Where have I been?

Drowning in work, mostly.

Hey guys, Kayla Ann here with an update on life. Usually I stay away from these kind of blog posts because they seem very focused on myself instead of the community, but I also feel that I owe an explanation. Many of you have read my exhortations to remain a part of community, reading other posts, commenting on other blogs, reciprocating responses with other bloggers, etc. Well, I’ll admit, I have not done a great job of this lately.

As some of you may recall, I started a new job in August as a full time English teacher at a Middle School. It was a job I had prayed and waited for. I love my job, and because I love it so much, I put almost everything I have into it. It has been a hard struggle lately to find the balance between giving enough of myself and not too much of myself. I am having to find boundaries between my work life and my home life for my own mental and emotional health. All that to say, there hasn’t been a ton of time for blogging.

I did have some posts pre-scheduled so that I did not disappear from the blogging sphere, but I haven’t really been able to visit and respond as I would like. I’m still working on finding that balance between work and home and so I ask for patience from my blogging friends. All this to say:

I do not want you to feel as though I have dipped out, I’m here, waving through the window.

  1. Always great to hear from you Kaylaann, and don’t worry I know life get’s busy…. I’ll always be here…. I’ve not been drowning, but have managed to stay floating on top of the water, despite my ongoing difficulties, although i feel I’m starting to swim free of the undertow, and looking forward to betterer times ahead…xxxx… Be kind to yourself…..

  2. I think that we all go through blogging phases. You blog to blog then don’t then have some genuine content to get out there so do.

    You’re right about maybe not doing too many of ‘these sort of posts’ but I actually found it nice to learn a little more. Sometimes us bloggers can be hidden behind our subject but it’s nice to get to know who we follow a little more.
