Dear Blog

I'm going to have to take a break from you. We have shared so many memories together, but I need a rest. I have a family that needs taken care of and laundry that needs done. I live in Florida now, which means it's actually sunny and beautiful in January and I wouldn't even know it for all the time I spend outside. It's not that I don't love you anymore or that I don't care, it's just that for now, I need some time to focus on other things.

There are so many blogs out there. So pretty and adventurous with advertisements and ideas and wit and wisdom. I have thought about making you that pretty so that people will want to read you more. Give you a purpose, if you will. That maybe if I added this button or this ticker they will all love you as much as I do. I have searched and gone outside your little world to find other blog stalkers like me. I mean, did you see that one blog? She had 297 comments! Unbelievable! She must be so loved. Why can't you be that good? And could I really make money by putting advertisements on you? Oh that one was so creative and look how many people love her! Why can't you be more like so and so's blog...she's flipp'n hilarious!

See what I mean? .....I need a rest. It's not your fault. I have succumbed to this blogging addiction like the best of them. But now it is time to stop and breathe.

I'm giving myself a week or two to recuperate, refresh and rejuvenate my real need for this blogging world. I need to realize that you may not be the funniest or most creative or beautiful blog out there, but that is okay. Your purpose is to make me happy and record my thoughts and dreams and daily woes. Worrying about pleasing anyone but me is just silly. You already have amazing loyal readers and friends. Though few in number, they accept you for who you are and even like you in spite of it! You are the best blog for me. And so I say adieu for now...to you and you and you.

That's exactly what I have done for the past 3 weeks! It's been a much needed break and now I'm excited to post something soon. As soon as I can think of something worth posting....so it may still be a while. Have fun in the sun down there!
