Time to Say Goodbye

Hey there everyone, it's your old pal Diary here to admit defeat.  Over the past few months I haven't posted much, read many blogs or tweeted worth a shit.  Things are just too crazy.  So I feel that it's best to fold up camp for this particular little blog concern and think about what might be ahead in the future.

It's not that I don't love to blog, love the community and of course, love to have an outlet through which I can call people out on their ridiculous shit. I certainly do love every minute of that.  However, my life is very full at the moment with a mix of things really good and not so good and this mix of stuff is keeping me occupied.  There is no cause for alarm or concern.  Let's just say that busy does not even begin to describe it.

Before I go, I would like to say a word of love to some of the bloggers that I have discovered on this journey that made a positive impression on me and kept me around for as long as I was.  There are too many to mention individually, but these were among my regular reads.  If you haven't checked them out, you must.  I am too lazy/tired to link to them, but a google search works just as well:


Lin at Duck and Wheel with String
Allison at 400 Wake Ups
The Empress at Good Day Regular People
Wendi Aarons
Smacksy
Surfer Wife
Amy at Goodbyte 20's Hello Botox
Mom of the Perpetually Grounded
Sara Spelled Without an H

That is just a small portion of the list of people that I have enjoyed reading and if your name isn't on the list, know this; if I ever visited  your site and left a comment, I have enjoyed your blog and I appreciate your writing.

So what's next for me?  Other than donning a ninja outfit and running night maneuvers on the PTA,  I am not really sure.  Things have really picked up for my son's band and driving them to shows and going to work will continue to take up a lot of my time.  I really do enjoy being pseudo-roadie, I'm thinking about growing a beard and getting a tattoo of a flaming skull on my forearm, to really embrace the look.

In my heart, I don't believe that this is the end of blogging for me, rather it is more of a new beginning.  There are many possible future concepts out there for me, I just have to get through the craziness of the next couple of months before I reinvent myself.  Perhaps I will lose my mask and come out from behind the shadows of anonymous blogging or maybe I will stay anonymous and tell stories about the unbelievable people that I encounter in corporate America (I swear that one guy is skinning people and wearing their pelts at night).  Whatever it may be, I will be sure to reach out to all of you that have had such a positive impact on me to let you know that I am back.

Hugs, Kisses and Hatred for the PTA.
