Blogging Hiatus


As any of you who read my blog regularly have noticed, I haven’t blogged in a long time, and I don’t know when I will blog again. There’s just been too much going on, and I’m not coping with it all physically, mentally or emotionally very well. Nothing “unbloggable” necessarily, just one thing after the other, on top of another. We leave for Chicago 2 weeks from today, and I’m hoping that my time there provides me with a little more balance. My pregnancy is going along fine though. 18 weeks today, and baby is healthy. I would love to blame the pregnancy hormones on the way I have been feeling the last few months, so I think I will. I still read lots of blogs, but I can’t find the energy or motivation to comment most of the time, so I apologize for that. Not everything going on is bad news, but even the good news seems overwhelming, and scary these days (no, it’s not twins). Thanks for the calls and e-mails asking where I’ve been and if I’m okay. I’m still here, but the answer to the 2nd question is a bit iffy at the moment. Hopefully I’ll pull it together soon and feel like writing a real blog, but for now I’m taking an indefinite break, if only I could do that in real life, eh?


About Brenda in Nagano

Originally from Chicago, I knew I was destined to spend the rest of my life in Japan the moment I set foot in the country at the tender age of 16. However, I was quite intent on spending that rest of my life in a major city with a full on career, until my Japanese Prince Charming came trotting down from the mountains of Nagano to sweep me off my feet and whisk me away, turning my whole life plan on its head. Two months after moving to Nagano I gave birth to our little Princess Charming, so now I am officially a SAHM and teach a little belly dance on the side.

  1. Have a fabulous time! Soak up the love, let Sara soak up some not-mummy love, relax, refresh, rejuvenate, reinvigorate and don’t forget lots of shopping on the side!

    But do come back, yeah?


  2. Hoping your trip home is what you need and you come back relaxed and ready to blog again!

    We will all be here when you feel up to blogging again. Until then take care 🙂
