    Celebrations Defining She Life & Quirks

    ‘Tis The Season To Take A Break


    The time has come for me to take a much needed and well deserved break. I haven’t had a time in a while where I didn’t worry about what I owed someone else. It kept me from blogging about life, Tweeting, and Facebooking because if I had time to do those things, I had time to take care of what was owed. I felt guilty for doing anything for fun and would put those things off until I was caught up. The house had become a disaster and I do not function well in disorder. I went through spells of motion sickness (minus nausea) which I believe was stress induced. Although I didn’t feel stressed and my doctor said I didn’t appear stressed, I know it was and what targeted the bobble-headed episodes. Believe it or not, it was not blogging. It was juggling design work. I always hit a point where I want to quit because I end up with too many clients at once.

    I won’t be quitting, but I will be taking a break to figure things out. It always seems I know what to do, it’s just finding the time to do so. My ultimate goal is to better the finances for more leisure time, not losing leisure time bettering the finances.

    So I will use this time of leisure to:

    • Organize my goals, my computer, and inbox
    • Enjoy time with family and friends
    • Spend alone time with Greg
    • Be a better mom and wife
    • Play video games
    • Take pictures
    • Treat myself to a few things
    • Make plans to be a better part of this online community
    • RE freakin’ LAX!

    That said, I will see you all in 2011. I won’t be switching blogs, lol, I’m quite happy here. All remaining reviews/promos that haven’t been posted by Christmas will resume mid-January. If I have time, I may throw some in before then. Sponsors, thanks for your patience and I hope you understand. Readers (especially commenters) and design clients, thanks for sticking around during such a hectic time in my life. An update on that will be coming when I return. I may have blurted some of those updates out on Twitter and Facebook :). And if you’re wondering, I won’t be taking on any new design projects until the Spring ;).

    Happy Holidays… and to all, a good night!
