I Want To Be Alone!
Gentle Reader: I'm taking a blog hiatus for the summer. I have no free time to blog except on the weekend and my weekends coming up for the next 3 months are full with family, or I'm out of town, or I have prior commitments.
I also need to spend serious time looking for a new job and less time worrying about composing stuff for a post. It's a gorgeous summer day and here I am inside worrying about keeping my blog alive.
I'm having a really tough time these days so prayer is much appreciated. I'm having nearly monumental problems getting along with my boss and issues with my new neighbors, wherein thanks to their constant racket, I'm not getting enough sleep.
I need to spend more time reading and growing spiritually than I'm doing right now. I'm also veering really dangerously close to losing friends because of my mood swings and lack of availability.
For all of you, if I've offended in some way by borderline inappropriate emails or blog comments know that it has nothing to do with you and everything to do with me.
I need to lie low for a while. I know I talked about putting together a blog gathering in the near future. That's off the table for me. I have no time to set that up on a large scale. If someone wants to just meet for a meal or a drink (I know some of us do that already) that's fine by me and would probably be much appreciated! Drop me a line: email@example.com You're buyin'. LOL!
My plan for the next several months is to:
Look for a new job
Spend one hour/week in Adoration
Finish reading the saintly writings I never have time for
Mass and Confession
Make peace with my neighbors
One of my favorite quotes is from the film Sound of Music where Maria and the family take refuge at the convent and Mother Superior tells Maria as they are about to flee into the mountains "Remember, you will not be alone. I will lift my eyes to the mountains from whence cometh my help"
I will still be reading blogs on occasion and I will be maintaining my Facebook page. I plan to return to blogging eventually but it will be a while.
Please pray for me as I pray for you. Comment moderation will be enabled during my hiatus.
