I've Got A Giftcard and I'm Not Keeping It!

I've been in a blogging slump like no other. It's not because I can't think of anything to say, I've got gads of things to tell you. It's not even that I don't have time, that's a cop out, too. It's more I don't even know HOW to pull all the little rubberbands stretched from one end of my life to the other together into a nice neat little ball. So how could I write about them? A dear friend emailed me today, and it's not so much the subject of the email that got to me, but more what she said in the end. She missed me.

I wrote her back and told her I was feeling overwhelmed with the digiscrapping, homeschooling and just being scattered. And I told her I had just the night previous been praying about this, because I have come to a crossroads. Let JameeForever go or consolidate the digi with the blog, because I can't do both effectively anymore. The digi is starting to take off, I'm not willing to let it go. So how would I even begin to consolidate the two very different blogs? I don't really know! In a very down moment, I prayed about this last night. I prayed, I listened. And I even had my goodbye post written in my head, had a list of the best 80s music to send me off into the sunset, a photo montage, a fun recipe to share, the works. Okay, no recipe, you know me better than that! But it was so real in my head I had tears in my eyes. This would be my great exit, music, pictures, stories of my best blogging moments, the amazing friends I've collected...and then I got the email and something in those words reached out and kicked me into gear!

I'm NOT done. I DO have time. And I would miss all y'all like no other if I didn't meddle inkeep up with your lives. So I got to thinking--what would be a great way to tell you I love you and I'm hanging around? Pictures? Maybe. A piece of Stacey gossip? Later. For sure, I have some. Details about my fab Tab bottles I bought off Ebay (thanks Steph)? Tempting, I know. But no, I really think I know y'all better than that. You love me so much that the ONLY think you want from me is..........a $20 gift card to Amazon.com baby. That's right. I'm bribing you to forgive my loser-blogger-status just one more time. Just tell me you want in, I'll do the random numba deal Monday. I've got pictures, stories, updates and a few Palin makes the world go round thoughts. No worries, they're all up here (knocking on head).

You can still hang out and just post once a week or so. Heck MadMad often goes two weeks without posting and her readers are still there.

I found your blog a couple of weeks ago, and I am so glad I did. I've enjoyed reading. Keep it up! :)

Besides, I just added you to my favorites and I have no idea how to take it off, so you have to stay-:~)

Blessings-

You don't have to bribe me. I'll always come back. I have missed you too and am glad you aren't totally giving up JameeForever. I'd be lost without some Stacey Gossip and pictures. Lost, I tell ya!
