Hard Decision

Some people read this. Many don't. I have trials. After trials. After trials. God tests me. I guess he thinks I can handle it. I'd like him to know that I'd love a break. But you have to be careful what you ask for. The last time I asked for a break, it was my 12th thoracic vertebra that was broken followed by my pelvis. God does have a sense of humor. Bless His heart.

I have my family together. It's been a little over 3 weeks since my preemie came home, you'll have to read the previous posts to catch up. This life has been one hell of an emotional roller-coaster for me. And it's still not over, Thank God.

I have a lot on my mind. Quite honestly I am on the verge of a mental breakdown. This is where I need to decide what is most important in my life. I love to dabble in many things, and these many things are leaving me stretched pretty thin. I've made a list of priorities which I'll post here. On this list are things I will be focusing on in the order they appear on the list.

1. Family

2. Homeschooling my children

3. Fitness

4. Kallio Kalleidoscapes

5. Company Networking

6. Personal Time which includes crafting

As you can see, blogging did not make the cut. I just simply do not have the time to keep up with a blog reading 20-30 pages a day, writing posts at least 5 times a week, keeping a company going, while raising 2 toddlers and a preemie, and hitting my fitness goals, having personal time, being a seductress to my husband, a maid to the entire household, a chauffeur that drives 6 hours round trip for doctors visits once a week, is up 3-5 times a night with the baby, up at sunrise with the other 2, the chef, the shopper, the referee, the butt wiper, the trip planner, and everything else you can think of save for the person who goes to work and changes the oil in the cars.

I love writing. And I have loved this experience. I have grown to love a few of the women who have actually given me the chance and listened to me. And I hope through email we can remain friends.

At the end of February I will be closing down my site. I have one more post to make before I do. I wish everyone in blogland the best.


  1. You will be missed, and I hope that once life settles down for you one day that you'll be able to blog again.

  2. Awww...Jess! I'll miss you for sure. You know, you can just leave your blog up and when the mood strikes you, you can write. There is no need to feel the pressure to blog every day. Many will fall away and not visit, but the ones who count, the ones who love you will be here for you regardless!!! Love ya!

  3. I haven't blogged in 6 months, mostly because life got to busy. I have it up though, and I will come back to it when life settles down. I don't know if you will lose all your posts if you close this down, but you want to preserve what you have as a history already. Don't delete it without printing or saving it.

  4. Oh Jess. This just confirms that you are a smart, responsible woman, mother and wife.
    Your writing will be missed--you are good (and honest) with this talent.
    I agree with what adrienzgirl said...

  5. Eh, youre fine. Really. You are amazing and you will get through it all. Cause you are you.

    Leave the blog up cause you never know when you'll need to vent. And this is the perfect place to vent silly!

    Its not like you have to blog every day. Some people only blog a few times a month. OR better yet - you could be blogging those cute crafts you do. A few pics, a few words and youre done.

    Plus did you know that there are TONS of blogs based on homeschooling?

  6. Jes...I know that life just feels overwhelming to you right now. You have so many new adjustments. I know what you really want out of life. And that is to create.

    I agree with The Blue Zoo...use this as a tool for your creative endeavors...unless of course you are going to start something just for those. If that's the case let your followers know where you will be.

    Hugs to you!

    Life will get easier...give it some time, keep your faith and persue it!


  7. Will miss you, but I completely understand!
