I think I'm done here. It's time for me to move on. I'm closing down this blog.

Like I said earlier today, I'm bored with myself, so bored that my posts contain nothing interesting, and frankly I'm amazed any of you are still here reading. I've been feeling this way for a while, and was planning on closing my blog down in about a year anyway.

Today I was put in a situation in which I had to choose what is most important to me, and this blog just isn't it any more. To be completely honest, I've lost interest lately and the only reason I've been reading some blogs is so that they will comment here. I don't know why I've placed importance on getting comments, and I think I've been continuing on here for the wrong reasons.

I will still be around reading and commenting on many of your sites, because I love reading what you all have to write. But this part is just no fun for me any more and just feels like an obligation rather than something I really want to do.

Feel free to email me if you'd like - my address is[at] If you have gmail and ever want to chat, that would be great too. There are many of you I'd love to stay in touch with. We just need new methods now.

Thanks for everything.

Signing off-

Oh, no!!! I am sad to see you go, but I understand. I'd hate for you to keep doing something you're not enjoying. I was just telling Tim last night that I thought if we ever hung out with you and Aaron we'd all have a blast because we seem to have a lot in common. Tim thought it was funny that you keep your china in a storage closet just like us.

I hope you'll stay in touch. Take care!

oh, that´s too bad, but I do understand the frustration of not getting comments and the feeling of obligation that sometimes comes along with blogging. Best of luck to you... who knows, maybe you´ll come back soon :)

I am really sad to see you go. I'm a regular reader and I only commented when you asked about delurking : ) Oh and them the magazine subscription. Maybe you can keep the site up and post every once in a while? Good luck to you, you are a great person and I hope life treats you well. -Anne

Wow...well, you gotta do what's best for you.

But you will be missed.

I hope to "see" you around!

The lure of the real world is strong indeed :^) I hope that if you change your mind you will come back, as you are an enjoyable read. But I can't say, "nooooo!" as I see my Bluehost expires in 20-something days and I still waffle on renewing myself. Take care and I hope to see you around.

I hate to see you not have a blog. I'll miss it. However I think all bloggers have been where you are right now. As women we have to decide where our time is well spent, we have a list of things to do every day. Your smart to put Blogging on hold when you see it might be taking away from more important things.

Please stop by and see me every now and again. And please please put your food pictures up on flickr. I'll miss your recipes.

With this extra time will have since not blogging... you can walk around the house Naked and see what Aaron has to say about THAT! Spend your time wisely I say. =)

I'll miss reading your blog! It's always good to hear what's going on back in Michigan. Best of luck to you in your new adventures!

I see you posted this Thursday. Obviously if you read my blog, you know why it's Monday before I saw this.

Please stay in touch with me. I have NEVER found you boring and will miss reading about your life.

Like others have said, I totally understand how you feel, but I'll be sad to see you go! I know what you mean about comments sometimes...I've been tempted to close all of my comments so that people don't feel obligated to write something.

I hope you'll post updates from time to time. But I certainly understand your decision. We all have to keep our priorities straight, and there isn't time for everything. You'll be missed!
