The time has come, the time is now...
So, Viola stumbled across my blog finally. The kids have now become internet savvy enough to search and find My Name Is Mommy so looks like I'll be taking down my shingle, so to speak. I haven't been regularly and faithfully blogging for quite a while now. Between Facebook and digital photo books and all the other media out there, I've been recording the ebb and tide of life in many places.
While much of this blog is drivel about my daily life and really not all that interesting, I did blog through some very difficult changes in my life. I hope someday that my girls can read it all and find out all the wonderful, sweet, silly and amazing things I witnessed during the years of their childhood. I hope they will also some day read things about me and understand me better as a person and at least have something to take to their respective psychiatrists to explain why they need therapy. :) They are still too young, however, to appreciate or understand much of the content and so...
Sorry to say, the Duggar Debate will have to continue elsewhere- though I appreciate the fact that lively comments continue to come in, even 7 years after my original post.
I will continue to blog but must do it behind closed doors. My dear blog friends out there(you know who you are!)- please e-mail me for access if you'd like to continue to get the sporadic updates here. I will leave this here for a few days and will then be turning the lock for good.
So many times I have considered doing this and now, it just feels right. I'm very busy with reading and writing. I am, apparently, having a book published soon- and in the meantime am doing proofreading and editing work for publishers and authors so that others, too, may throw in their story to the lot.
It is with much love and happiness that I look back on all that has been recorded here- it has been more than ten years now since I first started blogging during my pregnancy with Avery. This has always been a place where I could express my joys, grief, angst and reflect with humor on the ups and downs of family life. It will, of course, be a bit different- making it private... but I don't know that I ever really strayed too far from my purpose and I think this among other venues will continue to serve toward that purpose. I will, of course, continue to look forward to reading my friends' updates. :)
Marvin K. Mooney will you please go now!!
