It's DWTS and Studying for me

Posted: Thursday, October 23, 2008 by Travis Cody in

Hey gang!

My business trip to New York really put me behind with my certificate program. So I'm going to have to step way back with my blogging over the next few weeks to catch up.

I'll still do my Dancing with the Stars reviews two days a week. But other posts and blog visits will have to wait until I get caught up.

GAH! I just remembered that Nov 1 is coming up fast, and that means National Novel Writing Month.

I either need to organize better, or cut back.

Thanks for understanding!

    I am so with you as far as not enough hours in the day.

    I'm torn about NANO this year. I think it's more realistic for me to do NANOBLOPO *grin*

  1. No problem. We'll see you when we see you. I read your posts on the dancing but don't often comment because I don't watch it and don't really have anything to ad.

    Luck on gettting all your stuff done.

    Study hard and make us proud!

  1. Study Travis. You have other more important things to attend to right now. We'll see you when we see you. Big hug. :)

  1. You study. We'll be here when you get back. I'm coming off of hiatus, and already someone has read my post. So if you step back and study, we'll all wait patiently.

    Studying has to come first. You'll catch up when you have a little time. :)

    You know, I am home all day, every day, only really have to worry about cooking supper and seeing that the kids are ok and then, read my blog favs and even I DO NOT have enough hours in the day! I often think about if I were working now, how would I ever find the time to do anything -like blog reading, posting, indulging in hobbies, etc. I used to be able to multi-task like crazy but not so anymore. So take whatever time you need buddy because you do have to prioritize and take care of the necessary things first!

  1. Yup, Trav...there are over 400 posts in my reader. Slowly but surely I'm STILL catching up from having a baby 7 weeks ago! *sigh*

    That durn NANO is gonna kill ya dude!

    You know your seat on The Couch is one messes with a wolf!

  1. Don't feel bad...I'll probably soon be vanishing from the blogosphere myself. The holiday hustle is nearly upon me...There's art work to be done!

  1. Julie says:

    See....we ALL understand. It's not like any of us are sitting around twiddling our thumbs ya know!

    I'll look forward to the Dance entries if you would stop those...well.....let's just say it wouldn't be a pretty sight!

    Right Vinny?

  1. jennifer says:

    This is a running theme it seems in Blogland. Lots of folks cutting back on posting or visiting. I have been absent from visiting blogs lately too and my posts are sort of blah.

    Hope that the studying goes well.

    Have a great weekend.

  1. Linda says:

    It's kind of hard to juggle everything, isn't it? You do what you have to do, Travis, and we will happily read whatever you post as it's all good!

  1. Bond says:

    Yup Yup YUP

    Julie is right...don't get Julie angry...

  1. TopChamp says:

    Look after yourself!

  1. Merely Me says:

    wow...all the bloggers I have visited so far have gone to new york. there seems to be a trend here.

  1. Meribah says:

    Cut back or organize better? Why choose? Do both! You'll have less stress that way. Hope it all works out for you! Hugs. :)

  1. the teach says:

    Travis I have a couple of awards for you for a very special reason... Come get them! :)

  1. Grandy says:

    Travis~ You need to relax...and BREATHE! No worries. We'll be around whenever you sneak in.

    Besides...I have an award for you over at my site. If it takes a bit for you to get there, it was posted on 10/24/08. ;)

  1. Travis says:

    Turn: It's probably not realistic for me to try it. But I want to at least begin and see if I can force myself to reorganize.

    Charles: I know the Dancing stuff can get a little boring for people who don't watch the show.

    Lois: I'm working on it!

    Sandee: That's the plan.

    Songbird: Busy is one thing, but not being in control of the busy is unsettling.

    Akelamalu: Right!

    Jeni: It's quite scary how a day can get away from us, isn't it?

    CWM: It's nuts!

    V: It really could...but I'm telling myself not to stress over it. If I can't handle it, I'll stop.

    Lana: I need to prioritize and make sure I'm keeping up with the critical stuff.

  1. Travis says:

    Julie: Dance reviews must continue! That's a huge priority and something I enjoy.

    Jennifer: It seems like it might be that time of year.

    Linda: It's very tough.

    V: I wouldn't dream of it!

    TC: Yes Ma'am!

    Merely Me: I wish I could have gone on vacation instead of only business.

    Meri: You're such a smart pup!

    Teach: Thank you dear!

    Grandy: Breathe! That's right! I'm always telling everyone to breathe and I should take that advice myself. And thanks for the award!

  1. Mags says:

    Hi Trav! Hope you're doing well. :)

  1. Enjoy. And yeah, that NaNo thing is a booger. I was going to give it a go this year, but somewhere my time got hogtied and branded. OUCH! Lol

  1. Jeff B says:

    I'm doing some re-prioritizing as well. It's been a week since posting last.

    Your certificate program is far more important than keeping up with the blog world, so i completely understand the need to hold back.

  1. Jamie says:

    Have you investigated cloning?

  1. Just stopped by, Travis to wish you good luck in the studying and everything! :)

  1. Kimmie says:

    Hey Travis,
    You just concentrate on your studies. I too have been very out of pocket with my blog for many reasons. I may have to step back for awhile myself. I had planned to get back to it tomorrow, but I am not ready, physically or emotionally. I will stop by for DWTS though. I surely have missed your recaps.
    Take Care My Dear Friend. :-)

    Hi Travis. I came by to see your Manic Monday Ghost post... and am disappointed to see it's not here, though the link from MM said it was... {pouting}

    Have an awesome day!!!

  1. there is no way I can NaNo this year...

    I always enjoy your posts...but completely understand having other things going on in life.
