Till We Meet Again



My life has taken some twists lately. Taking me to places I didn't really want to go. I can sit around and lament the things I feel I have lost, which I have done. Or, I can embrace the changes and look ahead with wonder at where life will take me. I've done the former and am moving on to the latter.

Musicman is the love of my life, always has been, always will be. He has always been supportive of me and anything, within reason, I wanted to do. I know he will continue to be that for me, my everything.

We, Musicman and I, though dealing with a lot of personal challenges are stronger then ever as a couple. I no longer have the time to be an active participant in this community, nor do I feel like I have much left to contribute. We are comfortable with our dynamic and I am certain it will continue to grow at our own unique pace. It no longer needs the focus this blog provides.

I am embarking on a new journey that is going to mean a huge time commitment for me. It has the potential to be something very good for us as a couple. For me, that far outweighs what I want for me. It is something that I must give my full attention. If I fail, it won't be because I didn't try my very best.

I don't believe in saying goodbye, so, I have decided not to take this blog down. Ya never know when I might decide to pop back in an be heard. I've grown so much through my writing here, untangled so many knots. I've made great friends and felt a part of a wonderful community. I hate to give that up, but I can no longer make the time commitment it requires from me. When the dust settles, that may change, but I can't promise that right now.

I wish you all the very best that life has to offer. Your  love, laughter, support and friendship have meant more to me then I have the words to express. I'll be around, lurking some, maybe commenting some, but that's all I have to offer right now.  Though, I fully intend to keep in touch via email with all the good friends I've made. My email is posted on the blog for anyone who wishes to reach me.


Till we meet again, be well, my friends.

    1. Ahh, my friend, no need to say anything. Life happens and all we can do is accept and learn to deal with it. Maybe it won't be as hard to do that as I am anticipating :)

  12. I can only second all the comments that have already been made by so many of your friends in the blogging world. You will certainly be missed. But we will all wish you and Musicman the best in the future. You were certainly lucky to find each other. And since you are leaving the blog up, I do hope you will pop in every once in a while for a quick hello to let us know you are well.

  20. I like that you have something to work for - even if it does take lots of time. I'm most grateful you aren't taking the blog down. Give the new endeavor everything you can but if a post burst into your head and won't leave you alone - write it! Work, spanking, family, illness our blogs can be about anything or nothing. Just stick your head in when you can and we'll be here.

    Best of luck with everything.
