes me want to repaint my walls.

Thank you also for the comment you left on my blog today. I think there's probably some truth to it although I suppose it's a mix of a lot of things.

Anyway, good luck with everything. I'll stay tuned to your blog no matter how much time you take between posts! :)

Came here from Poetry Thursday. I think it is important to pull the plug of the monitor out of the socket every once in a while. Less temptation.

i hear you and it seems like a blog-wide happening right now. all my favorite bloggers have been busier with real life and as a result, not writing as much. between computer problems and working a lot the same for me.....i wish i could say my garden was taking my time. (=
