Missed Again & an Announcement

Yes, Phil Collins said it best when he said, "Ah, I missed again."

After setting myself up last week, I did in fact miss a day in the 30K in 30 Days challenge. And yes, that means it's embarrassing video time!

(That's the penalty for missing a day--warning to all those who said they wanted to jump on for April.)

I'm not sure which is more embarrassing, my silly face at the start there, or the fact that I totally missed my foot on my first hacky sack attempt.

Anywho, for your amusement, here I go (again). With my lovely assistant Laura; videography by Cat.


And now for the announcement: I'm taking a blog break for the month of April. 

It's just too much, guys, and most of you are doing the A-Z Challenge (link) anyway. So I know you'll be too busy to miss me. It's a far more selfless thing I do...

No, I'll just be over here writing and working like crazy, and unless I miss a day, I won't be posting again until May 7. So if something major happens, would someone please shoot me an email? Thanks!

Have a super month, reader- and writer-friends! I'll be thinking of you. Back soon~ <3

Have a fantastic break, hon! Make it a relaxing time. Don't forget to do something for yourself, at least as some point. lol

Have a wonderful break and happy writing!

I wish I could have it off but with my book coming out, I can't afford to be missing from the blogisphere. See you May 7th!

Chris Fries said...

Awesome video!!!! That rocked, Leigh!

And I totally get the 'gotta take a break' thing. In a moment of temporary insanity, I signed up for the A-to-Z, so no my precious free time will be spent writing even less... What the heck was I thinking?!?!?

Get rested, renewed, and restored, lady! Best wishes and warm thoughts! See you in May!!!

Tracy Jo said...

I love it! Great video...you are too cute. Have a fantastic break!! It will be nice to focus but we will miss you. At least we have FB. ;-) Oh and I know I was big talker about maybe jumping in...I decided that was not a good idea. You would be watching lots of silly videos of me! Have a great month, my friend!

Adrienne said...

Seems like lots of people are using A-Z as a blessing in disguise. Maybe I should take advantage too...

See you in May. :)

@Chris--Thanks, man! Just rolling in from spring break, and I'm feeling like I've got everything backwards. Good luck w/A-Z! :o)

@Margo--Thanks and Thanks for the award! I'm on fire... sort of. :D

@LBD--Thanks, and that hacky sack is a skill! ;p Til May~

@ATL--I thought about that, actually! But I think it not being a Monday would've given me away. Maybe... ;o)

@PK--Ahh, we keep missing each other it seems! But I'll meet you on the flip flop. Will it be at the beach??? :o) <3

Alina said...

Yay, hacky sack champ. Glad I get to see you in the real world even as I miss you in blog-land. :D

M Pax said...

Loved the video, Leigh. Your hackey sac talents are way above mine. :)

I know what you mean. I'm feeling overwhelmed, too. Maybe I'll take a break in late June or early July.

I'm formatting today. :) So came to get your url.

Blogger did play a dirty trick. I commented, I swear! The video is awesome. Look at you old pro. And thanks for all your encouragement this last month. I'm on the home stretch, and I'm gonna finish soon. I swear!

walk2write said...

Good for you! I hope you're enjoying the break and getting lots of work done. See you when you get back to the blog. Sometimes I like to fall off the face of the Blog World too and then reappear. Very refreshing!
