Personal Update and a Break

So, I spent the majority of today sleeping. Granted, I did go out to dinner and drinks with my friends last night but I don't think that's why. I just feel so very depleted. There's so much going on in my life right now and I am feeling like it's a challenge to keep my head above water.

I'll give you a general overview because I don't want to give other people's personal details on my blog. My mom and stepdad are getting a divorce and it is getting extremely ugly. I mean, it was an ugly and sudden reason for a break up and it just keeps getting worse. I feel like my mom has been thrown off kilter and is making some horrible decisions that might end up affecting my life permanently.

On top of that, my grandma is nearing the end of her battle with lung cancer. It's just so very hard to watch. It makes my heart very very heavy.

So, for now, I'm taking a break. I can't manage to keep up with my creating with all the stuff I have going on. I need to step away and work on getting myself back in order. I'm hoping to be back in a couple week.

  11. Ashley,

    Girl you need to do this and I can not tell you how the last two weeks break has revived me.

    I did not even have the same type of reasons for needing a break as you mostly just because we were traveling so much and would not have Internet Access, but the break will do you good and I hope you can feel better about things and things get somewhat better concerning the situations you are dealing with.

    I lost two Grandma's in the last year and a half and it is very hard and heart breaking so I am so sorry that you have to deal with this.

    You take care of you and those sweet babies of yours, and enjoy your Break!!!!
