Well, I see that it has been 18 days since I last posted anything. I have no internet access at home, and I am way too busy at work to be writing blog posts. It's funny, I was completely overwhelmed at the seminary, and felt like I would never catch up--I never did--but I sometimes seemed to be able to find time to write there--mostly at lunch and before 8:00. At the parish, I am very busy, but not at all overwhelmed. Still, I never have time to write, even when I'm there early, and if I finish eating early, I go back to work. 

It shouldn't be any suprise to anyone--if anyone is even still checking the blog except my devoted spambots--that I plan to put the blog on hold for a while. I need some distraction-free time to pray and--well, mostly to pray.  So, I won't be posting anything until at least Advent, and maybe until Christmas, but I don't know if I can resist the lure of Advent. I hope to be writing during my time away, but I frequently hope that without results.

I'll probably turn off the comments sometime tomorrow, but the blog will still be up. 

For those of you who are Facebook friends, I have most of you hidden now so I won't be seeing what you say. I'll basically only be using Facebook to connect with my adult children and a few others for the next few months. If you need to let me know something for some reason, you can inbox on Facebook, or I think my email address is on my blogger info page. But I suspect you won't need to reach me.

I've asked Maclin at Light on Dark Water to let the folks there know when we move back home and when I start up the blog again, and I'll put something on Facebook, too.

God Bless you all, and thank you for reading. I'll miss you. Pray for me.



  1. Will do, Janet. I'm sad to see you go, even if only for a while, but it's an understandable course given all the more important things to which you must attend.

    I've got you on my blog feed, so whenever you do return I'll get a notification, and I'll come back!

  2. I've been checking here on a regular basis, even though I've seldom said anything.

    Will miss your posts. Take care.

  3. Same here. I'll miss you. But then, I miss you anyway.

  4. Janet, I have felt very priviledged. To read your blog. I have learned so much and felt a true sisterhood. Your insights are truly a gift. God bless you and your family.
