Live Real. Eat Real.

Feel The Burn…Out


I do believe I’m suffering from a bad case of bloggy burnout.  It’s not unusual for this time of year, especially for someone who has been blogging for any length of time (read: 2½ years).  I just need a break.

So, I’m going to be taking one.  On Saturday, we head down to Las Vegas for several days – Beloved is going to a conference and I’m going to spend lots of time with Darling Daughter.  We get home very late on Thursday, then turn around and pick Darling Daughter and her fella at the airport Friday evening, Oldest Son and The Young One on Saturday morning, BON (Beloved’s Only Niece) Saturday night, then head down to Hocking Hills for 4 nights on Sunday.  Darling Daughter goes home Friday afternoon, Oldest Son returns Saturday morning, and we’re going to see Emmitt Smith inducted into the Football Hall of Fame Saturday night.

In order to get ready for this, I have a TON of stuff to do here at home and the office.  I’ll probably blog some this week – I have a couple of recipes – but I may not be around to comment so much.  I’ll do my best, but I can’t make any promises.  I don’t intend to blog at all while in Vegas and will not be able to while in Hocking Hills – no internet connection.  But rest assured that I will return the second week of August, armed with photos and stories of our adventures – and maybe even a recipe or two.

That was either a threat or a promise.  Take it how you will.  😛

And have a lovely Monday, y’all.


It’s the summer time. Enjoy!
(Still will miss you though. And will also try the chicken stock recipe!)

A little blogging burnout not uncommon. Have a great time in the Hocking Hills I live near by a spend a lot of time at the caves. If you are going to do some hiking you might consider Conkle’s Hollow ridge trail

I’m well jealous. I keep on saying “Vegas next year” but I guess I’ll wait for my nipper to fly the nest before I get out there. All the best Jan.

Hey, I get the bloggy burnout issue. It’s a real energy sucker. Have a great time in Vegas and with the family. Get rejuvenated and come back with pics! :))

Have fun, enjoy yourself! I will miss you!

Gretchen says:

Good lord! First Sprite and now you? Sigh. Have a lovely and deserved rest. Though a couple of recipes would be nice. Have fun!

Either way we will miss you! But have fun and come back refreshed.

Have a great time. Our friends in Phoenix say it’s been hot Hot HOT lately so take some sun screen and drink lots of water.

Jason says:

A blog break is necessary from time to time. But please, don’t abandon your blog.

I hear ya on the bloggy burnout – taking a break is always a good remedy. But the break you’ll be taking? Sheesh, woman! I want to go with you, though I’m tired just reading all the activity!! LOL! You will be missed – but we’ll be here when you get back! 😉

Have a great great time dear Jan. Wishing you a safe and wonderful time.

BTW I was thinking of you recently. While in Sacramento at a conference, we ate out every night and I had some yummy meals. However, the BEST thing was an appetizer portion of mac and cheese. Hands down the best mac and cheese I ever had in my life. I came home and tried to duplicate it, but mine wasn’t even close. I might stalk you while you are away and see if you’ve got a recipe posted for this….

Enjoy Hocking Hills – it’s one of our favorite get-away spots. I spend days driving around taking photos of all the falling down barns and we love all the hiking and quiet countryside. We all suffer from bloggy burnout – take time off – we’ll be here when u get back – promise! xo
