Goodbye

This has been a tough decision, one I have not made easily, but it's the best thing for me, for us. I'm having to quit this blog.
I can't believe I just typed those words!! I could cry.


Here's the low-down:
It started innocently enough with anonymous comments, (that have sinced been deleted) here and there on several posts throughout this past year. And then letters starting coming to our home and I have never given out our address on my blog. Last month someone started knocking on our door at night and then when we go answer it, no one was there. Same with the phone ringing. It had only happened once so we didn't make a big deal about it. But, it happened again last night.
It really has started to scare us so we feel that this is the best decision.
We haven't involved the police yet, but aren't afraid to do so.

I can't say for certain if it definitely is connected to this blog, but for safety's sake this will have to be goodbye! I so enjoy blogging and will miss you all.
Some of you I have never had the chance to meet and yet you have shared YEARS with me. Thank you for that.
For welcoming me into your world.
Your life.
This is a sad day for me. However, if you'd like to keep in touch, please send me your email address and we can do so and also, I'll be keeping my facebook account up and running. I may decide to continue blogging privately, but haven't made that decision as of now.



It's been quite a ride and I've enjoyed every moment along the way!!!
Oh, one more thing...


















April Fools!!!
hee hee!! Oh my word,
I'm so sorry I just did that to you,
but it WAS kinda fun!

Oh my word, I'm so mean,
do you still love me??!!

Oh. My. Goodness. Seriously? You had me from "Good-bye". I couldn't believe you were 'leaving' the blog world. You're like the Queen of Blog Land.

Faith said...

I couldn't believe what I was reading BUT when I got to the part were you weren't sure if you were going to continue blogging privately I thought that it had to be some kind of joke.
You had me feeling frightened for you. Glad you are not leaving the blog world!

Cheree said...

and my thoughts were to tell you to get a dog like mine who doesn't like strangers...and how sad it was cause i just figured out how to 'follow' your blog. Whatever that does for me I don't really know.

So terrible, Janelle! Happy April Fools! :-)

The Trendy Family said...

That was crazy... I was starting to think about my blog and maybe I should put it private! But know I feel so much better!!! Have a great day!!

Jessica Sue said...

I don't get fooled much, but... I had to say I was sad when I read it and then confused and then shocked and then fooled! (neighbor)

Well "Second Chowd" (with an uncanny ability to over-analyze!) was thinking, "Surely not--but more importantly why on earth hasn't she told me this awful stuff has been happening?!" I wasn't completely fooled though, I'll have you know. Really.

Chrisy said...

<3

Because yours is a blog I frequent often, I was beginning to wonder what life would be like not hearing of your adventures, encouragement and inspiration. I also fell for your trick but am happy it was just that and not for real. When I did teasing stuff my mother would say, "Du bish mir eine!" I'd like to say that to you now. Ruthie

Lindsey said...

Oh, I'm just so glad that you're not going to stop blogging - and that no weirdo is knocking on your door at night! I've loved every moment of reading your blog and hope that you'll be blogging for a long time more!

Montana Friend said...

From your Montana friend...OKAY YOUR GOT ME!!! I was sure something went terribly wrong. So glad that you and your family are okay. Also, so glad to see you visited my blog as well. Honestly, I was touched...

Chris & Megan said...

Janelle, you are just not right!!! Seriously!!:)

Kara Stoltzfus said...

not buying it. figured i would know of such drama, if it were indeed happening. : )


glad you aren't leaving us.

Bess said...

OH MY WORD. I was sitting here reading, with a sinking feeling in my stomach, ready to go lock the doors, about to call Curt over and tell him to read this! You are too crazy!!! :)
