Pour Your Heart Out. A Block.

Today is "Pour Your Heart Out".  It's hosted by Shell at "Things I Can't Say." It's the first time I've joined this little group, but today I feel like I have some confessions to make.  So, here goes...

I'm at a standstill. My blog has stuttered to a complete stop. Noticed? Yep, I bet you have.  I should feel horrible about this. Some tell me I should feel guilty, or not "up to par".  Whatever.  This is my blog. What and how often I post is up to me and me only.  I know I "should" be posting Christmas treats and meals, but I just haven't.  I haven't cooked an actual sit down meal for my family in days.  And that last one was just a "what-do-we-have-in-the-kitchen" dinner.

If it makes you feel better, my blog isn't the only thing that has been neglected lately. But, such is life when Mom gets sick, kids have school projects, birthdays, and parties.

But, you know what? It's okay!! Yes, I'm a little worried that some of you might leave. I hope you don't.

Yes, I'm a little worried that someone will knock on my door and want to actually come in my house. And that my house is a mess.  But, you know what? My kids are happy.  That, right there, is what is most important.

So, I apologize for the lack of new recipes and posts. I don't know when my inspiration and motivation will come back. Hopefully soon! If not though, I hope you'll stick around.

In the meantime, if YOU would like to contribute a recipe, a kitchen tip, or idea, or just any home-related article, just contact me! I would be more then happy to feature YOU!

Thank you for your wonderful patience and your amazing support.  I'll be back soon!


  1. Take time and rest, regroup, do whatever makes you happy!! You will come back feeling more creative and energized than ever!!!

  2. No apologies necessary!! You have to take care of your family, right? I felt that impulse, too, to make and post all these treats, but then my family wouldn't eat a decent meal, so there. If someone knocks on your door, it's to see YOU, not your house. Enjoy your kiddos. They grow up fast....

  3. No need for apologies! While blogging is so amazing and a part of my's only a part. Taking care of my family comes first.

  4. You're not alone! I've felt the same way with my blog. But here's to January resolutions, right??

  5. I've gone through this several times in my three years of blogging. It has to be fun or why do we do it. Take it easy on yourself.

  6. Thanks ladies. I really appreciate the support! Especially now that I found out that I have Strep throat!! Argh! :)

  7. Take some time off. We can wait. :-) Besides, who has time to cook anything other than cookies this time of year?

  8. It's funny you would be feeling that way right now, because I am in the exact same boat! I told my hubby the other day that I was done blogging. I was just about to make a "farewell" post, but decided to mull it over for a few days. As for now, I have decided to just post when I can, and if I lose the VERY few followers I have, so be it. I just need to take a step back and spend more time with my family too!
