It's time to make it official. I need to put my blog on hiatus.
Unfortunately, I was rather naive in my thinking, and completely uneducated when it came to living with, and through, the treatment of breast cancer, complicated by an inflammatory disease.
Yesterday was the one year anniversary of learning that the lump in my breast was cancer. Today I feel the impact of that news far more deeply than I ever thought I would. To keep things simple I'll just say that I continue to have a very difficult time tolerating the side effects of medication that I need to take to combat the chance of recurrence. That chance is significant enough to make this process worthwhile, and allowing time is the only way to see it through. What energy I do have is needed to keep myself going through the renovation process, which continues, but seemingly at a snails pace.
If I have a great day, I may dive in and happily create and pop myself in here, but I need to lift the idea of having a blog from my shoulders for now. I will miss you all, and I hope to return sooner than later (and I most certainly will return!), but my heart and hands need a rest, officially.
I do move in and out of Face Book more regularly and casually, if you'd like to connect with me there.
Until a time not so long from now,
I take pause,
with peace and love, Karin
