burn out

This past week has been the longest week of my life. Between an emergency trip home, Justin having a severe mouth infection and having to go to the ER, and me working my tail off at work covering shifts, I AM TIRED. This all feels not unlike summer 2012 where I turned into a crazy person and worked at Adrian's M-F and the portrait studio Thursday nights & weekends (so basically I was working 24-7) for 6 months straight. 

Case in point: I am tired. It feels like I am running on fumes. I haven't been very active on the blog this month, and for that I'm sorry Blogland, but real life just keeps doing its thing and moving at lightening speed whether I want it to or not. 

The other day K. Haupt suggested on Twitter everyone take a break for the rest of August. 

And then this morning, HB. rocked my Monday Morning inbox with the announcement that she is also taking a break. 

So maybe this is just a cosmic sign to just law low for a bit. Go to work work when I need to, but just slow it down and take a breather. So for the rest of August, I'm not going to feel obligated to publish a blog post every day and then beat myself up for it when I don't. I'm not going to feel obligated to work on my summer book when I don't want to, or iron out wedding details when I don't want to. 

I'm predicting the next two weeks will involve some knitting, some reading, and a lot of R&R. I'll see you in September, Blogland.
