So Long



It is a sad day for me, today. I have decided to stop blogging. There are many reasons that I have come to this decision.

Blogging for me has become an unhealthy obsession and I feel like it is affecting my relationship with my kids and my husband. I always feel the need to be on the computer, and that is taking it's toll on my family. I need to spend more time with everyone.

I also feel like I am losing all of my close friends because all that is important to me now, are those people that leave comments on my blog.

And speaking of comments, I have begun to take it extremely personal that there are many people that read my blog that just don't bother to comment. I feel that maybe what I have to say is just not important, not meaningful, not funny. How can I be OK with getting 40 hits a day on my blog and just 2 or 3 little comments? I can't. So there you have it.

I apologize too, if I have come across like I am blatantly bragging about how awesome my kids are. I am just so proud of them and wanted to convey my feelings with words and pictures. I know now that this may have been construed in a different way. Instead of blogging about it, I should grab each and everyone of them and just kiss them, tell them to their face how wonderful I think they are and just leave it at that.

So, in the words of Bugs Bunny ----- th,th,th,that's all folks. Take care and happy blogging!

oh no!
you are one of the only normal moms in vegas! i am so sad. enjoy your family and seriously, f@1% everyone that thinks that you are bragging. your family is amazing and besides, that is what moms are supposed to do. encourage their families to be proud and support them no matter what. i'll miss you gini. maybe we'll cross paths at a playground someday.

Gini.. as your husband and best friend. We (kids and I) have been talking about your constant blogging and the fact that you have separated yourself from the circle. It seems that your posts and comments have become the priority in your life. It is no longer about the amount of words Garrin can say but rather about the amount of hits on your site. We support your decision to discontinue blogging. As an addict myself, I see the tell tale signs of addiction.. almost OCD'ish... We love you.. your husband and kids..!!

in addition.. maybe now you can get the laundry folded, hung and put away... the backyard finished, your truck cleaned, Garrin showered and dressed before 3 in the afternoon... love you baby. can't wait to come home to the new blog free you.

And to all your readers.... she has a maid. She never does anything around the house that involves work.. other than writing a check to merry maids every week.. thise are not our kids in the pictures she shows you, they are our neighbors. Like the photos that come in the frames from Target. None of it is real... I wonder if I really exisit or am I a figment of her blog??

sure...... April Fools... love you always. Me

ok my husband and i just finished reading all the anonymous comments. i think i got punked. if that is the case, then nice, very nice. my husband wants to know how i allowed myself to get bamboozled like this. i am going to go crawl away and hide in my embarrassment hole for a while.

Dear Red Head... the anonymous comments are from me (her husband). Please don't be embarrassed or feel bamboozled. After being married to Gini for the past 15 or so years... I knew she was fooling everyone (today is April Fools Day..) she is pretty predictable. I was fooling her readers into thinking she actually make this stuff up in her blog. I could only wish that was true. Not only does she make our lives complete with all she does, she also is an advocate for many causes she does not mention here on her blog. Gini has become a role model to me, my kids and her surrounding friends. Her blog is her way to un wrap herself from the day to day and to share that with you all... anyway, I liked your first comment to her, I am the first one to say f@1% what people think, and do what you want to do for yourself. She is and will continue to do this and more. Oh, and if you want to cross her path.. you can either pi$$ her off and she will find you or hang around the local pools.. and keep your ears open.. you will find her.

Bill (Gini's husband)

I don't really read them.... I'm more of a "look at all the pretty pictures" kind of reader....
