Time's Up.

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.

Oh, sad!!!! This truly breaks my heart, but I understand that you have great responsibilities to tend to. Enjoy those boys and have peace in your heart. We'll be okay, but we'll miss you. :)

This is very sad! Your blog was the first blog I ever actively read. It totally inspired me as a mother and it made me feel like there was someone else out there going through the same new mom struggles. But I totally understand your reason for stopping. Thank you for your 6 years of honesty and inspiration!

Oh Mallory, you will be missed!! It's such a joy to keep in touch with you this way. You also provide such humble and inspiring encouragement to me as we walk very similar paths (I'm also homeschooling Bridge a lot, Linus a little, running after the young toddler, all while dealing with pregnancy and a long-working lawyer husband.) I will be leaving you on my Google Reader in hopes that you'll miss this space and pop your head in from time to time. :) Know that over these years you have been appreciated... and will be very missed.

God bless you and your boys!

Your blog was also the first one I subscribed to and it has been fun reading, but I understand how it is not the top of your "to-do" list anymore! Wishing you well and hope to see you around town occasionally.

Okay, I guess I keep up with you well enough during "nap-time, text-time", but you can never EVER take the blog down. I just don't think I can handle my life without the option of looking up "Grace Under Fire" and reading it when the going gets tough! ;-)
