Hitting The Brick Wall – A Break From Blogging.

Hitting The Brick Wall – A Break From Blogging.

Life has been crazy the last 4 or so months.

If it’s not been one thing it has been another.

Everything has taken it’s toll, and today has been no exception.

When MonsterSquad Dad accidentally smashed the huge glass sliding door whilst whipper snippering, I knew that it would be the straw that broke the camels back.

I just don’t know how much more I can take right now.

I am desperate for a break, some time out, some space.

I am fighting migraines day in and day out.

Only the space never comes. I guess it’s not meant too.

I feel guilty, as I want so badly to write. Except I just can’t.

There’s no time or energy left to press the keys.

There’s more mental clutter in my mind than there is in my house.

To top it off, there is still 2 weeks of chaos left before routine returns.

If I could buy myself some space I would, but right now, we can’t afford too.

For now and possibly the next 3 weeks, I will be absent from the blog.

I need to regain order in my home.

I need to work on my relationship with my husband.

I need to get my children back under control.

I will miss the writing, but most of all, I will miss the communication with my readers through the blog and on Facebook.

You guys have often saved my sanity, and I hope when I do get some spare time, to check in on the Facebook Common Chaos Chronicle page and see how you are all going.

Thanks for your support,

Catch you all in a few weeks.

Big Luv, Jac xox

    1. Big hugs - blogging takes up a lot of time and cutting it out temporarily will give you heaps of breathing room. Take care of you and yours and come back when school starts and things settle into the new school year whenever that happens! xxxx

    2. Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.

    3. Oh Jac, we will still be here when you're ready to come back. I hope you find some calm.

    4. You do what you need to do Jac. We'll still be here. xx Hope you get things sorted out and have some calm soon. xx

      Ditto to all of the above! You and your family should ALWAYS come first! Good luck with finding the balance again - it's not easy!! xox

    6. Ouch. You poor thing! I know how stressful something like that can be, and the feeling of one thing after another. Thinking of you. Take all of the time you need, we'll still be here. xxxx

    7. I feel for you right now!! I hope you can find your calm and breathe again. Take care and i am sure everyone understands!!!! xxx

      As I keep telling need to take care of yourself before you can take care of others - just never seems to happen that way. As everyone has said, take care of you and your family and we will be here when you are ready.

    9. Look after yourself, Jac. You know where to find us if you need us... I hope you get some relief soon....

    10. Good idea Jac. Best wishes. Blogging comes after all the other things you've listed that you feel you need to get control of. Social media takes so much time and it can be a huge vortex of energy sapping especially when you haven't got much left anyway. I've learnt this for myself. It's been hard and uncomfortable but good at the same time. thinking of you darl xx

    11. You know Jac, there are just times in our life when we just have to stop and take a deep breath for a moment. I'm glad you've recognised it and are taking a well-earned break. This blogging is extremely consuming in so many areas of our lives and whilst it allows us that break from reality, it also often takes us away from what is truly important in our lives. Enjoy your rest. Free your mind of your piece of cyberspace for a while. It will be here when you get back, as will your readers. Jac xx

    12. Hope the break is just what you need Jac. You are growing a new human and that takes priority. Take care of yourself, your baby and your family. See you soon. xx

    13. Take care Jac.
