You know what a fab life I have and how very much I love doing all that I do, but there is only one of me and my plate is waaaaaaaay full. I have been doing dandy balancing it all, but this passed weekend about killed me. I was absolutely exhausted, so some things had to give.

I stepped down from working at the range. I am very busy during the week doing EMT classes and studying and riding on the ambulance and while I do spend a lot of time with the kiddos doing homework and reading books at night, there isn’t a lot of time left for fun. My weekends need to be(and I want them to be) with my family.

M’s books are finally arriving this week, so we will be getting much more serious about school. She has read a lot(gives me tons of free time) and has written several papers, but soon I will have to really buckle down which will not leave me a whole lot of time for blogging.

I will most likely make my quick little posts on FaceBook and only blog when there is something really relevant to guns, knives, training, and/or the 2nd Amendment.

I have fallen way behind in reading other blogs, but I am hopefully that I will be able to get back to it on a more regular basis. I learn so much and I really enjoy staying in touch with everyone through their writing.

I am not going away, but you will see less of me.

Now, back to my very large laundry pile.

  1. Ya gotta take care of you and family. THAT is what matters. You know we’re here when you want to talk/comment/post/whatever.

    Kudos to you for reassessing and keeping your family at the top of the list.

  2. I did the same thing, I stepped back – way back – from my blog when I realized I was doing more writing than interacting with my loved ones.

    Realizing where your priorities lie is important.

    Good for you. 🙂

  3. Self and Family first, second, third . . . I’ll be around when you are.

    Where I come from there is no goodbye. There is only, “See you later.”

  4. You sound like my boss, who I periodically instruct on a single word – “No” – because he doesn’t seem to grasp that it can actually be used once his life is full up with business.

    You’ll stay on blogrolls, and we still catch you when you do decide to post.

  5. I feel you, girlfriend.

    Things to see and people to do, or something like that.

    and you KNOW how fab MY life is…

  6. My heart stopped; I thought you were going to stop blogging! Whew, dodged that bullet.

    We understand the need for balance, so just take care of you.

  7. You and your beautiful family should come first, blogging comes when you have time. Take care!

  8. We’ll miss you every day that you don’t post.

    But on the other hand, if you’re doing laundry, I’ve got quite a batch here that I can send down UPS. 😉

  9. Hey Girl, Good luck and Thanks for the blog. Keep your family first and study hard for E.M.T… Joe

  10. You just do what you need to do! With home schooling, EMT work, and just taking care of family, you’re hands are full. Don’t forget to keep up with some shooty goodness, though! We’ll be here when you need to share things on your blog or if you need us in any way! – tc

  11. Sigh, now we’ll never get the lowdown on the Shield. That’s okay, be that way. 🙂

    There are only so many hours in a day and priorities must be set.

    Do what ya gotta do.

  12. I’m in the same boat, as I’m starting school again and taking more classes than I really should be while working full time.

    Real life is way more important than blogging anyway.

  13. I concur with all the above ! Take care of yourself and your family first ! Will wait for the nuggets of info in due time !

  14. Are you saying that we students and shooters at FPF Training will henceforth be bereft of your grace, skills, and support. You do a lot of good there, especially to categories of shooters with you are easily able to connect. What are we to do!

    • Aren’t you kind. I truly did enjoy working at FPF, but yes, unfortunately I will no longer be at the courses.

      I really do hope you will keep in touch!!!
