Signing Out

Well, I need to apologize a little first about yesterday's posting. It was intended for an audience of one - me. I don't know why I felt the need to share it with the blogosphere.

Obviously I have a lot I need to work out. As such I can't continue this blog anymore. (Please, no crying.)

I hope you've found this space entertaining and informative. It was a pleasure writing for you and even a greater pleasure reading your feedback.

Good luck on all of your travels, and for those of you trying to get in, good luck with that as well.

And to you bloggers out there, keep up the good work.


  1. A mentor of mine recently shared the following quote with me: Finish every day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities crept in. Forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you should begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense. Ralph Waldo Emerson

    Good luck David. Very best wishes in your pursuit of self-exploration. Know that you're supported. Take deep breaths. Live.

  2. The FS blogosphere will miss your voice, but starting, maintaining, or shuttering a blog is something we all have (to decide) to do for ourselves. Best of luck.

  3. I'm sorry to hear that, but do what you need to to...and, yes, you will be missed!

  4. you will be highly missed! Your blog is in my top five. I wish you and your family all the best.

  5. David - best of luck with everything. You have nothing to apologize for. I hope only for the best for you and your wife and dog. Hope to read your thoughts again soon.

  6. Too bad. Thought yesterday's post was excellent. Think a lot of folks deal with the same issues. No shame in actually talking about it. More than most do. Best of luck.

  7. I am genuinely sad to see you go. I don't always click immediately on new blog posts- unless they're from EF'M. You have a wonderful way of writing and I know it's also been helpful for my husband to read about the journey of another male EFM.

    All the bset- I hope we see you back online one day.


  8. Good luck! I'll miss your anti-domestic-help insight and acronyms, even if I never actually used any of them myself.

  9. I agree with Rob- your last post was great, and I hope you will reconsider. Your voice is important to hear and helpful to so many. Best of luck.

  10. Very best of luck to you in your next endeavors. Enjoy your posting. Enjoy your work. Enjoy the FS and all its flaws. And if the mood strikes you, come back and visit us all ... you never know when you may need to offer a little more humor in all of our lives.

    Take care.

  11. You were the first person to post a comment on my blog, ever.

    You said, "Welcome to the fold! Good luck on getting off the you surely are learning, it is a slow moving process with minimal updates."
    -Jan 26, 2010 (And we are still sitting on the register, dammit.)

    I hope you and your wife and dog are doing well. Thinking of you all.

  12. David!!! Hi!!! I saw your comment on Emily's blog!

    Just want you to know that you are missed and that I'm thinking of you! I know I have your email address somewhere, goshdarnit, and when I finally find it, I'm totally emailing you.

    I hope all is well with you and Natalie and Tiffy. I hope life is going well for you guys. I think of you often! Blessings to you guys...

  13. I keep checking back to see if you've returned...

    Hope you're settling in to Hermosillo and that you'll be back at some point to tell us all about it. =)

  14. Hi David!

    I too, continue to watch this space. Hope all is well.
