This is my Last Post for a while June 18, 2006

Posted by table4five in Family, personal thoughts.

In the words of George Constanza, it's not you, it's me. Blogging has become a demanding little bitch of a mistress. Thinking of posts to write, writing them, reading and responding to comments (not that I'm complaining about that!), going through my blogroll and reading and leaving comments, is becoming too time-consuming and is taking me away from other things that I should be doing.

Like laundry. Housework. Opening, sorting and paying bills. Reading actual books. Reading with the boys for the library's Summer Reading Program. Working with Nathan on his math skills.

I never did write the post about how Nathan was diagnosed with a Math Learning Disability that he might have for the rest of his life, and how in order to keep him on track, I agreed to spend the summer doing flashcards and working with Unifix cubes and playing sequencing and Memory games. There, I guess I just wrote it.

Before I go, there are three things I want to mention, each of which deserves it's own post, but for the sake of brevity I will condense them into one.

First, Father's Day. To say that my husband is a good father is a huge understatement. He has gone from a young man who didn't even think he wanted to have children to the father of three amazing kids. He doesn't just parent them, he guides them by example. Because of him, they are emotionally and physically safe and secure young people who are kind, generous and thoughtful, caring and concerned, funny and loving. There is no doubt in my mind that the boys will grow up to be good men who are good husbands and fathers, and that the baby will grow up to be a good woman who is a good wife and mother. We are all better people because of him.

Today is also the day that Kaitlyn is seven months old. I wish each of you could spend time with her so you could see just how happy and bright and funny she is. Last night, we took her out for dinner, and she sat happily in the highchair banging a spoon on the table, then in my lap and Chris', taking bites of our food and smiling at everybody. When I took her in the restroom to change her diaper, she lay back on the changing table, looked up at me, and said "Ma ma ma". On the way home, Nathan made faces at her and she laughed big squealing belly laughs that kept us all in stitches for a good ten minutes. She brings us so much joy and overflows our hearts with love. Happy birthday, muffin!

Finally, tomorrow is our 13th wedding anniversary. Where has the time gone? In those thirteen years we have owned two houses, had three children, four cars, and five jobs. We are still each other's best friend. It doesn't surprise me at all that we are still together after 21 years. I can't imagine what my life might have been like otherwise. No matter how hard my day has been, I can crawl in to bed at night and spoon up against his warm back and feel all the tension drain away. He is my rock.

I've no doubt that I'll still be checking in with all of your blogs, because when I don't I always feel like I'm missing something. Feel free to email me since I do check that every day. And in a week or two, I should be caught up around the house and ready to get back to blogging. I'm still not sure about this whole WordPress thing; not being able to access the template is causing me way more distress than it should. I may have to suck it up and go back to Blogger, I'm not sure. Feel free to chime in with your opinion on that as well.

See you around the blogosphere, everybody. Sounds like the dryer stopped.

Oh my goodness, everybody, I didn't mean to make it sound like I was in such dire straits! I'm really just taking like a week or two off to get my housework caught up and take the kids to the park and stuff. I just didn't want to blog the summer away, you know? I don't want it to be September and have the kids say we didn't DO anything this summer. So that's all it is. Trust me, I have potential blog posts circling around in my head ALL THE TIME, and I know if I don't eventually write them down, my head will explode! Thanks for all the supportive comments and emails, my friends. See you SOON!

Oh, Elizabeth-

I will miss reading your blog, but I totally understand your reasons (as my husband was, until a minute ago, sitting on the futon giving me this forlorn look as I surfed). Know that you can take as long a break as you like, and come back if and when you feel like it, and your friends (because that is what we are) will still be here.

2. mamatulip - June 18, 2006

Come back when you’re caught up…you’ll be missed.

3. Nancy - June 18, 2006

Well, you know I can relate. We will be here when you come back, and you know where to find us all in the meantime. And of course you’re not getting out of BlogHer!

And congrats on the big milestones in your family — you have a lot to celebrate with your family this week!

4. roo - June 19, 2006

Dammit, I just got back and now you’re going.

Well, I’ll forgive you, if you have a drink with me at Blogger.

Happy anniversary, Elizabeth! And good luck with all your other endeavors!

5. K. - June 19, 2006

I understand completely how blogging can begin to take over your life. I commend you for regaining control and I am sure that you will feel wonderful when you finally do come back.

Secondly, the story you told about Kaitlyn was just so special. It reminds me that children are always a joy. Something I need to be reminded of at this point in my life for different reasons.

Lastly, please don’t go back to Blogger. They are just too frustrating for those of us who like to leave comments on blogs in a relatively timely manner. Try to stick it out here and figure out how to get around.

6. Fraulein N - June 19, 2006

Congrats on all the changes in your life! Try to relax during your “break;” we’ll be here when you get back.

7. mrsfortune - June 19, 2006

OMG, big boohoo tears. Elizabeth!!! Come back in the fall, pretty please? What will I do without you!!! I’ll miss you sooo much. But REAL life is so important, of course.

Oh, and guess what, we have the same wedding anniversary! How cool is that? This is a popular time of year to get married, I guess. I’ll be you $1million my hubz forgets. 🙂

8. Mom101 - June 20, 2006

Well then, you g’wan and be your bad self at the park and around the laundry room for the next few weeks! When you’re back, we’ll be back. Enjoy…

“I understand,” Suebob said, sitting amidst a pile of unfolded laundry and unpaid bills.

10. Karen Rani - June 20, 2006

I was gonna say – you just told me you’d be wasting your time reading my blog, and I took that as a compliment, despite how it sounds…lol!

Glad you commented – I like your blog. I’m sure we could totally do lunch if you lived closer.

11. Mocha - June 20, 2006

You know we’ll be here just waiting. Pining away for you. Dreaming of our time with you. It will hurt me and wound me deeply. I might have to have a margarita to get over this. I’ll be drunk during your entire hiatus.

12. Jess - June 20, 2006

Blog breaks are the new black! Or whatever.

13. Izzy - June 20, 2006

I know exactly what you’re saying and I feel much the same. You may not have noticed but I have quit posting every day and have cut back on my blog reading. Our kids will only be little once!

I’ll be waiting patiently for your triumphant return. Good luck conquering the laundry 🙂

14. Mrs. Chicky - June 21, 2006

I’ve taken long weekends off from blogging but never several weeks. Good for you.

If you start to get the shakes from your blog withdrawal, we’ll still be here.

15. Jenny - June 21, 2006

Wow. I’m glad you added the postscript. I was starting to think we’d lost you forever! 🙂

16. Mary - June 21, 2006

Everybody needs a little time away… I heard her say….

Quick, name that band!

Hey, breaks are cool. We’ll be here when you get back. (And you’re still going to BlogHer, right? Definitely still do that!)

Also… if you feel like wordpress is bringing you down, just go back to your blogger blog. It is nice to be able to access your template. I haven’t worked with wordpress so I don’t know how it works, but it sounds like it’s not working for you. That sucks, but you haven’t spent too much time over here. I don’t think it’s a big deal to go back. My two cents!

Hope the math stuff is going along okay. Math was never my strong subject either. I really had to study and do stuff over and over. He’ll be fine with practice and study. That’s great you’re helping him. Perfect.

Okay, long post. bye!

17. wordgirl - June 22, 2006

Just make sure you write down those post ideas so that you’ll have them when you need them.

18. catherine - June 23, 2006

You’re such a good mommy, Elizabeth…and I’m glad to see that you’re checking in occasionally. It just wouldn’t be the same without ya!!

19. halloweenlover - June 23, 2006

Hope you catch up quick! We’ll miss you!
