I've been AWOL but with good reason

It's been a frustrating month around here, my husband was laid off last month and so its meant doubling my efforts to earn money to cover what he used to as well as what has always been my responsibility to take care of.

Needless to say that has left little or no personal time for me to be able to visit online (or off). It's meant late hours and sometimes all nighters, so I'm pretty wore out. I had really planned to get back into a regular earning schedule this year but hadn't wanted (as I discussed before) to get back into the schedule from 2013, but that is exactly what I've had to do.

So if you don't see me for awhile, its not that I've forgotten you -- its just that right now I'm a little overwhelmed and my time is definitely not my own.

Good luck with that. I've never had the luxury of a 2nd person with the potential to bring in money so it's always been down to me to provide.

I'm so sorry to hear that. I know several people facing the same thing. I hope things get better soon.

Real life has to take precedent. We will all still be here whenever you have the time to be back. :)

Good luck with earning enough until he can get back working. Hopefully he will be working again soon so you can have time to yourself again.

Hopefully, your husband's time without work is brief.

Yea, I do understand this and it resonates with me too
life has to be lived and the good things of life have to be had too
and money is mightily needed for these things
you will always be here in spirit
and then when you make a post, we would know that you are also bodily here
do have a good ay

You definitely have to prioritize right now what is going to bring in the most money. Unfortunately, that usually isn't writing.

I hope your husband gets called back to work at his old job, or finds a new job, soon.
