We’re On a Break

posted on

Life has happened in our home. For a while it felt like every one in my home was being hit with something. My daughter had the flu, my husband had the flu, then he was dealing with some other serious challenges, my mom received some unexpected health news on her dementia diagnosis, I got an infection, I got some finanancial news I didn’t want, and my fosterish teen was battling cold. On top of that Lacrosse season started, and I was simply stressed with trying to take care of everyone. It was life. This is life. It happens, but I am completely behind with LoveLee Day Planners.

I only have so much brain space and it felt like I needed to deal with the small fires in my own home before I could start looking at my traditional 8 p.m. to 1 a.m. work time for this business. That was a hard decision to make… I am constantly feeling the guilt that comes with it! I’ve written posts but not posted them. I have created products but I have not shared them. And I have been extremely inactive on social media and I feel so guilty about all of it.

So, I’ve decided to take a break. I need to get myself back on track. (This is probably more transparency than some business owners would show, but I feel as if I owe it to you guys). I need to focus on my husband and offering him support where he needs it. I need to try to get through my 300 work emails. I need to get some pictures of my products. I need to plan. Heck, I need to do my taxes.

I plan to come back in May with all new posts – think the Top Five Tips for Working Late With Less Mom Guilt, The One Free Service That Save Me Money, Time, and My Sanity, and my Top Productivity Apps. I have new products and updated products. You’ll start to see them in May. I really appreciate all of your support and I thank you for giving me the time to take care of my home.

I pray that you and your family have a happy Easter weekend, full of egg hunts, cookouts, and most importantly full of worship of our risen Savior. Though the world may be dark, it really is a Good Friday!

    Thank you for this post. It is good to take some time-out when you need it, and in the end your family is the most important thing. Good luck. I wish you all good health and looking forward to see you again in May.

    I’m so sorry you’re going through all of that! My family’s been hit hard with sickness too lately. When it rains it pours!

      Yes it does sometimes. There is a song I love that’s says “rain nothing ever grows without you.”

    Oh don’t feel guilty. Everybody needs time for themselves. It is human and I doubt that there is anybody out there calling you out for it. Family and health is what most important, so take your time to recharge without feeling guilty xx
