I was doing a little blog cruising over the weekend and I ended up at a life coach site. A few years ago a casual acquaintance of mine became a life coach so it sparked my curiosity. The blogger who led me there had taken the Enhanced Life quiz...I think that was the hook for me. The blogger described how she was working hard to complete a lot of the tasks that were listed on the quiz. Curious...and thinking to myself, aw heck...I'm pretty stinkin' happy, I think I'll take that lil 'ol quiz, it will be fun!
Section One, three questions in, and all I could think was - - -
Uh oh.
Wake. Up. Call.
It was called the Clean Sweep quiz and the first section focused on home.
Not that my life isn't good, it's really good. But it's kinda messy. Messy office, jam packed closets, kitchen cabinets, garage...yup...dang near everything isn't as orderly as I'd like it to be.
It's time, time to clean up and clear out... the time is now.
Crazy, I know. It's the holidays after all...but I kinda think that's the best time to do it. I can clear out and organize my Christmas stuff, get rid of what I don't need, then while I'm at it I might as well clear out my closets. There are clothes in there that I'm sure the Women's Shelter could put to good use at this time of year. Once I get the ball rolling who knows, I just might tackle that kitchen remodel I've been babbling about for the last ten years. Yikes!
Of course, all of these chores are going to take a lot of time and energy. Where will I steal the time from? I guess the most logical place would be...blogging.
On the third of December I will hit my one year blog anniversary....woo-hooo! I've almost made it a whole year :)
It's been great, I love the blogging community, but I'm taking a break. A couple of weeks ago I mentioned I might take a break and a few of you left really nice comments, thank you for that...I really mean it, it was super sweet. Of course I can't go cold turkey! It's going to take some time, I'll have to slowly ease that lap-top off my lap and back to the desk. I'll still be stopping by my faves, commenting occasionally....but I kinda want to be a lurker!
This is probably my last post for a good long while so I'll take this opportunity to wish you all Happy Holidays,
and of course happy blogging!
All the best,

Congrats on the one year! I just passed mine too. A year is a long time. Everytime I think I'll at least slow down I can't make myself. I wonder if I should take that quiz?
It's a wonderful world out here in blogland and I will miss you immensely! Take care my friend. But you know, there's pictures of that new kitchen and the cabin you'll just have to show us someday. :):):)
Many, many wishes for a Wonderful Holiday and all the best the New Year will bring!!

Congratulations on the anniversary. Mine will be in January. I'll miss you if you really quit for a while. But I understand. I'll keep going. I'm retired and live alone. What else am I going to do?

Have wonderful, happy holidays! :D

My one year is coming up too.

I just want to thank you Shelly for your support since I started. You were my only visitor for so long and it meant a lot to me. I want to thank you and wish you a happy Holiday season.

I will miss you but certainly understand your hiatus (spelling?).
