End of the Road

I never thought I'd say that this blog has served it's purpose and that it's closing down.

Never thought I'd say it's the end of the road.

Fact is...I'm too busy to keep up with it and because of other things I'm currently involved with, I don't have the time to write a blog or read others blogs.

I am so thankful for the friends I've met along the way. I've met many different people in the last 4 years. There were some that I thought would be life long friends who moved on to bigger, better (eye roll) things and forgot about me and others who have never left.

There were others, who I never foresaw connecting with in the way that I have that will, in fact, be life long friends. I'm exceedingly grateful for them.

I started blogging at a time that I was just coming out of the mire and muck of dirty diapers, spit up, isolation and, yes, I'll admit it, depression. The depression comes from being an active member in society and suddenly being thrust into the stay at home mom mold. Don't get me wrong, I wanted that more than anything and I'm so blessed to be able to have had it and still have it. But you do feel very isolated and alone at times.

I loved having a forum for my writing, which I love to do, still. I loved being a voyeur into others' lives and see what makes people tick.

I can say that I have friends all over this country now. I can't think of a state where I don't know someone through blogging. I even know people in other countries, which is fun.

So, if you're my friend on FB, you'll see me around. And perhaps I'll crop up in another space...ya never know.

I'll stop in as much as I can (or remember, since all of a sudden i have no memory skills) to see what's going on with you all.

But as for Living in France...well...it's time to say goodbye.

I love you all.

Oh no. This truly makes me so sad, MiMi. I have missed your writing for some time now. Knowing I'll never get it again is giving me heart palpitations!! But at the same time, I can completely understand. It is time consuming and uses an unusually large amount of brain power when you have to write, respond to everything, AND read other's blogs. I get it, but it doesn't mean I'm happy about it. I'll miss you, friend.

Hello, my friend. I think we started to blog about the same time. I haven't updated since February. My real life has taken priority over my online life, as it should. I want to be your FB friend, too. :) Hugs to you, Carisa

Now who will use the word amazeballs all the time? Lol.
I understand where you are coming from and I am glad you took the time to let everyone know instead of just disappearing.
Take care Mimi.

I never read logs and I happen to see this on my blog roll when I was looking for the porn (loooong story). Anyway, I love you and I'm glad we're fb friends. I suck as a blogger too but I keep thinking i will get my groove back. It's not here yet. =(

I'm so glad I've "met" you and lots of others through the blogging community. When I cuss at candy crush, I often think of you. xoxo

Oh my gosh I am so behind on reading blogs and finally seeing this now :( So so sorry, you will be missed! You were one of the first blogs I remember reading. I remember being amazed at how many people came and read your blog and all of your followers, hoping someday I could be like that too. Love you girl!!
