Hiatus


When I started Blogging 2 years ago I was at a slow point in my life. Blogging was great! It allowed me to work on my free writing skills and to express myself on topics I would never have before. Additionally, in reading others blogs, I came to change my views on many things. All in all, it has been a wonderful experience for me.

The slow point is passing and I have not been doing my blog justice for several months now. Even though the OH and I are officially "Empty Nesters II" now (we wrote the final tuition check last week!!!). My work has accelerated, we took on some volunteer work and our social life has become a bit more involved. Add on the training I am doing for a half marathon and with cycling season just around the corner, you can see where this is going. Something will give and Blogging is one of them.

I still expect to continue following my favorite blogs. I would also like to thank all those who took the time to leave such meaningful comments on my posts.

Vaya con Dios mi Amigos.

You are going to be missed Mal! At least let us know how the 1/2 marathon goes.

Have fun in the real world! Enjoy your new Empty Nest!

You will be sorely missed Mal. Thanks for letting us know instead of the usual wondering why she doesn't write anymore.

Best pic yet! I hope you have a lot of fun at whatever your doing, but come back and tell us about it. Make sure the blog doesn't get deleted. There are lots of things worth going back to.

Bike on! And don't be a stranger.

I saw a little girl in McDonalds over the weekend, and she was so precious. She had light brunette hair, strands were coming out of her loosely-tied ponytail, and her laugh and smile were infectious. She ran up to a slightly older boy and said, "Come play with me." It was so cute and she eventually got the boy to play with her.

Well, I want to have a little contest called "Battle of the Bloggers." I wrote about it last week, and my readers were less-than-enthusiastic about the contest. I cannot be entered myself, but I want to host a competiton that, more than anything, will expose me and others to good blogs that we don't know about to date. Please visit my blog at http://dsmoya31410.blogspot.com to see the details. So if you want to nominate a blog for this competition, please do so. I don't really care who wins; I just want to know about quality blogs. Sorry if this looks like spam. I am just trying to spread the word.

Oh Mal! I’ll miss your posts!!! Nice that good things are taking too much time for you though :- ) I don’t write that often myself, but I so APPRECIATE all your comments on my blog. When I heard your life story I felt that someone should write a book about women who are successful in all areas and still have the ability to reflect, enjoy and teach. You are one of those women!

Thank you and enjoy the real world!!!

Bossy said...

Don't be a stranger. If you're ever inspired to jot a bit here or there, please do. Blogs don't have to end as cleanly as they begin.

Saur♥Kraut said...

Chrissie said...
