Just A Song Before I Go....

Well I am not really going anywhere, I just love that song and it came on my iTunes as I was trying to think of a good title for this post. It was either that or The Bitch is Back and really Elton John Sarah? I desperately need to clean house on my music collection...

I first want to thank everyone who has emailed, commented, called, thrown eggs at my house, wondering where the hell I have been. I usually try to comment at least when I haven't been posting, but I have been a slacker all around the blog community. To tell you the truth there was no great reason not to post except I didn't want to. I channeled my inner 7 year old girl and rolled my eyes and stomped my feet in protest of writing anything that wasn't school related. Blogging had started to take up a huge part of my brain and I needed that part. I had started to walk a little off balance and run stop signs, it wasn't pretty. Because you know, travelling twice the speed of sound, its easy to get burned (Thanks for that line David Crosby)

One of my favorite bloggers recently said that she wasn't going to say she was going to stop blogging all together, because as soon as anyone said that they were done they were suddenly inspired to write like Shakespeare. So I won't say I am done, but I wont say I am coming back to it entirely either. Just wanted to let everyone know I am here. I have been trying to read all my blogroll and know that if I didn't comment I am laughing/crying/getting angry/reflective in the comfort of my bedroom. Hopefully the words and inspiration will come back eventually and you all will have one more blog to take up your time in the mornings.

I couldn't have said it better myself. I wondered where you went but I was giving you your anti-blog space. Heh. Enjoy the time away, I'm definitely feeling burnt out on blogging too.

Katie said...

I have been missing your blogs. I hope you are able to write again soon!

Peggy said...

Take your time girl! We'll be here when you get back!n

Jennifer said...

I feel a blog is kinda like an extra-curricular activity. You should do it because it's fun, not because you feel like you have to!

No harm in taking a break, but we'll miss you!

Beth said...

Sometimes we all need a break. Take all the time you need. We'll still be here. Maybe.

Beth said...

And by maybe, I meant that sometimes I don't feel like writing either.

Miss you!

I think it's healthy for all of us to step back now and then. I know I will need to do that from time to time. If I don't, I'll end up quitting altogether because of the stress.

I hear ya...it takes quite a bit of time to write, read, comment, repeat. I took over a week off, and it was nice....I watched a lot of tv and drank a lot...well, my normal amount of beer. Have fun!

Captain Dumbass said...

I understand. Sometimes it turns into work and that ruins it. Do what you gotta do.

Vic said...

Love ya either way. I love your blog, so I would really hate to see you get burned out (it's easy to do)

I just the fb picture on your son!! That's goose-eggy!! Hope he's okay, and you too. :)

Blogging does have a way of taking over your life. . .

Sometimes I think. . . AND FOR WHAT???

We'll see you when we see you!



and p.s. It wasn't me who threw the egg. Honest!

Michelle said...

Hi Sarah just when I was getting to know you!!! :O)

It's cool, I will be reading whenever you post!

Have fun and enjoy your break!

Themis said...

It was great meeting you last night and I do believe you now have a new post rolling around in your head about your 'crush'. LOL

Lola Takes Pictures said...

This is why I blog sporadically--because if I blogged regularly I would have burned out by now.

Take all the time you need but do stop in and say hello once in awhile.

Chris said...

Don't feel any obligation, it's YOUR blog. Post if you feel like it. If you don't don't. It shouldn't feel like a chore, ya know?

I'll leave you on Google Reader so hopefully you'll pop up every now and then. Maybe you should go have some blogtastic-worthy adventures this spring. Go do something you normally wouldn't! Then again, that could get you in jail, knocked up, or with an unfortunate piercing.....nevermind. Stay home;)

Sometimes it flows and sometimes it don't. Take a breath and a break. Perhaps then, the muse will return. I will hope.

Lulu said...

I thought I posted this but...well. I didn't. So anyway - ditto. Can't wait to see you again. Thanks for playing.

FoN said...

Hey! We'll see you around. Will still be here!

Sprite's Keeper said...

You ARE missed though. As long as you visit once in a while, I will understand..

Jenni said...

but I miss you. and lets face it, it's all about me.
