I wave at my life as it passes me by everyday.

My heart is not in this. It’s really that simple.

I began this blog as a way to express myself but it slowly turned into more--ways to get new readers, reviewing products, keeping the blog going because I had ads.....it turned into something I wasn’t. And it wasn’t very fun.

My life has been crazy these days. Between shopping for literally everything that was in home before the fire to redesigning our home from the studs to homeschooling to the numerous activities to marriage to well sleeping; blogging has not been in the schedule.

I have gone days without even opening my laptop--I twitter or facebook on the iPhone because it’s quick easy and not much to it. If only all comments were limited to 140 characters. ;)

Blog posts are different. I don’t want to offend. I need to be careful about what I say about my older kids because they have friends on the internet that read my blog (!). And it all takes time.

I know there are many of you who do have the time, the energy and wit to spit out those blog posts. That’s just not me. I can’t do it. At least right now.

I am not sure. I do want to help my husband with his real estate website. He is so busy running his business, he has little time to really care for it. And because he is also an appraiser, he has such a vast amount of knowledge in real estate--I could take his thoughts and share them with the world (and hopefully get a few clients out of it--hey don’t fault me, his commissions are literally our bread and butter!). The added bonus here would be more time with my husband--I love that guy!

My kids have been pushing me to do You Tube cooking videos. It might be fun in the newly designed kitchen. I don’t know. I’d like it because I could do the videos with the kids but I am not sure.

And then there’s that political side of me. To be honest, I am getting sick of the main media outlets painting me as some whacko terrorist because I disagree with our current president and congress. But that’s another story.

Or maybe I will just breathe.

So farewell for now. I wish everyone the best of the best and I love and appreciate you all!


(Don’t worry--I am not disappearing, I will be stopping by the blogs--even if only from my iPhone!)

I respect and honor your decision. And I'm glad I see you in person every week. :-) Now, go breathe, and live life.

Lisa, I get what you are saying. Every week I contemplate deleting my stat counter because I just don't need to care about that. It should just be about having fun with the friends I made through blogging.

No worries, Lisa.

I think about you and your family often! Well wishes.

Been there, done that. It's been a long time since I posted anything entertaining for my readers. I went back to my original reason for starting the blog...keeping friends and family up-to-date (and yes, I lost most of my blogosphere readers!). :)
I'm glad I'll still see you around facebook!! :)

oh Lisa, i'll miss your insight. Maybe you will start doing cooking videos, I'd love to watch. I understand you completely. I'm keeping your feed in my reader for that just in case moment! see you on FB & other places!!!

Texan Mama @ Who Put Me In Charge said...

Lisa, I totally understand. When or if the time is right, we'll see you again. I agree - blogging has to be right for the right time. You have so much on your plate, it would be a pity to see something else in your life suffer just because you had to BLOG!

So, for now, keep well and keep in touch. We'll see ya soon hopefully!!!

the youtube cooking video sounds like a great idea!!! i have always loved reading your cooking posts and also your posts on good healthy eating on a budget.... let us know if you do venture that way!

love you!

I'm strangely sad. I wasn't able to get here as much as I would have liked, but you were one of the first blogs I started reading and I have actually met at least one other blogger through your blog. But I so understand. You will be missed. You have a great site here.

I know what you mean. You will be missed. Good luck with the business and getting life back in order.

I thought you would like this blog that I have copied and pasted below. If, for some reason, it fails to work, email me at arizonaaussie@gmail.com and I'll get the lady who runs the blog to email me the exact link. Anyway, I thought you'd like it because it's a nice read. I went to school with the lady that made the blog, her name is Alisha, and having been a fan of the old yet classic "Dear Abby" sections in the newspaper back in the day....I am a big fan of this blogsite. If you like it, great, if not...well...don't send me hate mail!
