Walking Away

I've been writing this blog for two and a half years. That's more time than I have devoted to most things in my life. However, there comes a time when things must end. Sadly, I've found it harder and harder to keep the ideas coming and lately when I sit down at the keyboard, the ideas don't flow like they should. Writing is becoming more work than fun these days, and that's never what this whole blogging thing was supposed to be about. On top of it all, my real life is getting busier, the kids are getting older and need more of my time and attention. I'm in difficult position discovering that there isn't enough time to do all of the things that I want to do.

So with all of this weighing me down, I've decided to call it quits and walk away from this blog. This is a really hard decision, but I hope you will understand and respect it.

I sincerely thank all of you for reading my words over the years. It means more to me than you will possibly know.

Completely understand. Must have been tough/freeing to hit 'publish' on this one.

I'm going to miss this.

Aw! If this isn't an April Fools joke, I will really miss this blog. I enjoy reading your posts and hearing about your daily goings on. Always makes me smile.

I'm hoping, like the others, that this is April Fools. If it's not then I wish you the best. I've enjoyed reading here. I'd recommend not deleting the blog...just leave it. That way if you ever want to come back you can. And my reader will pop up and say you've posted.

Best of luck!

Nothing like an April Fool's joke to bring out the lurkers.

In other news, DGB has also decided to give up bacon and one-off, special edition candy bars.

Ditto what everyone else said - better be an April Fool. You don't want a revolt on your hands.

You know you have to post 'at least' one more time just to clear this foolish thing up.
