And so, goodnight.

Periodically I'll have a thought to share, or a story, and something will stop me. Sometimes that "something" is a crying baby or rampaging preschooler, but more frequently it's that it doesn't quite seem right for this blog. My life doesn't seem right for this blog anymore.

I'd like to be blogging about (in no particular order): craft projects, parenting challenges, what to make for dinner, the in-laws, things my kids say and do, home ownership, gardening, and my determination to own a Bakfiets.

There's nothing else I can do, except begin a new blog for all of those things. This blog will still be here, in case anyone ever wants to read my bitter ramblings through infertility, and I'll begin posting again when we decide to try for a third kid. But for now, I need to start anew.

As soon as I figure out where I'm going, I'll let you know.

And so, goodnight...

This blog was good. This blog was fun.
Next week will bring another one.
Every day, from here to there,
Funny thoughts are everywhere.

(with apologies to Dr. Seuss)

I had to google bakfiets - I think those things are amazing but didn't know their name!

Your blog is about YOU and your life so don't feel confined by what you think others expect/think. Of course, if you want to start a different one - go for it!!

What Heather said. Not that I can talk since I haven't updated for about a month.

Thanks for the update! It's good to hear that all is well. I agree; don't remove the blog but by all means, move on to something or somewhere else. Let us know where to find you though, if you are so inclined. I'd like to keep reading.

Much love to you and your family. As always. :)

Oh, I just find your blog and now you're moving on! Shame as I enjoyed reading. Take care and I wish you well. Any tips to get my blog going would be appreciated ;-)

I will still keep you on Google Reader and hope you let me know where you are going....think about you all the time.

I remember my husband didn’t want children at first, but then I was able to change his mind. After 5 months I was still not getting pregnant. Luckily I found Lisa's guide, I followed her easy steps and after a couple of weeks I got pregnant, naturally.

Today our baby is 10 months old and I must thank Lisa for that, she is very supportive, I talked to her a couple of times and she always had kind words who helped me go through those bad moments.

Today we have a baby, he is 10 months old and I must thank Lisa for that

Just found this now - I hadn't checked in for a while and your blog doesn't come up automatically in my reader, for some dumb reason. (I added it, so dumbly trusted that it would and didn't check in!)

Anyway, all that is well and good, but get ON it! If you have time to send an email, you have time to write a blog!!! (maybe not time to take pictures of crafty things and such, but take the time, because it'll be great!)
