I hope you don't feel this way about the bloggers I've chosen.
Here's the truth. A few weeks ago, we instituted "take a break" with Wee 'Burb. Like a time out, but less punitive given she's 20 months. It was more about having her step away from a situation and calm down.
It works like 50% of the time. Or to quote Anchorman, "60% of the time, it works all the time."
Which is to say, sometimes it serves its purpose and she just sits and gets distracted from whatever it was that was making her frustrated enough to hit someone. Usually me.
I started thinking about this in my own life, about how great the idea is, really. To sit somewhere with no distractions and just reset.
So that's what I am doing.
Initially, I wanted bloggers to cover the week that I was out. And then I got such great submissions, I decided to go ahead and take the week before, too. To prepare for the weeks ahead. Where I will be traveling with my family and a toddler. Where I will be unplugged for 7 days. Where I will hopefully reset a little bit.
Nothing will change here. I'm still the same old Stephanie, blogging about inanities and showing pictures of my kid.
The truth is, I chose these bloggers because they are funny, sweet, sentimental. They are all so worth reading, I am proud to have them here. I really, truly hope that you go and read each and every one of them.
And I truly hope you'll be back when I am.
Wishing you all the breaks you need!
