Back away from the keyboard and no one gets hurt

I've sort of been neglecting my blog lately. I realized that Domestic Spaz was beginning to become a bit of an obsession with me. I stopped working and started reading and writing and loving it. Everything in my life became "blog worthy" or "not blog worthy" and I became agitated if I realized I'd forgotten my camera at home.

I had to step back a bit.

I had to tell myself it's okay if I don't post a blog entry every single day and it's okay if I don't post about every little thing that happens in my life.

It took a few days of backing off but I think I feel a lot healthier about my blog now. :) The other day when we went through the drive thru at Burger King and there were two horses in the line behind us and I couldn't get a good picture of them to post on the blog I absolutely did not have a conniption about it.

It really happened, folks. You'll just have to trust me.

I hope to find some sort of balance in my life that will allow me to accomplish all the things I need to get done every day and still find time to blog and read blogs. Some day... some day when I figure out how to get myself together.

You have been missed, but good for you for knowing how to take care of yourself. Goodness knows that is something I need to work on.

By the way, seeing horses in the drive thru line would be kinda cool.

Balance...it's all about balance. We all need to remember that sometimes! And that horse pic really would've been cool....

I noticed you hadn't been so prolific as of late!! You were missed! Good for you, though -- you (meaning WE ALL!) need to prioritize. I'm finding myself in the same situation. Not necessarily just about blogging, but I'm wasting a lot of time online and trying to keep up with online groups, writing, etc.

But to be honest, as a reader of other blogs, sometimes those who post EVERY DAY about EVERY DETAIL gets a little old, too. You're doing the right thing!! :)

I am the same way! We are going to the fair tonight, and I am already thinking about all the things I can blog about. What did we do before blogs?

Sometimes I get obsessed with my blog too...like I can't stop going to check my comments or site meter. It is an addiction! Glad you got it back in check and are back to blogging!

I made myself take a week off to get things back into perspective. It helped! I know longer feel so, um, addicted.
