Coming up for Air


Just wanted to let you know I am alive.

Am having trouble rationalizing blogging when:

I don't have a moment to read yours

My responsibilities have not been met around the house and at work

Hoping you all had wonderful New Year's celebrations and that you are getting your year off to a great start!

Shanna said...

Get your chores done soon...we miss you!

mama's smitten said...

You are missed ! But I completely understand!

Pam D said...

We all have our moments (or in my case, months...). Blogging should never get in the way of real life; it's supposed to be a simple way to document it, not replace it. But dang, I do miss you and will be very happy when you finally make it past the logjam. Your labor and delivery stories are just the best! {{{hugs}}}

Julie,

Get your priorities in order first and then come back and slowly pick blogging back up. There are quite a few that have taken a long winters nap and have been out of the loop.

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

I totally undertand, Julie! I've been away from blogging since before Christmas because my family was top priority. Don't beat yourself up to much...we all get it. Big hugs!

E @ Scottsville said...

That's okay, Julie!!! I think we're all kinda in the same boat right now. People are gonna think I died cuz I haven't blogged in three days. ha ha ha

Hang in there!!! Happy New Year to you too!

Hi...Just found your blog site. You're terrific.

Stacie, A Firefighter's Wife said...

I understand. I've been pacing myself! It is not right to neglect our family for blogging.

Speaking of which, my daughter just said that the baby just pooped! Gotta run!

Momma Pixie said...

Stopped by from Once Upon A Miracle and WoW! Heartbreaking but thank goodness she and baby had so much love surrounding them, including you.
