OK, I just have to say this hilarious thing.

My mom said tonight, "You can't stop blogging. You're doing a disservice to the hundreds of thousands of people who read you."


I said, "Um, try like 300 people."

My mom thinks I am way awesomer than I am.

I didn't mention this earlier b/c I'm certainly not one to infringe on one's hiatus, but I don't want you to quit blogging. I look forward to your updates and to that one day where I finally make it to your city to have lunch and all the fun stuff that comes with it.

You are awesome...the awesomest. Mom's aren't wrong about this stuff. (Hi, mom!)

I'm with Mom. But we will cut you a little slack for a week, or less ;D

Always listen to your Mom. There might be hundreds of thousands of us out here. I lurked for months before I finally left a comment. And if you have a counter that totals your daily hits as anything less than awesome, it's not working properly.

PS....enjoy your time off. Come back rested, refreshed, renewed and ready to continue the good fight.

Hi, Hope you are enjoying your week off & trip to TX. It is always helpful to take a break & get refreshed, I just came back from a trip to CO Springs. Please don't stop blogging I enjoy reading your blog and would miss your updates.

I'm one of those hundreds of thousands of lurkers (and fellow Army wife) who was sad to read that you are taking a break from blogging. To echo what everyone else has said, your mom is right. Yours is on the short list of blogs I read daily, and so though I hope you enjoy a break, hopefully you are back soon =).

I am a proud member of the 300... Take your break, but know we will still be looking for your return... You are one of my earliest regular reads!

You are indeed awesome. Perhaps your readership makes up in quality what it lacks in quantity.

Sarah -

I'll miss you. I check in every day.

On the other hand...I understand.

Hoping you keep on writing, but getting it if you don't

One of your original blog buddies....

Don't stay away too long - I love your posts!

Blast it, Tom. You beat me to the quote I was going to use...

I look forward to your blogging too, even though (sadly?) I am an inveterate lurker.

For what it's worth, your blog helped in a challenging time when then friend and now hubby was in Iraq.

"Um, try like 300 people."

300 Spartans?

I'm proud to be one of them!

And I'm so glad you're back!
