Hit and Miss

IMG_7204 wassup

Wassup, peeps?

Ok, so I hate to do this, but I think I’m going to have to be a hit-and-miss blogger for a little while. I wish I could say that things are getting better, but between some side effects and pain and my lungs taking longer than I thought to bounce back… I’m kind of getting my butt kicked.

I want so much to be on here writing everyday, but how I feel changes multiple times a day and I just know there’s no way I can be as consistent as I’d like to be. And the last thing I want is for you all to worry if I just randomly don’t post something one day!

So, I’ll really try to pop in as much as possible… maybe work on some blog-peep question posts that I can put up from time to time just to keep in touch and see your faces. [So feel free to fire away with questions in the comment section if you have them.] This way you don’t have to worry if I don’t show up some days, and will hopefully be pleasantly surprised if I show up a few days in a row.

Sooner or later I’ll get back to my 12:01 AM posts every day, but until then don’t worry if I disappear for a minute. Just trying, literally, to catch my breath. smile_wink

  19. Even though I don't comment much, I too will miss your posts. But, I hope not feeling like you HAVE to write something for all your "peeps" when you don't feel well will give you time to rest. And, pictures, singing clips, and re-posts/flashbacks are perfectly acceptable ;o)
    Take care.

  20. Praying for you, sweet one. Catch your breath, get some rest (if you can get comfortable), and know we all love you. I think you are doing a fabulous job. Tell Riles to love you to pieces, and let me know if you need anything at all. Eliana prayed for you, specifically today. She's four and a half...and knows all about you. Keep it that way by getting better, okay?

    ReplyDelete

  73. Hey, lib... i knew it was you because of your comment love link to your latest post. :) Are you putting in your name in nickname section?

    ReplyDelete
  74. thanks, nancy. you just can't know how much i appreciate it.

    ReplyDelete
  75. Thank you Sara. Yes, I'm very lucky in that God gave me 3 beautiful girls. My oldest looks like me but the 2 younger ones definitely take after daddy except for the skin color. That is a mix between us.
    And also, I made the decision to make my blog public so you don't have to sign in to see it anymore.
    I hope you have had/or are having a good night so far. If you're wondering why I'm writing at 0422 in the morning, well, Noor woke up hungry wanting the boob. Then since I was up for the it was time to do prayers. And also my hubby goes to work at 0400 too (he's a taxi driver) so unless I'm dead tired, I'm usually up for 1-2 hours and then go back to sleep till my 2 y/o wakes me up, which is usually much too early.
    Take care and God bless you
    Hugs
