How does one end a blog?

It was fitting that the ending this morning was drizzly and gray. The beginning was drizzly and gray, too - the only difference being about 40 degrees. The morning matched the mood - solemn and a bit weepy.

In just a few minutes, the judge ruled that the marriage was over and wished us only good things in the future. Too bad that last decree doesn't carry much weight. I too only wish good things for the future, but this is life and it happens without regard to the plan.

It is funny that I do feel a bit different - kind of undefined. A bit like the exoskeleton is too large and I'm bumping around inside. I don't feel like a failure, I don't feel bitter, I don't even feel terribly sad. I feel a bit poignant, a fair amout of relief, and as always, curiosity.

Although this blog has ended, you can always follow the individuals on Facebook, Twitter, or by e-mail and phone calls. Who knows, maybe I'll change the name and continue the tales of a boy named Benjamin. Although, I don't think high-schoolers much like being the subjects of mom's blog. So FB is probably your best bet.

Three weeks later and this just barely showed up on my blog list. Kim, I will really miss your blog. I won't lie. I like to read what you're up to in long form. You are a very good writer and this last, it got me right >>here<<.

I love you and I will miss the way things used to be. But I look forward to a bright future ahead for you all . . . and I will hear all about it on facebook.

I, too, will miss reading about your adventures. Blogs have their good sides, at least for the readers. I know they're a lot of work (which is one reason I don't add to mine very often). Anyway, we wish all three of you only the best. Jim follows facebook, so we'll keep in touch that way.
To infinity . . . and beyond!
