hiatus again.

Sometimes I just want to run for the hills and never come back. (And take my baby with me of course.)

I think I better go on hiatus for a while. I’ll be back when I have a better attitude.



  • Alissa

    SAJ please come back soon (my days won’t be the same). I hope everything is ok. I’ll send positive thoughts your way.

  • Melissa

    Aw, I hope you feel better soon. Don’t be afraid to ask a friend to take
    the bug off of your hands so you can have some time all alone. I think
    all mom’s need to decompress alone sometimes. Girl, check into a hotel
    for a night if you have to. Be selfish!!

  • Julie

    Oh, and I just found your blog! And I love it. The monthly movies are too cute, but then again so is your precious bug. Come back soon, please!

  • Susie

    Ugh. I hope you’re feeling better soon. We all get this way sometimes, especially those of us with kids!

    Also, I hope you don’t get mad at me for pointing this out, but 4 weeks ago you had an emotional few days, and you joked about how we’d remind you of it a month later, because you were PMSing… You may be “post” MS instead of “pre” MS, but I’d just like to remind you that in general it takes a good year or so a woman’s hormones to settle down after having a baby.

    I know it’s not the answer to everything (I hate it when I have a PMS meltdown at my husband and once I realize what’s going on, I lose all credibility — whatever had set me off still would have upset me if I had been hormonally normal, it’s just that I probably wouldn’t have hit the ceiling over it), but it could be a factor.

    Hang in there! Sending virtual hugs your way…

  • Susie

    Hmm… I’m worried now that I’ve made it sound like if you’re upset you must have PMS. That’s awful. I’m sorry — I swear that’s not what I meant…

  • Becky Z

    It’ll be ok SAJ. Just think, I have 2 more weeks (give or take ofcourse). Yikes, I can hardly believe where the time went. I’m thinking of you.

  • BeachMama

    Will miss you, hope you feel better soon. We all need a hiatus every once in a while.

    I am taking mine in California, only wish I was going to be closer to you to stop by for a Starbucks. Will be in San Diego if you need a trip to the zoo.

  • margalit

    Take the time that you need to bring order to your frazzle, but come back soon because I know I’m not the only one that needs a daily fix of Baby Bug to make my day complete!

  • MamaBear

    Take me with you! We’d have fun with our babies. How about some tropical beach location on a far away island with no form of communication with real world? Oh if only… even for a week or so, it would help… but maybe I’d stay. Lately every day I want to burry my head in sand or run away…. I do not want to go to work, that’s for sure!!!!!!!

  • Bethany

    I am sorry you are feeling overwhelmed. I hope the hiatus helps you sort things out. I’ll pray for you.

    On a selfish note, this is the third of the five blogs I read that has gone on hiatus or permanently ended in the past two weeks! Is there some sort of hiatus flu going around the blogosphere?

  • CrankMama

    Secret Agent,
    Please don’t feel you have to recuse yourself if you’re feeling down or blue or have a “bad attitude”… No one is perfect. And many of us are far less perfect than you :) Maybe you could view this as a place to express yourself when you’re feeling down…. ?? Just a thought…

  • Clownfish

    Hey B, all the best to you in your time away. FYI, gave it a good try but I’m heading back to AZ about 10/7. So if you ever want to shoot desert photos, your guest room awaits you.

  • Felix

    I didn’t use to be too emotional around that time of month but I have definitely noticed it more since I had Baby Felix. Just hoping it passes soon and I can get back to being my normal self. The part that actually bugs me the most is getting emotional or sappy at movies and such – I NEVER used to do that! Oh well. Pregnancy sure changes you hormonally and physically – not to mention the new added responsibility of taking care of a baby. Hope you feel yourself again soon. Enjoy your time off – but come back soon – I miss your blog. We’ll have to get Baby Bug and Baby Felix together again soon for a play day. :)
