Weekend Getaway...

I know it's been awhile since my last post. I have missed you all very much and plan on visiting you sometime tonight.

I have been contemplating how to continue handling my time on the computer. I really enjoy blogging, but I have found that I am missing out on so many other hobbies that I enjoy as well. Simply stating....there are just not enough hours in the day here lately. I will definitely continue visiting all of you each week; it just won't be as often as before. For the most part, I will be able to visit occasionally during the week, but mostly on the weekend. I really appreciate the emails that some of you have sent checking in on me. So, with all that being said, know that I miss you all during the week when I am not online, but it's just where I am in this season of my life.

Now that we've gotten that cleared away.......

We are heading out of town in the morning to a weekend getaway with extended family members. My in-laws rented a nice big cabin about three hours away from where we live and were kind enough to invite our family out.

I am sure that we will take plenty of pictures for me to post later.

I hope that everyone is enjoying their summer. We sure are!!

I can't wait to see what you all have been up to this week!

Have a fabulous weekend!!!

Kristin said...

Glad to hear you're okay, Daphine. I totally understand what you're saying about blogging....it can get out of hand when you spend so much time trying to keep up with everyone and there really isn't always enough time in the day. We understand! Just know that we love you and miss you when you're gone :) Hope you have a great weekend getaway!!

Denise said...

I totally understand sweetie, enjoy your time with your family.

Ginger said...

Lately I feel the same way! I've not had as much time as I'd like either to visit other blogs or write. You're so right...just not enough hours in the day to get everything done!

My best to your family! Enjoy your time away. It sounds like a great place for much needed rest and relaxation.

Lee said...

Hi friend!!!

I figured you were busy w/ your family, too!!!

Blogging can take so much time, but even more just catching up! That's what I'm doing now! LOL!!

Have a wonderful time at the cabin! That sounds so nice!!!!!!

I miss you!!!!!

Melissa said...

Daphine, I'm right where you are as well! I do need to take some time though and blog about some of the stuff that's been happening around here, just for memories' sake.

I have missed seeing you around, but not as much as I normally would because I've hardly been around as well! :)

Have a fun weekend!

Hi Daphine
I feel just the same about blogging time. I look forward to reading your posts and having you visit when you have the time. I will be doing the same. Work is busy at the moment and when we get good weather over here we have to get out there and enjoy it as it never lasts.
Hope you have a wonderful time at the cabin with your family. Can't wait to hear all about it.

Daphine,

I totally understand. I am easing back into blogging and trying to keep pressure off of myself to get to every comment and respond to everyone. My family has just lost 8 family members in one year and I'm worn so thin from running to be by my father's side. There are just not enough hours in a day to do it all ... so blogging has taken a back seat here for a while. As much as I miss everyone, it has helped free up some of my time.

I'll look forward to when you visit and know I love you and no pressures from this friend, ok!

Time is a precious thing, huh??

Enjoy your weekend.

Toia said...

Enjoy your weekend. I can't wait to see the pics. I understand how you need to spend more time with family, especially since your girls are out of school for the summer.

Beth E. said...

I know you're having a great time right now! Looking forward to seeing the pictures when you get back. :-)

Love,
Beth

Liz said...

Hey Daphine! I completely understand about blogging. I have cut mine down to posting only once a week and that's only if we did something worth blogging about that weekend. I does get time consuming and I just don't have a lot of time during the week. I hope you are having a great time at your weekend getaway!
*HUGS*

Jill said...

I hope you had a great time! Just post when you can - blogging should be fun!

April said...

Hey Daphine!
I sure have missed you! I completely understand how there just doesn't seem to be enough hours in the day to get done what needs to be done...or what you enjoy doing. Hope you enjoyed your time away! I look forward to hearing all about it! Have a Happy Monday, my friend!

Glad you're doing well, Daphine, and I understand about wanting to spend more time with your family, hobbies, etc. Just come visit when you can, or we will miss you!

I've been MIA due to circumstances beyond my control, and I'm likely to be again. We have a mess in our yard right now (two trees down). But we are fine. :-)

XO,

Sheila :-)

Hi Daphine, hope you had a fabulous weekend. I feel just as you do regarding blogging. I truly enjoy it, but there are many other ways that I want and need to spend my time. I too have been spending less time blogging, but enjoy visiting people when I can!

Life with Kaishon said...

I think what you are doing is very wise : ). Sometimes I spend too much time on here and not enough time with my son. I am shutting it off for the day! Hope your trip is wonderfully fun Daphine!

Laura said...

I can totally relate on the blogging stuff!!!! Hope you had a great relaxing weekend!

Jennifer said...

Have a wonderful weekend!!

The weekend sounds wonderful, too.

Glad to know I'm not the only one struggling to balance my love of blogs with the reality of the current time space continuum!
