I’m going to take a little time…a little time to get myself in order.
Lately, I’ve been feeling myself slipping. One of the biggest ways I’ve been slipping is on getting enough sleep. And it’s not like I’ve been staying up late for a particular reason. Earlier this year, I was so excited about starting this blog that I would stay up well until midnight or sometimes later to have a post ready for the next day. This wasn’t a huge deal because I would just take a nap the next day while my daughter took hers.
However these days, my staying up has nothing to do with being what I consider productive. I just find myself staying up web-surfing or lurking on Instagram instead of tossing my phone aside and trying to get some sleep. But even on those nights, like last night, when I put my phone away and get to sleep, I wake up in the middle of the night to tinkle and can’t manage to get back to sleep. I find myself lying there with my mind racing. Or falling in and out of sleep and having crazy dreams that scare me enough to have me running back to the bathroom. (That’s when I know I’ve been watching one episode of Criminal Minds too many.)
So I’m going to take a little time to work on me—to figure out my sleep/anxiety issues and to work on getting out of the writer’s block that’s been creeping up on me these past few weeks. Don’t worry, I won’t completely fade away because I’ll still be lurking on other blogs and commenting. But, I will be taking a much welcome break from Facebook so the best way to reach me will be emailing firstname.lastname@example.org if there’s something my popped people want to tell me.
I’m planning to only be away from the PBWB (as far as writing posts are concerned) for a few weeks or so, but once I return I should have a ton of things to share with you. I should be able to check a few things off of my 101 Things in 1001 Days list like:
- #2-Travel to a city/location in the U. S. and outside the U.S. that I’ve never been before (at least the city in the U.S. part)
- #3-Have a reunion with my besties from college
- #52-Go to a concert
I’m also getting low on that homemade lotion I made Memorial Day Weekend so I should be trying out a new recipe within the next few weeks. I’ll be sure to share that with you all when I come back from my hiatus. Wish me luck!
Of course, if there’s something I just have to share with you all whether it’s on the blog or on the Popped Black Woman Blog Facebook page, I will. I’m gonna try to lay low though and live life a little so that I have more to blog about later 😉
Until next time…keep it poppin’ 😉
