A little break... or a long one.

I get up at 4:30 a.m. and go to the gym/running with my friend for 45 minutes, then I have a few hours of medical transcription work to get done. I wake up my oldest son at 6:20 a.m. to get ready for school, and then my other children get up around 7 a.m. (or sooner).

I baby-sit several children five days of the week and they usually arrive between 7:30-8:00 a.m. and stay until 3:30-4:00 p.m., I don’t like to be on the computer when I have little children to care for.

My children get home from school around 3:45 p.m., and then they need help with homework, getting dinner ready, chores, grocery shopping, appointments, time with family, etc….

I know my children HATE to see me working on the computer because then I can’t give my full attention to them. If I am on the computer while my daughter Aubrey is awake, she is NOT happy.

There are only a few things that I can eliminate from my schedule to allow more time with my children, my computer use is one of those (Aubrey is already awake and wanting my attention as I type this!)

So, I am at a crossroads of whether or not to continue with my blog…. Give me a week and I will see how I feel then. I need to spend some time with my family.


  1. I understand needing more time with family and computer time needing to go, but I will miss your blog. I hope you keep it up, but will understand.

  2. I have never commeted but I have read every post. I love you blog, but I can understand spending more time with your family. I will miss your blog, please let us know what you deside to do!

    God Bless

  3. Camille,

    I appreciate you letting many of us read your beautiful and inspiring adoption story. It has given me new insights about adoption and has made me very excited about the possibility of pursing this journey one day. It does take time to put a blog together and I admire you for putting your family first. If you decide to take a break from your blog it will be missed...but enjoy every second with your family-- Time goes by soooo fast! Thanks again for sharing your experience with me!!!

  4. I got it, we can go work out at 3:30 am and then you can have an hour to blog before Aubrey wakes up!!!

  5. Aww, we don't want you to quit Camille though! You're a mom! You can figure out some more time management to cram us in!!! :)

  6. Okay, so only a little break! I realized that writing is soothing to my soul and a great outlet for me as a woman and a mother. Thank you everyone for your kind comments, I will be back! :)

  7. Yay! I admire your post, but I'm glad you're going to continue. I, too, have banned myself from sitting at the computer when my son is awake. In my short time on the internet each week, your blog is one thing I choose to look at. Thank you!
