Just checking in.
For lots of reasons, and several more excuses, I'm going to stop blogging indefinitely. It's been on my mind for a few months, and I might just be ready for something new or different.
In the last two months my readability stats have gone down, way down. I don't know why, and that's not really the reason I blog, but still, if I keep in contact with the same people who read my blog anyway, then I don't see the point in reiterating the stories of our lives.
Another factor is simple logistics. I'm busy, truly busier than I've ever been. From morning until after lunch my life is consumed in trying to juggle teaching my oldest child a lot, teaching my middle child a little, and making sure that if the toddler is going to run around with scissors, that at least they're the kind with a blunt edge.
There's a lot going on, and frankly, it's just getting too hard. When time is precious and there's no rest for the weary, something needs to get cut, and this six year old blog is on the chopping block.
There are so many stories I want to write out, and even more opinions I want to express, but it's almost at a point where I've been personal, but I've gone far enough. Maybe someday, when I grow enough backbone to write about the things that I truly want to write about without reserve, then I'll go about it differently, with a little more courage and little less bloggity blog.
Carpe Diem, baby.
