Signing off

Well, all good things must come to an end.

I casually logged on the other day and realized I hadn't made an entry since July!  Not really surprised.  The older and busier the little guy gets, and the less time I have.  And let's face it - if I do have "spare" time, I want to spend it with him!  Or my husband (sorry about the 2nd place thing know I love ya).

Not to mention the fact that all my creative juices are being used up building mega-blocks cities and play-doh monsters, or trying to think of ways to sneak vegetables in at supper time.  Not very domestic-goddess-like you say?  Bah!  Tis what it is.  I wouldn't change it for the world.

I started this blog at a time in my life that was filled with change, new experiences, joy, fear, awe, discovery....transformation.  It served as a sounding board when I needed to vent, a place of clarity when I needed to collect my thoughts, and a memoriam - a place to store the day to day experiences that I'm sure my mommy-brain would otherwise forget.  These pages represent, for me, my journey from being a woman to a new mother.  Not that that journey is over, or ever ends.

In fact it's precisely my loving obsession with that journey that draws me away from this piece of my life.  A bitter-sweet ending...that's mostly sweet (so I guess that's semi-sweet?).  So to save myself the embarrassment of having my blog collect cyber-dust, I'm signing off and saying goodbye to JournalofanOrdinary.  For now.
