Clearly based on my last post, I was going a little nutty in life, especially when it comes to money.  I guess that is what $40,000 does to my mental budging.  That the total cost of my husband's MBA, I know its not the most expensive program out there, but still not cheap.
Well on Wednesday after I wrote that post the kids and I went out with some friends and we lost Nan's shoe, I was so furious, fuming for a long time.  But then with a few phone calls I tracked it down.  Once we found it I realized woah, I have gone psycho with my mental perception of money. I did a little writing therapy that night and realized where I've gone wrong and what I need to do to fix my thoughts.  
The long and short of all of this, is I think a need a blog sabbatical. I need an internet cleanse.  Although I find it oddly liberating to hang my dirty laundry out for all the world I need some personal journal writing therapy not post for the whole world wide web therapy. Maybe when I come back I'll have switched blogs.  I think I need to re-invent my blog. I don't want therapy blog, I also don't like have political posts anymore, even though I loved those when I started.  Maybe its time to go truly to a mommy blog/family blog.  I won't go away forever.  Just a week or a month or long or something shorter. Maybe I'll blame it on Shannon for her Jess post, but that wouldn't be fair. I've been thinking about it for a while that I need to get back to personal pen on paper for my personal posts. Until next time.


  1. Noooooo! Not my Jess post! LOL. Are you saying it was too personal and made you think you shouldn't be personal or because I talk about journal writing? I like your personal posts, but I understand the hesitation. Mine has become a lot less therapy-like, but that's because I'm more aware who reads it and it has made me self-conscious. I wish I could still be more candid on there, but I can't. I don't necessarily want my ward members and in-laws reading it all.

  2. I don't know how to post comments on your blog. This darn thing doesn't let me...oh, never mind it worked this time.

    Just as you decide to quit blogging is when I decide to come back to blogging. Life is interesting.

  3. Who will I laugh at if you don't post anymore? :) Life is so serious lately. I really need to start writing in my journal again too.
