See you soon

I’m sorry to say that for now, we’re taking a break. I don’t know when we’ll be back but hopefully it will be soon. I want to thank all of you who came here everyday for conversation and friendship. I will really miss this. More than you know. You made this blog worthwhile for me and I’ve really enjoyed meeting all you new friends. I hope to come back. Maybe we just need to regroup. I’ve thought about this a lot and it’s sad for me but hopefully we’ll be back really soon.

  1. Oh, I’m sad. Enjoy your break, and please do come back.

    Hey we’ve had some good times!

    I’m actually kinda happy and excited for all of you. Enjoy your life and when you have time and feel like it start again.

    Hey at least I can keep track of you the other way! 🙂

      We have had good times Michael and it’s been my pleasure to meet you and we will still haunt each other “over there.” But I’ll miss this place like crazy. I won’t be “over there” much either. I don’t enjoy that as much.

    Hey, Joy, what is this? I am a bit shocked and sad. You made me also feel so at home in this country. But, know I respect your choice and can understand it. Please enjoy your life and take good care of yourself. Hope to see you back soon!!

    I think, at the moment, we’re feeling a little overwhelmed. I know that, for me, I have a ton of things going on right now, and when i sit down to write something for here, my mind locks up and the words don’t come. It’s tremendously frustrating. And it places a TON of pressure on Joy, because then she has to fill in where I was supposed to be, which isn’t fair to her.

    I am hoping that, come fall, things will settle back down, schedules will pick up and make sense again, and we’ll have regrouped and can come back here and have fun with each other again.

    Meanwhile, take care of one another, and yourselves.

      I did the same thing last summer. It’s just a question of priorities. In the end I decided that (for me) I had to spend more face time with my family. Once school started up and things calmed down a bit I did more writing/blogging. Maybe I’ll do the same this school year.

      Enjoy life Girls, it’s the only one you get here. 🙂

    PS… I love that picture. That dog is looking off in the distance, like he’s waiting for his partner to return. Such a face!

  6. Ellen says:

    I love the picture too, look at his mouth, a bit of : Are you coming now…..
    You too all the best for now Laura and you take care of yourself and one another too!

  7. DM says:

    I know the feeling. I have 5 or 6 half finished posts just sitting there…writer’s block or too busy maybe..stay in touch.

    ‘Other Joy’

    I understand where you are coming from, but I will miss your blog. Thanks for welcoming me to your site. I hope life treats you kindly and all your souls are filled with peace! Enjoy the break, but I do hope to see you again someday.

    Enjoy your break!Sure will miss you though,not sure what I’ll do now during my morning coffee:)

    You know where to find me, I am just an e-mail away if you ever want to chat. Sorry I couldn’t help out. 😦 Hopefully you will be back soon and fresher than ever!

  11. Jason says:

    This makes me sad. I like to read all the topics you come up with. I know I don’t always have a response for the topics. Let me just say that I am going to miss you. Sometimes when I sit out on my back deck it’s like I can hear you voice coming to me in the distance. 🙂 Well I hope you ahve a good break and may our paths cross soon enough.

    Everybody needs a break sometimes. I know I did. I love blogging and reading blogs and I know I will do it again, hopefully, sooner rather than later. It saved me after I retired but it seems I am working again. Little Lilah keeps me very busy. You have that wonderful summer cottage to keep you busy and your wonderful family. I feel like there is so much I want to do and so little time to do it. I need to cut down on Facebook too. I want to start reading more like I used to before I got computer crazy.
    My son is 3 months clean and sober so I want to spend time with him. He is so much fun when he is sober. I hope you and your family have an awesome summer. I will be on Facebook so maybe I will see you there on occasion. Like Just a Mom said, e-mail me if you need me. You are an awesome friend.

    I’ll miss you all.. but I totally understand. I’ve been completely overwhelmed with things too and have felt guilty for not having time to be so actively involved on your blog as I used to be! I hope you all relax, and enjoy your time… and hopefully you will all be back soon with many more ideas and will be excited again about writing instead of feeling like it is a chore!!

    Now is a great time for a vacation! Please enjoy it! I will miss this blog, but I believe that after some R&R, it will be back up and as enjoyable / thought-provoking / sociable as ever. Looking forward to that day!

  15. Oh dear! I hope that this is really just a vacation, some time off for you… You know, Joy, that your blog was one of the first that I added to my “Blog Surfer” and that for over a year and a half now I’ve still been around here. I love your blogs and the family project that you have here.

    I hope everyone’s okay, and I’ll miss you. *Hugs*

  16. Joy says:

    Thank a MILLION times to those of you who have commented. You don’t know how much it means to me. I love this blog and will probably be back next week. Laura and I are two busy bee’s and are trying to regroup and go forward just the two of us. We really appreciate the support.

    I also wanted to say that if any of you have a topic you’d like to see discussed, a recipe you’d like so share or a question you’d like to ask or if you even want to write something yourself and put it here, please let us know. I like to think this blog belongs to all of us.

    Thanks again you guys.

    Well, I’m getting here a little late, but I’m here none the less! This threw me off when I saw it the other day, but vacations are always good. I know I haven’t been around much, but I still try and check each day. I think I need to get back into writing posts, but I got to a point that I felt like people didn’t want to hear what I had to say so I just quit. I also never got around to redoing my “Sue’s Stuff” page. For all I know you don’t want me anymore anyway! That’s fine, just let me know. I like the questions of the day and the braingles so I hope you’re not gone too long.

    Blogging breaks are important in my book. I’m all for rest and relaxation. Enjoy and rest and regroup. I’m so glad your only taking a short break. I don’t need to panic or freak out that’s good because I was starting to go into withdrawals and worry. I am actually amazed that you have been going so strong for so long. Come on by when your back up and running. And Sue write write and write. :+) Glad your going to be back Joy. Sigh of relief. Take a restful time out. You certainly deserve it! :+)
