I've come to a very difficult decision. Technically, my absence made up my mind for me and it makes me terribly sad, but I can't keep up with the blogging community right now or in the foreseeable future. This homeschooling thing is taking up a lot of time. I know that several of you out there homeschool and keep up with writing and blogs and I just marvel at how you do it. I have no time to plan ahead because I'm planning science, math, language arts, music, phonics and art lessons... Not to mention keeping my two year old occupied. (Truth be told, I'm failing at that too. Haha!) Add to that a rigorous church calling, family time, writing time a little time to practice music, cook, clean. do laundry, check and write blogs (etc) and it equals me breaking down.
Anyway, the decision that I'm still hesitating to even type out is that I won't be keeping up with this blog or any of yours. I really want to, but I just can't. If we're friends on facebook, I'll still be keeping an eye out for your awesome accomplishments and I'll still be writing my own novel. I just don't have the time to come up with not-so-clever blog posts. And reading all of yours? It's just not happening. There are hundreds of blogs I love. I'm so sorry! I wish you all the best and maybe in a couple of years when I'm NOT homeschooling, I can jump back on the wagon. Wow... That seems like eons from now.
I'm not going to lie. This post has been HARD to write. I've loved my on-line journey with the writing community and I've learned so much! Thank you all for being so supportive and amazing.
Time to go do a little science experimenting in the which I mess with the space-time continuum...
