Outta Here

I’m not quite certain how to put this, so here goes – I’m gone. Outta here. I’m taking a rest (sabbatical really). I feel as if things are closing in on me, and the constant need to try to be funny, to think of things to write about, etc. are wearing on me. I can’t do this for a while. It will only be for a little bit – I’m planning on returning on the 16th. I may still pop up on one of your blogs here and there – not planning to, but things can happen. No spamarama during that time either – I just don’t have a funny drop in my body at the moment. Typing is becoming painful too – grabbing the sheet and turning her several times a day is aggravating my arthritis and my fingers are stiffening up. I’m still available by email if you want to pop me a line, just expect my answers to be short as, like I said, typing is painful. I think the voting for the American Title Contest starts the 16th too – Meretta will let me know. Until then, I plan to do a little reading and resting – so do check in on Isn’t It Romantic for reviews – there should be one by the weekend.

And Kim, your book will be mailed by the weekend.


Take care, behave – because you never know when I might pop in.

Love to you all.

*huge hugs* I completely understand your need to take a break. Wishing you lots of nekkid muses (of the hugh variety *g*) and some quality time for yourself. Take care of you!

Take care of yourself, and FEEL BETTER.

Rachael said...

I check your blog every day since discovering it. I am really sorry to hear that you won't be online for awhile. I hope you feel better and get some rest. Maybe some meditation might help. Light some candles and relax with your books. Here's a giant virtual hug to you! *HUGGGGGGGGGS*

Brandy said...

Aw, Bailey, take care of yourself for a change. I hope you feel better soon. I'm around if you need anything I can do from so far away. We'll miss you, but I'm also pretty sure we all understand. Hugs and Warm Wishes to you.(I'm still raying for you sweetie.)

Michele said...

Oh, Bailey... **HUGS**

Perfectly understandable.
I hope you can find help soon. I think the time is coming where you need support for your Mom and in doing so, for you too.

My thoughts are with you plus well wishes for plently of rest and healing.

Until Whenever .... ;-)

Diane said...

qidqrdYou take care too. You'll be no use to your mom if you're in total pain yourself. See you soon. (((HUGS)))

Bernita said...

Hugs from me, too.

Devon Ellington said...

Feel better soon.

Joely Sue Burkhart said...

(((((Bailey))))) If you need anything, cyber hugs, someone to listen, just shoot me an e-mail. We'll miss you, but totally understand.

You'll be missed. Take care of yourself.

((((Bailey))))
The important thing is to take care of yourself. You know we will all be waiting for you when you get back.

Thoughts and prayers go with you.

Meretta said...

It's good to rest and recharge and I'm glad you're taking the time to do it!

So take nice deep breathes and we'll be here awaiting your return.

Hugs, my friend.

Siobhan said...

Bailey, I understand totally. You need a break. You need to rest. You need some "me time". I hope you will get it. I was checking your blog every day but my computer was only showing last Saturday's. I was worried. Then today I pressed the refresh button and found what I'd been missing. So I know how much I'm going to miss you. I'll be thinking of you and praying that your pain will ease and that somehow you will get help with your mom.

Tori Lennox said...

Lots of hugs, sweetie. Hang in there. We'll miss you while you're gone.

Melissa Marsh said...

Take some much-needed time for yourself. Hugs!

Susan said...

*big hugs* I understand completely. You HAVE to take care of yourself first and foremost or you will be no use to your mom.

I'll keep in touch with you but don't feel the need to respond. My prayers are with you!

catslady said...

We'll all miss you but like Michele said - until whenever. This should be something you want to do and not something you feel you have to do. We'll all be here when/if you feel up to it. Just relax and take care of yourself.

Carol said...

Taking a break when you need one is a good thing to do. Take care of yourself. We will be here when you feel like chatting again. Big hugs!

Jordan Summers said...

Take care of yourself. (((Hugs))) Stay away as long as you need to. You know everyone will be here when you decide to come back. I've talked to a lot of people lately who've peaked on the blogging. You are not alone.

Jill said...

Take care of yourself, I'll be thinking of you!!!

Kelly said...

Take care of yourself. We'll still be here when you return.

Marty said...

Many hugs, Bailey...will be thinking of you. Take good care.

Lexi said...

Aw, Bailey, I'm sorry to hear it. BUT take care of yourself and get back to us when you can. You'll be in my thoughts.

Sigrun said...

Bailey, big hugs, I really admire you for being funny. I don't know where you found the strength to do it. It really wasn't expected.

You just go ahead and do what you *have* to do and don't worry about us. I'm sure we'll all be thinking of, and praying for, you and your mom. We won't forget you. As you saw, I've had to pull back a little too. And I don't even have to think of something funny.

Just take care of yourself and as long as you can of your mom.

Hugs and prayers.

Scott said...

Bailey, I totally understand. I have a similar message on my blog today, that I'll be an infrequent visitor because I need to write more. Free time is a commodity. In your case, it sounds like arthritis is playing a role in it too. I hope you are ok. You're always my blog buddy, and your link is safe with me.

I'll check in over the weekend about the big game.

Dennie McDonald said...

(((Bailey))) - keep in touch and will be thinking of you - get some good rest!

Conserve your strength.

Just to let you know my thoughts, hugs and prayers are with you.

Olga said...

Bailey, we'll miss you so much - and lots, lots, lots of hugs!

Sandy J said...

Bailey, rest well. And come back soon!

Fannie said...

I have been away for a while taking care of me so I really understand where you are. Prayers and hugs and a sympathetic ear are here if needed. The prayers are going up anyway.Your Mom will have good care and you need time away from her to heal yourself. God Bless. Take care and Hugs

Daisy Dexter Dobbs said...

God knows you need and deserve a good rest, Eve. You have to do what’s right for you now, and if that means taking a break from blogging, then by all means do it. We all care about you and we’ll be here when you get back. You’re in my thoughts and prayers.

KimW said...

ahhhh, Bailey, take care of yourself. Don't worry about the book. You have more important things to do. I can wait.
