Item of Interest

Okay gang, here it is: This old girl is going to hang up her blog for a while. I don't know how long it will be, but I'm just taking too much time out of my day to spend on the computer. I had no idea how much time writing blogs and keeping up with all my blogging friends would take. Don't get me wrong, I have enjoyed it, but at the same time I feel pressured by it and right now I can't take the pressure. I haven't been feeling quite up to par lately and I just need to sit back and relax without having a care in the world (is that even possible?) . I will most likely come on occaisionally just to read your blogs, but won't make comments or even try to write a new blog on my own. Maybe I'm burned out, but I just find I can't do this for a little while. I am certain that I will be back when I feel totally rested which doesn't seem like it will be for a couple of weeks or so because we are going to be gone this next weekend. We finally got an invitation to come and see our new (well, not quite so new by now) great granddaughter. I am so very excited though to see her at last. She is two and and a half months old now.

I will certainly let you all know when I feel stronger and ready to take it all on again. I want to thank all of you for being so faithful staying with me right from the start. I really do appreciate it and I feel that I really did get to know you all pretty well. I promise I'll be back.

My love to you all.



  1. So you're taking a blog break, huh? Well, we all need to do that now and then.

    Hope you enjoy yours and get lots of rest! And say hi to that cute little baby for me, okay?


  2. Darlene, it has been wonderful getting to know you! As Sue said sometimes we all need a little break. We will be here when you come back. I hope you feel well soon, and in the meantime will miss you.

  3. Darlene, we'll miss you. But everyone needs to take a break from blogging now and then, it can become very time consuming. Hope you are feeling up to par soon. We'll be here for you when you return! Kat (Have fun visiting your great grand - how fun!)

  4. So excited for you that you get to see your little great granddaughter!

    I've so enjoyed getting to know you. I feel like I've known you much longer than I have! You have already become very special and dear to me.

    Take really good care. Rest up. And when you are ready to come back. we'll be here.

  5. I've been lurking without commenting much myself--bloggy breaks are good for the soul. Have a great time on your vacation!

  6. Darlene, I hope you're feeling rested and well very soon. I have a feeling that seeing that new little one will help a lot. I'm going to miss your blog, but I'll keep checking back every so often. It's been a lot of fun getting to know you, and we've gotten some great recipes out of it! I'm sure Sue will keep us up to date on your doings.

  7. Have a great blogcation..the internet will still be here when you get back! You're a smart gal who knows when a rest is needed. Have fun with that great-grandkiddo too! Thanks for all the recipes!

  8. Ohhh, I'll miss you!! I have enjoyed getting to know you! I, too, spend too much time blogging and get sucked into the computer as I stroll past sometimes. Things are happening in our family lately too that make me realize it is a time stealer. I may have to do the same thing.
    Enjoy time with your great grand and know you'll be missed!!

  9. You will be missed; but sometimes we need a break from all of it too. I know the feeling.
    Have a wonderful rest and good times with family and friends.
    Blessings to you! LeAnn

  10. Oh know I hated to read this honey but gosh do I understand totally.
    I sure will miss you though and when you get rested please drop me an email now and then to let me know how you are doing.
    Enjoy your great grandbaby and I already miss you

  11. Darlene honey how excited I was to hear from you.
    It gave me hope that you were back here blogging again. I have to tell you I do miss you terribly. Not to put pressure on you but I loved reading your post.
    Thank you so much for stopping by for a visit. I go tomorrow for some injections to my back so hopefully I will get better at blogging myself. lol
    Hope you are well and that you have a really special Easter.
    I think of you often and miss you
    Love ya
