Blog News and a Winner!

We have a winner!

But first let's talk about this blog. It's going the way of the world for awhile. I'm seeing my future (I'm cool like that) and blogging isn't in the cards. Mostly because internet is going to be sketchy between May and Oct as we move from the Bahamas to Macedonia. There are other reasons, but I won't go into those.

Now, I could come back after that, but I've tried that before and I had the hardest time roping people into reading this blog again. Why do you write posts? I write them to have conversations. I love your comments. I have thoroughly enjoyed the friendships formed through blogging. But you can't have a conversation with one person. (Well, you can, but it's just not that fun for me. :P) So in light of this, I've decided to put this blog on the back burner. No, not that back burner. The one CLEAR over there. Further back. Further.... A little further still. There you go!

Someday, when I have the time to get more involved in other people's blogs again, I'll pull this one back out of obscurity. But it won't be for awhile. Like when my kids are all in school and I have a solid 8 hours to myself. That's a few years off. (Unless Ethan decides to fast track like Xander did. I don't see that happening, but life is full of surprises.)

Anyway, if we're not already friends on facebook, please friend me. I'd love to hear your updates and keep in touch even if the blog is set on silent.

As for the winner of Christine's awesome book....

Alex, it's yours!!!

E-mail me at nisa79 at gmail dot com .

Love to you all!


  1. Wow, really? That's cool!
    Bummer you won't be blogging for a while. Don't delete it though!

  2. You'll be missed, Nisa, but I completely understand your decision! You've got a big move ahead...I pray it goes well and you adjust quickly.

  3. I'll miss you! I hope your move goes well.

  4. Totally understand but keep it here and post when you can.

  5. It's good to not run faster than you have strength, and good to know what your priorities are too. Good luck with the move. I hope i get to see you this summer!

    And congrats, Alex!

  6. I'm glad I'll still be seeing you around. Good luck with all the stuff coming your way.

  7. Sometimes we all need a break. We all understand.

  8. Wishing you the very best with your move, it's been nice visiting here ...

  9. Sorry you'll be going Nisa. I was just getting to know you too! Like Alex said...don't delete it! :)

  10. I'm sad to hear it but I understand it a lot. I'm glad you're still on FB, though, so we can keep in touch. (I'm much better at FB than blogs, to tell you the truth.)
    *wishing you much luck in all you do*

  11. I'm going to miss you here, but I'm sure we'll still keep in touch! Good luck on the move :)

  12. I'm going to miss you! I understand your reasons, though. Best of luck on the move-- that's HUGE!

  13. Good morning how are you?
    My name is Emilio, I am a Spanish boy and I live in a town near to Madrid. I am a very interested person in knowing things so different as the culture, the way of life of the inhabitants of our planet, the fauna, the flora, and the landscapes of all the countries of the world etc. in summary, I am a person that enjoys traveling, learning and respecting people's diversity from all over the world.
    I would love to travel and meet in person all the aspects above mentioned, but unfortunately as this is very expensive and my purchasing power is quite small, so I devised a way to travel with the imagination in every corner of our planet. A few years ago I started a collection of used stamps because trough them, you can see pictures about fauna, flora, monuments, landscapes etc. from all the countries. As every day is more and more difficult to get stamps, some years ago I started a new collection in order to get traditional letters addressed to me in which my goal was to get at least 1 letter from each country in the world. This modest goal is feasible to reach in the most part of countries, but unfortunately it’s impossible to achieve in other various territories for several reasons, either because they are countries at war, either because they are countries with extreme poverty or because for whatever reason the postal system is not functioning properly.
    For all this I would ask you one small favour:
    Would you be so kind as to send me a letter by traditional mail from Bahamas? I understand perfectly that you think that your blog is not the appropriate place to ask this, and even, is very probably that you ignore my letter, but I would call your attention to the difficulty involved in getting a letter from that country, and also I don’t know anyone neither where to write in Bahamas in order to increase my collection. a letter for me is like a little souvenir, like if I have had visited that territory with my imagination and at same time, the arrival of the letters from a country is a sign of peace and normality and an original way to promote a country in the world. My postal address is the following one:
    Emilio Fernandez Esteban
    Avenida Juan de la Cierva, 44
    28903 Getafe (Madrid)
    If you wish, you can visit my blog www.cartasenmibuzon.blogspot.com where you can see the pictures of all the letters that I have received from whole World.
    Finally I would like to thank the attention given to this letter, and whether you can help me or not, I send my best wishes for peace, health and happiness for you, your family and all your dear beings.

    Yours Sincerely

    Emilio Fernandez

  14. Wow. I am so sad to hear that your blog is fading away. :( Of course I rarely came here (life has way of doing that to us, eh?) but I liked knowing you were here. Oh well. I know where to find you. ;)

    So good for you for doing what's best for you. That's brave and awesome. Love you!
