Taking A Little Break Because I'm Burning Out

Hi everyone, I'm going to be taking a little break here at the blog because I feel burnout nipping at my heels. I have been having a lot of back pain, so much lingering sadness from the loss of my Buddy and now I seem to have lost the will to pick up a book. I think that is 100% because I have kept none of the promises I made to myself back in January. I've been reading ARC's, contest wins, book group reads and basically everything except the books piled up all around my home. I also can't seem to find a blogging groove. I have spurts of busyness and then I lose the enthusiasm and have to drag myself to the screen. I'll still be visiting around and will hopefully have more time to do so now that I'm not trying to squeeze too much into a day. You might see sporadic posts now and again but there will be no schedule (so, what else is new?!). I am also closed to any review submissions. I need to be completely selfish for awhile and spend some serious time healing myself, strengthening my core and my back, so I don't wake up feeling 90 years old or end up needing surgery. I'll still be around on Goodreads and Booklikes if you want friend me.

For now, I'll leave you with Patrick, doing his best to get my attention!

    1. Thanks, Chuckles! I am feeling a little more like myself and getting some reading done so the step back has been a good thing.

    1. Thanks, Barb. I'm in a little better headspace now. I just need a way to find some balance. Hopefully that will happen in the new year.
