I have been waffling about this for a bit, but this week was really decision time, so:

I will not be doing Blogathon this year.

The huge stressors elsewhere in my life have sucked up all time and energy (ending soon, I swear!). Doing the Blogathon requires a lot of time and energy - in fact, I'm already way behind in terms of auction planning.

So my decision comes down to
a) add a major stressor for the rest of June, the entirety of July, and the beginning of August (recovery time!), or
b) do not add a major stressor and give myself some time to rest.

I think the healthy decision is clear. Surprisingly, I am actually making the healthy decision! Go me.

Since Blogathon as an Official Thing appears to be dead, I figure I can do it anytime I want. You may see a surprise Blogathon this winter, even. But for right now, is too much. When even the thought of answering e-mails regarding a thing sends one into stress spirals, and one does not actually need to do said thing, one ought to evaluate whether taking the year off would be best.
