Hey guys, I’m about to do something I’ve been thinking about for a while now. I’m going on a break from blogging.
I’ve been blogging since 2001 and I haven’t taken a break for a long time. I even discussed it with my children.
Ben, 15, said I should definitely take a break.
Chris, 9, was worried. “What will you do mommy?”
“I want to sleep for a month.”
“But what if your friends want to visit you?”
“Then I will wake up.”
Funny, Chris thought I was literally going to sleep for a month.

So much has been going on. As I write this, I am nursing a migraine. My eyesight has gotten worse overnight and I saw Dr. Alnette Tan earlier at American Eye. Dr. Alnette said though my eyes have a 75 grade on the left, they are looking good. No cataract. Just normal signs of aging.

Here’s what I plan to do during my break:
1) Drink less Coke. Shrink my tummy. Change my diet.
2) Lose weight.
3) Clean my house.
4) Take care of the children’s needs. Take care of me.
5) Collect money, cause many people owe me…. so hard to collect. I have enough money to collect to support my lifestyle until I figure out what I need to do next.

Hopefully these will improve mind and body. I haven’t been feeling well in a while. I just want to stop looking at numbers. Social media has been cluttering my life.
For a while now I was blogging to support my shopping, but now I realize I can do with less stuff, less clutter.
I don’t know what the next step is, but I leave it up to God. I just want to clear my mind of junk and clutter. It must be done.
Meanwhile I want to thank all of you who have been with me through many years. You know how to reach me.

Wish me luck on my journey.
