Blog Vacation

Once I finally got my internet working, my computer working, and my website working after everything fell apart back in December I was eager to start blogging again! I jumped right in! I wrote 7 blogs a week, I started drawing new designs for my blog, working on upping my readership, and so on. Life quickly caught up with me.

Zizzy stopped sleeping at night. She got up every 2 hours for almost 2 months. Lulu's allergies got completely out of control. Between long sleepless nights and obsessive house cleaning to get down the allergies I found that everything in life was becoming a chore. My days looked something like this: Wake up at 6:30 Feed kids, do laundry, wash dishes, pick-up, put kids down for nap, fold laundry, put away laundry, take kids out to play, fix lunch, take a short break, vacuum, cook dinner, eat dinner, wash dishes, .... you get the idea.

One evening I was rubbing my exhausted head thinking, "What am I going to blog about today?" Then it occurred to me this was just another chore. My outlet, my hobby became my chore. It had lost its joy. I don't think I decided to take a break from blogging I just did. I shut my computer and took almost two weeks off.

In those two weeks I have almost completely sleep trained Zizzy! (more on that later). I have relaxed about the house cleaning, and I have gotten more than two hours of sleep at a time. Now I am ready to hit the blog world again!!

Have you ever had to take a break from blogging? Or found an outlet/hobby became a chore?
