Yes, I have been absent from Facebook and Pinterest and this blog for a while now. There is a reason. I am just plain tired. Tired of housework, tired of babies/kids crying, tired of laundry, tired of not being able to work on art or jewelry orders even though we have lots of them. I am also tired of the massive quantities of visual stimulation and images/ideas/info on the internet. I just needed a break from all of it. I needed to unplug myself from it all in hopes to feel a little more human. I am not sure it has worked. I think I will "go dark" for awhile longer and see if it helps me feel a little more sane. After all, when I didn't check my 3 email accounts for 2 days I had over 158 real emails that needed attending to. That is just plain crazy!!!
