All good things....

....must come to an end. And so must this blog. But not yet! :-) I am, however, going to phase this out before we go to China. I'm switching to a password protected website for the rest of our journey. I just feel like I want to keep some things private. If you're with AWAA, you will see the website with username and password in my signature line of my (infrequent!) posts to the email group there. If I personally know you or you've commented in my blog and really want my website info, I'd be happy to give it to you. You'll find my email in my profile. If you're just a lurker, well, I don't want to shut you out necessarily, but I have to draw the line somewhere. Maybe you don't care about my little life anyway. :-)

Another reason for phasing out this blog besides the privacy issue, is the time I spend on the computer. Once we get Allison home, I want to cut most of my computer time out and focus on my family and other things. I know many people are able to keep up their blogs, etc. once they get their child home, but I know myself and I know I haven't the discipline to stay off as much as I'd like to. I have a vision in my head of what I want my days to look like. I want to start them out with breakfast with my girls (and Ben is he's awake LOL) and not start it off on this computer. I want to get outside more, play with them more, and GET CONTROL OF THE CHAOS around here! :-) Will it happen as I envision it? I don't know but I hope so.

I leave you with a few pictures from last weekend when we went up to a friend's cottage. I love the brother/sister pics. Oh Lindsey can annoy Ben and vice versa, but there's also times when they make me go awww and warm my heart.

We made it to Day 30 of the wait for TA. That went pretty fast! We're really hoping to travel early November.

AMAZING RACE starts tonight! Woo hoo! Oh, and the Packers lost. Woo, big surprise, not.

I'll write again a time or two before I close this blog. It's been fun but as I said, it's time is done soon.

Beautiful pictures!

Sad to see you go but understand completely.

I'd love to follow along if you wish to share you new site.

I agree with you Eileen. I just can't see myself spending very much time on the computer once our baby is home either. I'm sure I'll have priorities other than blogging to do when it's nap time (like take a nap, myself!). I'm sure I'll take a peek now and then to read what's going on with some of my blog friends who were logged in after us, but I can barely keep up with everyone now!

Come on TA!!! :-)

Great pictures Eileen. I love the pics of Ben and Lindsey. You may not get too many more of them.
Talk to you soon I hope.

Those pictures are beautiful as always! I'd love to follow your new blog, I'm thinking I'll switch to a password protected blog after referral or as soon as we get home from traveling too.
If you don't mind sending me the link i'd love to follow!

I totally understand your desire for privacy! I hope you'll keep the Sept DTC group posted on your progress with TA and travel though! :-)

Hi Eileen,

I would love to keep following along. It would be like closing a good book before the final chapter to leave now. :o)

I can understand your need to go password protected and I hope that you'll allow me to follow along.

I hope you'll allow this fellow Sonlight mom to follow your journey.
