Here we are in the final days of the A to Z challenge, and I’ve skipped a few letters. The good thing is I don’t think anyone has noticed. Maybe they are too nice to say anything, but I lean toward the theory that they are too busy with their own posts to notice. (hahah).

One of the biggest problems I had was no real theme. If I would've had a theme, I could've made it, but I couldn't think of one to really motivate me. Also, I haven’t been able to return comments on other blogs in the last couple of weeks because I started a new job. Then I have two critique partners who need me to read their stuff. Plus with my kids and all the domestic duties = zero free time.
So…I decided to take a vacation from blogging and perhaps starting back up in the fall. Although, I will blog if I have something new and exciting to talk about in the rare event it occurs. Of course, I will still visit my blog friends. I always have to know what you are going to say next.

Anyway, since I can’t fully participate, I’m going to have to call it quits on A to Z. However, I plan to visit everyone who commented on my blog no matter how long it takes.

Best of luck to all the other A to Zers!

You are so close though!
The first year I did it without a theme and it was difficult. My Q was Q*Bert and the movie Q. (Yes, that really bad 80's film.) Last three years with a theme has been much easier.
Enjoy some time off and hope we see you around now and then!

Hooray for a new job!

I admit, I hadn't noticed you'd missed posts. I claim the fact that I'm checking so many blogs I don't notice if I miss one for a couple of days.

I totally get having to bow out. Will keep an eye on your blog though, as I enjoy reading your posts.

I have a feeling I shall fail with "X" tomorrow. Nothing is inspiring me.

Congrats on your new job!

If you hadn't said no-one would have noticed! Or, at least, no-one would have made a fuss about it - because I have noticed a few others either missing letters or being behind, but so what? It's tiring even without a new job. All the best.

Alex: I feel I got close enough to finishing to be satisfied with it. This is the most I ever blogged.

PT: Thanks!

Rinelle: Just knowing someone enjoys my posts makes it worth it.

Mike: You will finish all the way.

Julia: Thanks

MadelineAnn: Yeah, I know they would have never realized. hehehe.
