An Intentional Break
I was going to leave my blog as is and let passersby murmur about my work ethic and mental health, but I couldn’t accept having “The Butte Pirate Party” as my last words during my break.
And yes, I am taking a break. A planned one. Versus the unintentional and extremely stressful OH-CRAP-I-HAVE-NO-POST-AND-I-FAIL-AT-LIFE breaks I’ve been taking. I’m not even sure one can take a break from something as inconsistent as this blog has been lately, but I’m doing it. So there. Making the impossible possible.
I will be returning in mid to late October filled with clarity and drive and purpose and vigor. I will also be in better physical shape, but that probably won’t be apparent to you without photos. I will not be posting photos. Unless my freshly rippling abs camouflage my stretch marks, in which case a Holstein bikini is in order.
I want this blog to be special. I want it to be more than just funny. I’ve realized I don’t love posting short, frivolous comics and I don’t enjoy SAT words nearly as much as I had anticipated. I’ve also realized drawing pictures takes me SEVERAL ETERNITIES and my wife-ing and mothering have to be run with mathematical precision for full-length posts to even attempt to exist.
That is what I’m doing over the next few weeks. Conquering wifely and motherly mathematical precision.
Oh, and also reading lots of books and “finding myself”.
That doesn’t seem overambitious to me, which may be a testament to my tendency to underestimate tasks. I mean, I’m not super lost. Just a little lost. Like, I’m in the room somewhere but not quite sure if I’m in the wardrobe or under the bed or twisted into a suitcase. I’m close, is what I’m saying. And not close to solving every question of me but definitely close to at least knowing myself well enough to figure out the direction of my dang blog.
I love you all and I shall return.
