I've Got to Get Out More!



My husband said it well the other day. We were going for a rare drive into town when I remarked on some building and road changes that I hadn't seen before. He said, "Those aren't that new, you know. You need to get out more!"

He was right. I spend far too much time holed up in my Craft Cave and on my computer. I know that some of you can relate. I'm not very good at regulating my work time, I'm afraid. Part of the problem is that I'm trying to maintain a 5 posts a week blog schedule, on top of other social media AND preparing for all the classes I have each month. Add to that packaging and delivering orders and helping customers, and keeping up with my downline, and I don't have time for extras like house cleaning and sleep and the E word (exercise)!

I've been experiencing several health issues lately that I fear are related to this sedentary life style I'm leading and it's time to make some changes. Starting now, I am planning to cut back my blog posts to 3 a week. Two will contain card and other stamping ideas and one will feature the latest Stampin' Up! information. You can look for these posts on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.

I'm hoping you won't be too disappointed, but a healthier me means that I can serve you better and provide more services such as Product Shares, Product based classes and the occasional mini-retreat.

I do love blogging, even though I sometimes feel like I'm talking to the air, and I know I will miss posting more often, but I'm also looking forward to having a little more time to spend with my hubby and friends. After all, when you get to be in your sixties, like I am, you realize how precious the time you have left is. I don't want to spend it all in my basement.

I hope you understand and will continue to follow my blog. I will commit to making those three posts a week the best they can be. Thanks for giving me grace in this! Hugs to all!

Your health is more important than anything Heather. Take care of that. We can all live with your posting less blogs, so not to worry. Life is short. Take time to smell the roses. In my thoughts and in my prayers.

I agree Heather that blogging is not that important in the big scheme of things. Your family and your healht are way more mportant! Even 3 seems alot but I hope cutting it to 3 helps.

Hi Heather! I have cut back this year on blog posts and design teams I am on for the same reasons. Good for you of thinking of your health first. Have a great day!

Thanks, Donna! Hope you're finding that step helpful! I know I'll miss it a bit but I can't put off getting in better shape any longer.
