Taking A Breath

I don't know how to write this.  I am taking a break from my life for a bit next week.  I head home on Tuesday (still need to book my flight) and will be staying a week or two.  Garret and I both need some time apart to think and it gives me a chance to spend some time with family and friends.  There was some issues the other evening that left us both exhausted and I finally have made the decision to take a petite break from the stress.  It also means that I have had to cut ties with a few people for a while.  Without going into details here, suffice to say there has been some words said that people didn't have a place to say, lies told and a wee bit of betrayal, and I need a break from the stress and drama.

I will still be doing the giveaway and will have G mail it out for me afterwards.  He and I are still speaking, in fact as long as we aren't arguing we're still headed to a birthday party on Sunday.  We're both working on things, but a break is needed for some perspective.  I would like to make it clear that we are not separating, just taking a breath.  

I want to thank each of you who have read here this last month and commented or e-mailed me with encouragement.  I will be posting a bit while home, though I don't know how much.  I am wanting to see some friends that I haven't seen in a while, and I will also be busy going through things we had in storage to make sure nothing useless was included (old paperwork and the like).  And I plan on spending tons of time with my grandmama and maman!  (I will say I'm a tiny bit excited to see my niece as well, just a tiny bit)  And when I'm done visiting I will be coming back here.  My birthday and our anniversary are in less than a month and I am planning on coming back in time for those!


  1. Breathing is important. I hope the break and distance and thinking help. They all sound like good ideas to me. Hang in there!

  2. I know I'm pretty new here..just came on board a couple of days ago...but I want to wish you well. Sometimes a breather is all it takes to make things clear in our lives.
    I do hope when you return, life will be smiling upon you and G.
    May bliss follow you wherever you go.

  3. Kalee,

    I hope you find the peace that you are looking for and the strength to make the right decision for yourself...whatever that may be. Good luck!

  4. Take care Kalee. Enjoy your time with your family especially that cute niece!

  5. Kalee, I'll be praying for both for you and G. May this breather make a clearer vision for your marriage. Yes, hang in there! Love to both of you!!

  6. Dear Kalee,

    I am thinking of you and G at the moment. I think a petite pause from life is always a good thing - and time and space often helps to heal wounds from words and actions and after that pain has subsided you can focus on the issues with less emotion and work out who and what the important things are for you to keep in your life, or to cut ties with.

    I hope your time at home in a new place is restful, and the change of scenery lets you relax and that you enjoy the time with family and friends.

    I am thinking of you! I hope you can do some fun and frivolous things and take the break from the stress you need.


  7. I hope you have a relaxing and renewing time back at home. Thinking of you.
