I Admit It

I'm tired. I'm always busy. Once in a while my children need attention. And I don't know if my blather is worth writing down any more.

So I'll ask for a vote.


I enjoy reading your blog and would be sad for you to go away. I know that Life gets in the way, and you must do what's best for your family, but please stick around...and maybe add the baby to the four kids in the header? She's liable to get a complex if she sees it as is when she's older. :-)

I love hearing about my "nieces and nephews" this way... plus it always surprises your mom when I get to say "Oh, I know" when she updates me on how you are all doing!

Even Charles the parrot knows how to say "Time to take a nap."

It is hard to keep blogging when you lose the rhythm. Obviously, your family (and your sanity) come first. You know I am a big advocate of popping on for routine quick posts. Sometimes I have something to say that I didn't even know was lurking beyond the immediate diapers, dishes, and laundry pile.

Well, I tried to vote "take a nap," but could definitely relate to killing the blog. I am so happy you have this blog - you definitely helped me with the conversion thing and I appreciate your presence here. On the other hand, as I contemplate killing my own blog, I could hardly blame you.

It's hard. I am happy to have met the people I've met with it, I like being part of the community. But there's no question that it can take away from real life and that real life is way more important. Good luck!

I very much enjoy your blather, and much prefer a reduced output rather than a full stoppage. Maybe an early summer hiatus? Stop for a month, but keep a list of the things you *would* have said, and reevaluate at the end?

You can NOT quit. That is all.

Even just a little touch of Jordana makes your readers' day - please don't give it up!
