Kerrie’s Life: Taking a Break

The last six (or 12 or 18…) have been tough. I’m physically and mentally exhausted from being sick, my dad being sick, and life’s general requirements. I’m taking a break. A two-month break to be exact. Hart has a sabbatical from work and we’ll be on vacation from now until mid-July. We both desperately need to get away and relax.

I couldn’t leave The Daily Headache in a lurch, of course. I’ve written and scheduled a lot of posts for the next couple months. Megan Oltman of Free My Brain From Migraine Pain and Marijke Durning from Help My Hurt have graciously volunteered to manage the blog while I’m away. Forum members Deborah and MJ will make sure everything runs smoothly there.

What’s that? You want to know where I’m going? A week in the South Pacific to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary is the first destination. On the way home, we’ll stop in Phoenix to visit family. We’ll spend June in Alaska. Our best friends will be here the first 10 days of July, then Hart’s sister and brother-in-law are coming for a week. It will be busy, but we’re good at doing nothing on vacation!
