You want the truth, right? Well, here it is…

by SomeGirl on September 9, 2010 · 15 comments

It’s Fraddling Friday and I have nothing to share. Sad, but true. I’ve done little things accidentally, but nothing intentionally (outside of visiting my grandparents last week). The plain truth of the matter is: I’m exhausted. And it’s extremely difficult to love others and do things for or with them when you’re worn out! (I’m sure it doesn’t help that the boys and I have been sick with a nasty cold all week)

I can tell you right now I don’t like the way I feel! Not the stuffiness in my sinus cavities or the ache in my arms, but the lack of connection with my family and friends (and the overall tiredness at the root of it). I need to do something about this! So, here’s my plan…

I’m going on a vacation! Not the kind that makes you “oooh” and “ahhh,” but the kind that makes you sit, rest, relax and breathe in new life. I’m going to step away from the computer for the next week to spend some time in the hammock and yard with my guys. I’m going to get “reconnected” with my family, my friends and my Savior.

While I’m gone I don’t want to just leave the pages of this blog empty, so, I’ve lined up some WONDERFUL bloggers to share their hearts and words with you! I think you’ll LOVE what they have to share!! I already have Thursday’s Thought Provoking post from Ashley (of AP Free Writing 101) in the cue… it’s an awe-inspiring look at the Holiness of God. I can’t wait to share it with you!

So, please stop by and say, “Hi!” to my friends! I know they’ll REALLY appreciate it! As for me, I’ll pop in on FB every now and then during my vacation (one of my favorite ways to connect) and I’ll see you back here a week from Monday! Hope you have a WONDERFUL weekend fraddling around with your loved ones (and that you get LOTS of rest)!

Enjoy your vacation! We all need some of those times to just step away and reprioritize. :)


What a great idea!! I’ve often wanted to take a blog break – but didn’t want to disappoint my frequent readers!

Enjoy your blog-vacation! I know God is going to show you some amazing things during your time of rest with Him and your family!

I’ll be back to support your guests! I love Ashley!!!

Aww… thanks! :) I can’t wait to share this post w/ you all!


You’ve been fraddling for yourself this week (by taking care of yourself and the boys while you’re all sick). Remember that it’s important to love yourself and take care of yourself so that you’ll have the resources to love others!

I’m so glad that you’re going to take next week off for you to rest and renew. It’s a wonderful idea!

Take care! Let everyone take care of you for a change. Get a lot of sleep and read a good book. That always clears my mind!


It’s definitely time you received some fraddling of your own after taking care of everyone while they were sick! Enjoy your time.



Have a great week, Michelle! You’ll be missed. I hope you all feel better from your colds and that you find the proper time to reconnect with what you are missing in your world. I’ll definitely hang around to check out your guest bloggers!

I hope that your time away is truly refreshing and rejuvenating! I also hope you get over whatever bug it is that you have at your house. It’s so easy to feel overwhelmed when you just don’t feel 100% good! Praying that God will use this time to restore you to good healthy and a stronger relationship with Him and with your family! Looking forward to meeting you at Relevant!

Good for you. We’ll miss you, but completely understand. Sometimes we just need a break. See you when you return. :-)


Good for you for recognizing and taking care of your needs so you can go on taking care of your family! Enjoy your vaca and see you on FB.

Ashley Pichea

So excited to share with your readers next week! Enjoy your “vacation” and reconnecting with your family!


Enjoy your break and i hope you feel better soon xxx


Oh, I’m so glad you’re going to rest….you need it!! I’ll miss you, friend! But we get to see eachother in a little over a month!! Woo Hoo!! =)

I think it’s great that you’ve recognized your need to take a step back and relax. I know it will do your soul good! Enjoy your week! :)


Thank you all for the sweet comments!! ♥ Michelle
