Apparently not everyone shares my zeal for MTV's brand of trashy reality TV, judging from the 2 comments on my Monday night post (and one was from me!). Oh, that's okay. I totally get it. I don't watch any of the dance contests, Big Brother, or Lost. I realize Lost isn't reality TV, I just threw it in there. I wish you all the best of luck as you try to pick your own flavors of fall TV viewing.

As for me, I'm going to keep it to the few I mentioned before and that's about it. Trying to keep it to a minimum, since life is sort of taking over.

Which brings me to my next point. I'm going to take a little break. From the blogging thing. I'm not quitting altogether. Just taking a wee break, ala Mad Hatter circa summer of '07. Not a huge deal. Just a breather. I hope you'll stop back by when I get back.

It's more about need to fold socks and scrub toilets. And maybe do some actual correspondence with real stamps and an ink pen.

Life is trying to get the best of me. What with work 10+ hrs a day, having a hip that wants to ache and pop all day long, and trying to raise two young kids with one young husband and really be THERE while I'm doing it.

So I'll be back. In a couple of weeks. Just taking some time off. I've got some stuff I need to think on and a little bit more I need to act on.

And by the way, thank you for your super kind comments. About my face. I wasn't digging for compliments, but it sure was nice to get some. Me and my mom face have some work to do!

This weekend I'm having brunch with some real life blogging friends. Two cousins and a former co-worker. I've convinced them all to blog with me this year and I'm so glad for it. Now we'll all be brunching together!

I'll be back soon and I'll certainly see you then.

DUDE! Don't go!
No, I'm just joking. I hear you - a nice week long break is always advisable lest your house become a sty.
I don't find writing my own posts time consuming - but reading and commenting on others takes up a nice chunk of time. But the alternative would be rude, stand-offishness and I can't abide by that.
Have a good time out there in the real world.

Glad that I get that little brunch in the middle of this break. I have been on a little hiatus since I'm back home too. Sometimes, you just have to let it slide a little. See you Sunday!

Sorry to see you head off on a break, just when I was getting to know you and your blog! I'll be here when you get back--enjoy the break!

I've been thinking of taking a break too! LOL Not sure yet if I'm going to, but it crossed my mind. I wasn't on much yesterday or today which is why I missed/didn't comment on your post below!

I hope you mean it when you said you'll be back! Cause you'll surely be missed while you're gone!

Enjoy your break, and keep in touch via email once in awhile :)

I SO understand your need to take a break - expecially now with school starting up - But, I WILL MISS YOU! Enjoy your time off, but don't forget I need my Melanie fix!

Bummer....but I do understand...now that the school year is here I don't know how much I'll be blogging either. I'll check back with you when you're back.

Jenifer said...

Enjoy your break. I waver around this myself and I hardly ever post anymore...I read a lot though.

Take your time and breathe.

Talk to you soon.

Now you know why I have been away so much lately too. Might try and call one of these nights, assuming life doesn't get the best of them all!!

Oh Man! I am just returning from a little break--again--and I was looking forward to your posts!
But totally understand...life like gets in the way...now I am going to go check out your Monday post, I did watch an episode of Hills, upon your recommendation, and enjoyed it. Thanks!
