Weird Week & Potential Hiatus

If the trip to Hollywood to be in a movie wasn’t bizarre enough, our new puppy is scheduled on a flight from Brussels to Columbus, arriving Tuesday evening. In addition to this, over the time I was in Hollywood, I was contacted by someone to be on the board of a very prestigious organization. Though I declined, it blew me away for a short period of time.

There was a point over the last couple of days that surrealism was at its highest in my life, ever. During that period of time I began to realize how much I haven’t been doing. Near the top of the list, posting on this blog. Slightly higher than that is visiting people listed on this blog. I began to wonder about my near future: training a puppy, getting Ari into his new school, Joshie walking, studying for the LSAT, attending ZestFest, Weight Watchers, taking the LSAT and getting into law school (not to mention attending law school)…the list seems to be getting longer and longer each day. In short, I’m wondering whether it would be prudent to even keep this blog here. If I do, I might put it on a temporary hiatus with a definite period of time and revisit the decision at that time.

I know…you’re all going to tell me not to do it. But, I don’t think it’s fair. In order to make this site thrive, I really need to be visiting and commenting on the sites I have on my blogroll and I just don’t have it in me right now.

Yes, I could leave it to the other writers, but they seem to be getting busier too and I don’t want to overburden them by asking them to visit the sites I have listed, comment on them AND write regular posts.

I don’t know…I’m still thinking it over, but very inclined to just stop. I’ve had a really good run here and would be ending on a lower note than I’d like. But, my real life is mimicking art to the extent of being overextended.

    Um, WTF? You were in Hollywood already and now you’re back home? And what’s this about being in a movie?????

  2. Spill it about the movie! How was the trip??

    Welcome to your sweet puppy! I can’t wait to see pics of her with the fam!

    Regarding the blog, you do whatever you need to do. I’ve often wondered how you’ve done it for so long. Maybe you’re Wonder Woman in disguise…

    I would miss reading about everything here, but I do know where to find you IRL. I’m not forgetting either!

  3. As you once told me, blogging is cathartic. It’s not meant to be a constant because life issues are not constant (most aren’t, at least :smile:). To force it wouldn’t be fair to you either. Write when you are inspired and enjoy where you are now. You’ve got so many wonderful things happening. Enjoy them, experience them, and someday, come back and write about them.

  4. Wait, what?! Did you mention the movie thing before and I totally spaced?

    And a hiatus makes total sense. A puppy plus wee ones is a shit load of work, which you know. Plus school, sister you are going to be super duper busy. I say take a hiatus but don’t take the site down just yet. You may need space to vent. 🙂
