Big Decision For Me

Hello my wonderful readers,

I don't know if you realized that Friday's post didn't go out, but it really frustrated me not to be able to write and connect with you. I look forward to sharing my thoughts and then getting yours in response. I really enjoy the give and take that exists in our blogging community.

But there is so much going on in my life right now, that I'm really struggling to find the time to sit down and write my posts.  

Here's what's going on right now -

  • My babies (don't tell them I call them that) go back to school in three weeks. Getting them ready to go back and spending the last days of summer well are taking up a huge amount of time and energy.

  • Our house is being remodeled. We started a major addition - a long story which I promise to tell you some day - in the middle of July. The constant decision making and lack of sleep (the framers start before 7am every day) is taking its toll on my brain and energy.

  • Then there is the rest of life - cooking, cleaning, etc. As much as I would love to set those chores aside to spend time with you, a girl has to have clean clothes and food to eat.

So what does that mean for Come Over For Coffee? Nothing major. I still want to spend time talking to you over coffee. I still want to have girl time and good conversation with you at my kitchen table. But I can't have any coffee dates right now. I need to clear my calendar for a few weeks.

Let me get the kids settled into school. They are all three in full day school this year for the first time!! Then I'll have time for our chats over coffee. Having you over will be a top priority after school starts.

Thank you so much for your understanding. I really appreciate your friendship and the richness you bring to my life!

Let's make a date for Monday, September 10. I'll be back at the table with my coffee in hand. Will you join me?

In the mean time, contact me through Facebook, Twitter, or email. Let me know what topics we should talk about when we get together again. Let me know what's new with you. I'll be online some over the next few weeks.

Until our next cup of coffee . . .


  1. Already looking forward to your return ;-)

  2. I understand I'll definetely miss you but that's how I was a few weeks ago. Take your time will be here. Take care

  3. I'll miss you but I understand and I admire you for making the right choices! Blogging and internet will always be here... but we can't take for granted each moment with our family! They are there... Praise God... but kids grow so fast...and each moment is sooo important! :) We'll be waiting for you!

  4. i can't believe I wasn't subscribed to your blog, but I am now. I will eagerly await your next post. Good luck wit the remodel and your kids' first days of school.

  5. Just read your blog - wondered where you've been so I searched here first. Missing you!! Major hugs!!! Donna N

    1. Thanks for missing me and taking the time to look for me. That makes me feel so loved!

  6. I know how you feel. I've written blogs here and there, but I haven't had the time to actually sit and read other blogs. It seems like I have missed out on so much that has happened in everyone's life. I'm going to make it a point to get caught up very soon :)

    1. I'm honored you took the time to read what I had to say. Thank you!!!


I would love to hear what you think. And I'll write back. Thanks for making the time to leave me a message.
