5 Reasons why I am not a good bloggy buddy right now

I just want to give a shout out to all of my readers who are still stopping by even though it has been a while since I've been able to visit any of you.

A thank you from the bottom of my heart for your continued readership.

Here are a few reasons why I haven't been by:

PTO.  I am feeling a little overwhelmed by the roll of president.  Between you and I, I often feel like I am not devoting enough attention to any one area of my life.  For example, if I give more time to PTO I have to take more time for family, blogging, crafting, name it.

DEMANDING CHILDREN.  I blogged about my oldest breaking her toe.  She is acting like she broke her leg.  I am having trouble feeling bad for her.  Son is crying about everything again and middle daughter has had more drama on the bus the past few days than anyone should ever have.

HOUSEWORK.  Um...I haven't been doing any so I'm not sure why it's interfering but damn is this house a mess.

BIRTHDAY PARTIES.  Just once I'd like to just be invited to our kids birthdays.  I feel like that's pretty much what my husband does every year.  Little G's birthday is Wednesday and his party is Saturday.  Ugh...I can't believe he'll be 8!


Sorry I haven't been around.  I need a mental health day.

No kids; no job; no PTO; no soccer, birthday parties, clarinet lessons, etc., and I still can't keep up some days. You deserve a mental health MONTH! (I need a mental health day just from thinking about your life.)

Don't worry. We'll wait for you. As far as PTO president.....been there, done that. Word to learn? DELEGATE. My biggest mistake.....I did all the jobs that other people wouldn't volunteer for. Learn to be persuasive. If they know that you'll eventually do the job, then they won't volunteer.

Hey, sometimes life gets in the way. I haven't been visiting as many blogs lately either, just not enough time to do all the visiting and commenting. Honestly, there are a lot of blogs that I do get to, but don't have time to comment on all of them. Too much going on in life right now.
Just remember, you write, I'll read it. I love your blog! If you don't get to mine that's okay too.

You definitely need a mental health day. You have a ton on your plate. You are the best in everything!! Sending hugs to you. PTO president is a really tough gig. I give you a lot of credit my friend.

I've been pretty bad myself. I have the blogging blahs. Take a break if you need it!
