After weeks of burning the candle at both ends I hit the wall. Which sucks because I need at least another week before I can take any kind of time to myself.
I didn’t let that stop me yesterday however. I did nothing. I curled up on the couch and watched TV all day, between dozing on and off that is.
Most mornings, starting around 4am when the cat wakes me up, I have this narrative in my head about what the post of the day will be. I still have that but bringing myself to the computer to write it does not seem to be there. I have several posts that I want to write, and I will, but I need to get some stuff accomplished outside of the internet, outside of my house as a matter of fact.
I don’t want to do them. I don’t want to do anything.
But I will, I will get my mojo back. I’m not depressed, I’m just exhausted.
We all need a break from time to time. You’ve been a busy little bee welcoming everyone and getting buttons and all for TB. I want a day on the couch. I’m so behind on my recorded shows.

Completely understand! I’m in desperate need of a sleep day. I tell myself every day that I will go to bed early and I never do.
I’m depressed that I’m exhausted so, you know, double whammy.

Do what you gotta do girl. See you when you get back.
I’ve been fighting off depression & exhaustion for the last several months and am hopeful the advent of Spring will help alleviate some of it….
I hope your day improves.

Yes, there is life beyond the internet.
We were doing 5 posts a week for a while and now it’s around 3 and that seems manageable.
Especially since we like to come read some of our favorite blogs and be part of their community as well. Lots to do!
And oh yeah, work the regular job and spend time with the family.
Hang in there!! 🙂

Get some rest and then do those things that you don’t want to do. Once you get them done you will feel much better about everything.
Have a terrific day. 🙂

We’ll still be here. Getting the crap done and off your plate will just make you a better writer.

I hope you are just chillin’ like a villain, Jen! Take your time!

“I hit the wall.” Yeah, been there a lot of times. Matter of fact, if I’m ever going to use that as a title, i’ll add something like “…but it already feels like my bed foam.”
C’mon, you can do it Jen!

You deserve a break after everything you’ve been working on. I hope you get some time to yourself soon!

If whatever you are doing stops being fun, then yes, you need a break.
But don’t be gone too long!!!

The best thing about the internet is that it’s always there for you, even if you spend a few days watching Lifetime Movie Network and eating ice cream. Not that I’ve ever done that. But you absolutely should.

It’s not like we won’t be right here when you get back! Where else would we go? It looks like you’re off to a great start too.
.-= Buggys´s last blog ..Judge Douchbag ? =-.
We all need a break sometimes! I was feeling a bit like this last weekend. Suddenly I just couldn’t go anymore.
Take your time! We’ll be here when you return all rested!
Loving the Tribal Blogs site by the way. Beautiful job on it!
.-= Salt´s last blog ..Ta dahhhh!! =-.
I hope that you were able to get some rest!! Sometimes we all just need one of those do nothing days!
.-= Stephanie´s last blog ..Stumbling Along =-.
I have days like that, when all I want to do is fall asleep on the couch watching television. It’s good to allow yourself those every once in awhile!
.-= CatLadyLarew´s last blog ..Motivate THIS! Homage to a BadAss Blogger =-.
Can’t think of anyone who deserves it more! Unplug and enjoy!

Hope you get some quality time for yourself and come back refreshed and raring to go!

The body needs rest. Take all the time you need.
.-= MadMadMargo´s last blog ..The Need For Speed! =-.
Good post, amen. That was me this weekend. I feel guilty when I’m not trying to write, but then some days you just need to veg. Looking forward to your inspiration soon…the posts will get written!
.-= Kelly´s last blog ..How much is “too much” information? =-.
I’m there with ya babe… so… tired… or as my cousin would say ‘plumb wore out’
Take your time. Your eyes need time to rest and your brain cells need time to grow back. (I’m optimistic for you–mine never do!) I’ve been feeling tired too. Pre-spring mental fog…
.-= frogmama´s last blog ..Llamas do too moo =-.
Yes. Sometimes I feel this way too. You’ve done pretty cool things for this site, and little time for yourself is a very nice thing.

Been there, done that. Lately, I’ve been too tired to blog much. I mostly just comment. I want to write, I’ve got great ideas, I’m just too tired. I hate being tired.
Anyway, don’t feel bad. Get rested, take care of important business, and then drag your larger than size-4 ass back in here and keep us entertained. We can’t go very long without you….

Welcome to my wall. I hit it two weeks ago. Hell, who am I kidding…a month ago. I’m clawing my way over the top though.
I’m leaning down with hand open ready to help lift you up when your ready. 😉
BTW, I will do the Tribal Blog thingy. Its on my to do list. Once again, thanks for believing. Your part of what gave me that first boost up the wall. =)
.-= peedee´s last blog ..Just call me Carlton Fisk =-.
I totally get it and have those days myself.
Take a day or two to find your mojo.

That is the time when I run to 7-11 and get a Java Monster. Yup, really healthy, don’t you think?
You deserve sleep for SURE…. get some, don’t feel guilty and don’t think about what isn’t getting done. It will all be there, rest or no rest!

Oh yeah, been there and done that! It’s always a great thing to let the body regroup itself!

Know how you feel, Jen. I’ve been hitting the wall lately, and decided to not do a daily post. It’s not that I don’t have the time, I’m retired for crying out loud. Just needed a break. Good luck!

I’ve also been in your situation and all you can do is take some time off to calm yourself. I write for blogs because it allows me a freedom to take time off as I didn’t have working 9-5. i get my rest also and will never work that grind again.
I hear ya and know exactly what you’re talking about. Sometimes you need to do nothing. AND don’t worry, everything will be right there waiting for you when you return! 🙂

No need to apologize, you’re one of the hardest working bloggers I know of and once in a while you need to take a break and spend all that blogging money you’re raking in, hahahahah 🙂 xo
