For some time, I've been waffling back and forth about what I want to do about this blog. My poor husband and mom probably think I'm borderline schizophrenic: "I'm going to close the blog/I'm not going to close the blog/I'm going to close the blog/I'm not . . ." Well, you get the point. In the end, I've decided that I am. There are a number of reasons I've decided it would be better for me to exit the family blogging world, but I won't go into all of them.
The main reason is that I have been having a quarter-life crisis of sorts and I feel the need to shed myself of non-essentials, particularly anything that keeps me from more important responsibilities and anything that causes me unnecessary stress of which this blog is sometimes both. I'll still follow my friends on your blogs; these relationships are important to me. And I may someday become a blogger again, but for now-- while I "find myself"--I'm shutting us down here. Thanks for following us here during the last four years.
