This is pretty much how I feel…
After many, many weeks of working crazy long hours to finish John & Alice’s kitchen and family room, and being absolutely exhausted, then receiving news last week of Matt’s brother, and dealing with a grieving husband who already suffers from muscle weakness and fatigue which is only compounded many times over after a few of days of mourning…
Well, I’m spent.
I’m generally a deep sleeper who wakes up in the morning feeling refreshed and energized. Lately I’ve been waking up each morning in a haze, exhausted, overwhelmed, knowing I have a huge list of things I need to do, but not knowing where to start. My own home has been severely neglected over these last few weeks, with piles of laundry in the bedroom, piles of dishes in the sink. There’s not one single room in my condo that’s completely finished, so I sit here and stare at the thousands of projects that need to be finished, feeling completely overwhelmed. I spin my wheels all day long, and get absolutely nowhere.
I say all of that to say this: I need a break. I need to regroup. I need to refocus. My goal here at A2D is to bring you fantastic projects and helpful information each day that will inspire you and get you excited about your home and what you can do with it on your own. But right now, I can’t even inspire myself, much less anyone else.
So I’m going to take a short break. It won’t be a long break, but it will be a complete break. I need a few days away from my computer, away from the blog, away from the A2D Facebook Page. I need a few days of not having to read e-mails, or not having to answer questions about decorating or DIY projects. In other words, I just need a few days for me. And because y’all are awesome, I know you understand.
So, because this was a decision I made just this morning, I don’t have any fantastic guest bloggers lined up or anything like that. It’ll just be silence here at A2D…but not for long. Like I said, it’ll just be a few days, but right now, I’m not sure how many days that will be exactly.
And hopefully I’ll come back refreshed, regrouped, refocused, with some awesome projects for you, and more decorating inspiration.
Thanks in advance for understanding…’cause I know you do…’cause you’re awesome!
P.S. The Friday link party will continue as scheduled. I wouldn’t pass up a chance to be inspired by YOU!!
Addicted 2 Decorating is where I share my DIY and decorating journey as I remodel and decorate the 1948 fixer upper that my husband, Matt, and I bought in 2013. Matt has M.S. and is unable to do physical work, so I do the majority of the work on the house by myself. You can learn more about me here.
I hope you’ll join me on my DIY and decorating journey! If you want to follow my projects and progress, you can subscribe below and have each new post delivered to your email inbox. That way you’ll never miss a thing!
