Nothing To Say

I'm tired. Work is extremely intense, has been since the summer. I don't have the time or energy to think of chiddushim for this blog and I'm lucky if I post twice a week. My readership is dwindling. It's been almost four years and I'm way beyond done.

There's really no point in shutting down the blog because I may have some things to say from time to time time but I just can't commit to it anymore.

    Just send up a flare from time to time to let us know you're OK.

    Maybe you could start a 'Where's MOCHassid?' game where you simply give clues to where your travels have taken you and we can try to locate you on a map...

    Hey, I'm trying! :-)

    Hey MO,
    Me too. Busy @ work, & no head for blogging. Looks like I'm in good company!

    I'm sorry you feel that way. I always check in for your updates on TT. I really look forward to reading about her development.
    However, I do hope that you will continue on, even if it's only once in a while.

    All the best!

    Well, I for one still love your blog - it's one of the few I really look forward to reading - and hope we keep on hearing from you.

    It's very difficult to sustain an intersting blog for so long. Very few have done it. My buddy Treppenwitz is one of those very few. One tends to write about what's really important to you early on (as I did four years ago) and go downhill from there.

    Exacerbating things for me is that my job has become impossibly intense since the summer and uses up most of my psychic energy. When I do sit down to write, nothing much comes out anymore.

    Anon 8:13. I'll leave you with this (for now). Yesterday while driving carpool for OYD, MHW overheard TT say, "I'm very nervous." You can't make this stuff up.

    MoC -- we all know that jblogging is so 2005.

    Anything beyond, we know it's all for the love.

    You're absolved to go develop your ulcer in peace.

    Hey, you're semiretiring! If precedent is any indicator, that means we'll be getting posts pretty regularly for a while.

    In other news, we had Uncle Moishy in town today and the sound level was extreme. My husband took our oldest and even sitting all the way in the back, you could barely hear yourself think.

    You're so right.
