Goodbye.

I’ve done a lot of thinking over the last few weeks and I think I have made my decision. I am quitting cold turkey. No more blog. As wonderful as I think you all are, and as much as I love writing about what is going on in my life, I have decided that I HAVE to quit.

You see, there have been some fishy things going on since I have started this blog. At first, it was little things like weird e-mails I received from strangers that seemed to know way too much about me. It has since escaladed into freakish letters coming to my house and even strange cars outside my house at night. Yesterday took the cake - there....well....I hesitate to even say it, but there has been a threat on my life.

I can’t go into many details for....well, for fear, actually. I figure the less I say, the better. But I do feel that I did need to give you all an explanation and not just say "I quit my blog so there", and leave you all wondering.

I don’t know why it’s happening or where it’s coming from, but for the safety of myself and my family, I have to close this blog.

It has been an absolutely fantastic time, and I am extremely disheartened to say goodbye, but I must.

Please e-mail me if you would like to stay in touch. I will do my best at returning each one.

Oh, and one more thing…..
















April Fools.

Heh Heh. This is my favorite day of the year. GOT’CHA!!

  1. Whitney, seriously...
    Why did you have me going?
    Grr..I am more frustrated with myself for even half-way believing it! I thought...WHY DON'T I KNOW ABOUT ANY OF THESE EVENT!?!?
    Goodness gracious.....

  5. My heart STOPPED. I was like, "Noooo! I just started reading her blog a few weeks ago! Why didn't I start MONTHS ago so I could have more time to enjoy it?!" Then I thought about April Fool's Day. Thank goodness. (My heart started again.)

  8. Why oh why would I fall for this? I know you. You do this EVERY year. When will I learn? I was thinking why hasn't Terry told me about this? Love you anyway. Poor little Levi-he will never be safe.

  11. I know I don't personally know you, although I am glad you got my letters (wink, wink) but I think it's safe to say that you are officially, a meanie-face.

    Happy April Fools. I think I'm going pull a fast one on my husband and tell him I'm pregnant with number 3. I'll wait until I see the sign of tears before I let him know it's just a joke. Pray for him, and me...this could be bad. But so, so good! Muuuuahahahahah (as I rub my hands together and dart my eyes back in forth)

  13. Do you think I have anything to do with your tom foolery? For some strange reason, I think its conception began at our kitchen table about twenty years ago.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I thought you were serious! Then again, I was voted "Most Gulible" in High School. (Also "Best Dressed" I should point out!)

  34. PS- jokes to play on levi when he gets older...put food color in the milk and pour it over his cereal like nothing has changed. switch his bed, or move him so he wakes up someplace totally different.

  43. Freak me OUT!
    Seriously, I was feeling so bad for you.
    Last year I played a "joke" on my family about being pregnant (w/ my 4th)...part of the family was congratulating me and the "other" side was Pissed. It actually hurt my feelings that they'd be mad that I was pregnant...but I guess I learned my lesson (with that side of the fam).
    This yr. I have not played any pranks, but I kinda want to.
    You got us going girl.

    ReplyDelete
  44. omg! i should've known! i'm a faithful reader, and i was so disappointed i would never see pictures of levi! glad it was all just a joke...lol!

    ReplyDelete
  45. The second I started reading this, I thought, "wait a second...it's april 1st...this can't be for real." Well played Whitney! Well played!

    Didn't you tell people you were pregnant last year for your joke?

    ReplyDelete
  46. Whitney, you know you are good when one of my first thoughts upon waking up this morning was, "Its April Fools...don't believe anything Whitney writes on her blog!" You always get me, but not this year!!!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Girl!! I completely believed you and was feeling so bad for you!!! You definitely got me!!

    ReplyDelete
  48. I forgot that you loved April Fools.

    If that really was happening you wouldn't have said anything about the coming to your house...if it was REAL.

    Plus, you couldn't resist sharing pics of Levi when he comes. :)

    I sooo loved it!!!

    Let me know, PLEASE.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Oh and here is my email should you require... daldak01(at)yahoo.ca

    ReplyDelete
  66. Glad you were just kidding, b/c I just found you and decided you were cool. Not that the opinion of an almost 30 something, SAHM of a murder of boys is important to anyone other than myself, you still have won the cool blog of the day award from moi!

    ReplyDelete
  67. OMG....that totally got me! I was literally SCARED for you!!!

    That was a good one!

    ReplyDelete
  68. You are good! I don't think I've ever been April Fooled before, at least not since grade school. I don't even know you, but reading your blog cheers me up so much that I got teary and my stomach dropped into my shoes in worry for you. Then I laughed it back into place. It's strange that I've never met you, and yet I was terrified thinking you were serious. I'm glad you'll still be blogging. You inspire me to focus on the Lord more.

May the Lord bless you and keep you safe today! Thanks for the comment, friends! :)
