New Year Hiatus

I'm taking January off from the Code Yellow blog.

We've got some big home projects to work on, my creative juices have been congested for some time now, and I need to get my time management and home organization under control. Plus, I think I'd like to play the "I'm gestating" card here, because it just hasn't been as effortless this time around as it has been before.

So in the spirit of being totally honest about how my time has been disproportionately allocated in recent memory, the blog has to give for a little while. I do plan on coming back, and I do plan on visiting my fellow bloggers and - hold onto your hats! - commenting a bit more, so if you write it, I will roll by in my dump truck and say something about it.

In the meantime, if you missed the holiday jingle from our house, check it out. And feel free to peruse my archives or the quintessential posts (sidebar) if you really miss me. Comment love is felt deeply and may thrill me into early unretirement.

(And who knows - maybe by the time I come back, the "new" "improved" Blo99er will actually be new and improved!)

Hope your new year is off to a fabulous start. Happy January!

I really ought to do the same, my time management skills, especially now, have been shot. When I'm not parenting, I'm cleaning. And when I'm not doing that - I'm either sleeping or WANT to be sleeping!!

Happy New Year!

I'm SAD! I'm just getting to know you. However, I do understand the need to prioritize. Have a good break, and hopefully everything will fall into place much better than you plan. God bless!

I'll miss your writing but I'm glad you'll still pop in now and then to visit.

Awww man! Well, be sure and keep a notebook like Millie does about possible blog entries. That way, when you come back, then you'll be way ahead.

Happy New year Big T!

Good use of your "I'm gestating" card. I use my cards all the time (not the gestating one).

I shall miss ya. Have lots of fun IRL and stuff people do there.

Liz said...

Well you have a great gestation period :) I hope you will still email me

Millie said...

Hey - I only keep a notebook for special occasions, like meeting Carrot for the first time.

I understand taking time off - boy, do I. :) Have a nice rest.

"I'm gestating" is a GREAT excuse.

Take lots of naps, and we'll see you soon!

enjoy your break- you've got one big project going on there- that is always a major drain

Pam said...

Enjoy your time! Can't wait to read about all your new happenings when you come back!

I'll miss the kids' gems, but be sure you keep a journal of them! Have a good rest. My husband has been noticing recently how much time I spend sitting here! Maybe I should do the same, but not yet.

We had your yummy pork stew type dish again styesterday. My African daughter-in-law loves it and eats it with rice.

Have a nice break-I think we all need that every now and then. Making a new human is a good excuse for just about any situation! Use it while you can!

Happy New Year!

Read ya when you get back!

Good for you for taking a break! I hope your time off is productive and I'll be checking back in February :)

Enjoy the break. I know I need them every once in a while.

Missing you, but glad you stop by my place now and then.
