Retiring Jurl

Hey Jurls- I have some news....I'm retiring from the blog-o-sphere. These days I feel like I can't write about anything without getting in trouble with someone. Can't write about Husband, can't write about work for fear they will fire me, can't write about family (cause even when it's not them they might think it is so I sure can't write the true stuff), can't write about friends, and for some reason I've started holding back on even moi. And that's pretty much all the material I've got except my kids and when they're old enough to read they'll forbid me, too. So what's the point?

I'm not the kind of person that can write whatever and not care if hurts someone and I'm not the kind of person who can continue to self-edit with such severity. So, thank you so much for reading jurlpower. It's been a great almost two years.

Peace out and take care of yourselves.

OMG! I am so sorry to hear that you are not blogging. I will miss it terribly. I bet you could run out of material after 2 years. Maybe this is just a sabbatical?
I, for one, have LOVED your blog.

Thanks for the good times. Hope to see you in print elsewhere someday. I'll be the first in line to buy!

Thanks also for the kind words and motivational shove when needed. Even though we've never met, you were a friend when needed. Good luck on your journey. I'll miss you Jurl!

I am so sad. I just found your blog and I love it. You are a great writer and I hope you will do something in the future. Please let me know if you start blogging again or do anything in the future. Maybe do an anonymous blog where no one knows who it is (but let me know).

Are you kidding?!?! I so look forward to your new blogs. You write with such honesty - I love it! I love how to just call it like you see it. I relate to the struggles you've had, and love how you write so openly about them.

Please reconsider - those who get upset don't need to read the blog! :-) Good Luck, Jurl! I'll miss you dearly!

You tell is like is really is,
Even when it is none of your biz.
But we don't care, because it is true.
We don't know what we would read without you.
You say what you think,
you say what you feel,
and you always try to keep it real.
You have made us laugh, you have made us cry,
You touched our hearts and that is why.....
Your blog will be sorely missed, but we understand you want no one pissed.
So take care, and if you wish, write another blog, we love to hear you dish!
