Currently, my life has much in common with the jigsaw puzzle above; it’s overly complicated, exhausting and feels half-finished. And like the two-inch wide black border around this design, I can’t seem to make the pieces come together.
With that, I’m taking a break from blogging for the first time in 3 years. It is unplanned and a bit unwelcome, but necessary. The issues I mentioned in January are compounding. Starting at a new position in the library has been a bigger than expected adjustment. To be honest, it’s kicking my ass. Learning numerous processes and procedures in a fast-paced environment each day has left me running on empty when I get home.
I’ve wiped my blogging calendar clean for the month of March even with
several reviews drafted for both products and books, I can’t commit to finishing them in the near future. My absence may be for a month, or it may be longer. I could pop back in to contribute a Top Ten Tuesday if a topic particularly entices me, but no promises. I won’t disappear completely, however. I will visit my fellow bloggers, friends old and new, when I can carve some time for myself.
A heartfelt thanks to my new followers gained since December. I declare the book blogging community is beyond generous and welcoming. It’s a pleasure being one small member of your tribe.
Even when the sight of endless unprocessed book stacks send me over the edge on some extremely busy work days (@_@) I won’t be taking a break from reading and recording books for my reading co-challenge, Bookish Jay and the Reading Mermaid, follow our insta hashtag #bookishjayandreadingmermaid to check out my current reads.
To my longtime friends, I’m not saying goodbye, simply, see you soon.
