dear people of the blogger world,
hello. I've been gone for a month now. In a way I'm sorry, but then, I'm not really.
I just haven't felt like I needed to post. I would think, oh I should really do a blog post. But I never actually wanted to. So I didn't. A couple weeks ago, I decided that I would write this post. But then I ended up with carpal tunnel in my right hand, and typing isn't the best thing for that. So much I needed to get done - blog post, letter to my pen pal, washcloth orders to fill - plus all the regular life stuff, but I couldn't do any of it. I still worked, but my hand would be really sore by the end of the day. And, actually, my hand still gets sore. I'm still wearing the brace for most of the day. But I'm slowly starting to get things done. I still haven't finished that washcloth order, but I'm getting there - knitting only a few rows a day.
And finally I am sitting down to write this post. A goodbye letter.
Because, yes, I'm leaving. I know I had said I would stick it out till the end of the year, but I just can't. I need a break from blogging. For how long, you ask? I honestly couldn't tell you that. My hope is to come back in a year. Maybe sooner, if I suddenly feel the need to come back.
Please don't be mad at me, dear followers. I feel bad that I'm leaving. But I do believe I need this. Because, though I know blogging isn't the most important thing in the world, but without actually stepping back and saying, I need a break. I know that in the back of my mind a voice would be telling me to write, to post, to read blog posts, to comment. I wouldn't be able to relax. Breathe.
Because, it's November. And I still haven't done Septembers Photo Dump. And that bothered me. That's why I'm writing this. So my mind can rest. Knowing that you guys are no longer waiting for that. I am so sorry. I can't really tell you why I'm leaving, I don't really know, I just know that I need to.
I can't say how sad this is for me, but at the same time, it's refreshing.
Maybe someday I'll come back. And when I do, I'll come back with a bang. Promise. *winks*
For those of you who are lucky enough to follow me on Instagram, don't worry, you'll still see what I'm up to. I don't plan on leaving insta.
I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving. A wonderful Christmas. A wonderful 2019. A wonderful life.
I'll be back. *blows kisses*
