Snippets and Tidbits - Going on Leave

I had an enormous "Snippets and Tidbits" post to share with you all. It was so gigantic, as a matter of fact, because I simply didn't have the time to finish it - so I kept on adding article links, recipe links, and book links - without having the time to add pictures and write down my own notes to go with the links.

As the post grew to mammoth size - and I still couldn't finish it - I finally had to admit the sad truth.

I just don't have time for this right now.

Like it or not, the time is just not there. Life is too crazy, and my workload right now is just too much. I'd tell you all about it, but... I don't have time. (Not having time to write about why I don't have time. Funny, that.)

And so I ended up deleting the entire post (*sob*) and forcibly putting myself on "Snippets and Tidbits" sabbatical - for at least three months, possibly permanently.

I adore sharing links for articles, blog posts, recipes, and books. I'm just like that. When I find something I love, my immediate reaction is to share it with everyone I know. That is, in fact, what has been hardest about leaving Facebook - not getting to share fun things with friends.

But the fact remains that there just is no time. And while I occasionally can pen a short blog post, I don't have the extra time or energy for a regular feature that is quite labor-intensive to put together.

And that's that!

But to appease my insatiable appetite for sharing thigns, I may just tag random links on to other posts, just to keep my hand in.

Like this one!

Accepting Children with a Grateful Heart @ Children Are a Blessing - It's good! Go read it!

And this one!

Sorry. Lost control of myself for a minute. (*deep breathing*)

But I'm going to try to keep it to a minimum. If I don't, y'all can reach out through the internet and slap me silly.



  1. I always like your tidbits. It's nice keeping up with ya. But I would be the last person to tell you to spend more time online. :-D See you when you get back!

    1. Ah, you're sweet, Cindy! Thanks for your sweet words. I love putting those S&T posts together - hopefully I can get back to it some time. :)

  2. This makes sense. May your days be filled with joy. Thanks for the link to that post about children . . . I'm sinking into a walloping depression right now . . . I can see it happening, but I feel as if I'm helpless to stop it. I'm taking all of the encouragement I can get. :)

    1. Anne, I'm so sorry to hear that! I'll email you.

  3. Thanks so much for sharing my post Diana! I completely understand your feelings of having too much on your plate. I am there right now! Blessings to you and your sweet family.

    1. Nicole, thanks for visiting! I think a lot of us homeschooling mamas are in the same place - so much to blog about, so little time. Always a challenge!! :)


I love to hear from you! All kind and thoughtful comments will be published; all inconsiderate or hurtful comments will be deleted quietly without comment. Thanks for visiting!
