This morning began with the following exchange via text (which I don’t know to–nor have the desire to figure out–capture and paste here).
::I just want to do everything::
::I know. But sometimes you can’t.::
And, after a whirlwind mess in the kitchen that somehow ended up with me crying on the couch, book club book not read, a wine tasting meeting with a friend canceled, and laundry definitely not done, I knew there was only one thing to do to help alleviate this consistent feeling of being overwhelmed and overloaded.
I have to give up blogging.
Now, hold your heart attacks, people.
I have to give up blogging..on the weekend.
It might seem like nothing, but I am really proud of having gone almost two years (come Sunday) without ever skipping a day of posting at least some witty quip or picture or message on this crazy blog of mine. But I can’t do it all, and I’m going to give up this one little pressure on myself. [After my two-year blogiversary next Sunday...I mean, Little Miss Competitive With Myself would like to be able to say I gave it a full 730 days. Well, 731 if you count the leap day on Wednesday.]
Something (no matter how small) has to give, if I’m going to live.
Because Mr. Mason Jar was right. I can’t do everything…even if I want to.
Thanks to everyone who supported Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution and the small attempt I tried to make promoting healthy eating for kids, both in school and at home. The winner of the Champions of Love giveaway is….
Congratulations Jen! E-mail me so I can put you in touch with Chobani and Love Grown.
